2018 INFINITI Q50 VS. 2018 CHRYSLER 300 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q50 VS. 2018 CHRYSLER 300

Both the 2018 INFINITI Q50 and 2018 Chrysler 300 are at the tip of the spear when it comes to luxury, safety, performance and cost. The interior of the Q50 has been updated, and it now offers hybrid efficiency. The Chrysler 300 has a dynamic V6 engine with a cabin that is very high end. Which of the two is the sweeter choice?

Design & Style

The Chrysler 300 has a classy profile with an interior that is exceptionally detailed. In truth, the newest edition isn’t radically different from previous versions, but it doesn’t need to be. Its rounded corners combined with balanced angles give it an elegant look. The nose is long with a trunk that is short. On the other hand, the INFINITI Q50 looks good both on the inside and outside. The latest edition has been subject to a few changes, which result in a car that is more aggressive than its predecessors. Chrome accents are present, along with an aerodynamic feel on the fascia.

Technology & Safety

The Q50 has a comprehensive suite of advanced safety mechanisms to ensure both drivers and passengers are protected. Just a few of these include emergency automatic brakes, collision detection, cruise control which is adaptive, and monitoring for blind spots. Unfortunately, the Chrysler 300 has not performed well on its safety tests. The most recent data from the NHTSA indicate that the vehicle has a four star rating overall. The IIHS rated it as “Good” for front crash tests, but it received a “Marginal” score for overlap crashes. On paper, it has many of the same features as the Q50, including high beams which are automated.


The Chrysler 300 comes equipped with a V6 engine that gives it considerable power. This power can be extended further should the buyer choose the V8 upgrade. Its V6 engine is 3.6 liters and provides a maximum of 300 horsepower. Its cold air intake along with performance exhaust is impressive. Although INFINITI originates in Japan, the Q50 has American grade performance, lots of it. It has a V6 engine which can produce up to 300 horsepower, which makes it evenly matched with the Chrysler 300.

The Bottom Line

The INFINITI Q50 and Chrysler 300 are both attractive sedans which offer lots of benefits to those who own them. However, the poor safety ratings of the Chrysler 300 combined with insufficient room in the rear seat make it a vehicle that underperforms when compared to the INFINITI, so it is not hard to rule that the Q50 wins.
