Was supercharging the QX60 hybrid 2.5-liter engine better than turbocharging?

Did Infinti make the right choice by supercharging the 2.5-liter four cylinder engine in the hybrid model? Would a turbo setup be better?

yes, turbochargers tend to kick in more in the higher RPM's, superchargers don't. Since it runs off of a belt thats connected to a pulley on the engine it's a more consistent stream of power.

which would in the end be more fuel efficient? supercharger or turbocharger?

Superchargers depend on the engines crankshaft to do it's job while turbochargers uses gases the engine already gets rid of.
