A savvy shopping fashionista needs a smart phone to help her shop, but a car that can do the same is even better.
Meet the Infiniti Q50. Not only does this car have amazing safety features (including braking for you, in case you’re distracted by the many shopping bags in your backseat, and outside cameras at all angles), but it also has a Points of Interest application that allows you to sort through nearby retailers and have them mapped out for you. And just like your smart phone, you just touch the screen to make your selections.
Park Place Infiniti let me borrow a Q50 to test run on the weekend of my birthday, and at first, I was intimidated. With so many impressive features, I feared that I would never be able to figure the car out. But after a 30-minute session with my salesperson, I felt confident and eager to play with the Q50, especially because I knew how safe the car is.
Of course, the first thing I did was test out the Points of Interest app and let the car tell me where to shop. But I also enjoyed the car’s Bluetooth technology, which synced with my iPhone and played my music over the Bose speaker system, the keyless entry and push start/stop ignition, the luxurious leather seats, and the customization features that allowed me to set my seat and driving style preferences. Each time I re-entered the car and pushed the start button, I was greeted and my settings returned to my customized preferences. Very cool!
This luxury sports sedan starts at $36,700, which is what I like to call affordable luxury. It feels like a million bucks. It drives like a million bucks. But it doesn’t cost nearly that.
Soon, the car maker will be adding social media (Twitter and Facebook) and music (Pandora) apps to the car’s technological features. So if you’re not only a shopping-addicted fashionista but also a social butterfly, then this smart, reliable and stylish car is the car for you.
