2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2020 BMW i8 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI Q70 vs. 2020 BMW i8

Few cars have caused as much excitement as the 2020 BMW i8. This is because this car balances exotic design with superb fuel economy and awe-inspiring power in a way that few automobiles can. But what happens when it goes up against the 2019 INFINITI Q70, a car which has long dominated the market due to its commanding appearance, royal interior, state of the art infotainment and formidable performance?

Design & Style

The Q70 is a moderately sized luxury sedan that comes in many different flavors. It has an extended wheelbase, with elegant sheet metal and a hood so masterfully sculpted that it would make Michelangelo proud. The curves within the cabin are equally graceful, with a dashboard that embraces those fortunate enough to inside. The surface materials are all premium in quality, with brushed metal and real wood that looks perfect with the right leather hue. The BMW i8 uses a design that is near-futuristic, with wing doors, buttresses in the rear and twenty-inch wheels. Passengers will be presented with an Avant-garde style inside, with a dashboard that is layered and a center stack that floats. The i8 costs six figures which means every surface is covered in only the highest quality materials that money can buy.

Technology & Safety

The BMW i8 uses a frame that is light in weight yet built with reinforced carbon which is placed on top of an aluminum chassis. The car’s battery is positioned in such a way where it will be well protected in the event of a crash. The passengers will be safeguarded by 6 airbags, frontal impact warnings, emergency automatic brakes, and Laser lights. Perks within the interior include eight-inch touch screens, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, heated/cooled seats, and premium auto. The INFINITI Q70 has received the Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, and for good reason. It has numerous countermeasures, such as cruise control that is adaptive, blind area monitoring, lane control, headlights that are adaptive, and a camera with 360-degree vision. Cabin perks include heated/cooled seats, Bose sound system with ten speakers, and a steering wheel that can be heated.


The INFINITI Q70 can be equipped with a V8, 5.6-liter engine that generates 420 horsepower. The BMW i8 uses an electric motor that can put out a maximum of 369 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Although the BMW i8 is a good looking vehicle, it is outrageously overpriced. It seats a maximum of 4, while the INFINITI Q70 seats five, and the i8’s horsepower is inferior with a very limited electric range, so the INFINITI wins without question.
