Introduction and Exterior

The Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 represents a performance oriented car for the more seasoned, who loves a compact that delivers that bit (a lot) more in terms of outright performance, handling, and as always, that something special.

We believed it would have been a matter of time before Infiniti, Nissan’s luxo car brand came up with a car we feel that was aimed squarely at a fat-engined BMW 3 Series sedan.

The C segment executive sedan has long been seen by many, one which is crowded with compact luxury cars which represent the aspirations of what would be the young executive. Base models are usually lapped up by those who have just gotten themselves through the door.

Exterior
Well, it does almost look like any other Q50 at first glance. A second glance though, reveals a new front bumper, dual rear sport exhaust tips, like their German counterparts and a subtle rear boot lid spoiler.

The bonnet features lumpy-fluid bulges which flow over to the rear of the car. Streaming from the front to the rear are beefy shoulders, which gives the Q50 a sense of satisfying girth. True with Infiniti build quality, the shut lines on this car are constant and always close.

The Q50 feels larger than the BMW, and it is. The wheelbase for one is 2,850mm, 40mm longer than Bavaria’s iconic sedan. While the engine is a shorter-in-length V6, compared to the in-line six cylindered unit found in the 340i, and is sited quite the way back in the engine bay, there is a bit of frontal overhang in this car. But overall, the car does look proportionate.
