The Infiniti Q50 is an entry-level luxury sport sedan. The Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 300 is a luxury sedan with a twin-turbo punch. Under the hood is a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 pumping out 400HP & mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission. No turbo lag – 2 small twin turbos smooths out power delivery. Exhaust sound is nice.
On the outside, the Q50 has some beautiful lines and colors. The Q50 offers many of the latest high-tech features and driving assistants as well as a better-than-average performance at a reasonable price. Some of the technology is dated. For 2020, in particular, Infiniti has dropped the previous entry-level four-cylinder engine and replaced it with a 300-horsepower V6. There’s also a new infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
The lack of smartphone integration was a pretty serious drawback last year, so it’s fair to say the Q50 is a better pick than it’s been in the past. We also like the sporty performance provided by the V6, which you can ramp up to 400 hp in the Red Sport 400 trim level. Overall, the Q50 could be worth a look, especially if the price is right. But know that rival sedans such as the BMW 3 Series, Genesis G70 and Volvo S60 are newer and more desirable overall.
