2014 Infiniti Q50 Hybrid vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Infiniti Q50 Hybrid has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class in terms of months/miles.
