The 2019 Infiniti Q50 is aimed at the fiercely competitive compact sports sedan segment and is right on target in some important ways. A sleek exterior design and elegant cabin materials highlight its luxury. Plus, its dedicated performance model fills the role of a high-speed flagship. The Q50 also boasts features including a high-tech steer-by-wire system. The system operates without a physical connection between the steering wheel and the front wheels. (Mechanical steering is on board as a backup.)
The Q50 has seating for five people. It’s available in 2.0t Pure, 3.0t Luxe, 3.0t Sport and Red Sport 400 trim levels. Infiniti supplies a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The Q50’s options include two twin-turbocharged V6 engines and all-wheel drive.
Standard forward emergency braking and forward-collision warning are new for 2019.
The Q50 competes against high-end sports sedans such as the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Lexus IS.
Infiniti designers bring out the Q50’s athleticism with smooth sheet metal and subtle curves. The curved leading edge for the rear roof pillars is a hallmark of the brand.
The Q50 Pure trim is the base model. Standard features include LED headlights, LED foglights, LED turn signals, daytime running lights, heated mirrors, dual exhaust outlets and 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Exclusive front fascias are standard with the 3.0t Sport and Red Sport 400 trim levels. Available features for the Q50 include adaptive auto-leveling headlights, a moonroof, reverse tilt-down mirrors and 18- and 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The 2019 Q50 has a dual-cockpit cabin. The center stack flows between the front seats. The stack itself is distinguished by two vertically arranged infotainment screens that are bordered by two vertical columns of climate controls. The appearance is akin to a space-age control panel. The trunk capacity of the Q50 is 13.5 cubic feet. That can be expanded with available 60/40-split-folding rear seats.
Infiniti provides standard leatherette seating surfaces, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, maple wood trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel. Options include leather upholstery, heated front sport seats, aluminum trim and a heated steering wheel with a power-adjustable column.
The Q50 2.0t Pure model has a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It produces 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. With the 3.0t Luxe and Sport trims, a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 is standard. That engine produces 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A similar engine is standard for the Red Sport 400 but the output is raised to 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard. All-wheel drive is available for all trims.
The EPA reports fuel economy ratings of 23/30 mpg city/highway for the Q50 with its standard powertrain.
Spirited driving is a hallmark of all Q50 trim levels. The twin-turbo engines are able to add increasingly high levels of thrust. The Q50’s capable suspension and braking systems are never overpowered.
Standard technology for the Q50 includes an 8-inch upper touchscreen, a 7-inch lower touchscreen, Bluetooth, HD Radio, satellite radio, two USB ports, an auxiliary input jack, a CD player and six speakers. A navigation system and a 16-speaker Bose audio system are also available.
The Q50 is equipped with standard driver-assistance features like automatic forward emergency braking, forward collision warning and a rearview camera. Infiniti offers further options including adaptive cruise control, automatic reverse emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assistance, rear cross-traffic alert and a surround-view camera system.
"Overall this is a really good sport sedan. The engine is awesome...great smooth acceleration with acceptable gas mileage. The only issue I have is with the electronics. Needs Apple Carplay or at least a better user interface with my phone."
Comfortable with a well laid out dashboard.
Decent gas mileage, but seems the tires seem to be wearing quickly.
