2014 - Present Infiniti Q50 Trim Configurations
The first generation of Infiniti Q50 was announced in 2013 and began sales in 2014. This model designed to replace the Infiniti G37 sedan, offering similar body styling with updated features. Throughout its years of production, there have been some notable changes from one model year to the next. In 2015, however, the vehicle was completely unchanged (probably because it was still coming off a completely new design/release in 2014). For the Infiniti Q50 2016, however, there were some notable changes that included three new engine options (all turbocharged), as well as updated steering and suspension. For this model year, Infiniti also improved their Direct Adaptive Steering.
For the Infiniti Q50 2017, all-wheel drive becomes an option on its Sport trim levels, and some minor features are shuffled around between trims. With the Infiniti Q50 2018, small changes to the exterior styling are made and new sub-trims (Luxe, Pure, and Sport) become available.

Reviews for Infiniti Q50
Good car, but service...
Probably a good car when everything works. Very buggy. Almost to many bells and whistles (reminds me of an old Caddy). it is an incredible value. You get a lot of HP for the money. It is a good fit for what I do. Kids, go fast, good looks, I can modify, and about average on gas. A lot to like, but it being so buggy, and CarMax service (It's really bad) makes me give it low marks.
- Value: A lot of engine for the money
- Technology and Entertainment: When they work, a lot of forward thinking new technology
- Styling: Turns heads without a doubt
- Reliability: A lot is wrong with this car already. CarMax is picky with what they want to fix.
- Cost to Maintain: If I didn't have a warranty...No dice for me. It would cost a fortune to fix even minor problems.
- Fuel Economy: coming from a turbo charged 4 cyl, it is a challenge for me to get used to a stroked out 6. This car moves with authority. I will adjust, but, "It costs gas to go fast"
Great car, minus the bumper issue.
This car is awesome. Very fast and powerful, and hugs the road. However, when I bought it from CarMax there was a small quarter inch gap where the bumper meets the panel. I asked the CarMax rep about it and if they can fix it, and they kind of made it seem like it wasn’t an issue. Now that gap is a half inch and doesn’t align properly. Pretty annoyed about it. Makes me think there was undisclosed damage to the bumper.
- Ride and Handling:
I love her but...
car is beautiful inside and out however finding out after buying from a large resale company you would think the fluids would have been changed when selling to new owner. just passed the 30 days brakes hitting metal to metal the engine oil was burnt black now the transmission is beginning to slip or searching longer to change gears it's a beautiful car just wish the dealership would actually take care of the customer who paid in full so they have income
- Power: not used to it
- Styling: sleek
- Interior Space: roomy
- Cost to Maintain: little over 30 days both front n rear brakes needed to be replace pads n disk
- Technology and Entertainment: I assumed came with navigation being considered a luxury car
- Fuel Economy: with gas prices It's a pain
