2018 INFINITI Q70 VS. 2018 BMW 5 SERIES | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


Few vehicles can match the sophistication, amenities or performance of the 2018 BMW 5 Series or the 2018 INFINITI Q70, but which is the better of the two? Choosing between them is no easy task, as they are both exceptionally stylish and classy, but a closer look under the hood allows us to see which one is the top dog.

Design & Style

Each car is sleek, providing luxury features such as front seats which are heated, seat belts which are height adjustable and advanced USB ports. However, the Q70 edges out the BMW 5 Series when it comes to space and volume for its passengers. The cabin provides one hundred and four cubic feet to be exact, along with forty-four inches for the legs (in the front) and over 50 inches of shoulder room. By comparison, the BMW 5 Series only provides ninety-nine cubic feet worth of space, with about 41 inches for legs in the front and less than fifty-six inches of shoulder room.

Technology & Safety

Both of these vehicles offer lots of safety features, but what sets them apart is affordability and how much you get for the money you spend. The INFINITI Q70 simply provides more, especially when it comes to the trim which is range-topping. Both vehicles will provide you with AC that is dual zone, cruise control which is adaptive, a door opener for your garage which is integrated, a parking assistance program, keyless entry, a collision alert when backing up and windshield wipers which automatically detect rain and activate accordingly.

Each vehicle also provides a collision warning for forwarding motion, which can literally be a lifesaving feature. However, because the asking price for the INFINITI Q70 is a few thousand dollars lower than the BMW 5 Series, you will get a better choice by purchasing it. Finally, the INFINITI has a 70,000-mile warranty for the powertrain which surpasses the 50,000-mile warranty which is offered for the BMW.


Although BMW is known as “The Ultimate Driving Machine,” when compared to the Q70 it doesn’t live up to this reputation. For instance, the Q70 sports a 3.7L V6 engine beneath its hood, which puts out 270 Ib ft in torque and 330 horsepower. Its fantastic engine is combined with a transmission which is seven speed, and up to four distinct driving modes, which make driving it a wonderful experience. It has a standard mode, which is optimal for everyday driving, while the snow and sports modes are designed for performance and frigid weather. By comparison, the BMW 5 Series is restricted to a 2.0-liter engine with 258 Ib ft torque and 248 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

No matter what specs are measured, the Q70 completely outclasses the BMW in almost every way. It is more affordable, performs better, and has many of the exact same safety and technology features.
