I'm torn apart on making this devotion, I want to either get the sport gas or premium hybrid. I really want the hybrid but the look of the sport is just too sexy and I should get it.
Now most of you would say get the hybrid sport and I agree not my budget doesn't allow me at this time.

What would you guys get if you were in my position.

PS: besides the look of the sport, I'm not interested in anything else of it. Like the breaks and seats etc

I had the same quandary. You could buy one of each, or do what I did. Yes, bite the financial bullet and get a sport hybrid. You could try to find a RWD with fewer options.

It's purely your choice. Personally, I'm going with the gasser Sport. I like to have a little bit more space in the trunk, and the price differential for hybrid / gas savings vs gasser not worth it. The increased power with hybrid is nice, but it's not like the regular engine is a slouch.

It depends what other options you want...if you are going to fully load on the packages, the upgrade to hybrid is just a hair over $1,000 so totally worth it.

This is where I'm at too.

I test drove a Hybrid with ONLY the Navigation package and I'm pretty sure it has everything I need on it.

Sure, if you get the gasser for the same price, you can add packages to it to get the wood interior trim, Around view monitor, rain-sensing wipers, and memory seats. Now, both vehicles end up around $48k..

You gotta ask yourself, what's worth more to you--the trunk space, wood trim, camera, rain-sensing wipers, less weight, and memory settings of the gasser OR the extra power and better fuel economy of the hybrid?

True. However you lose the spare tire option with the hybrid (I think), which may be an issue if wanting to get rid of the run flats.


Can you get heated steering wheel with the 50Qs AWD? The specs on the Infiniti website seem to suggest it's an option only for the 50Q premium AWD's and the hybrids AWD's, but not the 50Qs sports AWD.

I have a Q50S AWD Gasser and it came with the heated steering wheel.

Which part of the appearance of sport turns you on? Wheels? You can add those, and I'm sure you could find someone on here who would buy your stock wheels to subsidize the difference. If it is the frowny front grill, that's harder to change. Although if you have a low insurance deductible, a good bump to the front end will mean you need a new front grill. I doubt the body shop would charge you more to put the sport front on as a replacement.

If you're leasing, keep in mind that lease numbers are a bit better on the premium than they are on the sport.

I like the front facia on the sport.
the residual on the sport is much lower than the hybrid therefore it makes the monthly payments a little higher than i expected. the hybrid on the other hand, has only 2% difference than than the premium nav so that might be an option.

Is spending more $40 a month really worth the saving of gas? even tho i'm not buying this car to save gas but to have the power.

I'm currently being quoted at
$400 premium nav
$440 hybrid nav
$450 for sport nav

all are tax included with 12k miles a year.

do you guys think that those are good numbers or can I do better?

I'm no leasing expert (although I should be), but on the surface, the monthly numbers look ok, but you might need to provide a little bit more detail on the selling price, money factor, etc.

In the aim of staying on topic, post your information in here as well and hopefully someone will be able to better help you out:
