Infiniti Q50 Hybrid Review

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid ranks 18 out of 24 Upscale Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid, as well as reliability and safety data.

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid is ranked:

Reviewers say the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid has good power, fuel economy and tech features, but some say the quirky steering system is a deal breaker.

The all-new Infiniti Q50 Hybrid has a V6 engine and an electric motor that are mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Reviewers say there’s ample power and the Q50 Hybrid is fast off the line. They note that the transition between gas and electric power is seamless and most say the automatic transmission is smooth and refined. The base Q50 Hybrid gets an EPA-estimated 29/36 mpg city/highway, which is excellent for a V6-powered upscale midsize car.

Many test drivers are disappointed with the Q50 Hybrid’s Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) system, which allows drivers to fine-tune steering effort. They say the steering feels annoyingly artificial and doesn’t offer the driver much feedback from the road, so it makes the car not very engaging to drive.

Most test drivers are impressed with the Q50 Hybrid’s interior, saying that upscale materials, an elegant design and fine craftsmanship make it feel luxurious. The front seats are roomy and supportive, they say, and there’s ample room in the back seat. Standard features include a backup camera, automatic headlights, Bluetooth, two USB ports, a 14-speaker Bose audio system, satellite radio, an infotainment system with two touch-screen displays and a moonroof.

Available features include adaptive cruise control, navigation, a 360-degree camera system, blind spot warning, forward collision warning and lane departure warning. Reviewers say that simple menus make the infotainment system a breeze to use and redundant climate and audio controls make it easy to change settings without using the touch screen.

The hybrid model, with its balance of power and efficiency, is arguably the most desirable Q50 in many respects — it’s just a shame about the steering. — Left Lane News Infiniti nailed the tech. They just didn’t add enough testosterone. — Jalopnik We spent the majority of our time in a fully loaded all-wheel-drive Q50S Hybrid model, but we also snuck some time in a lower-spec rear-drive gas-only car. We much, much preferred the latter, but the trim you fancy will depend on what you value in a car: engagement or comfort, tech and economy. — Autoblog

Other Cars to Consider

The Lexus ES Hybrid isn’t as powerful as the Q50 Hybrid, but reviewers say it packs enough power for most drivers and it gets much better fuel economy ratings. The ES Hybrid also has a larger trunk than the Q50 Hybrid and test drivers say the cabin is elegant and spacious.

The BMW 328d is an all-new turbodiesel version of the 3-Series, and it gets superb fuel economy for the class. Like the Q50 Hybrid, reviewers say the 3-Series offers a winning combination of ride comfort and sporty handling. Although the 328d isn’t as powerful as the Q50 Hybrid, it carries a lower starting price.
