Though the badge doesn't quite suggest it, the Q50 is a familiar luxury sedan, the successor to Infiniti's G37 sedan. New for 2014, the Q50 is the first major redo of what was once known as the G, the first real Japanese-bred rival to the BMW 3-Series. Infiniti's freshest sport sedan lays out a more ambitious agenda than ever before.
The Q50 is aimed primarily at the latest 3-Series, as well as the Cadillac ATS and Lexus IS. In terms of overall dimensions, it's actually a half-size larger than those, and a half-size down from cars like the BMW 5-Series and Jaguar XF.
The 2015 Infiniti Q50 represents a styling leap as compared to the G37 model it replaced. Though larger than some of its main competitors, the Q50's proportions manage to make it look more compact from a few paces back. Its interior surprises with more space and finer details up close.
Although the 3.7-liter engine hasn't changed significantly since its last incarnation, it's no longer nearly as ragged and coarse as it was in the G37. Engineers put a lot of effort into smoothing and isolating the motor, with new intake and exhaust manifolds, as well as other measures that aid drivability in the middle of the rev range.
The seven-speed automatic transmission has been refined a bit, too, but the big change is that it's been given a taller final-drive ratio. The transmission provides nice throttle-blipped downshifts and remarkably little driveline shock. Overall, the 3.7-liter sings up its range with much more harmony than it ever did in the G.
The Q50's seats benefit from some of the thought that went into those in the latest Nissan Altima. It's a so-called zero-gravity approach patterned after some real space-age knowledge from NASA--in essence, pressure is distributed more evenly for long-distance comfort. All the Sport models come with extendable thigh bolsters for the driver—a feature that helps tremendously in providing long-range comfort for taller drivers.
