2019 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2019 Mercedes Benz A Class | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2019 Mercedes Benz A Class

The 2019 Mercedes Benz A Class is spacious and attractive, with a state of the art control interface and outstanding value for the price tag. However, it is rivaled by the 2019 INFINITI Q50, a luxury vehicle prized for its hybrid performance, Red Sport engine and updated interior. Which of them should you buy?

Design & Style

A number of refinements have been made to the exterior and interior of the Q50, including refreshed trim, new back and front bumpers and fascias. Depending on the version you buy, the vehicle will be equipped with either eighteen or nineteen inch wheels. The Mercedes A Class has the look of a classical sedan, with lines that are swoopier than previous editions. It has more space, cutting edge infotainment and a sunroof that is panoramic with ambient lighting. The arches of the wheels are pronounced.

Technology & Safety

While the Mercedes Benz A Class offers every safety countermeasure you can imagine, most of it is not included and buyers must pay extra. It does come with a rearview camera, airbags and a distinct feature called attention assist. Those that pay extra will also get frontal collision notifications, detection for cross traffic, lane control which is active and emergency automatic brakes.

Mercedes is well known for its many luxuries, and passengers will be treated to climate control which is automatic and dual zone, memory seating, keyless access, seven inch touch screens and Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.  The INFINITI Q50 also has many of the same safety features, such as blind area monitoring, warnings when departing lanes, frontal collision notifications and automatic emergency brakes, with unique features such as steering which is Direct Adaptive and Distance Control Assist. Within the cabin, passengers will be treated to climate control which is dual zone, Bluetooth support, seats that can be adjusted eight ways, and eight inch touchscreens.


The INFINITI Q50 uses a gas powered engine that gives it unbelievable power. The base model comes with 208 horsepower, but can be upgraded to a V6 with 300 horsepower or the 3 liter Red Sport that has 400 horsepower. The Mercedes Benz A Class base model has a single powertrain, with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can produce 188 horsepower with 221 pounds of torque.

The Bottom Line

Both of these vehicles are evenly matched when it comes to looks, price, and interior amenities. However, the Q50 edges out the Mercedes A Class when it comes to performance and this combined with the extra cost for safety features means the INFINITI wins.
