Driving a luxury sedan isn't just about looking incredible on the road. Luxury sedan drivers in Doylestown, Chalfont, and Warrington prioritize other things as well such as performance, interior luxury, and safety. If you're on the hunt for a vehicle like this, look no further.

The 2018 Genesis G80 and the 2018 INFINITI Q50 offer all of these impressive features to offer and more. We at Fred Beans Genesis are here today to help you decide which one is a better fit for your busy lifestyle. Read ahead to see how these two impressive vehicles stack up against each other!

G80 vs Q50: Performance Specifications

To get the ball rolling, the 2018 Genesis G80 standardly features a high-powered 3.8L V6 engine. This engine generates and impressive 311 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque. This engine, and the G80's other two available engines, come standardly paired with the 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and paddle shifters.

As for the 2018 INFINITI Q50, you'll have two instead of three engines to choose from starting with the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. With a 4-cylinder engine, you won't see near as much power output as the G80. This standard engine puts out just 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

Even with the available 3.0L V6 engine, the Q50 still can't compare. You'll max out at 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque while the G80 goes above beyond to provide a whopping 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque with its available 5.0L V8 engine.

G80 vs Q50: Luxurious Interior Features

As luxury sedans, it comes as no surprise that both the 2018 Genesis G80 and the 2018 INFINITI Q50 offer a variety of premium interior features. Both vehicles come standardly equipped with dual-zone front automatic climate control systems, which allow you to set a desired temperature and go, without having to worry about fiddling with the controls in order to get comfortable.

Just like in its performance, the G80 goes the extra mile in terms of luxurious interior features. Standard in this model is leather upholstery as well as heated driver and front passenger seats. Even in the base trim of this model, you can opt for cooled front seats as well.

Unfortunately, in the Q50, you'll have to upgrade for leather upholstery and heated front seats as they don't come standard. Additionally, the Q50 doesn't offer cooled front seats at all so you'll have to rely on the air conditioner to get comfortable.

G80 vs Q50: Advanced Safety Systems

Both the 2018 Genesis G80 and the 2018 INFINITI Q50 offer the most advanced safety features on the market. You'll be able to drive confidently in both vehicles with features like Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.

The G80 had a leg up on the Q50, though, because all of these features and more are offered standardly in the G80. These features are available in the Q50, but you'll have to upgrade to access them.

One additional safety features you'll have on your side in the G80 is Driver Attention Alert. This advanced system constantly analyzes your driving patterns while you drive. When it detects changes in those patterns due to fatigue or distraction, it'll use audio and visual alerts to get you refocused or to let you know it's time to take a break from driving.

2018 Genesis G80 vs 2018 INFINITI Q50: Which One?

As you can see, there's a lot to be excited about in both the 2018 Genesis G80 and the 2018 INFINITI Q50. However, we at Fred Beans Genesis believe that luxury sedan drivers in Doylestown, Chalfont, and Warrington will appreciate the G80's extra power, impressive standard features, and wide range of helpful safety features.
