About Infiniti Q50

The elegantly styled Infiniti Q50 has a fun, sporting attitude that can bring out the big kid in anyone. Bolstered by potent engines, plus cutting-edge electronic driver assists and safety tech, the Q50 returns for 2017 with updates that build on last year's major changes. For 2016, the Q50 received an all-new gas engine lineup consisting of twin-turbo V6 engines and a turbocharged 4-cylinder, which joined the unchanged hybrid option. This quartet is tempting for shoppers who are eyeing the Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3 Series. The Infiniti also has advanced suspension and steering choices, including a fully electronic steering system with no physical connection between the steering wheel and the front wheels. Another appealing aspect of the Q50? Pricing starts at under $35,000.

"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."

"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."

"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."
