How much does the Infiniti Q50 cost to run?

The 2.1L diesel is the most economical Infiniti Q50 to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Infiniti Q50 2.1L diesel costs £30.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band C.

It does just over 65 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Volvo V60 2.4L diesel and the more thirsty Mercedes Benz C Class 2.1L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 40, which is lower than the Mercedes Benz C Class 2.1L diesel, but higher than the Audi A4 Allroad 3.0L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Audi A4 has the lowest insurance group.)

Infiniti Q50: How big is the boot?

The Infiniti Q50 has an above average boot space (500 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and 3 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 4 large bags or 4 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Volvo V60 estate is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 564 litres.

Is the Infiniti Q50 easy to park?

While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the BMW 1 Series), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill three quarters of the space.

When it comes to parking on the street, the Q50 is one of the hardest. It has a turning circle of 11m, and a length of 4793m, giving you a relatively small 7mm gap to turn the car in and out.

If you don’t have a drive, you should look at the best in class for parallel parking instead, the BMW 1 Series.

Which Infiniti Q50 has the best performance?

The fastest Infiniti Q50 from 0-60, is the 2.1L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 400 lbs/ft torque and 170 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 8.5 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Audi A4 1.8L petrol, which will beat your Infiniti Q50 to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Infiniti Q50 tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Infiniti Q50 2.1L diesel which has 400 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 1500kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
