2021 INFINITI QX50 vs 2021 Audi Q5

Serving Novi, MI

As premium compact crossovers, the 2021 INFINITI QX50 and the 2021 Audi Q5 are frequently compared by local auto shoppers. An initial review shows you that the base price for the QX50 is notably more affordable than the Audi Q5. Does the Audi Q5’s capabilities and features support this higher price?


The 2021 QX50 has a dominant yet sultry façade defined by well-defined curves and chrome accents from the front to the rear. The nose has a distinctive personality, with INFINITI’s grille flanked by stunning, angled LED headlights. The Audi Q5, on the other hand, has a tall stance with a rounded profile. It lacks the curvy definition that decorates the QX50’s exterior surfaces. Also, it has relatively small headlights with sharp corners.


The modern appeal of the QX50 extends across its two-row cabin. Notably, premium leather seats and stacked display screens, a three-prong grille, and rolling accents throughout the cabin highlight its style. Some equipment includes heated seats, a Bose sound system, mounted controls on the heated steering wheel, accent stitching, a navigation system, and more. The Audi Q5’s interior has a bulkier design through the dashboard. For example, the center stack holds a top-mounted display screen, a long series of air vents, and controls for the sound system and climate management system from top to bottom.


The 2.0-liter VC Turbo I-4 engine in the QX50 produces 268 horsepower. Drive mode selection, a continuously variable transmission, and available all-wheel drive also influence the QX50’s capabilities. The 2021 Audi Q5’s primary engine is a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter powertrain. It is available with a seven-speed auto transmission along with all-wheel drive.
