Should I Buy the 2021 Infiniti Q50?

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

Had G35 before. Very reliable car.

Love the roominess inside and the way it drives so much that I purchased a second time. It has more noise than some, but I don't find it unpleasant and it is much improved from prior years. Tested another car that was so quiet that it felt strange. I like a little sound when driving. Find it soothing actually. This car feels much roomier inside than others.

Love it! Comfort, sporty, smooth ride..

I love the interior designed as much as the exterior… smooth, sporty, beautiful, & comfortable. Just completely satisfied ❤️. Totally recommended for my friends & family…

Tenth Infiniti that I've owned...

While the Q50 isn't without faults, it is as much bang for the buck as there is on the road. The rear seats and trunk could use a little more room...but kick this thing in gear and it will scream. Lots of torque and plenty of hp. Put it in Sport Mode at your own risk, because it will get away from you if not careful! This is my third Q50 - not one has ever been in the shop for any repair. If you want a finicky-free car that is fun to drive- without dropping 60 or 65 grand, check this out.
