2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2019 Infiniti QX80

The full redesign of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE proves once more why it consistently leads the pack on its segment. It can be pretty hard to challenge the new GLE because of the added groundbreaking features.

As a full-sized luxury SUV, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 has impressive capabilities. The latest version is also revamped to have an updated styling. It is a strong contender but will it conquer the latest GLE? Here is a comparison to find out.

Design & Style

What is very evident in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is the brand’s conscious effort to make the design as aerodynamic as possible. They want to keep the GLE’s good looks while adding more functional details to it. An example is the addition of subtle spoilers. It is not only there to define the tires or the rear windows. They were added to reduce the noise. Even more captivating is the cabin with its ambient lighting.

As for the QX80, it sports an updated style by letting go of the under bite and a better grille was put in place. The nose part is also less pronounced and the side grilles from the 2018 version were replaced with a single grille piece on the front doors area.

Technology & Safety

Expect nothing less for the technology treatments of the GLE. The MBUX sets the standards for in-car infotainment. Its voice-control system is impeccable and is one of the best there is. The Driver Assistance package is a great add-on even if the standard equipment is already efficient.

While Infinity tried its best to offer advanced tech for its infotainment, it lacks the capabilities to call it updated. Even its smartphone integration is outdated with only the USB ports and *Bluetooth® available for connectivity.

Performance

Even though there are higher trims that can produce more power, the 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque from the base trim is already adequate. It is more than enough to experience a fun, stable, and agile driving experience on the GLE.

The Infiniti QX80, on the other hand, is equipped to perform. Both of its trims share the same 5.6-liter V8 engine. It can generate as much as 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. The V8 is impressively smooth given its size. The only thing that is worrisome about the QX80’s performance is that there is a lot of nosedive upon braking hard. Although the car can perfectly handle it, it can cause mini heart-attacks when it happens.

The Bottom Line

There are plenty of things to like about the 2019 Infiniti QX80 especially its strong V8 engine. The lack of impressive technology is a huge let down though as luxury vehicles are expected to have the best in tech features. This is precisely why the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE emerged as a winner. Its performance is balanced with the cutting edge tech features and its incredible styling.
