2018 INFINITI Q50 VS. 2018 BMW 5-SERIES

The 2018 INFINITI Q50 and BMW 5 Series are two of the best luxury mid-sized sedans on the market. The Q50 is dynamic, equipped for hybrid efficiency and is marvelous to pilot, while the BMW 5 Series incorporates cutting-edge gadgets combined with a powertrain that is simply outstanding. Which of the two should you buy?

Design & Style

While both vehicles look great, the BMW 5 Series is not a bad looking car on its own. It pays homage to previous BMW models while maintaining its own distinct look, not an easy design task. Its exterior is best defined as being sharp and sophisticated, while the INFINITI Q50 is curvier by comparison. This curviness, in comparison to the BMW, makes it look more dominating.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q50 comes equipped with all the features you’d expect in a modern vehicle, including adaptive steering. While the BMW does to, its most advanced features are seen as being overpriced, especially considering that they don’t do much more than those found in the Q50. Additionally, some have described the color combinations used in the BMW’s interior as being far too busy for their tastes, while the Q50 has just the right level of balance. While each vehicle seats a maximum of five passengers, the INFINITI Q50 also edges out the BMW slightly when it comes to passenger volume. The BMW 5 Series is the heavier car at 4,266 pounds, while the INFINITI Q50, at 3,671 pounds, is much lighter.

Performance

Each of these vehicles utilizes a 4 wheel brake system with rack pinion steering, and while the INFINITI uses an Intercooled Premium Turbo Unleaded I-4 engine, the BMW uses an Intercooled Turbo Electric/Gas I-4 engine. The BMW produces 248 horsepower at 4000 rpm while the Q50 has 208 horsepower at 5500 rpm. However, the difference in performance between the two vehicles will not even be noticeable to most drivers.

The Bottom Line

Although the BMW 5 Series is a great looking car, it isn’t enough to justify its higher cost. The differences in space and even the performance of the engine are so minuscule that few will notice it, so by purchasing the INFINITI Q50 you are getting an outstanding vehicle that will do virtually everything the BMW does without paying more, therefore the INFINITI is the better package here.
