2019 Audi A6 vs. 2019 Infiniti Q70

A midsize luxury sedan is a practical choice if you are looking for a car that can fit a small family plus a handful of luggage or other bulky things. Most cars in this class have spacious cabins that are made with high-quality materials to ensure a comfortable ride. Among the top-rated midsize luxury sedans is the 2019 Audi A6. Its sporty handling and comfort features make it an impressive vehicle that is difficult to beat.

For a midsize sedan equipped with a V8 engine, the 2019 Infiniti Q70 is a promising vehicle. Let us compare it against the A6 to see if its recent updates can keep up with one of the best.

Design & Style

The 2019 Audi A6 has a subdued styling. It has a wider but lower grille and features subtle sculpting along its body lines. For its interior, however, the changes are more pronounced. There's contrast stitching on the dashboard, changeable interior ambient lighting, and plenty of both headroom and legroom for the passengers.

The Q70 has a delightful exterior with its graceful curves and sculpted hood. The interior is also nice with upscale materials for the cabin details. It is noticeable though that the layout and styling look dated and can do better to match against its competition.

Technology & Safety

The A6 has an astonishing combination of the impressive infotainment system and a reliable suite of driver aids. Audi is recognized as a leader in car technology and it shows on the latest audio and navigation systems of the A6. The abundance of latest safety features is also remarkable and this further makes the A6 standout.

The lack of advanced tech features is the weakest point of the Q70. Its infotainment simply did not change throughout the years. The touchscreen display features low-resolution graphics. Aside from the disappointing infotainment system, it also doesn't have the latest tech for its safety aids.


The A6 has a powerful V6 engine that produces 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This makes it one of the quickest in its class as it can speed up from 0-60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. The strong pedal response makes braking excellent. It also needs only a light effort to center the car even with its size.

You can choose between a V6 or a V8 engine for the Q70. For its V6 engine, it can deliver 330 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The V8, on the other hand, can deliver as much as 420 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque. Both engines can make the Q70 accelerate effortlessly. Its braking system is expertly calibrated to feel reassuringly firm and responsive.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Infiniti Q70 has an impressive road performance because of its powerful engine. If you are going to look beyond its performance, it becomes uninspiring. The lack of new technology features to offer will make you question why it is considered as a luxury vehicle. As for the 2019 Audi A6, it is the total representation of a luxury midsize sedan. It is equipped with great technology, stylish, and has a solid driving performance.
