What's New For 2018

The newest 2018 Infiniti Q50 continues the lineup's persistence to quality updates year after year since the platform debuted in 2014. On the outside more modern LED headlamps and taillights illuminate an aggressive angular revision to both the front and rear styling. Stepping into the 3.0t Sport or Red Sport 400 models adds even more distinguished front grille and overtly wider intakes along the front fascia. Trim level names have been refreshed to Pure, Luxe, Sport, Red Sport 400 and Hybrid Luxe.

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


Abundantly equipped and available with a range of powertrains, including the powerful Red Sport version, the Infiniti Q50 sedan has been the most popular model from Nissan’s luxury division. Launched for 2014, it succeeded the G37. For the 2018 model year, modest exterior restyling and interior refinement are accompanied by a reshuffled trim-level lineup.

Front and rear fascia are new, tailored to each trim level.

The Q50 Pure has replaced the prior base model, available only with Infiniti’s 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Luxe replaces the Premium version, offered with either the 2.0-liter four, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, or in Hybrid form with a V6 gasoline engine. The Sport model gets stylish trim and a standard V6, while the Red Sport continues with a 400-horsepower rendition of the V6.

The 2.0-liter turbo four makes 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 comes two ways: rated 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet in regular models, escalating to 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet in Red Sport 400 tune. The Q50 Hybrid uses a combination of 3.5-liter V6 and 67-horsepower electric motor, with total system output of 360 horsepower.

Each engine mates with a 7-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional.

Pure and Luxe models get specific appearance details. The Sport and Red Sport 400 look somewhat more aggressive. New 18- and 19-inch wheels vary with the model.

Neither federal regulators nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have tested the 2018 Q50. The IIHS gave the 2017 model Good ratings for side and moderate front overlap collisions.

A suite of advanced active-safety systems is available. Included are adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. Some safety systems require purchase of Direct Adaptive Steering, which gets a mixed review.

Distance Control Assist, if installed, can maintain a safe distance to the car in front, when the driver lets up on the gas pedal. If that vehicle is slowing or stopped, DCA will maintain a safe gap or, if appropriate, bring the Q50 to a full stop.

In addition to option packages, the Q50 is available with plenty of advanced technology to supplement its ample list of standard equipment in each trim level.


The 2018 Infiniti Q50 2.0t Pure ($34,200) gets the 2.0-liter turbo four and rear-wheel drive, plus 17-inch alloy wheels, rearview camera, LED headlights, drive mode selector, leatherette-upholstered power front seats, 8.0- and 7.0-inch infotainment screens, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, and six-speaker audio. 2.0t Luxe ($36,550) adds a moonroof, maple wood trim, and 18-inch sport wheels. Two option packages are available. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

All-wheel drive is optional ($2,000) for all models. Front-wheel drive is standard.

3.0t Luxe ($38,950) upgrades with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6.

3.0t Sport ($40,650) includes more aggressive appearance details, 19-inch run-flat tires, and aluminum interior trim. Leather-upholstered seats include thigh extensions.

Red Sport 400 ($51,000) upgrades to a 400-horsepower version of the 3.0-liter V6. Included are navigation, paddle shifters, aluminum pedals, staggered 19-inch wheels, a surround-view camera, quilted leather, and a heated steering wheel.

Hybrid Luxe ($50,600) is equipped similar to 2.0t Luxe, but substitutes a battery/gasoline powertrain with 3.5-liter V6 engine.


Among the best-looking sedans in its category, the Q50 gets modest revisions for the 2018 model year. Most of its luscious curves remain, and the Q50 looks more stylish as well as assertive.

Visually, Pure and Luxe sedans look significantly different from a Sport version. Pure and Luxe feature chrome accents, with smaller aerodynamic elements. Foglamp surrounds are smaller, and the exhaust surround is body-colored.

Sport and Red Sport 400 editions substitute dark chrome for the usual brightwork. The front chin spoiler is bigger has grown. Exhaust surrounds are black.


New interior touches for 2018 increase Q50 refinement. Changes are mild but numerous, raising the levels of quality and luxury.

The new steering wheel features more attractive detailing, with slimmer spokes. Ambient lighting and instrument-cluster illumination have been updated. Leather covers the stitched dashboard.

One weakness may be the center stack, which still lacks visual appeal. A twin-screen infotainment system nearly fills the stack, flanked by two groups of piano-black buttons.

Front occupants can savor excellent, impressively comfortable “zero gravity” seats. Seat cushioning strikes an appealing balance between sink-in soft and usefully firm. Red Sport 400 models add attractive quilted, semi-aniline leather.

Headroom is a concern in the back seat, but legroom is fully acceptable. Trunk space is substantial, totaling 18 cubic feet.

A Q50 is quiet and composed, with only slight wind noise. Engine and tire sounds are seldom heard.

Driving Impressions

Basically, the Q50 maintains satisfying balance between ride comfort and handling prowess. The body behaves predictably through curves, but steering does feel somewhat disconnected from the pavement. Sport-minded drivers might feel that this sedan provides too much coddling.

Rough spots are effectively dealt with by the suspension, keeping Q50 occupants isolated from most road-surface flaws.

Optional Direct Adaptive Steering, a steer-by-wire system, can be problematical. Feedback via the steering wheel is virtually nonexistent. Sport+ mode does inject a modest sense of heft, but fails to inspire confidence. DAS feels jumpy, making repeated small corrections mandatory.

All three engines are stronger than their likeliest rivals. In the Red Sport 400, the potent V6 feels effortless throughout its speed range. Starting off from a stop, turbo lag is minimal. The 400-horsepower V6 also emits a vibrant exhaust sound.

Smooth and relaxed in daily driving, the 7-speed transmission keeps engine speed under close control. Response suffers when accelerating harder. Even in the Red Sport, upshifts are too leisurely.

Stressing performance above economy, the Q50 isn’t especially fuel-efficient. With rear-drive and the turbo four, the 2018 Q50 is EPA-rated at 23/30 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops the estimate slightly, to 22/28/24 mpg.

With rear-drive, the V6-powered Luxe and Sport are EPA-rated at 20/29 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. All-wheel-drive versions are EPA-rated at 19/27/22 mpg. The 400-horsepower Red Sport 400 with rear-drive is rated at 20/26/22 mpg. All-wheel drive reduces the city rating to 19 mpg.

With rear-drive, the Hybrid is EPA-rated at 27/32 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops that estimate to 26/30/28 mpg.


The refreshed Q50 is still a beautiful example of the premium sedan, with an impressively updated cabin. Yet, it doesn’t quite measure up to premium German competitors. Three engines are available, but only one promises fuel-efficient motoring. Enthusiasts might fault Q50 handling, but other premium-sedan buyers may be more attracted to its luscious shape.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
