Ranking among the top, luxury small cars is the 2019 Volvo S60. Lagging some points behind is the 2019 Infiniti Q50. These two cars have great things to offer, sharing the fact that they have comfortable seats in common. Car buyers in Manhattan, however, have favored the S60 over the Q50. This comparison explains why that is the case.

Design & Style

A tough car that offers a blissful ride, the 2019 Volvo S60 will surely impress anyone who gets to see it. Consider how it has embraced excellence in terms of exterior aesthetics and interior functionalities. It has been fitted with great wheels and a perfect grille assembly that add class to its exterior. Inside it, the posh cabin is defined by its high-quality materials. Comfort is also one thing highlighted with the ample space to accommodate up to five adults inside.

Seating up to five adults as well, the 2019 Infiniti Q50 tries to reach what the S60 has achieved thus far, in terms of design. The exterior looks great for this car but it is not as athletic as its competitors, including that of the S60. Inside it, the combination of leatherette upholstery and maple wood trim is good but is not as impressive as the premium materials used in the Volvo.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Volvo S60 embodies a lot of great features in its technology and safety offerings. It has a nine-inch touchscreen made for all functions of its Sensus infotainment system. It also has a Bluetooth interface, 10-speaker audio, and it offers support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. For safety, it is equipped with adaptive headlights, front and rear parking sensors, and a surround-view parking camera. Driver features include a Pilot Assist, for semiautonomous driving, as well as other driver aids like blind-spot monitoring, parallel park assist, and adaptive cruise control.

The 2019 Infiniti Q50 has a dual touchscreen interface, one with an eight-inch size found as the upper screen, and the other a seven-inch screen on the lower part. Operating two screens for this car is quite a hassle though, and takes some learning curve. It only has six-speaker audio, voice recognition, and a Bluetooth interface. The car comes with safety aids like a rearview camera, forward emergency braking, and predictive forward collision warning.


Both cars are turbocharged with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter capacity engine but the Volvo S60 wins with a total output of 250 horsepower. The Infiniti Q50 reaches only up to 208 horsepower. The S60 is also more fuel-efficient to bear results of up to 24mpg for city driving and 36mpg for highway driving. The Q50's respective ratings are only set to reach 23mpg and 30mpg.

The Bottom Line

A sturdy body, a posh interior, and a lot of impressive technology and safety features - what else can you ask for in the 2019 Volvo S60? Do not forget that it also offers a remarkable engine performance, making it win over the Infiniti Q50 in all aspects.
