Since the luxury full-size sedan sector has grown more competitive over the years, automakers have been compelled to tweak their offerings as performance-oriented vehicles. The Q70, essentially an update of the M Series that INFINITI introduced in 2011, is one of the younger ones, battling against older and more established vehicles like the GS, which was one of the first Lexus vehicles when it debuted two decades prior. For 2019, neither vehicle gets a lot of updates, if at all. Ultimately, though, the 2019 INFINITI Q70 is worth considering over the 2019 Lexus GS, the most popular version of which is the GS 350. Here’s why:
Those looking for gobs of power will not be disappointed with either the 2019 INFINITI Q70 or the 2019 Lexus GS 350. On the Q70, you can upgrade to the hefty, muscular 5.6-liter V8, which puts out 420 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque. The GS 350 variant is partly named after its 3.5-liter V6: an engine that is not only significantly smaller, but also less powerful at 311 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.
The 2019 INFINITI Q70 is a remarkably safe vehicle as determined by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS. By carrying out research and producing ratings, this organization works to reduce the number of motor vehicle traffic collisions and the rate of injuries and amount of property damage in the crashes that still occur. The Q70 has the top-level rating of “Good” in every IIHS crashworthiness test category and the top-level rating of “Superior” in front crash prevention ability. It also has an “Acceptable” rating in headlight illumination effectiveness. By comparison, the 2019 Lexus GS 350 is only tested for three of the five crashworthiness tests, even though it is also rated as “Good” for each category. In addition, there are no ratings for its headlight effectiveness; indeed, the GS gets the bottom-level “Basic” rating in front crash prevention ability.
Most vehicles, including the 2019 Lexus GS 350, typically have a rearview camera. This type of camera provides a video image to give you a view of what’s behind you, therefore avoiding a backup collision. However, on the 2019 INFINITI Q70, that rearview camera is replaced by a 360-degree camera, which not only gives you a rear-view perspective, but also side-view and front-view ones. That way, you alleviate blind spots from all angles, rather than just the rearview.
