2019 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2019 Dodge Charger

The 2019 Dodge Charger lives up to its name, being one of the most formidable performance cars on the market. But how does it stack up against the 2019 INFINITI Q50, a car that maintains a superb balance between power and looks?

Design & Style

A number of changes have been made to the latest Q50, including refreshed trim, new bumpers, and an interior that is even more sophisticated than before. Externally, the fascias in the rear and front have been altered so that they are in perfect alignment with the chosen trim. Visually, the Dodge Charger is the quintessential muscle car. The front end has been modified slightly, but overall, the car is similar to previous models. Its outer edges are hard in most places but smooth in others. Its grille is thin, yet wide, with roof pillars that are prominent.

Technology & Safety

Although the Charger has earned good NHTSA scores for rollover and side protection, it has not done as well on IIHS tests. It can be equipped with 6 airbags, parking sensors, high beams which are automated, and blind area monitoring and frontal impact notifications. Within the cabin, passengers will be treated to Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, ignition that is keyless, touch screens that are 7 inches and Bluetooth support. The INFINITI Q50 is exceptionally advanced when it comes to safety. It has all of the same features as the Charger, such as blind area monitoring and frontal impact notifications, but it also has a distinct feature called Distance Control Assist, which allows the vehicle to maintain a specific distance from nearby cars automatically. Passengers will be treated to climate control that is dual zone, a sound system with 6 speakers, satellite radio, seats that can be adjusted eight ways, and eight inch touch screens.

Performance

Although INFINITI is known for opulence, its cars also provide substantial power. The Q50 comes with a 2 liter engine that has 208 horsepower with 258 pound of torque, but drivers craving maximum power can upgrade to the Red Sport 400, which has a V6, 3 liter engine that provides 400 horsepower with 350 pound of torque. The Dodge Charger is incredibly potent, with a standard V6, 3.6 liter that offers 292 horsepower with 260 pound of torque, but can be upgraded to a 5.7 liter V8 that gives 370 horsepower with 395 pound of torque, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 60 in just under six seconds.

The Bottom Line

While both of these cars are easy on the eyes and offer lots of power, the INFINITI Q50 edges out the Charger, as it offers greater luxury, better safety features, and the Red Sport edition provides it with enough power to hold its own against the Dodge.
