2016 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid 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 Hybrid than the Lexus IS 350. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS 350, the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus IS 350, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Hybrid 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 Hybrid will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lexus IS 350.

Dimensions
The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid 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 Hybrid, which is slightly longer than the Lexus IS 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus IS 350.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid 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 Hybrid and the Lexus IS 350. The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus IS 350, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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