The sport sedan is a crowded category with manufacturers trying to create a model that is as exciting to look at and drive as it is reliable and comfortable. Two of the top models in this category are the 2020 INFINITI Q50 and the Genesis G70. How do they compare side by side?
Both of these models are rear wheel drive, which enhances their performance. However, the 2020 INFINITI Q50 offers significant more power with a 3.0L V6 for the base trim compared to an I-4 with the G70. What is interesting to note is that while the INFINITI offers 300 horsepower over the 252 horsepower of the G70, both are similar in efficiency. The Q50 comes in at 23 combined MPG compared to 25 MPG for the Genesis model. To help you bypass even more fuel stations, the INFINITI model includes a 20-gallon tank over the almost 16-gallon tank in the Genesis.
Get comfortable in either sedan with plenty of passenger and cargo space; however, the Q50 offers more passenger volume at 101 cubic feet over 94 cubic feet for the Genesis. This translates into almost two inches more of legroom in the front as well as slightly more headroom and shoulder room. Rear passengers will also appreciate the extra legroom, headroom, and shoulder room. Bring more luggage or equipment along with three extra cargo volume on the INFINITI.
Both manufacturers understand the importance of utilizing modern technology on these models. Bluetooth, a touchscreen, and voice recognition are standard on all trims for both models. Traditionalists will appreciate the CD player and MP3 compatibility the 2020 INFINITI Q50 includes across trims. Upgrade to the top trim on either model, and you’ll notice even more tech features. Both sedans improve their sound system with more speakers as the INFINITI comes up with 16 speakers and a premium amplifier.
Comfort and Convenience
Car buyers will quickly discover both of these sedans are loaded with practical and fun features. Chrome trim adds to the sophisticated image of the models while the 2020 INFINITI Q50 adds fog lights to the base trim for functionality and style. Heated mirrors are standard on both models while the Q50 also makes rain-sensing windshield wipers standard while they remain an option for the Genesis. For the top trim, the INFINITI makes parking assistance standard while it remains an option for the G70. Both also include a sunroof to add to the sporty image. Enjoy greater stability with a double wishbone front suspension for the Q50 over a strut suspension with the Genesis model. On the highest trim, you get a sport suspension for both makes as well as an anti-roll bar for additional safety.
