What happens when you take a compact executive sedan, throw a 400 horsepower twin-turbo V6 in it, and paint it red? You get lots of enjoyment for your $53,000 purchase!
You asked, and we deliver! You wanted to see the 2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 AWD, so we booked it and filmed it! Boy, what a great car this is! Thank you for telling us to get our butt into it. As Nissan's premium-segment competitor, Infiniti has been the direct competitor to Acura and Buick for some time now, but this Q50S 400 has the Germans in its crosshairs.
With 400 horsepower, it's nearly as much power as a BMW M3, and has more power than any other luxury-oriented compact executive for the price, including the Cadillac ATS, Acura TLX, Lexus IS 350, BMW 340i, Mercedes-Benz C 400, Buick Regal GS, Genesis G70 3.3T, and Audi A6. But does a big fat turbocharged engine mean it's automatically a luxury vehicle?
Our full tour and review of this 2018 Infiniti Q50S Red Sport 400 AWD goes in-depth with the features, interior, exterior, and ride of this sedan. We cover everything we can during our week with this vehicle, and talk about what's important for buyers on a daily driving basis. We also talk about some of the competition and overall value for power this Infiniti offers.
