2018 INFINITI Q70 VS. 2018 BMW 340 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q70 VS. 2018 BMW 340

The INFINITI 2018 Q70 and BMW 340 are both sedans which are midsized and which appeal to many types of drivers. Both provide sufficient room for families, while not sacrificing performance and handling. Therefore, those trying to decide between the two may find the process to be challenging, but below is an in-depth analysis which will make your selection easier.

Design & Style

Both of these vehicles are very classy, but the INFINITI Q70 really stands out with its superbly crafted exterior. The interior is also awe-inspiring; with those lucky enough to test drive it describing the experience as being akin to sitting in a limousine. The BMW 340 also has an impressive appearance but just doesn’t have the same pizazz as the Q70. For instance, while the BMW is limited to two trim levels, with the Q70, you will get twice as much.

Technology & Safety

Each of these cars comes with state of the art equipment and safety features. They’ve got touchscreens, navigational systems that make finding locations a breeze and surround sound systems which will bring pleasure to your ears. However, the 360-degree view offered by the Q70 is very impressive, as is its object detection system. The BMW offers many of the same features, along with voice activation so there is no clear cut winner in this department.


While the INFINITI brand is better known for its luxury amenities and style than its performance, it surprised many to learn that it actually surpasses the BMW 340 slightly in handling and acceleration. This is largely due to the engine. While the BMW is restricted to an I6 320 horsepower 3-liter engine, the INFINITI Q70 utilizes a 3.7 liter V6 with 330 horsepower. This gives the Q70 an edge in performance, albeit a slight one.

The Bottom Line

Fundamentally speaking, both the 2018 Q70 and BMW 340 are great cars. They both look good, feel good to drive, and provide great value for the money. The one area where the BMW has a slight edge is the price, at just under $49,000 versus a little over $50,000 for the INFINITI. However, many of those searching for a new luxury car won’t care much about this small price difference, as they place greater importance on what the car has under the hood. When you consider the fact that the Q70 looks and performs better than the BMW 340, many people will be willing to pay extra for it. So though it was close, the INFINITI is the clear winner here.
