Here’s How the 2018 BMW 530i Measures up to the 2018 Infiniti Q50
When it's time to purchase your next vehicle, you want to make sure and ensure sure that you're buying the right one for you. To assist with that endeavor, we're taking a look at the 2018 530i sedan and how it compares to another vehicle in its class, the Infiniti Q50. While both cars come in several trim levels and with a variety of powertrain options, we chose similarly equipped models to make a fair comparison.
It's true that the 530i has a higher Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, but it also has been constructed with the finest German engineering in its DNA. Even though the 530i is wider, longer and taller than the Infiniti, it still offers the better fuel efficiency of the two vehicles. The BMW is rated to deliver an estimated 24 city/34 highway/27 combined fuel economy, while the Infiniti is rated for 22 city/28 highway/24 combined. In time, the savings you'll realize on fuel expenses will really add up.
Both cars features a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine, but the 530i engine boasts twin turbochargers. When you hit the accelerator, you'll quickly realize that the BMW 530i offers 248 horsepower, easily besting the 208 made by the Q50. The 530i partners its engine to an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the Infiniti is teamed with a 7-speed automatic.
The 530i features a roomy 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, allowing you to transport more gear than you can with the Q50's 13.2 cubic feet.
You can drive with the assurance that comes from knowing that the BMW 530i includes four years of Roadside Assistance, which the Infiniti does not.
