2014 Infiniti Q60 vs. 2014 Lexus IS 250C Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Infiniti Q60 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus IS 250C with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS 250C, the Infiniti Q60 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 Q60 as you will with the Lexus IS 250C, 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 Q60 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus IS 250C. 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 Q60 and the Lexus IS 250C have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Infiniti Q60 is much wider than the Lexus IS 250C, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Infiniti Q60 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus IS 250C.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti Q60 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus IS 250C.

Handling
The Infiniti Q60 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 250C, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti Q60 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus IS 250C. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti Q60 and the Lexus IS 250C. The Infiniti Q60 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus IS 250C, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti Q60 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Lexus IS 250C in terms of months/miles.
