2019 INFINITI Q50 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Serving Troy, MI

INFINITI and Mercedes-Benz are among the most coveted luxury automotive brands today, so you naturally have turned your attention to these brands as you prepare to take home a new compact luxury car. The 2019 INFINITI Q50 is a compact executive car that is in the middle of its second generation. It directly competes with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is also a compact executive car. As you compare these beautiful models carefully, you will discover that several standout features may indicate which car is preferable to you.


The stunning INFINITI Q50 for 2019 has flowing movement from front to rear. This begins with a flat front end that draws attention to the tapered, defined hood and crisp LED headlights that jet back dramatically toward the front fenders. The character lines across the upper and lower side panels become increasingly pronounced as they flow to the rear. The roofline rolls elegantly into a rear spoiler to finish the look.

In comparison, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has less definition across the hood. The headlights are more rounded, and the upper and lower side contour lines trend toward each other. The roofline’s slope is similar to that of the Q50, but the C-Class lacks a spoiler at the rear.


As luxury cars, both of these models are outfitted with high-quality materials and beautiful accents throughout their cabins. The interior design is noticeably different across the two models. In the 2019 INFINITI Q50, the center console has a dual-tone, crossing design that adds character to the interior. The center stack and console are thinner than what you will find in the C-Class. It features stacked digital display screens in full color to provide easy access to everything from the Bluetooth features to the smartphone integration apps, the navigation system, and more. In the C-Class, the center stack has a minimalistic quality, and a single display screen rises over the dashboard. Because the Q50 is more affordable than the C-Class at the base trim level, the relatively comparable features may be surprising.


If you want to take home a compact executive car that delivers excitement across every mile, you will be impressed by the performance capabilities of the 2019 INFINITI Q50. One of the powertrains that this car can be equipped with is a V6 twin-turbo, 3.0-liter engine with 400 horsepower. It also comes with intelligent all-wheel drive, a dynamic digital suspension system, a drive mode selector, and other equipment. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is outfitted with a twin-scroll turbo engine that provides 255 horsepower. All-wheel wheel drive, an automatic transmission, and shifting paddles are also included.
