Performance and Efficiency

The great thing about the BMW 3 Series and INFINITI Q50 is that they're both very powerful vehicles that are sure to give you that high-adrenaline drive that you're after. In fact, they both have an available 3.0L V6 engine that propels you forward with plenty of speed right out of the gate.

Both vehicles also give you the option of equipping your sedan with rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). If you want to maximize traction control in changing roadway conditions, then you might like AWD. On the other hand, if you prefer to get a higher fuel efficiency, you may prefer to stick with standard RWD.

Speaking of efficiency, the BMW is overall a much more efficient car than the INFINITI. Take a look at the table below to see their EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings when equipped with their standard engine and RWD:


BMW 3 Series


EPA-estimated city MPG

26 MPG

20 MPG

EPA-estimated highway MPG

36 MPG

29 MPG

Due to its lower fuel economy, drivers in the INFINITI may need to stop to fill up their tank more often than those in the BMW.
