The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Infiniti Q40 is, literally, last year's model. Alongside the new Q50 it offers a compelling, more vivid driving experience -- albeit with far less refinement. The 2015 Lexus IS offers a good blend of comfort, style, technology, and driving dynamics.
