2018 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 3.0t – THE PACKAGE
This example tested here is featured in Majestic White. We think it looks quite cool, teamed with the black highlights that are exclusive to the Red Sport, such as the neat lip spoiler for the boot and the skirting garnishes fixed to the corners of the front bumper bar. You’ve also got the dark grey 19-inch wheels, with red multi-piston brakes lurking behind. You’d have to agree, it does look pretty dynamic.
Into the low-slung interior, you’re presented with red-stitched leather sports seats with diamond-stitch patterns for the hip bolsters. These are power-adjustable in a number of ways, and provide excellent comfort and support whether you’re cruising along the highway or carving up a mountain road. Headroom and legroom is respectable for the class, with a great natural driving position and perfectly placed pedals.
Rear seat space is a little tighter, but it does well for this class. Legroom is reasonable but our main gripe is how low the seat bench is. You have to bend right down to get in below the low sweeping roof. Once you’re in though the headroom is pretty good. There is a flip-down armrest from the middle seat with two cup holders, and climate venting in the back of the centre console. But you won’t find power outlets or temperature control back here.
