2018 INFINITI Q50 VS. 2018 TOYOTA CAMRY | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


INFINITI’s 2018 Q50 is a robust, well-designed sedan that is packed with luxury features, has a streamlined exterior, respectable performance and a reasonable price point. Toyota’s 2018 Camry, however, is a highly competitive sedan in its own right, with an outstanding fuel economy, sleek exterior and numerous features which are calibrated. Which car is the better choice?

Design & Style

Both vehicles seat a maximum of five passengers with a total passenger volume that is quite similar. The Camry offers a bit more space in the front, at 55.4 inches versus 53.2 for the INFINITI. However, the INFINITI provides more headroom at 40.2 inches versus only 38.3 for the Toyota Camry. Neither vehicle has a significant advantage when it comes to space, so both are tied in this area.

Technology & Safety

Both vehicles have numerous safety features and are evenly matched in that regard. Each utilizes rack pinion steering and a 4 wheel anti-brake system. The Toyota has more cargo space at 14.1 ft versus only 13.2 for the INFINITI, and the Toyota also has superior fuel economy at 29 mpg versus only 23 mpg for the INFINITI. The Q50, however, is famous for its many luxury amenities and does not disappoint with its touchscreen, very comfortable leather seats, and high-end interior. The Camry also has a pleasant interior, but not on the same scale as the Q50.


This is where the INFINITI really shines. The Camry’s engine with its 203 horsepower at 6600 rpm is no match for the Q50 with its 208 horsepower at 5500 rpms. The INFINITI also has a much higher torque and incorporates a gasoline direct injection system that is more effective than the sequential MPI provided by the Toyota Camry. Although the Camry weighs less than the INFINITI the Q50 has more than enough power to make up for it.

The Bottom Line
When people think of luxury cars they think of INFINITI, while the Toyota, although a great vehicle that is dependable, has always been seen as a working-class car. This is apparent with its price tag. While the Toyota Camry can be purchased for under $24,000, an INFINITI Q50 costs just over $34,000, which is a difference of about $10,000. For those on a budget, this will matter a great choice, but for those who demand luxury and performance, the INFINITI is the better offer, and the higher price is worth it. The reason the Q50 costs more than the Camry is simply because it does more.
