Nissan Skyline 200GT/Infiniti Q50 2.0



It has been around 4 years since Nissan and Mercedes announced a "Global partnership".
The 1st result of it is this all new 2.0 Liter Turbo version of the Infiniti Q50 (Nissan Skyline in Japan).

The new model is using a Mercedes 2.0 Liter engine with 214HP.
The next step will be the all new Q30 based on the Mercedes A Class.

Of course, a smaller engine will help in Europe and Japan.
But I think Nissan should bring this over here, quick.

I love the big 3.7 Liter V6 from Nissan. Everyone does.
But it gets terrible gas mileage. ( I could only get 23MPG HWY in the compact EX a couple of years ago!)
It is time for them to offer something else. And not just a hybrid version. Or a hybrid using the smaller 2.0 Liter.

Regardless of engine, this a really cool looking sedan as long as Infiniti wakes up and stops offering it with 17" wheels. They make it look like crap. Even Hyundai knows this by now.

a perfect example of over-styling failure.

I believe Infiniti will have QX30 model and wouldn't be surprise if a Q30 sedan isn't far behind. The problem I have with Infiniti is their all red taillight design just plain ugly.

Why does the Infinity/NISSAN 3.7 only get 23 MPG when the almost 300HP Chrysler 3.6 gets 31 MPG?

That's because you are clueless. The 300 gets 27 on the highway whereas the q50 gets 30 mpg.

I owned a G, thought the Q would be just as good, but, IT ISN"T! Very poor quality. I have had 3 recalls, over 50 computer "upgrades" (the computer actually would just keep shutting down). Steering and power delivery leave a lot to be desired. The backup directional lines can take over 2 minutes to turn on (infiniti say it was designed that way! LOL)

Infiniti now fills the tank up and details the car every time you have to bring the dog in for service.

Ok..ok..so you are a used car salesman. I get it. I own a G too, and I have driven the Q. None of the BS you mentioned is true.

Why? this is about the Q not the G(much better car, not junk like the Q) Go get educated before commenting clown.
