2021 INFINITI Q50 and Audi A4 Comparison

2021 INFINITI Q50 vs. 2021 Audi A4

Powerful, yet elegant, the 2021 INFINITI Q50 checks all the boxes for a superior driving experience. This luxury sedan remains a leader of the industry with its remarkable ride and precise performance, both with its powertrain and the handling it offers. When drivers choose to drive an INFINITI vehicle, they know they are getting a high-quality automobile that appeals to the discerning Colorado consumer. Competing with other luxury brands such as the 2021 Audi A4, the INFINITI Q50 showcases the higher performance and classier edge to its design that is a trademark of every INFINITI vehicle.  


The twin-turbocharged V6 engine under the hood of the 2021 INFINITI Q50 is a behemoth for the segment. Sporting 300 horsepower sent smoothly through the seamless seven-speed automatic transmission, the Q50 commands the road in a way that the 2021 Audi A4 simply cannot with either of its engine options. The A4 comes with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that can either generate 201 horsepower or 261 horsepower based on the designation. The Audi also features a seven-speed automatic transmission to channel its performance to the wheels. The INFINITI Q50 comes standard with RWD and has the option to be equipped with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive for improved handling performance. AWD is standard on the 2021 Audi A4. 

Interior Features

While both sedans provide passengers with the luxury they expect from the high-end brands, the INFINITI Q50 has more standard infotainment options than the Audi A4. Both sedans come with compatibility to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for applicable smartphones. However, the Q50 has SiriusXM® radio already built into the suite of entertainment mediums at the base trim level. The A4 has this as an available option for upper-level trims. Additionally, the INFINITI has a Wi-Fi® hotspot integrated for reliable connectivity to the Internet no matter where the driver and passengers take the luxury sedan. The Audi only comes with this as an available add-on.  

Safety Features

INFINITI prides itself on having vehicles that are safe to operate in virtually any road and weather condition. With the Q50, this is no exception thanks to the inclusion of technology such as Vehicle Stability Control that uses additional Traction Control to keep the vehicle under the driver’s command even when the conditions become less favorable. Electronic Brake Force Distribution allows for consistent stopping potential from the sedan even on slippery road conditions such as rain. The Audi A4 comes with the pre sense® basic and pre sense® city systems. These activate when the vehicle senses a collision is imminent and will do several protocols to try and either lessen the severity of the impact or prevent it altogether. This includes activating emergency braking.
