2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 Infiniti QX50

Compact-sized luxury SUVs are entertaining crossover vehicles. They are fun to drive because they are lighter, and nimble handling is perfect for any driving style. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA has conveniently earned the utmost recognition for being the perfect small luxury SUV. The practical shape made it look sporty but still roomy. Its performance is city-friendly but you can definitely take it everywhere.

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is also a beautiful and technologically innovative small SUV. It is also among the top of its class and the higher value options can also pass as luxurious. Here is a comparison of the two vehicles to see why they are ranked high in this segment.

Design & Style

The latest GLA looks both stylish and tough. It has a businesslike stance but certainly not scary. The sculpted body is balanced with the steeply-angled roof pillars. It is more like a chic SUV especially with the fine materials used for its cabin.

The new QX50 comes with the brand’s latest design course. The double-arch grille on the bulging hood looks tasteful. Everything on the exterior design elements is working together in a good way. The result is a handsome QX50 from every angle.

Technology & Safety

Unlike most of its rivals, the GLA comes equipped with a premium-quality infotainment system. Additional tech bundles are attractive but the standard features are fine as is. The basic driver aids are also working as they should but it is highly encouraged to purchase optional packages to make the car extra safer.

The infotainment system of the QX50 is dated. Only the lower touchscreen display has decent graphics, but still not at par with the standards. Smartphone integration using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is not available but it does have Bluetooth® for connectivity.

Performance

Under the hood of the base trim is a 2.0-liter engine that can reach up to 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.  It is capable to maintain a creamy ride even through bumpy roads conditions. The torque may be split on the rear and front wheels. This gives you an advantage if you have a preference on where to put more or lesser torque.

The three trims of the QX50 share the same 268 hp engine with 280 lb-ft of torque. The engine should be good but the transmission lags a half-step behind making it annoying. Power delivery is also inconsistent and the car gets jumpy on heavy traffic.

The Bottom Line

A dated technology can be remedied by having premium options to upgrade the features. It is, therefore, the inconsistent power delivery of the 2019 Infiniti QX50 that severely dampened its overall performance. It made the QX50 it a lot of steps behind the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA.
