At last week’s Montreal International Auto Show, Infiniti was given not one, but two awards by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).  Infiniti earned the AJAC Best New Technology awards for innovation and safety, with honors being handed to Infiniti’s Direct Adaptive Steering and Predictive Forward Collision Warning, respectively.

“It is a thrill and an honor to have so many of Canada’s top journalists recognize these worlds-first technologies and their impact to not only the industry, but also the benefits to the individual driver,” said Wendy Durward, Director of Infiniti Canada, in a statement released by the automaker.  “The Infiniti Q50 sports sedan represents our commitment to finding new levels of inspired performance.  Having AJAC recognize it as the best new luxury car over $50,000 as well as name two of its technologies as the best of the year is great feedback that we’ve done just that.”

Indeed, you read that right: AJAC also named the all-new Q50 sports sedan its 2014 Best New Luxury Car (over $50k).  Canadians certainly love them some Infiniti, that’s for true.

The AJAC Best New Technology awards recognize those innovations that make the lives of car buyers easier.  The Best New Innovation-winning DAS utilizes “steer-by-wire” technology to eliminate vibrations and potential mechanical losses while improving steering response.  The Best New Safety Technology-winning PFCW won for its ability to help prevent crashes by notifying drivers of impending risks ahead of their field of vision.
