The new 2014 Infiniti Q50 gets a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), completing its hat trick. Both V6 and Hybrid models, rear- and all-wheel-drive, have been tested and praised for their world’s first safety technologies.

The technologies that set the Q50 apart and give it such security include Active Lane Control (ALC) and Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), as well as the car’s standard Advanced Air Bag System (AABS), front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags and standard roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection. So it’s not just the number of safety gears you can cram into a car. It’s how you arrange them that matters.

Infiniti Q50 also benefits from world’s first steer-by-wire system in a production car with a dynamic adaptive system. This system works in tandem with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and gives the car the capability to correct the car’s direction of travel if the driver is not paying attention and crossing lines.

Another impressive feature is the Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), which helps warn drivers of certain risks that lie beyond their field of view. It senses not only the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one, providing audible and visual warnings when traffic may be slowing ahead.
