The horsepower of the Infiniti Q50 2.2d 170HP manual is by 30 hp grater in relation to the Volkswagen Passat B7. Because the difference is not big this should not affect the vehicles performance to a large extent.
The Infiniti Q50 consumes 15 % fewer in the combined cycle in comparison to the Volkswagen. The difference in the amount of 15 % is not realy noticeable. However in the long run it would give a considerable reduction of costs.
Thanks to 25 % higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volkswagen Passat B7 Alltrack 2.0 TDI CR DPF BlueMotion 140HP manual. This, in turn, have relevant effects on acceleration.
The Infiniti uses 0.6 l less fuel in urban cycle compared with the Volkswagen Passat B7. The difference at the level of 0.6 l will be quite significant in daily using car. Additionally, during several years it may bring gigantic cost savings. Also note that presented results of the average fuel efficiency might be considerably raised if you ride dynamically. The difference in fuel consumption of the vehicles selected by you is so big that you should consider to choose vehicles with engines of similar power and similar dimensions. Only then will the comparision have a sense.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A little difference amounts to 1.5 s suggests that the Volkswagen is somewhat beaten here. In the „middle” class, to which the Volkswagen Passat B7 Alltrack is assigned, the average acceleration is 9.9 s and is by 0.3 s faster than acceleration of Volkswagen’s car.
The top speed of the Infiniti Q50 is greater in comparison to of the Volkswagen Passat B7 by 30 km/h, which allows the Infiniti Q50 2.2d 170HP manual to cover quicker long distance of highway. The difference at the level of 30 kilometers per hour is little and will be negligible in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A wider range and a lower number of rotations at which the highest torque is reached determines an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, to have a full perspective on a car’s engine performance, it is always worth to see a torque performance graph.
The winner of these two vehicles in the aspect of fuel tank size is Infiniti Q50 2.2d 170HP manual that is able to carry by 7 % more oil than the Volkswagen.
Infiniti Q50 has 146 mm longer wheelbase than the Volkswagen. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also gives more storage space. However, cars with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
The Infiniti Q50 has 176 cc larger engine displacement compared to the Volkswagen. As the difference is small, the Infiniti should accelerate only slightly faster, assuming that other paramerters are the same.
The Infiniti is 17 millimeters longer than the Volkswagen Passat B7. Long vehicles have roomy cabin and in most cases provide bigger trunk. Although the Infiniti Q50 2.2d 170HP manual occurs to be better option for families or drivers who love the idea of convenient driving, the Volkswagen Passat B7 Alltrack 2.0 TDI CR DPF BlueMotion 140HP manual may appeal to the young because it will not cause troubles with parking and will be more maneuverable.
Model release date
The difference in date of commencement of production between presented cars is only 3 years, however, new technologies for automotive industry are appearing at a dizzying pace and for that reason the Infiniti Q50 may feature more advanced solutionswhich in a consequence may deliver you more joy of having it.
