The Genesis G70 and INFINITI Q50 are a pair of desirable luxury sedans if there ever was one. And that makes choosing between them a complicated affair. Which midsize sedan is right for you? Our comparison guide takes a look.
Premium Interior: It’s a Tie!
If luxury is your only motivator, choosing between the Genesis G70 and INFINITI Q50 is going to be especially difficult. Inside, both four-door luxury sedans are stylish and comfortable. Standard features include power-adjustable, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. Move up each sedan’s trim levels for greater opulence, with available leather upholstery and premium sound systems.
Friendly Tech Features: 2021 Genesis G70
If you’re shopping for a straightforward infotainment experience, the G70 comes highly recommended. The central touch screen is easy to use, something that can’t be underestimated when you’re trying to access apps and drive at the same time. And every G70 also comes standard with modern smartphone integration, via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The INFINITI Q50 also comes standard with a handy infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, its dual-screen setup can be difficult to master, even for a tech-savvy driver. Figuring out where each feature is located takes some time, and the setup can be distracting while driving.
MSRP Range: 2021 Genesis G70
Both luxury sedans have similar starting MSRPs: $36,000 for the G70 and $36,700 for the Q50. However, as you climb the trim levels to enjoy more and more luxury features, the Q50 ends up costing a lot more. The most luxurious version of the G70 starts at $48,200, while the Q50 can cost upwards of $57,850. And, as we’ve seen, the Q50 doesn’t exactly give you a whole lot of extra features for your money.
Warranty Coverage: 2021 Genesis G70
With the G70, your luxury cruise will last the longest. The limited powertrain warranty gives you 10 years or 100,000 miles of service, so you don’t have to worry about making expensive repairs. And every G70 trim model includes Genesis Valet Service, which means that your friendly dealer will pick up your car, deliver a rental, and return your car after service.
The INFINITI Q50 isn’t quite as generous. Its powertrain warranty lasts six years or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first. And you don’t get the timesaving concierge services included in the Genesis warranty, either.
The INFINITI Q50 is sleek and stylish, but it’s the Genesis G70 that takes luxury cruising and adds desirable warranty coverage and a thrifty price tag. And, in spite of its friendly price, the G70 manages to supply interior opulence and a smooth, powerful drive. It has all the luxury you want at a very sensible price.
