2019 Audi A3 vs. 2019 Infiniti Q50

As far as luxury vehicles are concerned, Audi and Infiniti are among the brands that get considered by a lot of buyers. This is not a surprise since both manufacturers have plenty of luxurious features to offer for their vehicles. The 2019 Audi A3 and the 2019 Infiniti Q50 are great cars if you are looking forward to owning a luxurious car without going overboard on your budget. Her is a comparison to help you decide on which one you should get. 

Design & Style

The 2019 Audi A3 is designed to look athletic and aggressive. Its sharp Singleframe grille and full LED headlights look distinct even from afar. As much as it is impressive on the outside, the A3 has so much to offer inside its cabin. The leather surfaces feel premium to touch and the driver's comfort is prioritized with the 4-way power lumbar adjustable seat.

Now the Infiniti Q50 looks tame and reserved based on its simple exterior design. Inside, however, is a different story. There is meticulous attention to detail with its contrast stitching and Japanese-inspired Kacchu Aluminum trim.

Technology & Safety

For its technology, the A3 has the new Audi virtual cockpit infotainment system. It is essentially controlled by a 12.3-inch display that may be customized to access the audio-navigation systems. With the addition of the Audi pre sense basic and pre sense front, the Audi A3 is guaranteed to be safe even during impending collisions. It automatically alerts the driver via visual and acoustic warnings before an accident happens.

The infotainment system of the Infiniti Q50 is not user-friendly. It does have a handy permanent navigation screen that is intuitive. Its driver aids are also consistent and are not obtrusive.


In terms of performance, the Audi A3 is very capable with its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The 184 hp and 222 lb-ft of torque are enough to get the car speeding at 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds. The natural-feeling for its brakes and handling is great when driving around town. It is also light and feels athletic when driving in curves and winding roads.

The 2.0-liter engine of the Infiniti Q50 delivers 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Although it is precise and feels light to handle at low speeds, the Q50 can get inconsistent when driving on twisty roads.

The Bottom Line

When buying a luxury vehicle, you need to consider having one that does not only perform but also looks stylish. This makes the 2019 Audi A3 the better choice than the 2019 Infiniti Q50. The new A3 oozes with style both inside and out. Its technology features are also more advanced compared to that of the Q50. All in all, the Audi A3 is a great-performing car that looks and feels luxurious.
