2018 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2018 Fiat 124 Spider | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2018 Fiat 124 Spider

The 2018 Fiat 124 Spider is a car which is nimble, liberating, and comfortable to drive. This, combined with its reasonable price tag, has given it general acclaim from many automobile enthusiasts. But how does it match up against the 2018 INFINITI Q50, a car coveted for its formidable engine, efficient hybrid and high society interior?

Design & Style

A new fascia has been added to both the front and rear of the Q50, which is geared towards the trim level buyers choose, whether be it Luxe or Pure. Overall, the car is more aggressive than prior editions, with a number of enhancements which have been made within the cabin. With the Q50, INFINITI manages to balance luxury with sportiness and does it well.

The exterior has a nice aerodynamic touch, making it clear this vehicle can accelerate quickly when it needs to, but the opulence of the interior makes it clear that it is also designed to provide comfort for those fortunate enough to sit in it.

On the other hand, the Fiat has that classic sports car look that has been merged with modernity. It uses a honeycomb styled grille with eyelid headlights. Beneath the grille the air intake is visible, with fog lights nearby. Inside, the 124 Spider heavily utilizes surfaces which are soft touch.

Technology & Safety

One of the strongest safety attributes of the Fiat 1254 Spider is its agility, which can seemingly prevent crashes before they occur. Aside from this, the car is equipped with park assistance, rearview camera, blind zone monitoring and notifications for cross traffic. Within the cabin it has cloth upholstery, seating that can be manually adjusted six ways, power locks and windows, Bluetooth support, USB connectivity, keyless entry, and cruise control.

The INFINITI Q50 has an array of active protective measures, such as Distance Control and adaptive steering. Within the cabin, passengers can expect climate control which is dual zone, satellite radio, an audio system with six speakers, seating which is adjustable eight ways, and eight inch touchscreens.


The 124 Spider has decent handling often seen in a sports car of its class. In fact, a driver experienced in piloting it can use the handling to avoid collisions. Under the hood, it uses a standard 4 cylinder, 1.4 liter engine that can produce 160 horsepower with 184 pound of torque. It can accelerate from zero to sixty in just under 7 seconds.

Whereas the Fiat’s greatest advantage is its handling, the greatest advantage of the Q50 is its engine power. It comes with a standard 2 liter that can produce 208 horsepower with 258 pound of torque, enough to surpass many prestigious vehicles such as those Audi and BMW models, and can be further upgraded to a V6 with 300 horsepower or the Red Sport with 400 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

While the 124 Fiat Spider has a lot going for it, it is simply outmuscled by the Q50. This combined with its lackluster interior means that the INFINITI wins this comparison without sweat!
