The Infiniti Q50 is the replacement for the G37, a sporty sedan, but one which fell just short of being an actual sport sedan. Well, it seems that the new Q50 falls even shorter, and Consumer Reports has definitely noticed it. This is likely to be a problem, as its competitors include some of the benchmarks in sport sedans, such as the BMW 3-Series. But the worst part is that this car is badged as a Nissan Skyline in Japan, a nameplate with strong performance history.
It seems to be a nice enough car if you don’t care about sportiness, but if it’s something you can have in another car for the same price, people are likely to do just that.
