BMW vs INFINITI Vehicle Lineup

When you're shopping for your next luxury vehicle, you'll want to make sure you drive off the lot in a car or SUV that matches your lifestyle just right. Having a diverse inventory to choose from is the key to finding that vehicle.

That's why we love that both BMW and INFINITI offer lineups with a variety of body styles, including sedans like the BMW 3 Series or the INFINITI Q50, coupes like the BMW 2 Series or the INFINITI Q60, and SUVs like the BMW X3 or the INFINITI QX60.

While both brands have plenty of styles to choose from, when you look at what they offer as a whole, a pattern starts to emerge:

As you can no doubt tell, BMW offers more options overall. So, if you're looking to have a lot of choices to ensure you'll find that perfect ride, you may have more luck with the BMW inventory than with INFINITI.

Luxury Interior Features

When you find a luxury vehicle that you like in the BMW or the INFINITI lineup, you'll want to open that front door and take the wheel right away. When you do, you'll find both brands live up to their reputations by providing a luxury, first-class cabin where you can relax after a long day at the office. Both include available features like:

  • Premium seating materials
  • Classic wood inlays and accents
  • Touchscreen infotainment systems
  • Apple CarPlay® smartphone integration

BMW and INFINITI vehicles also often feature heated front seats that can soothe sore muscles as you drive. For even more comfort, some BMW vehicles also include massaging seats that make every day feel like a spa day.

Unfortunately, INFINITI vehicles don't offer this extra relaxing feature.

Powerful Performance of BMW and INFINITI Vehicles

You'll want your next luxury car to go the distance, and with the performance features you'll get with a BMW or INFINITI vehicle, practically nothing will stand in your way. Both manufacturers feature turbocharged engines as well as available all-wheel drive (AWD) sedans that can keep you driving with confidence on rainy highways and dirt roads as well as on sunny streets.

Still, if you want a really energetic kick of power, you may be more likely to get what you're looking for with a BMW. You can see that clearly when you compare the highest horsepower engines for two comparable SUVs: the BMW X5 and the INFINITI QX50

As you can tell, even with comparable models, the BMW M Series performance line offers far more power that INFINITI, unfortunately, doesn't seem to be able to match.
