2016 Infiniti Q50 vs. 2016 Lexus IS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Infiniti Q50 than the Lexus IS 350. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS 350, the Infiniti Q50 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Infiniti Q50 as you will with the Lexus IS 350, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Infiniti Q50 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus IS 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Infiniti Q50 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lexus IS 350.

Dimensions
The Infiniti Q50 is about the same width as the Lexus IS 350. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Infiniti Q50, which is slightly longer than the Lexus IS 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti Q50 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus IS 350.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Infiniti Q50 and the Lexus IS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti Q50 and the Lexus IS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Infiniti Q50 as you will in the Lexus IS 350.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti Q50 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Lexus IS 350 in terms of months/miles.
