No, it's far from terrible, I just think there's room for improvement.What exactly did they do to upgrade the Audio system? I never found the audio system to be terrible in my G37.
Wow, if you're used to driving an S class, I find it interesting that you'd want to jump down so far to a Q50.Literally nothing that Infiniti has made previously has been appealing to me. I like the styling of the G coupes and the M sedans, but their interiors were deal breakers. The G37 to me seems bulbous and lumpy.
However the Q50 gives me an immediate, visceral reaction. The proportions, lines and stance are near perfect. The styling is a little forward thinking and the contours possibly too overwrought, especially in the flanks and rear quarters, but overall the exterior package is striking.
My current car is a prior gen MB S Class. I'd love to replace it but it's a really nice car. Very comfortable, gorgeous interior, great seats, excellent Bose audio, nice ride, lots of gizmos.
The Q50 seats look very good in photos. The Bose audio is a big plus. I love the dual screen center stack and all the tech. Love that it's RWD, and 360HP in a car that size is very impressive.
The devil is in the details, of course. I may, as is often the case, get totally turned off on the test drive, but currently the Q50 is by far the front runner for my next car. Hurry up, summer.
The previous gen S-class (I am talking about this one) was a victim of cost cutting and was criticized for having a cheap interior. THe current-gen fixed that issue, and I am sure the upcoming 2014 will be a further step up.Wow, if you're used to driving an S class, I find it interesting that you'd want to jump down so far to a Q50.
