2019 INFINITI Q50 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Infiniti Q50?

The five-seat Q50 is Infiniti’s luxury sports sedan that blends spirited driving, comfort and technology. The base 2.0t Pure trim level is powered by a 208-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while 3.0t Luxe and 3.0t Sport models get a 300-hp, twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 under the hood. The performance-oriented Red Sport trim features a 400-hp variant of the V-6. All models use a seven-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Lexus IS.

What’s New on the 2019 Infiniti Q50?

Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are now standard. The hybrid version of the Q50 has been dropped.

What Features in the 2019 Infiniti Q50 Are Most Important?

Those interested in performance should consider the Q50 Red Sport with its 400-hp engine. While the car's dual-screen setup for audio, navigation and vehicle information is unique, it's also complicated to use. Active safety features like blind spot warning, full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane departure prevention are optional.

Should I Buy the 2019 Infiniti Q50?

Compared to its class, the Q50 has more losses than wins. While the Q50 earns praise for its powerful V-6 engine, its complicated multimedia system and underwhelming driving feel hold it back. With other great options in the sports sedan class, it's worth your while to check out the competition.

Infiniti just isn’t the same

Infinity just isn’t what they used to be. I used to be a proud owner of Sewell Infiniti’s and especially loved the G 37. Thought I would give the newer generation a shot and was very disappointed. Bought a pre-certified red sport 400 and ended up having to get a new long block. There is an inherent coolant issue that even the engineers haven’t found out. Horrible depreciation immediately. I highly recommend looking at something else.

Infinity just isn’t what it used to be

I was always a long time and dedicated Infiniti enthusiast. Having on several G 37‘s I always love that they still had a rear wheel drive platform. However, when they went to the new naming convention, and Renault really started putting their imprint on the company, things went South. I was very disappointed when I got a Q 50 red sport in seeing how the quality of materials and the fit and finished had diminished. Sadly, I ended up having to get the engine replaced thankfully under warranty. Apparently there is a mysterious, disappearing coolant issue that Infiniti can’t even totally pinpoint. It took me some battling with corporate to get it done, but I did. Ended up trading in the car so that I wouldn’t have to go through it again, but it’s certainly affected the trade in value having to have had a new motor put in at 22,000 miles. Infiniti just isn’t what it used to be.
