How should you go about narrowing your options in the always-competitive luxury sedan segment? Start shopping around, and you’ll find that two contenders rise to the top of the ranks again and again: the 2022 INFINITI Q50 and the Lexus ES 350. In the INFINITI vs. Lexus sedan comparison to follow, we’ll look at the INFINITI Q50 vs. Lexus ES 350 specs and features in detail, so you have all the info you need to make an informed decision. When you’re ready for a test drive, don’t wait to visit our showroom near Hobe Sound!

2022 INFINITI Q50 vs. Lexus ES 350: AWD Options

If all-wheel drive is on your must-have list, then you will appreciate that the Q50 lineup offers a wider range of options for this upgraded drivetrain option. Each INFINITI Q50 trim—from the base Luxe to the top Red Sport 400—is available in both FWD and AWD configurations. Compare that to the Lexus ES 350, which offers a single AWD configuration.

It’s also worth your while to compare the Q50 vs. EX starting price for AWD models. You’ll pay quite a bit more for the only Lexus ES 350 AWD configuration ($51,205 MSRP) than you will for the most accessible INFINITI Q50 AWD configuration ($44,100* MSRP).

2022 INFINITI Q50 vs. Lexus ES 350: Dimensions

As you can see by comparing the Q50 vs. EX dimensions, the INFINITI Q50 interior prioritizes comfort in the front row, with less room in the rear. That’s a fine tradeoff if you aren’t planning to travel with a full cabin of adult passengers for long distances.

For its part, the ES 350 offers the same amount of headroom front and rear, a solution that reduces comfort for adults in both rows—a judgment call that, for many Port Saint Lucie-area commuters, tips the scales in favor of the Q50 in this INFINITI vs. Lexus sedan comparison! See below for details:

INFINITI Q50 Interior Dimensions

  • Front headroom (with moonroof): 39.5 in
  • Rear headroom (with moonroof): 36.8 in
  • Front legroom: 44.5 in
  • Rear legroom: 35.1 in

Lexus Interior Dimensions

  • Front headroom (with moonroof): 37.5 in
  • Rear headroom (with moonroof): 37.8 in
  • Front legroom: 42.4 in
  • Rear legroom: 39.2 in

2022 INFINITI Q50 vs. Lexus ES 350: Engines

Which model delivers the finely-tuned handling and explosive power that you expect from a luxury sedan? Here again, the ES 350 simply can’t keep up with the Q50! The latter’s standard engine generates nearly 30 more pound-feet of torque and is available with a 400-hp engine. The Lexus ES 350 doesn’t offer a higher-powered engine upgrade.

2022 INFINITI Q50 Engine Options

  • Standard 3.0L V6 twin-turbocharged: 300 hp | 295 lb-ft of torque
  • Available 3.0L V6 twin-turbocharged with two turbo speed sensors and dual water pumps: 400 hp | 350 lb-ft of torque

2022 Lexus ES 350 Engine Options

  • Standard 3.5L V6 Engine: 302 hp | 267 lb-ft of torque
