2019 INFINITI Q50 vs 2019 Lexus IS

Serving Novi, MI

A sports sedan is perfect for drivers who need a bit more practicality. The 2019 INFINITI Q50 is among the most exciting cars in the segment. Seductive exterior styling and a luxurious interior make it hard to beat. Let’s see how the 2019 INFINITI Q50 compares to the 2019 Lexus IS.


Like the new 2019 INFINITI Q50, the 2019 Lexus IS comes standard with an efficient four-cylinder engine. However, an available turbocharged V6 engine gives the Q50 a serious performance advantage over the IS. Special engine tuning enables the electrifying Q50 Red Sport to develop 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. With a total output of 311 horsepower, the V6-powered Lexus IS is simply no match. Furthermore, only the INFINITI Q50 can be outfitted with adjustable suspension dampers.

Interior Space

When driving the 2019 INFINITI Q50, you can look forward to experiencing a great deal of comfort. Families will especially appreciate its roomier interior design. Your backseat passengers will be rewarded with an extra 2.9 inches of legroom. You can also take advantage of the Q50’s additional cargo space. While the Q50 boasts a trunk volume of 13.2 cubic feet, the Lexus IS has a much smaller trunk volume of 10.9 cubic feet. This means you won’t be able to pack nearly as many travel bags in the Lexus IS.


Both of these sport sedans have received strong safety scores. However, some exclusive driving aids are available on the new INFINITI Q50. When traveling on a rural road at night, you’ll greatly benefit from the Q50’s adaptive headlights. While the Lexus IS offers forward collision warning technology, the Q50’s Predictive Forward Collision Warning system is more advanced. It can anticipate an accident two vehicles ahead, which gives drivers more time to react during emergency situations. INFINITI’s 360-degree Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection is another cutting-edge safety technology only offered on the new Q50.
