Infiniti Q50 Overview

While the Q50 is quick and relatively roomy, its underwhelming driving experience limits its sporty credentials. On the luxury front, fit and finish took a step back as well as ride comfort and noise isolation. Handling is lackluster mostly due to the dull steering. Ride comfort is unsettled and suffers from the run-flat tires. The punchy powertrain isn't a model of refinement and fuel economy is not impressive. For the class the cabin is quite roomy and the rear seat is fairly hospitable, but the front seat has a short cushion and interior quality is so-so. Even more frustrating is the agonizingly slow-responding touchscreen control interface.
