2019 INFINITI QX80 vs. 2019 Mercedes Benz G Class | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI QX80 vs. 2019 Mercedes Benz G Class

For years, INFINITI has dominated the high end SUV market, and continues this success with the release of the 2019 INFINITI QX80. Its commanding presence, combined with its tranquil interior and incredible V8 power is a combination few drivers can resist. But Mercedes has released an SUV it believes can compete with the QX80, which is the 2019 Mercedes Benz G Class, which has garnered positive feedback due to its spacious interior, refined look and performance on the road. Which should you choose?

Design & Style

In terms of style, the Mercedes G Class hasn’t changed much from its predecessors, but it doesn’t have to. It’s boxy exterior remains popular with vintage fans and is reminiscent of a Jeep vehicle. The door hinges are exposed, the badges and grille are distinct, and the wheels are about 22 inches. A digitized display which is wide screen has been placed in the cockpit and the interior surface is a mixture of brushed metal combined with walnut wood and carbon fiber. The QX80 has a seating position which is tall, with lots of chrome and leather within the exterior. It has three rows of seats that can be upgraded to nappa, and the nose has been toned down with the addition of the mesh grille which retains a badge that floats.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI QX80 is equipped with every safety countermeasure one can conceive of. This includes warnings when departing lanes, cruise control that is adaptive, blind area monitoring, headlights which are adaptive, and a rearview mirror that is camera based. Inside, this SUV is a five star resort on wheels, with heated/cooled seats, Bluetooth support, eight inch touch screens, wood that is open poor, quilted hides, and a power lift gate. The Mercedes Benz G class features many of the same safety features, including a rear and surround view camera. Drivers get emergency automatic brakes, frontal impact warnings, park assist, and airbags on the rear side, and attention assists. Interior amenities include climate control, sunroof, and Burmester sound system with 15 speakers and Bluetooth support.


Mercedes is known for the performance of its vehicle, and the G Class doesn’t disappoint. It comes with a twin turbo V8 that is 4 liter and capable of producing a mouthwatering 416 horsepower. It can go from zero to sixty in just 5.8 seconds. The INFINITI QX80 also comes with a V8 engine that is 5.6 liter and capable of cranking out a mammoth 400 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Choosing between these two SUVs is no easy task, as both are exceptional. However, the Mercedes G Class disappoints with its lack of off road capabilities resulting from its front suspension, and many consider its appearance a bit passé, so the INFINITI QX80 wins.
