2014 Infiniti Q50 Quick Facts

Powerful V6 engine

Comfortable and supportive front seats

Numerous standard features

Comfortable ride

Mediocre handling for a sport sedan

Quirky optional adaptive steering system

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 ranks 5 out of 23 Upscale Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on U.S. News analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Infiniti Q50, as well as reliability and safety data.

While it may not be the most athletic sport sedan, test drivers say the all-new Infiniti Q50 excels with a powerful engine and a refined, high-tech interior.

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 comes with a V6 engine, which reviewers say provides ample power and swift acceleration. A seven-speed automatic transmission is standard, and most test drivers say that it offers quick shifts that are smooth and refined. However, a few say that the Q50 would feel sportier if the transmission shifted even more quickly. The 2014 Q50 gets an EPA-estimated 20/29 mpg city/highway, which is about average for a V6-powered upscale midsize car. Still, four-cylinder cars like the BMW 320i and the base Audi A4 use considerably less fuel.

Reviewers say that the all-new Q50 offers a comfortable ride and capable handling, though some note that it’s not quite as athletic as the BMW 3-Series or Cadillac ATS. An adaptive steering system is optional, and while it allows drivers to fine tune steering effort and the Q50’s turning radius, the bulk of test drivers say that the system feels artificial and disconnected from the road. As a result, some reviewers recommend sticking with the more conventional base steering system.

Reviewers note that the Infiniti Q50’s cabin is well-built with soft-touch surfaces and premium materials that include aluminum or wood trim. Most also approve of the Q50’s interior styling, but a handful of reviewers say that it looks a bit plain compared with the cabins of newer rivals in the class. Most auto writers say that the Q50’s front seats are spacious, supportive and comfortable, and that the Q50’s second row is roomy enough for … passengers to be comfortable. Still, a few note that tall back-seat passengers may need a bit more headroom. The 2014 Q50 comes with a competitive set of standard features for the class, and most auto writers say that its new dual-screen infotainment system is high-tech and easy to use.

A backup camera, heated front seats, Bluetooth, two USB ports, satellite and HD Radio and Infiniti’s InTouch infotainment system come standard on the 2014 Infiniti Q50. Available features include a moonroof, adaptive cruise control and a 14-speaker Bose sound system, as well as blind spot warning, forward collision warning and lane departure warning systems.

The Acura TL comes standard with a powerful V6 engine that reviewers love, and like the Q50, it offers more standard features than many cars in the class. The TL also impresses test drivers with its upscale interior.

Test drivers say that the Cadillac ATS is one of the best-handling sedans in the class, and that it offers strong brakes and a comfortable ride. The ATS is also available with three powertrain choices, which include a turbo four and a V6 that reviewers say are powerful and refined.

Compare the Q50, TL and ATS

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 seats five and has standard rear-wheel drive. A 3.7-liter V6 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission are standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. The Q50 is available in base, Premium and Sport trims.

The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid is reviewed separately. The Infiniti Q50 is an all-new model for 2014.
