Infiniti’s elegant Q50 is a strong contender in the mid-size performance saloon class, offering a very attractive alternative to cars such as the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes C220. The Q50 has won several awards, including the Ritvo Design and Elegance award from the New England Motor Press Association, and the Wards 10 Best User Experiences award 2016, in recognition of the car’s intuitive vehicle systems and interfaces and their contribution to safety.
A large grille, distinctive narrow headlights and sleek contours all contribute to the sophisticated styling of the Infiniti Q50. Trim levels start with the SE edition, which gives you 17.5-inch alloy wheels fitted with run-flat tyres. Wheels are upgraded to 19-inch alloys on the Sport trim level, which also features a special front fascia and LED auto level headlights, as well as LED rear lights.
The cabin is comfortable and roomy, with quality finishes. Leather seats are provided in the Premium trim and in the front these are heated for added comfort when it’s cold outside. When the weather warms up you will be glad for the dual-zone adaptive climate control, which is fitted on all trim levels. An auto-dimming rear-view mirror makes driving easier in the dark, and parking is straightforward thanks to the front and rear parking sensors. Opt for the range-topping Sport Tech for Around View Monitor technology, which incorporates a moving object detection system.
Engine choices in the Q50 range include a 2.2-litre diesel, which travels from 0-60mph in 8.9 seconds, returns up to 65.7mpg on a combined cycle, and has CO₂ emissions as low as 114g/km. The 2.2D is available with manual or automatic transmission. Other engines available include a 3.0-litre petrol edition and a 3.5-litre hybrid. The automatic version of the hybrid can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 5.1 seconds, with the manual edition not far behind at 5.4 seconds.
Safety features are abundant in the Infiniti Q50, with a speed limiter, cruise control, ABS and traction control just a few of the protections offered as standard. The Premium Tech model comes with Infiniti’s InTouch navigation system for simpler journeys.
You will find two USB slots, Bluetooth connectivity and dual-touchscreen fitted as standard in the Q50 range. The entry-level SE comes with CD player and six-speaker sound system.
Opt for the Premium Tech edition or above for the added benefit of a BOSE Performance Series audio system, incorporating 16 speakers. Active noise control technology means you can enjoy your music without disturbance.
