2019 INFINITI Q50 vs. Its Competition

2019 Infiniti Q50
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Among luxury compact sedans, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class gets our nod for luxury and style, although it now costs more than $42,000 for a base version.

The new BMW 3-Series is just as pricey, although its tech is updated to run with the likes of Audi and Volvo.

The Lexus IS is aged, but fun to drive in F Sport trims.

For true technophiles, the Audi A4 offers a suite of gee-whiz features and a stellar digital instrument cluster.
