2019 INFINITI Q50 vs 2018 INFINITI Q50

Serving Troy, MI

The INFINITI Q50 is undoubtedly the compact executive car that you want as your next vehicle. Initially offered for sale in 2014, the Q50 has benefited from thoughtful improvements and upgrades over the years. The 2018 INFINITI Q50 is a beautiful car that is outfitted with luxurious features and responsive technologies across all trims, but you may be wondering if you should opt for the newer 2019 model instead. Both model years promise to impress you across every mile, and our INFINITI experts at Suburban INFINITI of Troy will assist you as you compare the differences.


The 2018 and 2019 Q50 luxury cars are well-appointed with stellar powertrains and mechanical features across the trims. The 2019 Q50 PURE is now equipped with a turbocharged 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that provides you with 208 horsepower. As is the case with the 2018 model, the other trims for the 2019 Q50 are outfitted with a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine that offers 300 horsepower or 400 horsepower. Also, the 2018 Q50 only offered the dynamic digital suspension with the Red Sport 400 trim, but this is now available for the 2019 Q50 Sport as well.


The 2018 and 2019 model years have similar appeal throughout the exterior and across all available trims. This includes rounded sculpting throughout the hood and side panels and steep curvature across the profile. The sporty yet elegant grille is set off by the triangular LED headlights with a signature accent ribbon running across its diagonal. Fog lights, a sunroof, and several wheel designs and styles add to the beautiful look of both models.


The 2018 Q50 is well-appointed with stunning materials and accents throughout the interior. Depending on the trim selected, you may enjoy quilted leather trim, a stacked touch-screen panel in the center of the dashboard, extensive safety assistive technologies and more. For 2019, the Q50 includes a few additional features, such as forward emergency braking and predictive forward collision warning technologies that are standard across all trims. If you opt for the 2019 Q50 Sport trim, some of the features that are optional for the 2018 model year are standard for the 2019 model year. These include a Bose premium sound system with 16 speakers, memory function for both front seats, an advanced climate control system, remote engine start, heated front seats, a navigation system, blind spot monitoring, a surround-view monitor and a few other features.
