2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid Review
If youíre interested in a luxury sport sedan and are totally obsessed with technology, the Infiniti Q50S Hybrid is a must-see.
Crammed with the very latest in technology and a potent powertrain, the Q50S Hybrid is something to get excited about.
The car canít drive itself, but it feels darn close sometimes. Witchcraft, you say? Hardly.
It all starts at the steering wheel: the main form of communication between car and driver. Called ďDirect Adaptive Steering, the Q50S doesnít feature a mechanical connection between the front-wheels and the steering wheel in the driverís hands. By using digital signals the car can be extremely versatile in terms of steering feel and engagement.
Even driving straight down the street, the Q50 feels different; the wheel feels a little bit disconnected, like Iím playing a video game. The road feel is almost gone. Potholes, manhole covers and rail-road tracks donít send a judder into my palms like a normal steering system would. All that unnecessary white noise on the road that plays into the hands of the driver is gone; resulting is an extremely calm drive. Surprisingly, the car still steers with consistency and predictability but thereís something missing.
