2022 INFINITI QX55 Crossover Coupe vs 2022 Audi Q5 SUV in Colorado

2022 INFINITI QX55 vs 2022 Audi Q5


The perfect family SUV is comfortable, fun to drive, versatile and capable. A premium luxury SUV should check all those boxes and add elements including elegance, style, and world-class technology features. The all-new 2022 INFINITI QX55 meets and exceeds this goal. From its super-sleek fastback coupe exterior style to its refined passenger cabin, the QX55 is truly impressive. When comparing to the Audi Q5, INFINITI QX55 owners will appreciate the additional horsepower and torque that comes standard, even with base-level models. Rear passengers will appreciate the presence of more legroom than the Audi. Also, the Audi Q5 delivers cargo space that is at the bottom of its class which translates into less room for groceries or luggage. While both vehicles deliver a luxury passenger experience, the INFINITI QX55 is the better value with increased performance, a more comfortable passenger cabin, more versatility for cargo, and standard entertainment features not found on the Audi Q5.


The powertrain of a luxury SUV should be bold and responsive to match the sleek exterior style. Drivers of the brand-new INFINITI QX55 will not be disappointed. The engine compartment features a performance-inspired 268-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine, which produces an amazing 280 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the engine is a continuously variable transmission for smooth and efficient shifting. To aid with traction and handling, all-wheel drive (AWD) is standard on all QX55 trim levels. While the Audi Q5 also delivers standard AWD, the powertrain equipped on the Q5 delivers less power than the INFINITI QX55. The Audi Q5 features a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that only produces 261-horsepower. Coupled with the engine is a 7-speed automatic transmission. While the INFINITI luxury SUV delivers additional horsepower, it is as fuel-efficient as the Audi Q5. Both SUVs have a combined fuel economy rating of 25 MPG. For the performance category, the new 2022 INFINITI QX55 is the clear leader with its impressive horsepower, capability, and fuel economy.

Interior Features

A premium luxury SUV should be well-appointed with world-class technology features and exude sophistication. The passenger cabin of the all-new INFINITI QX55 is well-crafted with premium materials and is focused on passenger comfort. The dash design is modern and even features a two-tone suede-topped dashboard in higher trim levels. Ergonomically designed seating for five is both comfortable and elegant. The driver and front passenger will enjoy the standard heated seat function on brisk winter mornings.  This premium SUV also features a connected cabin the whole family will appreciate. Dual high-definition touchscreens deliver access to top entertainment options, as well as vehicle controls. A convenient Wi-Fi hotspot allows up to seven devices to be connected while traveling. The Audi Q5 also features a refined cabin and intuitive technology features. The Q5 does fall short when comparing rear passenger legroom and cargo capacity, both key factors when evaluating a family SUV. Also, while the INFINITI QX55 is equipped with HD and satellite radio, both of these entertainment amenities are optional equipment on the Audi Q5. The INFINITI QX55 is well-equipped with comfort and convenience features to fit your truly unique lifestyle. 

Safety Features

When commuting on busy roadways, passenger safety is a paramount concern. The INFINITI QX55 and Audi Q5 are both equipped with an impressive suite of advanced safety systems that deliver peace of mind when driving. The all-new QX55 is equipped with world-class safety technology including Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and more. Additional innovative safety features are available, including a head-up display, traffic sign recognition, intelligent cruise control, direct adaptive steering, ProPILOT Assist, and many more helpful systems. The Audi Q5 is equipped with the same standard features found on the INFINITI QX55, with the addition of auto-leveling headlights and cross-traffic alerts.
