2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2019 Jaguar I-Pace | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2019 Jaguar I-Pace

The 2019 INFINITI Q70 is considered by many to be the king of luxury sedans. Its timeless style, easy to use infotainment system, breathtaking power and opulence is overwhelmingly superior to many of its contemporaries. However, one car which has emerged on the scene to contest it is the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace, a near-futuristic car that has a powertrain that has 100% electric, a range of 240 miles and a spacious and elegant interior. Which one wins?

Design & Style

Stylistically, the I-Pace is similar to other Jaguar models due to its flowing organic lines. However, in this case the lines are used to conceal the technical genius beneath the hood. Both the front haunches and grille are covered with prominent curvature that is similar to the D-Type. The side profile is wavy, with lines that fall and rise along the dimensions which are compact. Within the cabin, the designers chose a minimalist style, which is futuristic but not overly so. A standard-gauge display has been put in close proximity to a touchscreen that is 12.3 inches. The INFINITI Q70 uses lots of swoopy sheet metal, which results in a hood that is masterfully sculpted with headlights that are simply elegant. The external curvature is graceful and dignified, giving the sedan a sophisticated and regal appearance. The material within the cabin is premium as always, with natural wood, brushed metal and a wide range of leather hues.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI Q70 has been given the prestigious Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, something few cars will ever achieve. Its frontal crash prevention was found to be superior, and it has a Pro-Active Package which gives drivers access to all sorts of key features, such as automated emergency brakes, cruise control that is adaptive, lane control, monitoring for blind sports and a camera with a 360-degree view. Inside, passengers will be treated to seats that can be heated/cooled, a Bose sound system with ten speakers, parking sensors and even a steering wheel that can be heated. The batteries within the Jaguar I-Pace are well reinforced, as is the outer frame. It has a camera for the rearview, lane control, LED lights and the ability to detect pedestrians automatically.


The Jaguar uses a motor that is twin electric and capable of generating the equivalent of 394 horsepower (or 294 kilowatts) with 512 pounds of torque. The batteries are heavy, about 1/3 of the car’s weight, but they allow the vehicle to cruise from zero to sixty in just under 5 seconds. The INFINITI Q70 can be equipped with a V8, 5.6-liter engine that gives it a mammoth 420 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Both the QX50 and I-Pace impress with their looks, handling, safety tech and amenities.  Unfortunately for the I-Pace, its reliability will always be in question given that it uses batteries that come in just one size, and the Q70 surpasses it in performance, so the INFINITI wins.
