2015 Infiniti Q50 – One of the Best Sedans in the Market
There is a mixed opinion when it comes to reviewing the 2015 Infiniti Q50. The vehicle is popular because it is one of the most impressive sedans in the midsize category, thanks to its 3.7-l V6 engine. It will certainly have you impressed on the road. However, the reason why we say that the vehicle has mixed reviews is because its hybrid version isn’t the best in the market. In fact, it is pretty average.
When it comes to the interior, both hybrid and non-hybrid versions are pretty impressive. In fact, the high tech options and the classic feel of the cabin take it three to four steps ahead of its competitors. However, what draws the line between two models is the kind of performance they deliver on the road. Without a doubt, The Q50 hybrid does not drive well than the conventional version. There is an issue with the acceleration, which is not even by any means, as well as the braking, which is certainly inconsistent. Also, the addition Direct Adaptive steering doesn’t let the driver get a proper feedback from the front wheels as they have no physical connection with the steering wheel. As a result of that, drivers do not get to enjoy the kind of drive quality they expect. Besides that, there is very little space in the trunk.
Keeping all those factors in mind, it is highly recommended not to go for the hybrid version. However, The conventional Infiniti is certainly the vehicle you should go for. Also, it is important to stick to the conventional steering as opposed to the Direct Adaptive Steering, which is also available with the Q50.
The standard features that the Q50 comes with include, Led headlights (automatic), Alloy wheels (17-inch), keyless ignition, heated mirrors, LED fog lights, Cruise control, keyless entry and plenty others.
As far as the vehicle’s power and performance is concerned, it comes with a 3.7-l V6, which is capable of producing up to 328 hp and the torque of 269 lb-ft. The only transmission available with the 2015 Infiniti Q50 is a seven-speed automatic. Also standard on the vehicle is rear-wheel-drive, however, the option of all-wheel-drive is available for the drivers. On the speed test, the Q50 with standard rear-wheel-drive hit the 60 mph mark from a standstill in less than 6 seconds.
The fuel economy estimates of the vehicle according to EPA were 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with a rear-wheel-drive. On an all-wheel-drive, however, the vehicle returned 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
The safety features in the 2015 Infiniti Q50 are all state of the art. Some of the standard safety features include traction control, stability control, anti-lock brakes, front side airbags, rear-view camera and many others.
In a nutshell, the all-new Q50 is certainly a good investment. We wouldn’t necessarily recommend the Hybrid version, but the conventional Q50 is undoubtedly one of the best sedans in the market right now.
