#18 of 27 Anyone buy/lease a Q50 yet?
Aug 12, 2013 (11:33 am)
My 2011 G37S lease is up Feb 2014 and I'm already scouting out my next car - for me the research is half the fun! I've seen the new Q50's at my local dealer but haven't driven one yet. I like the new styling and most of what I hear - what kind of deals are people getting? And how are you liking your car?
#19 of 27 2014 Infiniti Q50 Premium AWD with NAV lease
Aug 17, 2013 (6:58 am)
I am going to lease an Infiniti Q50 Premium AWD with Nav. 39 months/12K per year.
MSRP $43,855/invoice $40,416. Does anyone know the residual value and money factor for this car in NY?

Hi We are replacing our G37AWD with a Q50. We test drove the new Q50 Premium AWD and the Hybrid version of the same car. Both cars were nice to drive but we preferred the non hybrid version because it felt sportier. The hybrid's battery takes up room in the trunk and cost about $3000 more. It takes about 6 years to make the hybrid extra cost pay out. We will be getting the Premium AWD with Nav the end of this month (August or early Sept). Dealers generally are not very negotiable when a car first comes out but since we have gotten a few Infiniti's from this same dealer in NY they are giving us $1600 off MSRP.

Yeah I don't see me getting the hybrid either. As you mentioned, I don't see the cost pay-off and I like having trunk space for the occasional road trip, though the extra torque sounds promising....
Just curious as I have the G37 Sport version now - did you drive the Sport or are you just not interested? From what I've seen in the pro reviews it's supposed to have the better drive.
Re the price, I'm glad I have 4-6 months to make up my mind and plan to drive a few competing models. I suspect the demand may not be great and reasonable deals will start surfacing within a few months despite being a new model, though the salesmen will work that angle for all its worth...
Shop the dealers and good luck!

I think that the sport version will give you a tighter ride so it will probably handle better and might be a little faster. I think it also gets better brakes and sports seats which I are very comfortable. For us we felt that the regular awd version was fine for my wife's needs. It is a very pretty car.

I test drove the car yesterday in Western CT. It was a Sport model with all available options. (Nav,tech,premium,) Infiniti has done well with this car. I looked at the G series before getting my last car (11 E350 4matic) but it had too much road noise and looked like a bubble on wheels. This car is much sleeker in design while manginally (1-2 inches) longer then the G37. With the 19" wheels it is quite impressive. However, at the end of the day it all comes down to cost and there is no negotiating for a car that just came out and they would only give me 1K below MSRP, while I was able to get my last E 350 for about 2-3K under invoice (After conquest and USAA discounts). Unless they agree to come down a bit more, I cant see paying 700+ a month for this car, no matter how nice it looks. (putting money down on a lease is like taking insurance at a blackjack table) I can get into a new E350 or BMW 5 series for that much, and they will be bigger and more luxiourios then the Q.

Fatcat71 - I have to agree with your last sentence. I've seen the exterior in person but not sat inside, let alone driven, but I can't see spending that much money on a Q50. You're talking 535 or GS350 money whereas in my head it should be more like 335 or IS350 money. The money factors, residuals and selling prices are not favorable so until all of this changes, I'll be staying away.
For what it's worth, I have a 2012 G37 that I pay $325/mo leased, no money down (other than first payment). We're talking double that for a Q50. Infiniti just sent me a flyer saying I could lease a 2013 for $299/mo with $2k or so down, which translates into nothing down if I work the dealer some. So...is a Q50 2 times better than a G37? I'm just not seeing it.

Can anyone who owns one speak to how they feel about it?
