2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2020 Audi R8 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2020 Audi R8

The 2020 Audi R8 has a six figure price tag, spellbinding performance, and a host of luxury features. But how does it compare to the 2019 INFINITI Q70, a car which has ample power of its own, along with a very comfortable interior and state of the art infotainment?

Design & Style

The INFINITI Q70 is distinctive for its extended wheelbase, large amount of legroom and graceful curvature. The dashboard within the interior embraces those sitting in front, placing all the controls and buttons within easy reach. The materials used in the cabin are all top of the line, with natural wood, brushed metal and numerous leather hues. The seats in front are ventilated and can be adjusted ten different ways, and even the steering wheel itself is wrapped in leather. The Audi R8 is a car which slightly resembles the Bugatti Veyron. It has an oval shaped exterior and was designed to be a super car. The large blades seen in the previous generation have been removed in favor of intakes which are side mounted with contrasting colors. A honey comb style grille can be seen in front and its metallic dark shade gives it a truly menacing appearance.

Technology & Safety

It is absolutely essential for a car as fast as the Audi R8 to have numerous safety countermeasures, and in this arena it doesn’t disappoint. Drivers can expect brakes made of carbon ceramic, along with stability control, airbags for frontal impacts, side impact and knee airbags, seatbelt pretensioners and an automatic detection system which anticipates undesired vehicle intrusion and responds by using a disable ignition device that will stop the car’s engine from activating unless the right manufacturer key is used. Interior amenities include a digital display that is 12.3 inches, premium audio from Bang & Olufsen and climate control. The INFINITI Q70 comes with emergency automated brakes, motion detection, parking sensors, headlights which are adaptive, and a camera with 360 degree view. Interior perks in the Q70 include Bose audio with ten speakers, and an easy to use infotainment system.


The Q70 is INFINITI’s most powerful car and can be equipped with a V8, 5.6 liter engine that can provide a maximum of 420 horsepower. The Audi R8 answers with a V10, 5.2 liter engine that can provide up to 562 horsepower and it can reach a maximum speed of 200 miles per hour.

The Bottom Line

Although the Audi R8 has incredible performance, it comes with too many sacrifices. It costs three times as much, but seats only two, while the INFINITI Q70 seats five, making it a better vehicle for families. This combined with the fact that both essentially have the same infotainment features mean that the INFINITI Q70 wins, since it is far more versatile.
