2018 INFINITI Q70 VS. 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ E CLASS | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2018 Mercedes Benz E Class and the 2018 INFINITI Q70 are both highly respected vehicles that offer a ton of benefits to those lucky enough to own them, with outstanding safety features, performance, and interior amenities. For those planning to buy a new vehicle this year, choosing between the two can be tough until you read the detailed analysis below.

Design & Style

The INFINITI Q70 completely and utterly outclasses the Mercedes Benz E Class in terms of external appearance. While the INFINITI has well-defined curves and a sporty, near future look, the Mercedes E Class, by comparison, resembles a 1990s style station wagon, really not sure what the designers at Mercedes were thinking. The interior of the INFINITI is just as curvy as the exterior, offering lots of space and an amazing infotainment system. While the exterior of the Mercedes E Class leaves a lot to be desired, once you sit inside you will be greeted to a cabin that is stylish with doors that are elegant.

Technology & Safety

The Mercedes E Class has better fuel economy than the INFINITI Q70, at 22 mpg versus 18 mpg. Although both vehicles are described as being mid-sized, the INFINITI offers more space to its passengers, both for front headroom and hips and shoulders. Both vehicles hold the same number of passengers, which is a maximum of five. The INFINITI Q70 also provides more space in the trunk, at 14.9 ft versus only 13.1 ft for the Mercedes, which is actually surprising giving its station wagon style appearance.


Each vehicle utilizes rack pinion steering with a four-wheel anti-brake system, along with aluminum wheels. While the Mercedes Benz E class comes equipped with an Intercooled Premium Turbo Unleaded I-4 engine, the INFINITI Q70 has a V6 Premium Unleaded engine, which gives it 330 horsepower at 7000 rpm versus only 241 horsepower @ 5500 rpm for the Mercedes Benz E Class. So in terms of performance the INFINITI Q70 is substantially superior to the Mercedes.

The Bottom Line

Although these two cars are close in a number of areas, the INFINITI Q70 outperforms the Mercedes Benz E Class in the areas that matter most, which are looks and performance. What is even more surprising is that despite lagging behind in these areas, the Mercedes actually costs more! Therefore, when you take into consideration the greater attributes of the Q70, it really doesn’t make much sense to shell out extra for a vehicle that will perform less and is largely devoid of looks which will turn heads. Therefore the INFINITI is the clear winner.
