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outdated interior layout,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.
