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outdated interior layout,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.

Lots of active safety features

The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V scorches the earth, and leaves the E63 and RS7 with some burn marks.

Pros
Shocking acceleration
Beautifully composed at speed
Lively, connected steering
Brilliantly balanced

Cons
Brash looks aren’t for everyone
Poor IIHS crash-test scores
Back seat lacks rivals’ space

By:

For 2018, the CTS-V gains an updated infotainment system interface and two USB charge ports for the rear passengers.

PROS
One of the most powerful sedans on the road
Far cheaper than comparably powered performance sedans
Ultra-sophisticated suspension delivers world-class ride and handling
Superior support from optional sport seats

CONS
Ride may be too rough for some
Tech interface may frustrate
Small trunk
Less luxurious cabin than those of competitors
