2018 Volvo S60 vs. 2018 Infiniti Q50

The Infiniti Q50 is one of the most elegant vehicles out there in the luxury car market, while Volvo S60 has a class of its own with multiple engine options. If you are confused between these two models, this comparison will tell you which one is a better investment.

Design & Style

The Infiniti Q50 is a 5-seater with adequate room for adult passengers, although headroom is a bit cramped. It is quite sub-standard compared to other rivals offering better comfort features. There's also not much to talk about the interior quality since German rivals have more lavish interiors. The 2018 Volvo S60 simply outclasses it with an appealing exterior and a charming interior. There is plenty of headroom and legroom for adult passengers, and the seats are quite supportive. The cargo space is also quite sufficient to fit in grocery bags.

Technology & Safety

Technology plays an important role in determining the true potential of a car. Apart from an 8-inch touch screen InTouch infotainment system, other standard features include two USB ports, Bluetooth and smartphone app integration. The intuitive menus can be easy to operate, but it can take time to master touch screen controls. For safety, a rearview camera comes standard, along with available safety features including adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and parking sensors.

Talking about the 2018 Volvo S60, standard technology features include Sensus infotainment system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, Bluetooth, HD Radio and satellite radio. One of the biggest selling points for S60 is its City Safety System, which checks for pedestrians and vehicles in front of you, indicating a potential collision and automatically pressing the brakes.


Performance is the backbone of any vehicle, and both these models have impressive numbers. The Infiniti Q50 comes equipped with a 208 HP turbo-four engine that has sufficient power for day-to-day driving. On the other hand, the Volvo S60 is a powerful vehicle with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle moves easily with a 240 HP rating. One can also update to a higher trim level, providing both supercharged and turbocharged engine ramping up to 300 HP. Gas mileage is also quite satisfactory, compared to other rivals of its class.

The Bottom Line

Very few rivals can compete with Volvo S60 in terms of handling and performance. You have limited engine options with Infiniti Q50, as compared to Volvo S60. Also, the interior and exterior styling is quite superior for Volvo S60. Given the overall brand value and comprehensive package, there should be absolutely no doubt in picking Volvo S60 as your next car.
