2015 INFINITI Q50 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2015 Infiniti Q50?

The 2015 Infiniti Q50 is a compact luxury sedan with seating for five, succeeding the G37 in mildly updated form. The Q50 competes with the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS and Lexus IS. It's available in three trim levels: Base, Premium and Sport. All trims are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. The Q50 Hybrid is covered separately.

What's New on the 2015 Infiniti Q50?

Besides eliminating the stick shift, there are no significant changes for the 2015 model year.

How Does the 2015 Infiniti Q50 Compare to Other Luxury Sedans?

The Infiniti Q50 builds on the already successful G37 with its sportiness, comfort and sophistication. It beats the ATS, IS 350 and Acura TL for front and rear headroom, the Caddy and Acura for front legroom and the Cadillac and Lexus for rear legroom.

What Features on the 2015 Infiniti Q50 Are Most Important?

The Infiniti Q50 is equipped with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine that produces 328 horsepower and is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Direct Adaptive Steering is available.

Significant standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated power mirrors, front fog lights, a rear window defroster, automatic temperature control and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Available amenities include a power moonroof, memory seat and auto-dimming rearview mirror.

As is required on all new vehicles, the Infiniti Q50 includes front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtains are also standard. Available safety features include forward collision warning, blind spot warning, automatic emergency braking, backup collision intervention, lane departure prevention and active lane control.

Should I Buy the 2015 Infiniti Q50?

The Q50 has a lot to offer when it comes to interior quality, horsepower and safety amenities. However, the stick shift has been eliminated for this model year, the standard steering is too light and the option packages are a bit pricey.

1st luxury car purchase

Take Dodge, Ford and Subaru owners to gapplebee's for their daily serving. Best stock car value 👌 The seats are super comfortable and putting resonators on makes her purr!

I wouldn’t choose this car again

The car ok. Once it hits 100k miles it will have issues. It eats up gas and it rides ok. Nothing fancy about the car. Let Infiniti be your last option.

5.0

Extremely fun to drive and rewarding to own.

This car should be at the top of everyone's list who is looking for a compact sports Sedan. Have driven a variety of cars and this one outperforms the Audi, the Lexus IS350, the Lexus GS350, and has much more headroom and overall cabin space than the IS350. The infotainment system is not overly complicated, and the engine and drop won and breaks all respond well. The styling is sleek and aggressive while maintaining aerodynamics. If you can keep your foot out of the throttle and resist the urge to listen to the Symphony created by 330 horses coming out of 3.7 liters at 7500 rpm, then you will be rewarded with over 30 miles a gallon on the highway. The court is a little smallish on the inside, but the engineers did a good job at making sure every ants counted. The cup holders are smallish and there is not an abundance of storage in the globox or the console, but it is overall a great vehicle and the best part was it did not take long to get my wife on board.
