Car video reviews:

Segment: Medium

Updated for 2016, the compact executive saloon was luxury and technology oriented.

Some of the major updates were with next-generation direct adaptive steering system and the dynamic digital suspension available with the V6 engine. The direct adaptive steering offered a quicker response and removed vibrations.

While the Q50 was not an obvious choice, the mainstream engineering used turned the luxurious saloon into a great choice for the people interested in the Nissan’s luxury brand.

The cabin was one of the roomiest in the class, with impressive legroom and headroom for the rear passengers. Even if the luxurious sedan offered seating for 5, the 3rd seat in the rear was more suitable for children due to the high central transmission tunnel.

Comfort was one of the Q50’s strongest points, with incredibly comfortable chairs equipped with side bolsters for better support in the Sport version.

The brand’s tie-up with Mercedes Benz brought a power 2.0-liter engine that developed 208 hp and 258 lb.-ft of torque.

New for 2016, a 3.0-liter V6 engine was added to the range, an unit that cranked out 300 hp with the 3.0t trim level and 400 hp with the range-topping Q50 Red Sport 400.

The interior was fitted with nicely finished high quality materials. The center console consisted mainly of two screens, each to display different information. The upper screen displayed the navigation and the images transmitted from the rear view camera, while the 2nd screen would offer easy access to the infotainment system.
