Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Infiniti Q50 is powerful, well-equipped luxury sedan that doesn't quite match up to Germany's finest yet.

Pros
Still beautiful following refresh
Red Sport 400's engine is stellar
Hybrid's efficiency
Updated interior impresses

Cons
Direct Adaptive Steering isn't great
Still doesn't feel as premium as rivals

Infiniti’s artfully sculpted and muscular midsizer, the Q50, but its performance is less scintillating. The 208-hp turbo 2.0-liter inline-four will disappoint enthusiasts, but a 300-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 is offered, as is a hybrid powertrain good for 360 hp and 32-mpg highway. All Q50s get a seven-speed automatic and either rear- or all-wheel drive.

Pros
Distinctive and attractive exterior,
effortless power.

Cons
Numb steering,
outdated interior layout,
imperfect transmission programming.

The 2018 Infiniti Q50 ranked #16 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Infiniti Q50 has a score of 8.0 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 44 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful V6 engines
Lots of active safety features
Above-average trunk space

Cons
Dual-screen setup may be confusing for some
Poor gas mileage

The S4’s understated looks won’t snap necks on the street, but its 354-hp turbo 3.0-liter V-6 and all-wheel-drive traction can realign your spine on demand. Sorry stick-shift purists, an eight-speed automatic is the sole gearbox. With standard massaging front seats and premium interior materials, the sophisticated sedan also pampers passengers.

Pros
Solid performance,
stealthy road presence,
refined and high-tech cabin.

Cons
Short on engagement behind the wheel,
fierce competitors in the same showroom.

By:

The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases.

Pros
Sharp exterior
Comfortable in front or back
Plentiful power from V-6
Comfortable ride
Good standard equipement

Cons
Transmission seems hesitant
Finicky optional sport steering
Drama-less?
Missing S5's power dome

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Pros
Strong acceleration
Nimble handling
Well-appointed interior

Cons
Small trunk
Looks too conservative
Clunky start/stop system
