For this latest installment of Motor Trend’s Ignition, Johnny Lieberman tests out the 2014 Lexus IS 350 and the 2014 Infiniti Q50S. He puts them through the usual track tests, including 0 to 60, 60 to 0, figure 8, and the quarter mile. After that, Lieberman takes them to the California canyon roads. How do these two cars stack up against each other on winding real-world roads?
Kicking off the episode is Lieberman commenting on the looks of the two cars. Both cars feature the same exterior paint color, similar styling, but very different grilles. Immediately we are given his opinion of the new Lexus’s styling. Harsh? Maybe.
When it comes to the tests, both cars are matched very well. They come within tenths of a second for acceleration and the quarter mile, while they tie on the figure 8. Both feature fun driving performances while on the track, but as most people don’t do a lot of track driving, it’s up to the California roads to determine the winner.
Watch the video below to see who Johnny Lieberman picks as this week’s winner as well as hear some of his hilarious commentary that isn’t completely focused on the new Lexus.
