2023 Ford Mustang vs. 2023 INFINITI Q50
The 2023 Ford Mustang is the latest in a long line of American muscle cars, with incredible looks and performance. But how does it compare to the 2023 INFINITI Q50, a car praised for its fabulous appearance, shifting 7 speed automatic, and standardized turbo engine?
Design & Style
The Q50 is a sports sedan with an eye catching appearance and the ability to seat 5. Its updates for this year have been light, and consist of the Saddle Brown upholstery being made available on introductory Luxe models, as well as an illuminated emblem for the Sensory trim. INFINITI is also offering 3 years’ worth of maintenance free of charge for first time buyers.
Despite being in existence for more than half a century, the Mustang has continually evolved to become more sophisticated. Buyers have the option of an inline 4 engine that is turbocharged or a V8 for even greater performance. The interior is exceptionally ergonomic, with bigger back seats and improved external visibility in comparison to previous generations. As with the Q50, its updates for this year have been light, other than the addition of an S550 chassis with a fresh appearance, greater power and more cabin gadgets.
Technology & Safety
Ford has implemented a number of driver assistance features into the latest Mustang. These include emergency automated brakes, lane management, frontal impact alerts, notifications for cross traffic in the rear and blind area monitoring. Luxuries inside the cabin include wifi, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, climate control and powered leather seats.
The INFINITI Q50 comes with the same driver assistance functions as the Mustang, including lane management, emergency automated brakes, frontal impact alerts, lane management and blind area monitoring. Its cabin luxuries consist of wifi, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, remote start, heated steering and powered seats.
The most powerful INFINITI Q50 is the Red Sport, which can generate 400 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in about five seconds, with a maximum top speed of 150 mph. Irrespective of its engine output, the shifts are hardly detectable, even during circumstances when the driver activates the gear change with its paddle shifters that are steering mounted. Those that purchase the Ford Mustang GT will get a V8 engine that can generate 450 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in 4.4 seconds, with a maximum top speed of 163 mph.
The Bottom Line
Despite the fact that both cars seat the same number of passengers and offer similar safety features, the Ford Mustang has an edge in performance and would beat the Q50 in a race. And those who’ve test driven the Q50 with nineteen inch wheels have reported a harsh, sometimes jittery riding experience, and it doesn’t help that INFINITI is demanding a higher asking price despite the vehicle being inferior to the Ford, and this makes the Mustang the winner.
