2018 Acura TLX vs 2018 INFINITI Q50 Performance & Efficiency

Surprisingly, the Acura TLX and the INFINITI Q50 have very different engines and options. The Acura TLX comes standard with the 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and the 8-speed Dual Clutch transmission, or the optional 3.5L V6 with the 9-speed automatic transmission. The INFINITI Q50 gets its abilities from the 2.0L Turbo engine or the available 3.0L V6 Turbo, both of which come mated with a 7-speed automatic.

When it comes to the performance of each engine and engine upgrade, their differences aren't that drastic. The Acura TLX seems more suited for the sporty driver with its numerous gear ratios. However, when it comes to fuel efficiency, the Acura TLX has a clear lead with 23 city/33 highway* when equipped with its 4-cylinder engine. The INFINITI Q50 keeps up with the 23 city MPG, but falls short on the highway with 30 MPG.

Interior Style & Comfort

The Acura TLX and the INFINITI Q50 both offer stylish and spacious interiors that are suitable for five respective passengers to ride comfortably. Each vehicle even features leatherette-trimmed seating that provides exceptional style, as well as comfort. However, the driver of the Acura TLX would be more comfortable with the 10-way power adjustable seat vs the 8-way power adjustable seat in the INFINITI Q50.

Media & Technology Features

Each sedan comes with high-resolution dashboard-mounted screens to allow the driver to easily access their preferred media. Both vehicles feature an AM/FM radio, CD player, Bluetooth® connectivity, and 3-month trial subscriptions of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. The Acura TLX also includes Pandora® and Aha™ compatibility. In terms of sound delivery, the Acura TLX comes with a 7-speaker premium sound system and the INFINITI Q50 features a 6-speaker system.
