Will Infiniti’s ProPilot Appear In The Q30?



The 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show is where some automakers show off their latest vehicles and Infiniti was no different with the debut of their new QX50 crossover. One of its highlights is the incorporation of Nissan's ProPilot semi-autonomous driver assist system. In fact, the QX50 is Infiniti’s first model to feature said system.

Though not fully autonomous, ProPilot will take the monotony of driving in rush hour by controlling acceleration, steering and braking so you don’t have to. This way, drivers won’t have to navigate stop-and-go traffic themselves and give that leg a break. The system can already be found in the 2018 Nissan Rogue and Leaf.

Nissan tells us to just think of it as a sort of cruise control. If it’s designed similar to what we’d find in the Rouge, ProPilot should be activated via a blue ‘ON’ button integrated into the steering wheel. Once a vehicle reaches the desired speed, drivers can set the Intelligent Cruise Control.

Of course with the Q30 already in circulation, we don’t expect Infiniti to offer us this feature in the next model year. But perhaps it’ll become a standard option in every model later on and we could see ProPilot in the next generation Q30.

The biggest mistake they can make is by not offering it on cheaper models that can still sell in good volume and right now Infiniti needs all they can to increase sales volume. They aren't exactly operating on a level similar to Lexus so that's something to consider.

I'd rather see Infiniti to come up with their own system, or at least slightly modified ProPilot with a different name tag. I don't think that collaboration between Nissan and Infiniti here is a good move, in my opinion, Infiniti should stay above Nissan in each and every aspect of their Q30.

If that's the case then they should at least make it a system that is very self explanatory much like picking up any smartphone or tablet for the average user. The worst they can do is re-engineer and try to rework a layout. iDrive 5.0 is a good example of what they could mimic.
