Compare the 2016 Infiniti Q50 Standard Features
Wisconsin drivers should have high expectations of any sedan bearing a “luxury” label, and we think the 2016 Infiniti Q50 standard features would disappoint many luxury car shoppers. While many drivers have come to expect Acura to define the affordable luxury vehicle, the fact is that many Acura models have more to offer than their competitors when it comes to amenities, and that includes the Infiniti Q50.
We compared the features of this Infiniti to the 2016 Acura TLX to give you an idea of what your other options are when shopping for a new luxury car in 2016.
Technology and Comfort Features
There are two main types of features that many drivers look for when shopping for that new luxury sedan: high-tech gadgets and modern comfort features. Both the TLX and the Q50 have a similar range of connectivity features, like Bluetooth and a touchscreen (though the 2016 Infiniti Q50 standard features won’t include Acura exclusives like the AcuraLink telematics system).
Where the TLX really shines is its standard comfort and convenience features; each of these comes on the Acura model but requires an upgrade or is unavailable on the Infiniti:
- Noise and sound cancellation to deliver a serene ride
- Power moonroof for fresh air and sunlight on a nice spring or summer day
- Heated front seating to combat those fierce Wisconsin winters
- Paddle shifters for convenient gear changes with just the flick of a wrist
Now, you might expect the Acura to cost more, since it offers a handful of features the Infiniti doesn’t, but Acura is known for its value as a luxury brand:
- The 2016 Acura TLX 2.4 is priced at $31,695 (MSRP).*
- 2016 Infiniti Q50 models have a base price of $33,950 (MSRP).

Test Drive an Acura
The TLX is only in its second year and is already making waves. Let us show you why we think it’s the sport sedan for Wisconsin drivers with a test drive. It has more going for it than beating the 2016 Infiniti Q50 standard features, after all.
