    No complaints or issues in the 18 months of ownership. I actually got a little sideways yesterday in the rain. And we're only talking powertrains. This car is amazing in snow which is a giant plus in Colorado.

    Infiniti replaced its much loved and much lauded G37 with the all-new Q50 in late as a model, and we covered a number of trim levels. The first one I drove and reviewed was a Q50 Hybrid, while my colleague followed that one up with a Q50 AWD Premium and I followed him up with a different slant on the same car. It took us until February of this year to get my Q50 3. In case you're curious, Infiniti's Canadian division offers the conventionally powered Q50 in five trim levels for , last year's Premium designation now off the menu and my latest tester's Limited trim on.

    The rundown is as follows: I'm going to guess that you already know Q50 sales numbers don't come anywhere near its German competitors although the numbers are a touch misleading as BMW sells three separate 3 Series models, Mercedes two C-Class body styles and Audi two A4 iterations, whereas there's only one single Q50 four-door sedan , but amongst Japanese, Swedish and US rivals it fares pretty well.

    Acura's all-new TLX wasn't on the market for a full year so last year's 2, sales aren't likely fair to compare, and like those Germans, Lexus' 3, IS sales had a little help from the IS C hardtop convertible model.

    In this respect I like where Infiniti's Q50 sits within its market. Its 3k-plus Canadian sales mean that it's popular enough to achieve a collective nod of approval from premium buyers, yet it's not so ubiquitous to lose its exclusive appeal.

    That's possible, by the way, unless you're determined to pay through the nose for a three-pointed star. As you may have guessed by all those 3. The German four-cylinder models will counter with better fuel economy numbers than the Q50's five-cycle EnerGuide rating of And we're only talking powertrains. Do the same with the Germans and they'll come up a bit short. Once again, ask any BMW, M-B or Audi buyer if they'd give up such items for six-cylinder performance at a base four-cylinder price and they'd nod their heads rapidly while emphatically asking where they needed to sign.

    Of course, Infiniti shoots back with some innovative technology of its own, and not just copycat systems developed and engineered by Japanese hybrid producers. The Q50, as tested, is the only car in the world to offer Direct Adaptive Steering, a steer-by-wire system with no direct mechanical connection between steering wheel and tires.

    It has the ability to react much quicker to steering wheel input than a conventional hydraulic- or electric-powered rack and pinion steering setup, specifically responding to what you're doing rather than the other way around. In a nutshell, an ECU reads the amount of turn-in you're adding to the steering wheel after which it calculates and provides the appropriate info to the steering motors. Steering feedback, which is no longer physically connected, is instead defined by an electronic control unit, as well as a camera and processing module, all determining the amount of resistance to add back to the steering wheel through a steering force actuator unit.

    The advantage is the system's ability to electronically modify the steering ratio and feedback without mechanical revisions, some of that ability right at your fingertips.

    I should mention here that DAS in the model I drove earlier this year and in this Limited trimmed Q50 felt better than it did last year, much to do with a number of modifications made to steering and suspension tuning in all Q50 models, increasing the feel and responsiveness of the hydraulic steering system in base models and adding more feedback from the upgraded DAS setup, so that now it feels much better at high speeds and more natural through fast-paced corners.
