Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Stinger than the INFINITI Q50, due to its greater head- and legroom. The INFINITI Q50 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Stinger.

Convenience
With the INFINITI Q50 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Stinger, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.
