2018 INFINITI Q70 VS. 2018 JAGUAR XF | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The Jaguar XF is a spectacular vehicle that has been a hit among consumers in the U.S. The 2018 INFINITI Q70 is a luxury sedan that some have described as being a yacht on wheels. Its many amenities, exotic interior and excellent handling make it one of the best-midsized cars that money can buy. Which should you choose?

Design & Style

Each vehicle is outstanding in terms of styling. Both incorporate a sun/moon roof, power windows, power seats, temperature control and automatic door locks. The INFINITI Q70 and Jaguar XF also seat a maximum of five occupants, but the Q70 provides a bit more space for passengers at 44.4 inches versus only 41.5 for the Jaguar XF. The Q70 also provides far more exterior colors and optional packages, at a total of 13 versus only six for the Jaguar XF. For instance, INFINITI Q70 buyers have the option of colors such as Majestic White, Black Obsidian and rear Decklid Spoilers, which really allow them to customize the car to their liking.

Technology & Safety

As of the time of this writing, NHTSA crash results for the 2018 Jaguar XF haven’t yet been published, so its safety rating remains unclear. The INFINITI Q70, on the other hand, has received its rating, which is an overall 4 stars. This means that those who buy this car can be assured that it has been subjected to rigorous testing and is very safe to drive. ABS brakes and airbags for the passenger, driver and front sides all come standard.


The Jaguar XF has an 8-speed powertrain automatic while the INFINITI Q70 only has an automatic 7 speed. In terms of fuel economy, the Jaguar edges out the INFINITI at 31 mpg versus only 17 mpg. The INFINITI does, however, have a higher volume for its fuel tank, at 20 gallons versus only 17.4 gallons for the Jaguar XF. While the Jaguar uses a diesel fuel engine, the INFINITI utilizes a gasoline one. The INFINITI engine is far more powerful, at 330 horsepower at 7,000 rpm versus a paltry 180 horsepower at 4000 rpm for the Jaguar XF. Additionally, the INFINITI has six cylinders versus only 4 for the Jaguar. When it comes to pure driving performance there is really no comparison, the INFINITI outclasses the Jag by a considerable margin.

The Bottom Line

Both of these vehicles are excellent in terms of looks, handling, amenities and durability. However, the only real advantage that the Jaguar XF has on the INFINITI Q70 is the price. It can be had for just under $50,000 whereas the Q70 costs about $5,000 more. However, when you consider the higher performance, space and amenities that the INFINITI has, it’s easy to see why, so the Q70 is the better choice.
