2018 INFINITI Q70L VS 2018 AUDI A6 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI Q70L VS 2018 AUDI A6

The 2018 INFINITI Q70L and 2018 Audi A6 are premium vehicles both produced by highly respected manufacturers. Each incorporates state of the art technology, has an impressive styling and exceptional performance. Having said that, which one should you buy? Making a choice isn’t easy, but a side by side comparison might help.

Design & Style

The Audi A6 has a style which is best described as being conservative. It is devoid of the many bells and whistles which are present in the INFINITI Q70L but nevertheless maintains outstanding performance. The Q70L, on the other hand, is a very fancy mid-sized sedan, which is typical of the brand. It pulls no punches when it comes to looks, both in the interior and exterior.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q70L has a smart interior, as does the Audi A6. The Audi also has an excellent powertrain, but some passengers have complained that the front seat is too snug in comparison to the INFINITI. Alternative powertrains also aren’t available. Overall, the interior of both vehicles has a pleasant look and feel. The Q70L has slightly more legroom, at 41.8 inches versus only 37.4 for the Audi A6. The INFINITI also has more space for the hips, head and shoulders.


The Audi A6 has better fuel economy, at 25 miles to the gallon versus only 18 with the INFINITI Q70L. This is within cities, but the situation doesn’t change on highways as the A6 gets 34 mpg versus 25 mpg for the INFINITI. Both cars are evenly matched when it comes to the maximum number of passengers they can carry, as both the A6 and Q70L hold a total of 5 people. The INFINITI has slightly more cargo area, and both cars have disc front as well as disc rear brakes with a 4 wheel drive ABS.

Both are equal in fuel tank capacity, at about 20 gallons, and each utilizes a state of the art rack pinion steering system. The wheels of both the Audi and INFINITI are made with aluminum and while the Audi A6 is limited to a 2.1-liter engine with 252 horsepower and 5000 rpm, the INFINITI Q70L has a 3.7-liter engine with 330 horsepower and 7000 rpm. This is a considerable difference, meaning the INFINITI has an advantage in performance.

The Bottom Line

The INFINITI Q70L and Audi A6 match each other in a number of ways, including the passenger capacity, steering system and wheel composition. They are also close in terms of price, at just over $48,000 for the INFINITI and $46,000 for the Audi. However, the INFINITI is superior both in performance, looks and interior space, which means it’s worth the extra $2,000.
