2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS VS 2019 Infiniti QX80
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Infiniti QX80: Performance
The 2019 Infiniti QX80 is no pushover on the road. It has a powerful V8 engine, a smooth transmission, and a comfortable ride. The QX80 has a 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission. The automatic transmission makes smooth, timely shifts. Large SUVs are not renowned for their excellent fuel economy, and the QX80 is no exception. As expected from a luxury SUV, the QX80 glides over imperfections in the pavement. What’s not expected from a vehicle of this size is its nimble handling. The available Hydraulic Body Motion Control system boosts this SUV’s agility by helping limit its body lean around corners. It’s not a sedan, but this SUV isn’t as clunky as you’d expect.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Infiniti QX80: Feature Comparison
Overall, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 has a quiet, comfortable cabin filled with luxurious materials. However, an attentive eye will uncover a few spots with materials of a lower quality than you’d expect from a luxury SUV. The QX80’s list of standard equipment includes a moonroof, a navigation system, tri-zone automatic climate control, remote start, proximity keyless entry, *Bluetooth®, four USB ports, satellite radio, a 13-speaker Bose sound system, voice controls, and an 8-inch touch screen. Standard safety equipment includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree parking camera, pedestrian detection, and Infiniti Connection. This Infiniti has a fair amount of tech features, but many of them look dated and feel less advanced than those found in rivals, and some connectivity features are missing altogether. The QX80’s technology isn’t bad in its own right, but this SUV lags behind rivals.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Infiniti QX80: Overall Comparison
The QX80 is a decent luxury large SUV, and it offers more cargo space than many rivals. To overcome its large size, this SUV delivers plenty of engine power and brisk acceleration. The QX80 glides over bumps in the road and delivers a comfortable ride, with handling that is surprisingly nimble for a large vehicle. However, some class rivals offer more features, and the QX80’s infotainment system looks and feels outdated compared to the competition. You should skip the QX80 if you want state-of-the-art technology.
