Power & MPG Specs

One thing is for certain: Both the Audi Q3 and INFINITI QX50 hit the ground running with plenty of power. They both come standard with a 2.0L turbocharged I-4 engine that delivers a hefty horsepower punch that's sure to excite you as you cruise through New Jersey.

When you do hit the road, however, how often will these vehicles have you stopping to fill up? You can get an idea of their 2021 EPA-estimated fuel economies in the chart below:


Audi Q3


City MPG w/ All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

22 MPG city1

22 MPG city

Highway MPG w/ AWD

30 MPG highway1

28 MPG highway

While both the Audi and INFINITI have comparable EPA-estimated MPG ratings during city driving, we see the Audi Q3 take you a few extra miles per gallon on the highway. So, if you have a big family road trip planned, you may make fewer pit stops in the Audi than the INFINITI QX50.

Capability of the Audi Q3 vs INFINITI QX50

Now, let's talk about capability. Both SUVs are ready for your next outing with spacious interiors that can comfortably seat five passengers plus quite a bit of cargo.

They're also well-equipped for challenging terrain thanks to their smart AWD systems. These systems actively monitor your roadway conditions and automatically adjust torque distribution among all four wheels. This results in improved traction control in challenging conditions, including inclement weather like rain or snow.

The major difference to consider is that the Audi Q3 makes its quattro® AWD system standard on all trim levels. The INFINITI QX50, on the other hand, requires an upgrade or add-on.

Interior Features and Technologies

Inside the cabins of the Audi Q3 and INFINITI QX50, you get first-class treatment with premium leather materials, available heated seats, and an available 8-way adjustable driver's seat with available lumbar support.

They're both high-tech, too, with available connectivity features like:

  • Bluetooth® wireless
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • Voice recognition technology

You can access all your connectivity and entertainment controls on the standard touchscreen display in the center stack. The INFINITI has an available 8-inch upper display while the Audi has an available 8.8-inch center display. With a slightly larger display, infotainment features may be easier to quickly see while driving in the Audi Q3 than they are in the INFINITI QX50.
