2016 Infiniti Q70 vs. 2016 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Infiniti Q70 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus GS 450h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Infiniti Q70 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 450h.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 450h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Infiniti Q70, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Infiniti Q70 or the Lexus GS 450h, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Infiniti Q70 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lexus GS 450h.

Dimensions
The Infiniti Q70 is about the same width as the Lexus GS 450h. When looking at overall length, the Infiniti Q70 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 450h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti Q70 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Infiniti Q70 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 450h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti Q70 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 450h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti Q70 and the Lexus GS 450h. The Infiniti Q70 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 450h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti Q70 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Lexus GS 450h in terms of months/miles.
