Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

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.
