Scorecard

Interior: 7.8

Critics say the 2015 Infiniti Q40 has an attractive cabin design and solid overall build quality, though some point out that rivals offer nicer materials. Some auto writers complain that the Q40 lacks high-tech features such as forward collision warning, though they note that the Q40 has easy-to-use dashboard controls and comfortable front seats.

  • "Inside, the dashboard has an attractive and generally upscale look along with logically arranged controls. Some materials aren't quite up to snuff, but the Q40 does come generously equipped with leather upholstery, heated front seats and a rear-view camera." -- Left Lane News
  • "The interior could also use some higher quality materials." -- AutoTrader
  • "The Q40 offers user-friendly controls and good build quality, but things don't feel as luxurious on the inside as they once did. Overall, most competitors seem to have higher standards, but considering its price, this Infiniti sedan is relatively appealing." -- Edmunds
  • "… the interior also boasts high-quality materials and assembly, and the seats are exceptionally comfortable. While not particularly fancy, it feels upscale and classy inside, and there's a decently sized rear seat as well." -- Kelley Blue Book

Seating

The 2015 Infiniti Q40 seats five and comes standard with leather upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable heated front seats. The Q40’s front seats are comfortable and supportive, test drivers say, and its back seat has adequate head- and legroom.

  • "The front seats are comfortable and supportive, with sufficient headroom in the front and rear seats. The amount of rear seat legroom depends on what you compare the Q40 to. Against smaller, but similarly priced competitors like the Audi A3, it's noticeably more generous. Against similarly sized competitors, the backseat will be average at best." --Edmunds
  • "Passenger room is more than respectable in both the front and back seats." -- Left Lane News

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2015 Infiniti Q40 include dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights, push-button start, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a USB port, satellite radio, a six-speaker audio system and a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system. Available features include a moonroof, a 10-speaker Bose audio system and navigation.

Some reviewers complain that the 2015 Q40 doesn’t have features such as forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control. However, most say that the Q40’s features are easier to use than those in some competing vehicles. Test drivers especially appreciate that the Q40 uses traditional knobs and buttons for the audio and climate systems.

  • "The biggest drawback for us is the Q40's lack of cutting-edge technologies, namely features such as adaptive cruise control, collision warning and mitigation, and an app-based audio system." -- AutoTrader
  • "You can't get as many up-to-the-minute high-tech features in the Q40, but the electronic features it does have benefit from controls that are well organized and easy to find. Indeed, the combination of physical buttons, touchscreen and the multipurpose knob that controls the myriad audio, climate and navigation controls are likely to be easier to figure out than newer, more advanced systems." -- Edmunds
  • "If you're a fan of knobs and buttons, instead of the ever-more-present touch screens, then you're going to love the interior of the 2015 Infiniti Q40. While there is a touch screen at the top of the dash, used for multiple functions, there are actual knobs for the audio system and climate control, and even that touch screen has a knob-based system for many of its functions." -- Kelley Blue Book

Cargo

The 2015 Infiniti Q40 has 13.5 cubic feet of trunk space, which is on par with the trunk space that many competitors offer. The Q40’s rear seats don’t fold, but it does have a center pass-through for long items.

  • "Trunk space, at 13.5 cubic feet, is about average for its class." -- Edmunds
