Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 530 than the INFINITI Q50. The INFINITI Q50 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 530.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 530 as you will with the INFINITI Q50, 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 BMW 530 is somewhat more expensive than the INFINITI Q50. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 530 and the INFINITI Q50 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 530 is much wider than the INFINITI Q50, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 530, which is slightly longer than the INFINITI Q50.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 530 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the INFINITI Q50.

Handling
The BMW 530 has a larger turning radius than the INFINITI Q50, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 530 has less horsepower than the INFINITI Q50, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 530 and the INFINITI Q50. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 530 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the INFINITI Q50.

Warranty
The INFINITI Q50 offers a little more coverage in its basic warranty than the BMW 530.
