Infiniti has often struggled to cut the proverbial mustard in a Euro-centric market, but the Q50 goes a long way towards fixing that. A steer-by-wire system is a notable technological advancement – though in practice it isn’t that great. Power is derived from a range of possible engines; a 3.0-liter twin turbo V6 tops the range with either 300- or 400hp, with a 2.0-liter turbo unit filling in below with 208hp. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available through a 7-speed automatic – standard on all models. Available safety features include a pedestrian-protecting hood, six airbags, and tire pressure monitoring.
