2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 Infiniti QX50

Among the crossover vehicles of Mercedes-Benz, the GLC is probably the most fascinating. It is not like your usual Benz that is both poised and formidable. Yes, it is a beauty, but the GLC is also quirky with its off-road capabilities. It is also a practical choice, given that it comes with plenty of customization options.

The QX50’s roots date back to 2008 and it was known as the EX model. It went through a lot of redesigns and updates many model years later. The all-new 2019 Infiniti QX50 is very different in a lot of ways from when it first came out.  Let us check out if these improvements can challenge the desirable 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Design & Style

The big star logo is distinctly attractive with the GLC’s semi-voluptuous shape. The perfect curves and creases on its exterior are only a preview of the spectacular cabin. There are intricate shapes that hug the interior. The trim can either be wood or metallic, and it cascades beautifully on the center display screen.

The latest QX50 spearheads the current design direction of the brand. It has a double-arch grille, a bulging hood, and a tasteful dramatic kink on the rear roof pillar. Elegant styling is also applied for the cabin. Its stitched dashboard gets a lot better on higher trims, with natural leather and plush suede inserts.

Technology & Safety

If you want to drive the GLC on a daily basis, it is already equipped with the essential tech features that you will need. It has great audio and navigation systems, even at the base model. The safety features of the GLC are commendable. The adaptive cruise control, in particular, is well-applauded for being precise at all times.

While the new QX50 offers a two-screen setup for infotainment, it failed to offer new features. The system is so behind that it would take a while to use its connectivity functions. There are available driver aids with its ProPilot Assist bundle. There is nothing much to expect from it, however, as it is very limited in its abilities.

Performance

The base model of the GLC has a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for a 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It delivers a confidence-inspiring driving experience and an authoritative acceleration power even at highway speeds.

Across all trims, the QX50 gets the same 2.0-liter engine with up to 268 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Although the engine is now more competent, the transmission is a let-down as it noticeable lags a half-step behind.

The Bottom Line

There is no doubt why the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC is a definite winner in this match-up. It’s classic and luxurious styling, advanced tech features, and strong driving prowess indicate that it can do more. The 2019 Infiniti QX50, on the other hand, needs to improve more especially on technology and safety features.
