2017 Nissan Maxima vs 2017 Infiniti Q50

There are actually very few midsize sedans that compete more with luxury-end sedans than anything else but the Nissan Maxima is one of them. Without the luxury name brand, the Maxima offers buyers an exciting drive with refined styling. Take a look at this 2017 Nissan Maxima vs 2017 Infiniti Q50 comparison to see how these two midsize sedans compare in terms of performance, fuel economy, features and more.

All Maxima models are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 300 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque. While the Maxima only has this one engine option the 2017 Infiniti Q50 offers more options but its base engine is a 2.0-liter I4 turbocharged engine with 200 horsepower. Customers have to opt for a higher-end Q50 model to get comparable horsepower to the Maxima's standard.
