The horsepower of the Infiniti Q50 is by 30 hp bigger than the Volkswagen Passat B7 Variant. Because the difference is little this should not affect the vehicles performance in a noticeable way.
The Infiniti Q50 uses 4 % fewer in the combined cycle in relation to the Volkswagen Passat B7. The difference in the amount of 4 percent is not realy noticeable. Nevertheless in the long term it can generate a real savings.
Due to 25 % higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti Q50 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen. This, in turn, have positive implications for a car's acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A little difference in the amount of 1.3 s shows that the Volkswagen Passat B7 is somewhat beaten in this confrontation. In the „large family cars” class, to which the Volkswagen Passat B7 Variant 2.0 TDI CR DPF BlueMotion 140HP manual is assigned, the medium acceleration amounts to 9.9 s and is by 1 % faster than acceleration of Volkswagen’s car.
The maximum velocity of the Infiniti Q50 2.2d 170HP manual is higher in comparison to this of the Volkswagen Passat B7 Variant 2.0 TDI CR DPF BlueMotion 140HP manual which allows to cover the same distance on the highway in shorter period of time. The difference at the level of 10 percent is small and is imperceptible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
The rotational speed at which the maximum torque is produced shows us how fast an engine achieves its best efficiency with growth in rmp. The lower rmp or the wider range at which the torque has the highest value, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt earlier.
The winner of this confrontatnion in the aspect of fuel tank size is Infiniti Q50 that is able to carry by 5 liters more oil in relation to the Volkswagen Passat B7.
The wheelbase of a car means the length between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving because of more appropriate vehicle's weight distribution. Infiniti Q50 has 5 % longer wheelbase distance in relation to Volkswagen Passat B7. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the stability and steering. Hence, the mass of Infiniti should be better distributed and driving should be smoother and safer.
The Infiniti Q50 has 9 percent bigger cubic capacity than the Volkswagen Passat B7 Variant. As the difference is small, the Infiniti Q50 should accelerate slightly dynamically, of course if other paramerters are the same.
The Infiniti Q50 is 17 mm longer in comparison to the Volkswagen Passat B7 Variant 2.0 TDI CR DPF BlueMotion 140HP manual. Long cars more of passenger space and also provide plenty of trunk space. Although the Infiniti Q50 seems to be better choice for families or drivers who value soft, smooth long-distance rides that make them feel fresh and relaxed upon arriving, the Volkswagen may appeal to women as it will not make problems with parking and will have smaller turning radius.
Model release date
Because of the fact that the Volkswagen Passat B7 Variant's production began only 3 years prior to the Infiniti Q50, the distance in technology applied in both vehicles is not really huge, however, the Infiniti Q50 might have a bit more new solutions applied in it.
