G80 vs Q70: Performance Specs

The G80 and Q70 are powered by some incredibly robust engines-you'll have no problem finding thrills with either of these rides. Both offer available V8 engines that generate up to 420 horsepower. You'll find that more than enough for a dynamic drive wherever you choose to go.

If you're planning on road trips and fuel economy is a concern, the base V6 engines will help you go farther on less fuel. However, the G80 has a slight advantage here: Its base V6 gets an EPA-estimated 19 city and 27 highway MPG. Meanwhile, the base Q70 falls a bit short, with just an EPA-estimated 18 city and 25 highway MPG.

Driver-Assist & Safety Features

In the Genesis G80, you'll find standard safety features in spades. You'll find features like Smart Cruise Control (to help you keep a preset distance from the car ahead of you), Lane Keep Assist (to help keep you from drifting), and Forward Collision Warning (to help you avoid frontal collisions) in every G80.

While these same features are available in the Q70, you won't find them at every trim level. To enjoy the benefits of these and a few other driver-assist technologies, you'll need to upgrade beyond the base trim in the INFINITI car.

One available feature both vehicles offer? Adaptive LED headlamps. These lights will turn in the direction of the steering wheel to give you a closer look at what's coming up around corners. With this sneak peek, you'll have more time to respond to anything coming your way.

Top-Notch Technology Features

The center consoles of the G80 and Q70 are bedecked with plenty of technology to make your ride more convenient. Infotainment systems for both cars come with 8-inch touchscreens and standard navigation, so you can enjoy the benefits of voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions to any destination.

However, the G80 has a longer list of features than the Q70. While the Genesis model includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ standard, neither feature is even available in the Q70. This puts the INFINITI car at a major disadvantage when it comes to pairing your phone with the car and using your favorite apps on the go.
