Numerous choices for sedans exist, and many of them offer advanced technology and sporty style to put the fun in functionality. Two of the top contenders are the 2020 INFINITI Q50 and the 2020 Kia Stinger. Both models feature athletic styling and are loaded with amenities, so you must decide which is the better option.
While both models put a little pep in the ride, the 2020 INFINITI Q50 takes it a step further by making the 3.0L V6 the standard engine for the base trim. This engine gets up to 300 horsepower as compared to the I-4 of the Kia at 255 horsepower. At the same time, efficiency doesn’t drop since the two models compare nicely with fuel economy in the mid-20s for combined MPG. Both sedans also feature an automatic transmission with the option of rear- or all-wheel drive even at the base level.
Style and Convenience
Even at the base trim level, both INFINITI and Kia like to add something extra for buyers. Both models include leather trim on the low trim, but the 2020 INFINITI Q50 includes a few extras, like a tilt-telescoping steering column. The Q50 also makes it easier to bypass more fuel stations with a larger fuel tank at 20 gallons over the nearly 16-gallon tank of the Kia. Power windows and doors are standard for these modern models, but the INFINITI includes one-touch up and down for the front and rear. Fog lights are also standard on the base trim of the Q50 to add a sporty touch that is also practical. Heated mirrors are standard across all trims on both models, but only the INFINITI makes rain-sensing windshield wipers standard on the lowest trim.
When buyers look at sedans, they expect to find a comfortable ride. Kia and INFINITI meet expectations in this category with modern conveniences and style. Overall, the 2020 INFINITI Q50 gives everyone just a little more space with 101 cubic feet of passenger volume over Kia’s 94 cubic feet. The Q50 has almost two inches more of front legroom and headroom while competing pretty evenly for shoulder room. Regular suspension provides for a comfortable ride while the double wishbone front suspension of the INFINITI also enhances agility. Speed-sensitive steering is standard on the Q50 sedan for less work from the driver.
Neither INFINITI nor Kia leave you behind when it comes to technology. Both sedans include such features as Bluetooth and voice recognition to keep you informed and up to date. However, the 2020 INFINITI Q50 doesn’t abandon the tried and true technology of the CD player and MP3 compatibility. Upgrade to the top trim for premium entertainment with a sound system that features an amplifier and multiple speakers. Get 16 speakers on the INFINITI while the Kia remains competitive with 15.
