2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 AUDI A5 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q60 VS. 2018 AUDI A5

The 2018 Audi A5 has received praise for its outstanding appearance, potent engine, comfortable handling, and state of the art tech. But how does it stack up against the 2018 INFINITI Q60, a car with a fabulous shape, exceptional interior, and formidable straight line acceleration? Let’s find out which vehicle has an edge better than the other.

Design & Style

The Q60 has a commanding presence, the type of car driven by confident individuals who only demand the best. The automobile is distinctive with its chrome surrounds which encapsulate the fog lights. The beak has been pinched, with a side profile which is classically coupe. The rear consists of a deck lid that has been shortened with the lip spoiler that punctuates it. Inside, passengers can expect an opulent cabin with upholstery that will feel smooth to the touch. In comparison, the Audi A5 is sleek, with horizontal lines that move along the exterior in a manner that is holistic. The wheelbase is similar to the A4, but the roofline has a hatchback shape that works well. The interior surfaces are covered in metal, leather and wood trim.

Technology & Safety

Audi is known for the safety of its cars, and the A5 continues this legacy. Those who drive it will have peace of mind knowing that it is equipped with an array of mechanisms designed to protect them and others, such as pedestrian detection, emergency automatic brakes, and protection against rollover, driver assistance, automated high beams, and lane control which is adaptive. Inside drivers can expect Apple CarPlay, seven-inch screens, Android Auto, climate control and seats that can be power adjusted.

The INFINITI Q60 boasts many of the same safety features seen in the A5, including airbags for both passengers and drivers, airbags for rollovers, rearview camera, control for stability and traction, and warnings for rear and frontal impacts and blind spot monitoring. Inside, passengers can expect keyless ignition, dual touchscreens, Bluetooth support, and many other amenities.


What many car experts can agree is that the Q60 is built for performance. Standard models come with a turbo 4 engine that is 2 liter and capable of producing 208 horsepower with 258 pounds of torque. Those looking for maximum power can upgrade to the Red Sports edition, which has a V6 twin turbo engine capable of producing 400 horsepower. The Audi A5 is also a force to be reckoned with, as it has a 4-cylinder engine that is 2 liters and turbocharged, capable of producing 252 horsepower. However, those eagle-eyed buyers will notice that it is still no match for the Red Sports edition of the Q60.

The Bottom Line

Both of these cars are extremely well designed, so it’s the little things that decide which of them is superior. While the Audi has stellar performance, the rear seat is too tight, especially in the convertible editions, and many people dislike the overly small shift paddles for the steering wheel, and the fact that only manual is offered for the coupes. That is why most car buyers prefer the INFINITI Q60 over the Audi A5.
