Infiniti's mid-size sports sedan saw a series of updates last year. Like a new headlight and grille treatment. That means that Infiniti isn't making any changes to the car for 2019.
So let's look at what the car still offers. Like four powertrain options that range from a 208 hp turbo-four to a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 in 300 or 400 hp Red Sport offerings, and a 3.5L V6 hybrid option. The hybrid comes with a combined 360 hp and improved fuel economy. No matter which engine you pick, you get a seven-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.
The Q50 really stands out thanks to the steer-by-wire system it offers on 3.0T models. Infiniti made the system offer better feel than before, though it is still not quite the same feel as a conventional system. The car also offers up dynamic digital suspension. a set of electronically adjustable dampers that adjust for your set drive mode.
The infotainment system splits the opinions of our writers with a dual screen and button-heavy layout. What we can all agree on is that it's missing Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2.0T and 300 hp 3.0T engines start with the Luxe trim. That gets you 18-inch alloys, LED headlights, dual-zone climate, heated seats and wheel, and moonroof. 3.0T Signature adds 19-inch alloys, leather sport seats with thigh extension, and special exterior trim. Sport adds the digital suspension along with sport brakes and paddle shifters.
The Red Sport 400 adds the 400 hp V6, leather sport seats with thigh extension, fast ratio steering, unique alloys, Bose audio, and a special climate control system with Grape Polyphenol filter.
The hybrid offers stop-start, sport suspension, and, well, a hybrid system.
Fuel economy for the 2.0T is 10.7 L/100 km city, 8.6 highway. The 300 hp V6 is 12.4/8.7 with the 400 hp version rated for 12.5/9.3. The hybrid sips to the tune of 9.1 city, 7.7 highway.
