Comparison Review

Comfort
The INFINITI Q50 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 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The INFINITI Q50 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
