The Showdown we've been waiting for! We take 2018's hottest new compact sports sedan and put it up against one of the best power to cost competitors on the market. The 2019 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 AWD versus the 2019 Genesis G70 3.3T Sport AWD!

This is an episode of TestDrive Showdown we've been working on for quite some time now. Ever since we booked the Infiniti Q50S 400 we knew we'd be filming it with the Genesis G70 3.3T Sport. Both of these compact executive sedans cost around $58,000 Canadian when fully equipped, and both have similar power and drivetrain configurations, so naturally we want to see which has the best ride, handling, performance, and overall feel on the road.
Our episode of TestDrive Showdown, like all Showdown episodes, is meant to show the differences and similarities between different vehicles. It it not an in-depth review of either car, and we strongly suggest watching the full episode of TestDrive Spotlight on both cars first.

This Showdown takes both of these cars on the road to talk about what makes them similar and what sets them apart. As both of these cars are demos, we do not take them on the track or in performance situations, and are using public roads for all our testing. As much as we'd like to see these two cars race, the point of these episodes is to help buyers see what their options are when looking to purchase a new vehicle.
