The Q40 is an entry-level, luxury four-door sports sedan, and while the nameplate is a brand-new addition to the Infiniti lineup, the car underneath it is actually nine years old. That’s because the Q40 is a rebadged, fourth-generation G37 sedan, a move that standardizes the vehicle under Infiniti’s new naming structure.

Originally slated for replacement by the Q50, the Q40 has been retained due to popular demand. It’s one of Infiniti’s best sellers, and it slots nicely between the larger Q50 and compact Q30 hatchback/crossover.

So, what is it about this car that made Nissan’s premium division keep it around for one more year? Briefly summarized: it sacrifices small levels of refinement for a bargain price, heaps of features, and top-segment performance. It might be difficult to make something this dated look like a challenger to the throngs of newer cars competing in the mid-$30,000 luxury sedan segment, but somehow, Infiniti has pulled it off.

There are a few nitpickings along the way, but the Q40 has it where it counts: the engine is powerful, the chassis handles well, the requisite tech is present and accounted for, and the interior is pleasantly appointed. If you simply can’t wait to see what Infiniti has lined up for next year, the Q40 makes for a smart choice. It’s a tried-and-true platform with a history of satisfied customers.
