2018 INFINITI Q70L VS. 2018 BMW 7 SERIES | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2018 BMW 7 series is the latest incarnation of a luxury line that stretches back four decades. It is the sixth generation and the latest model comes in the form of a luxury sedan that is full sized. The 2018 INFINITI Q70L is also a prestigious sedan that provides an extended wheelbase for drivers who desire maximum comfort for their backseat passengers. Which of the two is superior? Below is an in-depth comparison.

Design & Style

Both cars offer a sleek exterior that comes in a variety of colors. Some of the most popular for the BMW 7 Series are Imperial Blue, Cashmere Silver, Arctic Gray and Jet Black. The INFINITI Q70L can be purchased in colors such as Liquid Platinum, Black Obsidian, Hermosa Blue and Majestic White. Overall, the BMW surpasses the INFINITI when it comes to the full range of exterior colors which are offered, at 17 total versus only 7 for the Q70L. The BMW also has dozens of optional additions such as Black Trim Piano Finish, while the Q70L is restricted to a half dozen design options.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q70L has been subjected to a variety of NHTSA safety tests and passed with 4 out of 5 stars overall. No test results have been released for the BMW to date, so until these results are released, the Q70L has an edge. Both cars come with the standard safety features that you’d expect, such as curtain, passenger, front side and driver airbags, along with ABS brakes. The BMW and INFINITI are also evenly matched when it comes to amenities such as power windows, sun/moon roof, air conditioning and leather seats. Although each vehicle seats five people, the Q70L has a slight advantage in front legroom, with 44.4 inches versus 41.4 for the BMW 7 Series. However, the BMW has slightly more back legroom at 44.4 inches versus only 41.8 for the Q70L.


The BMW has an eight-speed automatic versus the seven-speed automatic for the Q70L. However, the engine utilized by the INFINITI is six cylinders while the BMW 7 series is restricted to four. Not much is known about the BMW’s power or torque, but all signs indicate that the INFINITI, with its 330 horsepower at seven thousand RPM, is much more powerful. The INFINITI Q70L also has a superior compression ratio and displacement. This means the Q70L edges out the BMW in terms of raw power.

The Bottom Line

When you consider the fact that the INFINITI Q70L has a proven safety rating, greater performance, amenities which for the most are equal to the BMW, this makes it the car that you should buy. But what should really cement the choice is the price tag. While the Q70L can be purchased for under $60,000, the BMW costs a whopping $97,000, which is a huge difference.
