2015 INFINITI Q50

What We Like

Silky styling; handsome interior; Hybrid model offers gutsy 360-horsepower powerplant; techy features ease the stress of driving in traffic; hard buttons and dual touchscreens make multimedia navigation easier

What We Don't

Steer-by-wire feature feels disconcerting during hard cornering; sophisticated driver-assist systems aren't for everyone, can feel intrusive; differing resolutions make dual touchscreens feel mismatched

Overview

What's New in the 2015 INFINITI Q50?

For 2015, a new tire and wheel package, featuring lightweight Rays 19-inch alloy wheels, joins the options list. 

Which Q50 is the Best?

With so many versions of the Q50, it's hard to say which is best. If we were looking for the most content at the best price, the Q50 3.7 Premium has just about everything you need with enough wiggle room to add a few options and still keep the price well under $50,000. The Q50S 3.7 is a great driver's car, but its ride may be too harsh for a nonenthusiast. If you want maximum fuel economy, all-season traction and just a hint of being green, the Q50 all-wheel-drive Hybrid Premium would be our second choice. Find a Infiniti Q50 for sale

Competition

2015 INFINITI Q50 vs the competition

2015 Audi A4 -- Audi's A4 delivers a more restrained package that nonetheless manages to attract a strong share of car shoppers in this segment. We think it has one of the nicest interiors in the class.

2015 BMW 3 Series -- The BMW 320i sedan opens up the Bavarian brand to more buyers, but its turbocharged 4-cylinder might not appeal to luxury buyers, and there is no all-wheel-drive hybrid model.

2015 Lexus IS 250 -- The other Japanese offering in this hotly contested category, the Lexus IS 250, delivers solid styling and comfort, but its interior isn't as cohesive or elegant as the Infiniti.

Used Infiniti M45 -- A 2011-2013 Infiniti M offers similar styling, the option of V8 engine and a more luxurious interior, all while staying within the Infiniti family.
