Infiniti QX50 vs Audi Q5

One of the most important steps in your car purchasing process is doing the research. Most shoppers will take the time to compare between two or more automotive brands offering similar products. If you are on the market for a luxury crossover vehicle, you might have considered the Infiniti QX50 available for sale in our Oakville Infiniti dealership. In comparison, the 2018 Audi Q5 has similar features and differences in terms of Interior, performance and safety features. Read to discover both crossovers.

Infiniti QX50 Interior

When we talk about luxury vehicles, cabin comfort is a must! Both vehicles have a 5-seat capacity. The Infiniti QX50 was completely redesigned which gives it a strong advantage over the Q5. In fact, the Infiniti QX50 provides a visual feast for the eyes with its balance of colours and textures. The occupants will experience it with a very unique and custom feeling when entering inside because of the blend of maple wood satin finished. On the other hand, the Q5 offers a minimal design while maintaining a tidy space for all occupants.


In terms of performance, the Infiniti is offering drivers a glimpse of the future with its all-new VC-Turbo engine. It delivers up to a maximum of 280 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 RPM. Additionally, the QX50 gives the driver full control with its all-wheel drive and adaptive steering. The 2018 Audi Q5 also has a turbo engine. However, it is a little bit slower with 252 hp and 273 lb-ft. The stability control can strongly reduce the full experience that some drivers might be looking for.


Drivers and passengers will not stress enough about the importance of safety as a crucial purchasing factor. The Infiniti QX50 has one of the most advanced prevention collision system available. The vehicle will take action in order to anticipate collision when the driver backs up. In addition, the system will also send warnings to the driver if a collision is imminent. The Audi Q5 offers the basic safety features with its Pre Sense City. This technology includes pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.
