About INFINITI Q50

The freshly upgraded 2018 Infiniti Q50 remains one of the best values in a highly competitive field of sporty, small luxury sedans. Gorgeous, comfortable and boasting one of the lowest starting prices in its class, Infiniti’s best-selling model also has a distinct power advantage when outfitted with its most popular engine, a 300-horsepower turbocharged V6. There are trade-offs, too, but the 2018 Infiniti Q50 is a better luxury sport sedan than almost any segment shopper needs, even if it doesn’t offer everything everyone wants.

What's new for 2018?
2018 INFINITI Q50

The current-generation Q50 debuted for the 2014 model year, but has undergone a steady stream of significant enhancements since. Exterior updates this year include revised front and rear styling along with new taillights across the board, with 3.0t Sport and Red Sport 400 models distinguished by a more aggressive front fascia. Interior changes include a new steering wheel, new shift knob and more stitching. The trim grades have also been rethought, with the lineup now divided into Pure, Luxe, Sport and Red Sport 400 versions. And if you were holding out until Infiniti offered the Q50 in a Mocha Almond coating, now’s the time to grab your checkbook and run to the dealer.

"I recently Purchased a 2015 Q50 AWD Premium with Navigation. I could not be happier with my decision. I drove all other competitors from America, Europe, and Japan. It was down to the TLX and Q50. The power and handling won vs the technology in the TLX. After a month the car does not disappoint. I previously owned 2 G series and this is more powerful/ luxurious and Handles just as nice. Anyone that chooses the 3 series or the IS from Lexus over this car is nuts."

"This vehicle is absolutely amazing. Although my Q50 is a 2015 with the 3.7 V6 it still has horsepower and torque that will throw you in the back of the seat if you want it to. When taking tight turns the vehicle does feel heavy and has a bit of understeer, however you can throw it around a corner and get the back to slide out. The technology in this car is unparalleled and setting a new goal for the car industry. I will say i wish this car came with a six speed transmission to make it more of a "sports sedan" along with a more sport tuned suspension. this would make up for the understeer and make it the ultimate machine."

"My wife and I have been shopping for a new vehicle for the past year and wre specifically looking at the entry level luxury market, I.e. Lexus IS, BMW 3 series, Audi A4, and Mercedes C class. When test driving all of these vehicles, we realized only the BMW had character unless you decided to go wih the S line in Audi, or the F sport in Lexus, which does not add much character to begin with, or an AMG with Mercedes. Of course this adds to the bottom line significantly and also takes away from fuel economy. We own the Hybrid S Q50 and boy oh boy, does this car rock. It is fast, sleek looking, curb appeal to the max, and great on gas efficiency. We get close to 33 MPG Highway and 30 city. This car not only offers tech that no other car offers, but it also gives you a chance to drive with performance and save at the pump. The Hygani Blue is just melting desire with a luxuris interior including NASA inspired seats, a tablet system interface and my oh my Bose studio on wheels is one of the industry's best. For 56K this car is worth every penny and rivals the best of the the elite german's with suped up engines costing you about 15 to 25 K more. Test drive the car yourself, and you will see the amazing performance and tech. Don't go for the gas engine and the run flat tires, it doesn't do the car justice. You need to get the hybrid sports performance if you want to experience what Infiniti inteded their customers to experience."
