Advanced Technology

2020 BMW 5 Series Technology FeaturesWith the ability to travel longer thanks to the comfort features, there’s no need to disconnect from the digital world. Instead, sync your smartphone to your multimedia features for on-the-go digital streaming. Again, you’ll find similar features in the sedans, but when comparing the BMW 5 Series vs. INFINITI Q50, there’s really no competition.

The BWM 5 Series comes standard with a 10.25-inch center touchscreen display, while the INFINITI Q50 comes with two smaller screens: an 8-inch upper screen and a 7-inch lower screen. Although the Q50 has two multimedia screens, the phrase “less is more” applies here.

With the 5 Series, all your information is in one handy place. With the Q50, on the other hand, you’ll have to shift your eyes from one screen to another since your information is divided between the two.

More is always better when it comes to sound, though. That’s why your BMW 5 Series comes standard with 12 speakers, while the INFINITI Q50 only comes with six speakers. In the BMW 5 Series, everyone will be treated to crystal-clear audio.

BMW 5 Series vs INFINITI Q50: The Verdict

While at first glance the BMW 5 Series and the INFINITI Q50 appear to be similar vehicles with similar features, our BMW 5 Series vs. INFINITI Q50 review proves otherwise. When you’re looking to upgrade your Tampa and South Tampa travels with premium comfort, performance, and technology, you’ll only truly get this with the BMW 5 Series.
