From the base Q50 with a 2.0-liter I4 to the Red Sport, all trims use a seven-speed automatic transmission, and come standard with rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional across the board.

After five years on the market, the Q50's interior design still looks great. It's a comfortable cabin, too.

The Q50's greatest downfall is its antiquated infotainment that doesn't even offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

At 13.5 cubic feet, trunk space is generous for the compact sports sedan segment.

On the driver assistance front, only automatic emergency braking comes standard, but features like adaptive cruise control with lane-keep assist are optional.
