Drive Home in the New QX50 Today!

If you’re in the market for a new luxury crossover, then the 2016 INFINITI QX50 should be at the top of your wish list. It offers power and comfort in spades, and it outclasses the competition when you compare it to its peers. To show you the advantages that it has over the competition, INFINITI of Elk Grove has put together a comparison between the 2016 INFINITI QX50 vs 2016 Audi Q5 near Roseville, CA.

When you hit the gas, you want to have a robust response. When you’re behind the wheel of the INFINITI QX50, you’ll get a rush of adrenaline when you accelerate on I-80. It comes standard with a 3.7L V6 engine that roars to life with 325 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque so you’re never lacking for raw power. By comparison, the Audi Q5 is limited to a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. It won’t be able to keep up with the QX50, as it offers just 220 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Even if you spend a little more money and upgrade the Q5 to a supercharged 3.0L V6 powerhouse, you still can’t match the power of the QX50 – Audi’s available V6 engine only has 272 horsepower. And while the Audi Q5 only offers you AWD drive, the INFINITI QX50 gives you the option between AWD and RWD, so you can choose what best fits your family’s needs.

The comparison between the 2016 INFINITI QX50 vs 2016 Audi Q5 near Roseville, CA, continues as we move to the interior of these respective vehicles. When it comes to capability and luxury, the 2016 INFINITI QX50 continues to excel. For those nights when the temperatures drop, the QX50 has heated front seats to help fight off the chill. If you’re looking to let in the brilliant California sunshine, the QX50 has a standard moonroof as well. Neither of those features come standard on the Audi Q5, so you won’t have the same level of luxury. For when you need to fill up your vehicle after a day of shopping at Westfield Galleria at Roseville, the QX50 has power-folding second-row seats to open up more cargo space1 – the Audi Q5 doesn’t have power-folding seats, which could make filling your interior much more of a hassle. To make sure that your passengers have enough room as well, the 2016 QX50 gives you more than three extra inches of front-row legroom over the 2016 Q5.
