2014 Infiniti Q50 fails to achieve Consumer Reports’ “Recommended” rating

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 22, 2013

Earlier today we told you that the 2014 Lexus IS250 failed to receive the “Recommended” status from Consumer Reports magazine, but it appears that another Japanese vehicle failed as well: the 2014 Infiniti Q50. Although the Infiniti G models were one of the highest-rated sedans, the redesigned model wearing the Q designation seems to have lost its way, according to Consumer Reports.

Just like the 2014 Lexus IS250, the 2014 Infiniti Q50 comes with dull steering and the handling is not as good as the one provided by the G37 for example.

Furthermore, the new Q50 also fails to provide the same ride comfort as the G. Consumer Reports says that the Q50 can’t take on the higher-rated models from its class.

But, there is some good news: the Infiniti Q50 is much better than the 2014 Lexus IS250. And we have some more good news: the Infiniti G37 is still on sale in the near future, it is much cheaper than the Q50 but it is available in limited numbers.

Infiniti Q50 is available with a standard 3.7-liter V6 engine rated at 320 hp and has a starting price of $36,450.
