INFINITI QX55 Wheels

In our first matchup, the dynamic INFINITI QX55 goes up against the formidable Audi Q5 Sportback. Right from the start, choosing the QX55 over the Q5 Sportback represents a significant $3,600 savings. That’s only the beginning of the lengthy list of advantages that come from choosing INFINITI over Audi.

Under the hood, the QX55 has the edge when it comes to performance figures. Greater horsepower and torque help to deliver a more rewarding experience behind the wheel. Cutting-edge technology features are another category in which the Audi Q5 Sportback simply cannot compete with the INFINITI QX55. A remote engine start system, active noise cancellation, and an onboard Wi-Fi connection are three examples of features included as standard on the QX55 that are either unavailable or added-cost options on the Q5 Sportback.

Larger 20-inch alloy wheels give the QX55 a commanding stance on the road, helping you make a memorable entrance. Perfect for those living active lifestyles, the QX55 also benefits from a larger rear cargo capacity. Finally, Audi simply cannot match the long-term confidence and peace of mind that comes from superior basic and powertrain warranty protection included on every new INFINITI QX55.

INFINITI QX80 Interior

Next up to challenge the INFINITI QX55 is the Lexus NX 250. This time, the Lexus has a very slight price advantage over the INFINITI. Unfortunately for Lexus shoppers, a closer look reveals that the initial savings actually prove to be a costly mistake.

As we saw in the prior matchup, the QX55 handily defeats the NX 250 when we compare performance figures. Greater horsepower and torque means that the QX55 provides a more thrilling experience compared to the NX 250. Larger 20-inch wheels add striking style while a shorter turning radius also makes the INFINITI the superior choice in terms of maneuverability.

Inside the cabin, active noise cancellation helps create a truly serene environment. The Lexus NX does not offer a similar feature. Additionally, the QX55 boasts greater front headroom and rear legroom for enhanced comfort. Last but not least, INFINITI offers an additional 10,000 miles of basic warranty coverage compared to Lexus.


Winner – INFINITI QX55

Now that the results have been counted, the clear winner of this competitive comparison is the INFINITI QX55. The competition from both Audi and Lexus is not able to match the tremendous value, versatility, innovation, and performance of the dynamic QX55. Visit us at INFINITI of Easton today to discover for yourself all that the QX55 has to offer.
