Well, it's the same kind of thing that I've had a problem with for quite some time.It's funny when I read the comments after the article. People just threw in the towels for either one or the other, all based on one mans account in an article. Tragic.
Yeah, that's definitely the case.From Mortara concerning the Infinti: "A great engine with plenty of power, but I found the throttle a little lazy during spirited driving."
This is one of the quote from the article. I wonder if they drive it in Standard mode. As we know, the Q50S Standard vs Sport mode is like night and day different.
The Q50S in standard mode is more on gas saving than performance. If you drive the Q50S in Sport mode plus manual shift, it's very quick and fast.
They didn't mention anything about the drive mode setting. The standard mode in the IS350 F Sport is probably more aggressive setting than the Q50, that's why the Q50 got better EPA rating. Thought?
Yeah, that's definitely the case.
The IS350's transmission is extremely thirsty, which makes for a much more spirited drive experience but of course, it will cost you at the pump. I believe the IS350 F-Sport has the poorest fuel economy in its class.
I think it's obvious that they're gauging the performance of both cars with and without manual shifting, which I think is still fair because to the average consumer, they're probably not going to be using the paddles at that much or perhaps even know how to use them. A lot of these auto journalists will give credit to the manual shifting where it's due, but they should be informative and inform buyers of the car's normal transmission and shift points.
