Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis G70 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the INFINITI Q50 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The INFINITI Q50 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Genesis G70.

Convenience
With the INFINITI Q50 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Genesis G70, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Genesis G70 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the INFINITI Q50. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis G70 and the INFINITI Q50 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis G70 is a little wider than the INFINITI Q50, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Genesis G70 is slightly shorter than the INFINITI Q50, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Genesis G70 has a larger turning radius than the INFINITI Q50, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G70 is somewhat more powerful than the INFINITI Q50.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G70 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the INFINITI Q50.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G70 and the INFINITI Q50. The Genesis G70 has significantly less cargo room than the INFINITI Q50, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Genesis G70 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the INFINITI Q50 in terms of months/miles.
