JWreck,

Not to disagree with you, but I will, I noted the Macan was Rear Wheel drive biased in my post, please read it again.

Even though the Macan and A5 are similar, and the Macan is built on a similar platform with identical hard points, the AWD systems are tuned differently. Porsche is RWD biased, Audi it is not.

Also Note, I didn't say that Zero to 60 meant nothing, it does. What I did note, was that it's not the only thing. I think handling and the AWD systems bias is also very important.

As for Alpha, I can't be past the front end for them!

As for Infiniti and Nissan quality, my 2006 M45 was rock solid with no issues whatsoever in the 140k miles I had it until my son totaled it. While the newest QX60 (I think that is the right name for their smaller SUV) looks really good (since they stole the shape from the F-Pace), I doubt that it has the same handling and performance numbers that the F-Pace has.

And not going back to the dealership regularly would be boring. I'd miss all my new friends there!

Lexus, I think, is RW bias as well. At least the IS is (or used to be).

Agreed about infinti, on all counts. I moved to F Pace from an FX, and aside from the garbage CVT, the vehicle was great, and also pretty great value. Obviously not the drivers car the F Pace is, but solid all around.

It's the QX50 -- a ground up redesign for 2019. The Edmunds review is here: https://www.edmunds.com/infiniti/qx50/

I suspect this crowd will disqualify it based on a single paragraph in the review:

Driving 6.5 {out of 10}
Competent and innocuous. Its revolutionary engine is let down by an annoying transmission that's often a half-step behind. It's too bad since the engine is refined and powerful. While not a sporting SUV, its handling is predictable and cooperative. The steering, however, is a mixed bag.


Because when I think daily driver, I think competent and innocuous. Too bad.

6.5 is being nice. I traded in a QX50 for the FP because of a horrible lag. A full 1 thousand and 1 then the car goes, bloody dangerous. 2019 is worse I heard.

Looks like they won't put me into another F-Pace to compete with mine, due to the price being much higher for an 'S' model V6S and I told them I won't take a 4cylinder. I even test drove another 30t (300hp) 4Cylinder 2019 F-Pace Prestige. Did not like it.

Ugh..

On another note, I drove a new Cadillac XT4 and that felt closest to the F-Pace with regards to driving dynamics. Sadly the dash cluster is just HORRIBLY laid out in it.

CVT flat out sucks in Infin/Nissan currently, but I've been driving a mid 2000's FX45 in FL as a 2nd car, and while it doesn't have some of the latest safety equipment, its just a badass and dependable car to drive. With Premium at Sam's club down here at 2.30 a gal, it is fun ripping it up and down the road. No substitute for V8 power !
