The Infiniti Q50 really has been designed with Europe in mind. There are two models - a 2.2d which is powered by a 168bhp 2.1-litre engine from Mercedes, and a hybrid which uses a 3.5-litre V6 and an electric motor to produce a total of 359bhp.
The interior is loaded up with kit, too, with dual touchscreens as standard on all models, as well as a rear view camera, parking sensors and a start button. And if you move up one trim level from the basic SE, you'll get full leather upholstery.
In terms of performance, the Q50 - complete with auto box - did 0-62mph in 8.5 seconds, so it's reasonable. Plus, handling is great and has significantly improved over the old G37.
Direct Adaptive steering is available as an £800 option on mid-spec Premium models and standard on everything above that - you can't get it on entry-level SE Q50s, though. Nonetheless, it's the world's first fly-by-wire steering, meaning, there is no connection between the wheels and the steering wheel.
This has allowed for clever things like an active lane departure system and a customisable steering set-up. There is a downside, though - steering feels artificial and offers very limited feedback.
