Nissan took the wraps off the refreshed Skyline sedan in Japan, and if you’re thinking it’s the Infiniti Q50 with a different grille, you’d be right. The real star of this update isn’t the car itself, it’s the new driver assistance tech suite it offers. Nissan has debuted an upgraded version of ProPilot Assist, dubbed ProPilot 2.0, and we suspect it will come to North America in the Infiniti Q50.

Unlike the ProPilot Assist system currently found in the Nissan Altima, Leaf, Rogue and Rogue Sport, and Infiniti QX50, ProPilot 2.0 takes things up a notch by allowing hands-free operation on the highway. The driver must first enter a destination into the navigation system, creating a predefined travel route. Once you’re on the highway, ProPilot 2.0 will help you with merging, changing lanes, and exiting. While cruising, ProPilot 2.0 enables hands-free operation but requires the driver to keep his or her attention on the road in case there’s a need to take over. The system can judge the right amount of timing for passing and merging using navigation and its array of cameras and radar sensors.

Other updates on the Skyline include a revised suspension that Nissan says reduces vibrations and a new version of Direct Adaptive Steering, a steer-by-wire system that first debuted in the Infiniti Q50 for the 2014 model year. It also receives updated NissanConnect multimedia integration with over-the-air map updates.

Although the Nissan Skyline is essentially the Japanese market version of the Infiniti Q50, the latter will likely get the same updates as part of another significant refresh. Its 2016 model-year refresh made it the first vehicle under the Nissan corporate umbrella to use the brand’s new VR30 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6, and it remains the only model to offer it. Nissan typically gives its latest technologies to Infiniti vehicles first, and we expect that will be the case when ProPilot 2.0 hits our shores.
