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

2019 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2019 Kia Stinger

The 2019 INFINITI Q50 is a lovely car that has multiple powertrain options, a turbocharged V6 and enough space to comfortably carry four adults. But what happens when it goes up against the 2019 Kia Stinger, a stunning car which dazzles with its own powerful engine, solid handling and an assortment of safety tech?

Design & Style

While Kia has been known for its budget cars, it has shattered this image completely with the Stinger. Visually, the car has a style which is reminiscent of exotic Italian automobiles. It has a short overhang in front, with an extended hood and roofline which soars in a way that gives it excellent proportion. It has numerous spoilers, ducts and creases, giving it a sporty yet elegant appearance. In short, the car is as sharp as a razor. Inside, drivers will be presented with prominent gauges encapsulated in metal, with luxurious Nappa leather covering. The INFINITI Q50 is also sleek and muscular, with an interior that has been enhanced with quilted leather and a crease in the front with prominent haunches in the rear. The dashboard is dominated by an infotainment system which is a dual touchscreen and every surface is covered in upmarket materials. Accents made from Black trim, in particular, give the exterior a menacing look.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q50 has an assortment of outstanding safety features. These include basic things like wider glass windows which provide greater visibility, and more advanced functions such as frontal impact notifications, emergency automatic brakes, blind area monitoring, and cruise and lane control. Passengers will also be given access to Bluetooth support, multiple touchscreens, and ports for USB devices, heated/cooled seats, and a world-class sound system. The Kia Stinger has received the coveted Top Safety Pick award through the IIHS, which is due to its many safety features such as a camera with surround view, monitoring for blind spots, automated emergency brakes, automated headlights, cruise control and LEDs. Inside, passengers will be treated to climate control, seven-inch touch screens, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth support and power seats in front.


The Kia Stinger is as fast as its name suggests. It is equipped with a turbo 4, 2-liter engine that can generate 255 horsepower. The INFINITI Q50 answers with a V6, turbocharged engine that can produce 300 horsepower or 400 if one chooses the Red Sport Trim.

The Bottom Line

Both of these automobiles are sexy and evenly matched in almost every area. However, the Kia has a number of things working against it. Aside from the fact that the Q50 has a substantial performance edge, especially if one chooses the Red Sport variant, the Stinger doesn’t even have a manual transmission, so the INFINITI wins.
