Q50 redsport
I've had the car for about 2 months. My previous car was a G37 IPL, so I will mostly compare this to that and the other two cars I cross shopped this with, the BMW 440iGC/340i and Lexus GS350 F Sport. It's definitely faster than the IPL, but it doesn't feel as sporty. I can't figure out why, but I've narrowed it down to either the tires being different or because the IPL had a LSD. It just doesn't feel that great in the corners. The acceleration is really good, though. I mainly drive on the highway and it's really useful for when you have to speed up to change lanes. From what I've read, the 400HP ranking is actually underrated. But still, I actually preferred the cars I was comparing this too. I really wanted a Lexus GS, but when it came down to price, there was really no decision at all. They have some insane deals going on. The sticker on mine was $57K. The Lexus and BMW I was looking at were $59K. My monthly lease payment is $250-350 lower with the Infiniti. My payment is actually $50 lower than what it was for my IPL and this has a lot more power and technology. The gas mileage is pretty good too. I get 24mpg in Sport mode and 25 in Normal. One time I was running low on gas, so I took it easy on the pedal and I got up to 30mpg. So in conclusion, the car looks great, handles okay, has a lot of power, interior is comfortable with a good amount of space, has all the new technology, and even gets pretty good gas mileage if you don't mash the peddle. And they usually have really good deals going on, so it's great value for the money.
Beware!!!
Bought a new 2018 Red sport. Two days after purchase the lower touch screen malfunctions. Took it back to the dealer and was told I NEED A new DCU (the lower screen). I was told it would take 5 days. On the 8th day I had to call to find out whats going on and was told the part is on back order for a month. As of today the month has come and gone and still no car and no idea when I would get it back. Inifiniti customer care has to be the worst in history. I have been lied to and my calls have gone unanswered. They tell me dates, then when the date passes I have to call and then im told another date with no explanation as to why the change. Ive searched the internet and found that the DCU is an on going issue for infiniti since 2014 so they know about it, but when I originally asked if this is something that happens alot, I was told no. This has been my worst purchase ever. The look , power and handling of the car is fantastic but the unreliability of the electronics and the terrible customer service makes this a bad buy. I gave up a reliable Lexus I had for 11 years for this car and it broke in 2 days. This is my first and last Infiniti. After I get it back i need to find a way to get out of it before anything else happens"
It was fun to drive for a few weeks
Quick little sedan, kinda fun. Heated seats broke after 9,000 miles. 6 weeks later and no part to be had. Infiniti must not support their dealers very well. LOTS of interior noise. Wont buy another.

Let's be honest: The 2017 Infiniti Q50 has an uphill battle on its hands. It has to draw attention away from a trio of German-made luxury sedans that dominate both critical acclaim and the sales charts. It's also up against a handful of other would-be competitors from every corner of the world, all vying for the hard-earned dollars of those seeking an alternative to what everyone else buys. So, how does it do?

Well, the Q50 remains a value-rich choice, boasting more power and equipment for the money than those German rivals. At the same time, its uniquely curvaceous styling won't be confused for anything else, meaning that just because you're cost-conscious doesn't mean you have to get something cookie-cutter or drab.

It also provides compelling performance. Indeed, the Q50 offers a unique selection of engines, each providing a clear performance step-up from the last. There's the base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, good for 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It returns 26 mpg combined (23 city/31 highway). Next up is the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that  produces 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. It gets 23 mpg combined (20 city/29 highway). An enhanced version of that V6 produces 400 hp and 350 lb-ft in the Red Sport model and returns  22 mpg combined (20 city/26 highway). All feature a seven-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an option. Choosing it does result in a slight fuel economy reduction.

Another powerplant option is the Q50 Hybrid, which pairs a 3.5-liter V6 with a 50-kW electric engine for 360 hp. The hybrid choice returns 29 mpg combined (27 city/32 highway), which obviously is a fuel-economy improvement. Its powertrain is prone to unsettling and unpredictable lurches, and the brakes suffer from a lack of smoothness and stability. It also comes standard with Infiniti's drive-by-wire Direct Active Steering system, which provides a disconcertingly unnatural feel.

Regardless of engine choice, the Q50 comes with a compelling amount of equipment for the money: LED headlights, keyless ignition and entry, a rearview camera, two USB ports and Infiniti's dual-touchscreen interface come standard on all models. The Sport trims available with each engine step things up with upgraded brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, metal shift paddles, leather upholstery and sportier seats with adjustable bolsters. The typical assortment of comfort, convenience and safety tech features are available as options.

Certainly, that features-for-your-buck attribute is a main reason to consider the Q50. Ultimately, however, it underwhelms in comparison to many competitors. It's hard to pinpoint problem areas, but it's also hard to identify those areas in which it excels. It's very much middle-of-the-road: You'll probably be happy with it, but there's a good chance you'd be happier with one of the many other luxury sedans. Whether it's the Q50 or another choice, Edmunds is here to help you find that perfect car.
