2019 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2019 Kia Cadenza | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2019 Kia Cadenza

With the release of the 2019 Cadenza, Kia has proven that it can manufacture a luxury car. The majestic and spacious interior, serene driving experience and infotainment make it one of the best cars in its class. But what happens when it goes against the 2019 INFINITI Q50, a car which for many years has dominated the market due to its exceptional looks, formidable engine and powertrain options?

Design & Style

The INFINITI Q50 looks best in Luxe or Pure trim. It has a sharp and powerful presence, with an interior that has been updated with the latest materials and gear. The leather looks and feels wonderful and the dashboard emphasizes the infotainment dual screen, which gives drivers easy access to the info they need at all times. The quilted leather looks best in black, and some models use extra chrome in the exterior to reinforce its luminous appearance. The Kia Cadenza has sheet metal which is beautifully sculpted. It has eighteen inch alloy wheels with a grille that is concave and running lights which are Z shaped. The interior makes use of plastics which are soft touch, along with higher end materials such as nappa leather, diamond stitching and faux suede.

Technology & Safety

The IIHS adores the Kia Cadenza, giving it the prestigious Top Safety Pick award. This is the result of its many safety features, like blind area monitoring, lane control, backup camera, alerts for rear cross traffic, and frontal impact warnings. Inside, passengers will be treated to heated seats, climate control, satellite navigation, panoramic sunroof, and Harman/Kardon sound. The INFINITI Q50 is equipped with cruise control that is adaptive, automatic emergency brakes, frontal collision warnings and lane control. Passengers within the cabin will enjoy perks like heated seats, heated steering, Bluetooth support, USB ports, infotainment and seats that can be power adjusted.


The INFINITI Q50 is exceptionally powerful. It can be equipped with a V6, turbocharged engine that is capable of generating up to 300 horsepower, that is wedded to a seven speed automatic. The Kia Cadenza is equipped with a V6 engine that is 3.3 liter and capable generating 290 horsepower, which allows it to go from zero to sixty in about 5.9 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Choosing between these two cars is no easy task, as both are great looking, evenly matched in terms of performance, and packed with many of the same amenities. However, the Cadenza’s miles per gallon are lackluster when compared to the Q50, as is the handling, and a lot of its active safety gear should be standard, so the INFINITI wins.
