The Car Guide rating 59%(view ratings)
As a Japanese luxury sedan in a segment dominated by the Germans, the compact Infiniti Q50 uses a different approach than most competitors. One example is the drive-by-wire steering system. Also, while many are adopting four-cylinder engines exclusively, the Q50 relies on a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 available in two levels of output. The first one is rated at 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, while the second delivers 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
