Infiniti Q50

Imagine you are Nissan and own a brand that’s quite big in but microscopic in Europe: what do you do? Do you try and BMW at its own game and risk almost being portrayed as a me-too or do you do something completely different and irrelevance instead?

With and its new Q50, Nissan has chosen the path. In price and positioning a clear rival for a BMW 3-series, but in its it is a world apart. For while the BMW is on the outside and minimalist inside, the Q50 is without and complex almost to the of clutter within.

While BMW leads with old-school mechanical engineering, wants you to focus on its car’s technological capabilities.

None of is more befuddling than the that the car is available with that has no mechanical connection the wheel you hold and those turn the car. Actually not quite true because if first steer-by-wire system to it into production fails, a system automatically kicks in; but the of the time the only reason the wheels turn when you the steering wheel is because a told them to.

In the advantages are many: kickback and are eliminated, the steering can have any it likes and you can programme different and response profiles too. it cannot do is provide any real of connection to the road, save which it can digitally and none too synthesise. I drove cars and without it and massively preferred the old standard system.

The rest of the car is good, but not good You’ll think it handles right until the moment you a 3-series, and while the borrowed diesel engine has a reasonable it is beaten on every count acceleration to economy by the BMW.

I Infiniti for having a go and if for some you’re averse to owning a (or an Audi A4 or Mercedes C-class) and instead to drive something attractive and different, there is to be said for the Q50. But for everyone I’m afraid the Germans just do it I think the Q50 will sell in numbers than other thanks to its competitive diesel but Infiniti’s dream of rivalling the in Europe seems set to remain that for a while yet.
