from the expert editorial team

Editor's note: This review was done in January 2013 about the 2014 Infiniti Q50. Little of substance has changed with this year's model.

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.'s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.

Entertaining, problem-free, comfortable, durable,

by Lucky from Anaheim on June 29, 2020

Great blend of performance, durability, interior room, quality finish, and looks. I love the 300 hp, the AWD (in Minnesota and Utah), and the handling is very nimble for a large 4-door. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
