: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

For a midsize luxury sedan, the Q50 comes off as downright sporty. So it stands to reason that the hybrid version doesn't require you give up an ounce of performance. In fact, the Q50 Hybrid is noticeably faster than the conventional Q50 and delivers an extra 8 mpg in combined driving.

What's New For 2015

On the heels of last year's revamp, the Q50 Hybrid stands pat for 2015.


Choosing Your INFINITI Q50 Hybrid

Like the regular Q50, the Hybrid carries a 3.5-liter V6, but gets assistance from an an electric motor juiced by a lithium-ion battery pack. Combined output is 360 horsepower (32 more than the V6 alone), enough to propel the Q50 Hybrid from zero to 60 mph in a rather amazing 4.9 seconds according to INFINITI.

You can expect about 29 mpg around town and 36 on the highway. Many hybrid passenger cars do better, but none of those comes close the Q50's performance. A seven-speed automatic transmission does the shifting, and all-wheel drive is available in place of the standard rear-drive setup.

The Hybrid starts out more heavily equipped than the regular Q50, so there are just two main trim levels:



Comes with a leather interior with heated front seats and aluminum trim, keyless ignition, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, a sunroof and a 14-speaker Bose surround-sound system. The Hybrid also carries several features that cost extra on the gasoline Premium model, including a sport-tuned suspension, an adaptive steering system, a power adjustable steering wheel and a trunk pass-through. All-wheel drive versions also get a heated steering wheel.

The available Navigation package features 3D mapping, voice controls and real-time traffic data. Models so equipped are eligible for the Deluxe Technology package, which tacks on an enormous bundle of safety technology such as parking sensors, surround-view cameras, adaptive cruise control, and active collision alert and avoidance systems. The package also includes an "eco" gas pedal that provides feedback to alert you of gas-wasting driving habits, driver and passenger memory functions, and maple wood trim, although we're not sure what the latter has to do with technology.



The performance variant of the Q50 Hybrid adds upgraded brakes, leather sport seats, magnesium paddle shifters, sportier trim inside and out, and 19-inch wheels and summer performance tires (or all-season tires with all-wheel drive). The Navigation and Technology packages continue as options.

Both Premium and S can get an Appearance package with a decklid spoiler and satin black grille. Among the few individual options are ambient interior lighting, LED perimeter and under-vehicle lighting, and stainless steel door sills.

CarsDirect Tip

Fuel economy drops by only 1 mpg when you add all-wheel drive, so don't worry about spoiling the efficiency-fest. The navigation system is very reasonable at $1,400. The jumbo Deluxe Technology package adds another $5,000, which might be painful, but it's the only way to get active safety systems.
