Which Sedan Is Better for You?
Select a category below to learn more about how the INFINITI Q50 compares to the Lexus ES 350.

When you shop for a luxurious sedan, you’re expecting top-notch features and performance. You want to hear the engine roar and feel the power thrumming beneath your feet. While both models are impressive, only one can come out on top.

Heart-Pumping Performance

Let’s be honest—both the 2022 INFINITI Q50 and the Lexus ES 350 have performance covered.

Both models’ base engines can output at least 300 horsepower, an impressive figure that’s sure to make the hair on the back of your neck stand tall.

Take the Power Up a Notch

However, the INFINITI can be equipped with an additional 3.0-liter engine option that increases the Q50’s output to the following:

  • 400 horsepower
  • 350 lb-ft of torque

Unfortunately, the Lexus ES 350 can only be equipped with one engine. While it’s powerful in its own right, you’ll be able to reach quicker acceleration and new heights with the Q50’s optional engine.


Luxury sedans are synonymous with posh interiors that make your comfort a top priority. Fortunately, both the INFINITI Q50 and the Lexus ES 350 excel in this department.

Elevated Cabin Design

You’ll find leather-appointed seats in the Q50 and perforated NuLuxe® seats in the Lexus. What’s the difference? You’ll get to experience genuine leather in the INFINITI.

The base seating material in the Lexus is leatherette. Despite this difference, you can still upgrade the cabin in either model with available quilted semi-aniline leather-appointed seats.


Both models want to make sure you'll experience ultimate convenience before you even get in the car. They do this by equipping smart key systems—the Q50’s INFINITI Intelligent Key and the Lexus’s SmartAccess.

Even when you get in the cabin, you’ll be able to sink into your preferred climate with Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control systems in either ride.


From 15-minute commutes across town to hour-long road trips, every ride can be enhanced by top-notch technology features. In these luxurious models, you’ll easily have all the entertainment and convenience you could want.

Your Advanced Technology Interface

As you’re sitting at the helm of the 2022 INFINITI Q50 or the Lexus ES 350, you’ll notice impressive technology before you. In either model, you’ll have an 8-inch central display for your infotainment.

However, this is just the starting point for the INFINITI. Below its central display, there’s a 7-inch color display used for vehicle information. Unfortunately, you won’t find an additional screen like this on the Lexus.


What you will find on both models is standard smartphone integration, including:

  • Bluetooth®
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™

While you can ask your chosen model to play your favorite song or start your next podcast episode, your listening experience will be different depending on the vehicle. The Q50 features the 16-speaker Bose® Performance Series Audio system, while the ES 350 equips a 10-speaker system.

So, if you’d prefer to listen to the next chapter of your audiobook, your throwback playlist, or your favorite news station with the same crispness of a live performance, the Q50 may be your best option.

Your Ride Revealed

When you pit the 2022 INFINITI Q50 and the Lexus ES 350 against each other, they put up a strong fight. However, thanks to its additional engine, standard premium seating, and bountiful speakers, we believe the Q50 is perfect for your need for speed.
