Here's a mechanical comparison of the old G37 vs the current Q50 sedan:


The Infiniti Q50 has a 3.0L twin turbo V6.
Here's an under-hood shot of the Q50. Notice all the cooling hoses sprawling all over the engine bay, and 3 radiator caps! The Turbo intercoolers have their own dedicated electric water pump and circuit.


As a comparison, the G37 has a naturally aspirated 3.7L V6, and the engine bay looks a bit more calm:


To be honest, with a the exception of the engine and a slight change to the rear suspension, both the Q50 and G37 are exactly the same underneath, including the transmission, AWD setup and exhaust.





Which do you all prefer?

I got to rent a Q50 3.0t two years ago. Definitely quick, but I also rented the 2.0t just before it (Had to swap it for some issue) and that felt snappier for some reason. I preferred driving the 4 cylinder more, but had to stay with the V6 during the time I rented. A lot of people were disappointed with the Q50's performance when it came out compared to the original G35 and 37.
