2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class


2019 Infiniti QX50

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Infiniti QX50

As a veteran in the small luxury sedan category, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class continues to amaze many car enthusiasts. It has aged so well that the recent styling only made it look formidable as ever. It is not surprising that most competitors look at the C-Class as the toughest rival.

Infiniti took sweet time to perfect the 2019 version of the QX50. It received a major redesign in the hopes of being a worthy and competitive choice against the latest C-Class. Let us find out if it can measure up to the tested prowess of the C-Class.

Design & Style

The athletic design of the C-Class features a wind-slicing shape and a more defined silhouette. The grille has a newer diamond pattern and both the head and tail lights were restyled to further brighten the exterior features. The coffee-colored wood trim for the interior cabin gives it a sense of classic luxury, but still with a modern touch.

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 has a tasteful exterior that easily makes it a standout from among the crowd. It features a dramatic roof pillar kink, a handsome bulging hood, and a muscular double-arch grille. The cabin is also filled with posh touches. Add more for an upgrade and you will have diamond quilting on the natural leather finish.

Technology & Safety

The standard COMAND® system for the C-Class’ infotainment takes smartphone integration to a new level. Basic functions can be remotely accessed with it, such as unlocking the car from a distance and even starting it up using a smartphone. Standard driver aids are already impressive but they can be further upgraded to more cutting-edge features.

There is a catch on the QX50’s user-friendly infotainment system. It is very simple and familiar to use because it uses dated technology. Latest smartphone integration is not even available. Driver aids are there but are only suitable for freeway use. They tend to be unreliable when used on curvy roads.


The base trim of the C-Class has a powerful 2.0-liter engine for up to 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. This power is enough if you are looking for a spirited drive on any kind of road.

It is a good thing that the 2.0-liter engine of the QX50 can deliver up to 268 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. It gives the car a competent and stable stance on the road. The transmission, however, is a little annoying when it suddenly lags half a step behind.

The Bottom Line

Beyond the impressive engine and the tasteful design, there is nothing else that would make the 2019 Infiniti QX50 a better choice than any of its rivals. It looks inferior to the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and it is not only in terms of styling. The new C-Class is filled with so many advanced features that made the QX50 look very basic instead of a luxury vehicle.
