model highlights

The Infiniti Q50 ticks all the right boxes for those looking for a classy, intelligent, athletic sports sedan.

The car boasts a sleek exterior of flowing lines based upon the Essence concept car Infiniti debuted four years ago. After a 2020 update, it features potent engines to match the sleek shape. The Q50 is available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, the base engine is a 3.0L V6, which benefits from twin-turbocharging. In standard tune, it makes 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, while the high-output version delivers 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet. Power is transferred to the wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission.

The Q50 comes in five flavors -- Pure, Luxe, Sport, Red Sport 400 and Edition 30. The base trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels with run-flat tires, speed-sensitive power steering, auto on/off LED headlights with LED fog lights, zero-lift front and rear aerodynamics and remote-open windows. Inside can be found creature comforts such as dual-zone automatic climate control, one-touch up/down windows all around, aluminum appointments, 8-way power driver and passenger seats, a 6-speaker audio system with twin USB ports and steering wheel-mounted controls, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and dual Infiniti InTouch LCD displays.

Q50 Luxe models add pleasantries such as a power tinted moonroof with one-touch open/close functionality and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink.

Additionally, Q50 Sport models include 19-inch alloy wheels with ventilated aluminum sport disc brakes and a sport-tuned suspension, heated front seats, leather front seats with improved bolstering and 12-way power adjustability on the driver's side, magnesium paddle shifters and a 16-speaker audio system.

The Q50 will be the first Infiniti vehicle to package all the automaker's driver support technologies under the ProPILOT label. The model will offer Active Lane Control, which prevents drivers from veering out of their lane, as well as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and prevention, forward emergency braking, predictive forward collision warning, backup collision intervention and a second-generation steer-by-wire system.

model news

The 2020 Q50 gets a couple of new important updates this year, along with a slightly simplified lineup. The 3.0L POWERED 3.0t becomes the entry level trim and engine choice. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now also standard features along with a dual-screen infotainment and HVAC system.

value writeup

The 2020 Infiniti Q50 is a stylish, sophisticated, high-performance sports sedan, with European competitors squarely in its sights. Even in the base trim, the Q50 offers a host of luxury and technology features that are hard to beat. Including the twin-turbo V6, with up to 400 horsepower, easily trumps output from the top-tier models from BMW and Audi.

Overall Rollover Rating: * * * * *
Dynamic Test Result: No Tip
Risk of Rollover: 9.70%

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
