Moderate overlap front

Rating applies to 2018-19 models

Tested vehicle: 2018 Infiniti Q50 3.0t 4-door

The Infiniti G was redesigned for the 2014 model year and renamed the Q50. Beginning with 2016 Q50 models, the frontal airbags and driver seat belt were modified. Beginning with 2018 models, the steering wheel and driver frontal airbag were further modified to improve occupant protection in small overlap and moderate overlap frontal crashes.

Moderate overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Nissan as part of frontal crash test verification. Because the vehicle structure was unchanged, the structure rating is based on results from this test and two earlier tests of 2014 and 2016 Q50 models conducted by Nissan.
