2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Infiniti QX80

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS is the boxy family hauler from the German automaker. Its charm is coming from being a competent all-weather performer and the plenty cargo space. It is an old school full-sized SUV that grew old gracefully. Not much has changed for this year’s model but it serves as a preview to the new edition that is currently being cooked up by the company.

The 2019 Infiniti QX80 is a competitive limo that holds the Infiniti badge high up its affluent front. It is a prettier version of the Nissan Armada but has not made an impact as much as the GLS did.

Design & Style

A Mercedes is typically svelte, sophisticated, and alluring in its design choices. The GLS does not fit these characteristics although it still has the same level of sophistication as its siblings. If there are differences in the styling, it is because of the GLE’s massive size. It is difficult to create a sexy silhouette when this vehicle is all about muscle prowess, right? Nonetheless, this SUV is luxurious and graceful because of the lush interior that has a mix of leather, wood, and metal for the cabin details.

The QX80 has a deluxe exterior and a leather-swathed cabin. These are, however, standards across other SUVs. It simply lacks premium materials and design characteristics in order to be called a proper luxury SUV.

Technology & Safety

With a car its size, the GLS needs to have the best infotainment to entertain a big group of passengers. The dash-mounted display runs with the COMAND® system. It has standard active safety features such as forward-collision warnings, driver attention monitor, and a rearview camera. Optional safety technology is also available like traffic sign based speed warnings, blind-spot monitors, and LED lighting.

The QX80 has plenty of infotainment features but they are mostly outdated. The connectivity features and driver aids are almost a generation behind which is unacceptable considering that it is supposed to be a luxury vehicle with the best tech features.

Performance

A big engine is needed to power the GLS. The V6 engine on the base model is more than sufficient with up to 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The V8 engine is reserved for the AMG® GLS 63 variant that is the highest trim for this SUV.

The QX80 is well-equipped in the engine department with a V8 for up to 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Infiniti QX80 has what it takes to be a highly-capable full-sized SUV. Its main problem, however, is its lackluster appearance and the poorly chosen infotainment features. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz comfortably fits the description of a luxury full-sized SUV with its stunning design, reliable engine, and noteworthy technology.
