Infiniti has unfortunately spent much of its existence toiling in the shadows of bigger names in the luxury business like BMW and Audi. That's something that the brand hopes will start to change through the introduction of vehicles like the 2014 Infiniti Q50S. This re-named refresh of the good, but often-overlooked Infiniti G sedan targets entry-level premium shoppers who want style, speed, and comfort without having to pay a Teutonic price penalty to get it.
If that sounds like the same play that was made by the now-departed G sedan, you are right - and these cars share more than a little DNA - but the Q50S is much more capable of delivering on its promise than past Infiniti models. A lot is riding on the 2014 Infiniti Q50S, but after spending a week with this 3 Series fighter, it seems to me that the Japanese upstart has put its money on a winner.
