2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2019 Audi A8 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2019 Audi A8

The 2019 Audi A8 is a high society vehicle with a price tag approaching six figures. This is due to its luxurious interior, enhanced powertrain, copious amounts of space and riding experience. But how does it stack up to the INFINITI Q70, a car many experts consider the best in its class due to its powerful engines, gorgeous exterior, uncompromising build quality and sophisticated infotainment?

Design & Style

The Q70 has an extended wheelbase, which results in greater legroom especially in the rear. The leather upholstery feels wonderful when pressed against the skin, and because the seats can be cooled, they won’t become too hot during summer, which is a common problem in lower-end vehicles. The exterior of the Q70 is masterfully sculpted, giving it a shape that commands respect at first sight. The Audi A8 is designed with multiple high-end materials, like magnesium, aluminum, and carbon fiber that are reinforced to reduce weight without compromising strength. The exterior is chiseled, with sharp lines and a grille in front that is six-sided. Inside, illumination is provided by a theater styled lighting system that is activated whenever the vehicle is unlocked, with surfaces covered in leather, brushed aluminum and wood.

Technology & Safety

The Audi A8 is rich in safety tech that is active. Examples of this include parking sensors in the rear, frontal impact notifications, high beams that are automated, and of course, a large assortment of airbags. It also has Driver Assist, which gives greater control over steering and brakes, while alerting drivers to cross traffic. Inside, drivers will enjoy telescopic steering, air suspension that adaptive, touchscreens that are 8.6 inches, a panoramic moon roof and satellite radio. The INFINITI Q70 has been given a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, an accolade that few cars achieve, due to its many safety countermeasures such as adaptive headlights, lane control, blind area monitoring, a camera with a 360-degree view and motion detection, and parking sensors. Passengers will be treated to ventilated seats that can be power adjusted ten ways, a Bose sound system, infotainment and Luxe trim.


The INFINITI Q70 is equipped with a V6, 3.7-liter engine that can produce 330 horsepower. The Audi A8 is also equipped with a V6, that is 3 liter and capable of producing 330 horsepower with 369 pounds of torque, enabling it to go from zero to sixty in under six seconds.

The Bottom Line

Both of these vehicles are classy, expensive, and prestigious to own. Although they are virtually tied when it comes to base performance, the Audi A8 is limited to a single-engine, and the styling is a bit bland when compared to the INFINITI, so the Q70 wins.
