2018 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C

The 2018 INFINITI Q70 takes a warm approach to luxury which has left most of its competition in the dust. Its outer curves, opulent interior and infotainment system must be experienced first-hand to be truly appreciated. However, it faces a true rival in the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C. Its stunning appearance combined with its superb performance and exhaust note makes it desired by many. Which of them should you purchase?

Design & Style

In terms of design, the Alfa Romeo 4C is best described as being sexy, well balanced and light. While it is certainly impractical for daily driving, its performance is outstanding. It has a front fascia which is combined with yellow stitching and vents made of carbon fiber, and its lower stance is menacing. Lines extend from the grille in front which is triangular shaped, and the manual steering is excellent at high speed. The INFINITI Q70 has a moderately sized interior with more space than the Alfa Romeo, with the option to use three different engines. The control system within has been structured in a way that is most convenient for drivers, with top of the line trim and premium leather covering most surfaces.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q70 has an excellent scorecard when it comes to protecting its passengers. At lower speeds it can avoid crashes completely, and is bundled with an assortment of safety countermeasures which include parking sensors, headlights which are adaptive, lane control, blind area monitoring, and automatic emergency brakes. Within the cabin passengers can look forward to keyless ignition, eight inch touchscreens, Bluetooth support, multi zone climate control, and heated seats which can be adjusted.

The Alfa Romeo 4C is built for speed and does not cut corners when it comes to safety. Drivers can expect dual airbags in front, as well as airbags on the sides and for the knees. It offers assistance for hills, rear parking, but is lacking when it comes to active safety features. Inside, drivers will have access to an instrument cluster which is digitized with telemetry, along with satellite radio, USB ports, cloth seats and air conditioning.


Alfa Romeo 4C uses a structure made of carbon fiber which means that it is far lighter than many of its contemporaries, including the Porsche Boxster, Jaguar F Type and Chevrolet Corvette. It houses a turbo 4 engine capable of producing 237 horsepower with 258 pound of torque, and can from zero to sixty in about five seconds. The INFINITI Q70 comes with a standard V6, 3.7 liter engine that can produce 330 horsepower, with the option to upgrade to a V8.

The Bottom Line

The Alfa Romeo 4C is good looking and carries a high price tag, but unfortunately everything was sacrificed for appearance. It is not as comfortable as the Q70, and doesn’t surpass it in performance, so the INFINITI wins.
