2015 Infiniti Q50 What's new for 2015? 
2015 Infiniti Q50

The 2015 Infiniti Q50 is mostly carryover this year, after being introduced last year as an all-new model. The only upgrade of note is a new wheel-and-tire package that adds 19-inch, lightweight RAYS wheels.

About Infiniti Q50

Available in gasoline or gasoline/electric hybrid models, the 2015 Infiniti Q50 aims to seduce BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4 fans to an Infiniti dealership instead. With striking good looks and the horsepower to back it up, the Infiniti Q50 carries over virtually unchanged, save for a new lightweight wheel package from RAYS. Inside, the comfortable interior offers up a host of advanced electronics, including a fully electronic steering system, with no physical connection between the steering wheel and the front wheels. While some may be turned off by the overly-complex touch-screen controls and electronic driver assists, the Infiniti Q50 offers a starting price well under $40,000. If you want to go old-school, the last-generation G37 is still available as the Infiniti Q40.

"We test drove BMW 3 series and A4 . But after driving Q50 premium, i'll never go back to the Germans .I think they have to do lots of catch up in providing driver comforts . When compared to Q50 they both look way behind . So far enjoying every bit of it . Even received compliments on the looks ( chestnut bronze + Wheat leather )."

"After 3 weeks and 800 miles I have to say that the ride quality on the Q50S is way too stiff and troublesome. I get to work and I feel like I took a punch to the kidneys. I traded in a 2009 Maxima sport that had a stiff suspension but great ride quality. Had a 2002 3 Series before that with sport suspension and great ride quality. I'm thinking the run-flat tires on the Q50 are the culprit. I may have to switch to regular tires. Got to check with the dealer. Riding on a flat road is a dream though. Local everyday roads can be a nightmare. The steer by wire is kind of cool but takes a bit getting used to, especially while rounding corners quickly. Definitely has a different feel. I just don't get how bad the sound system is. Worst of any car I've ever owned. I don't think it's the bose speakers, has something to do with the radio. Gonna check with dealer on that too. I hope its just a software update. Keeping my fingers crossed."

"I have owned a G35 for many years and are looking for a replacement. I have liked my G, so I waited for the Q to come out. I test drove the hybrid and the Q50 sport. I have to say, I did not like the hybrid. If you are moving from a hybrid, it is probably fine. I did not like the "lag" you experience in the power off the line due to the engine shutting off and only having battery power. I guess I was expecting it to be more like the Tesla:). However, when I got in the gas only sport model, I was impressed with the power and braking over my G35. It isn't any better than the G37 it replaced, but, nonetheless, it is impressive. The Bose studio on wheels is simply amazing. Overall, I really liked the interior. The only negative I had was I didn't care for the radio controls (minor point). I have read that the roof line is a problem. I am 6' 1" and I didn't notice this. Not to say it isn't a problem, but it couldn't have been that bad I didn't notice. As for the exterior, I really like the updated wheels and front end of the sport. Curb appeal is very good on this car. Bottom line, I am in negotiations to purchase the G37 Sport."
