The Q50, which INFINITI introduced in 2014, is a large sedan with seating up to 5. The Q50 has offered Android Auto and Apple CarPlay since 2020. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. The INFINITI Q50 has some real zest, surpassing typical horsepower for its class. INFINITI offers a 4-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.


The 2016 INFINITI Q50 is below average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2016 INFINITI Q50 has a score of 75, implying a 0.049% chance of driver death (4.4% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.043%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.8%.

We estimate that the 2016 INFINITI Q50 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0492% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.6218%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0492% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.6218% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2016 INFINITI Q50 is 3% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2016 INFINITI Q50 is 4% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2016 INFINITI Q50 offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 13%.
