View our extensive inventory | Genesis Dealership Serving WayneView our extensive inventory | Genesis Dealership Serving WayneThe 2019 Genesis G80 provides everything you'd expect from a midsize luxury sedan, including a long list of standard features, a trio of powerful engines and lots of curb appeal. And the G80 delivers all this at a price that's less than the competition. The G80 comes with many standard features that are only available as costly options on many other vehicles in its class, adding even more value at dealerships like the Genesis dealer in Wayne.

The 2019 Infiniti Q70 is a midsize luxury sedan that competes with the G80. Readers who have been thinking of buying either vehicle should read this comparison review as we examine each model to see which one comes out on top.


If price is a consideration, you'll be happy to know the 2019 Genesis G80 costs less than the 2019 Infiniti Q70. The starting manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the G80 is $42,050 at Genesis Wayne and dealerships across the country. Meanwhile, the Q70 has an MSRP that starts at $50,300. So, G80 buyers will save a considerable amount of money compared to those who buy the Q70.


The Genesis G80's standard engine produces more torque than the Infiniti Q70's base powerplant. The standard engine for the G80 is a 3.8-liter V6 that makes 311 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque. The base unit in the Q70 is a 3.7-liter V6 that generates 330 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Note that while the Q70's V6 produces more horsepower, the G80's V6 makes more torque, which means it sends more power to the wheels.

Fuel Economy

The Genesis G80's base V6 gets an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city/26 mpg highway for models with rear-wheel drive. The Q70's base V6 gets 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway with rear-wheel drive, just shy of the G80's figures. The Genesis G80 runs on regular unleaded gasoline (premium is recommended for the Genesis G80 3.3T Sport). The Q70 must run on more expensive premium gasoline.


Safety is a primary consideration when deciding which car to buy for your family. While the 2019 Infiniti Q70 received the highest score of Good in five IIHS crash tests, the 2019 Genesis G80 is one of the few vehicles to receive the organization's Top Safety Pick+ award. It picked up the top score of Good in all crash tests, received the best rating for headlights, and demonstrated it provided maximum protection for front crashes.


No automaker's warranty can hold a candle to Genesis's warranty. The G80 comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty. You'll get a year's less coverage with the Q70; Infiniti only provides a 4-year/60,000-mile basic warranty. Genesis' powertrain warranty covers the G80 for a full 4 years and 30,000 miles longer than Infiniti's warranty covers the Q70. The G80's powertrain warranty runs for 10 years or 100,000 miles, while the Q70 only 6 years or 70,000 miles. The G80's warranty comes with free scheduled maintenance for 3 years and 36,000 miles. This includes oil changes, lubrication and other scheduled maintenance items. G70 owners don't get any free scheduled maintenance.

Our Conclusion

The 2019 Genesis G80 and the Infiniti Q70 are both excellent cars. But in a side-by-side comparison that examines important categories such as price, engines, fuel economy, safety and the warranty, the Genesis G80 emerges as the clear winner.
