The 2022 INFINITI QX80 is a flagship sport utility vehicle with an immaculate appearance, dynamic powertrain and extravagant interior. But how does it compare to the 2022 BMW X4, a refined SUV with wonderful handling, superb balance and an array of gadgets?
Design & Style
The X4 is a sizeable vehicle that can carry up to five people. Its latest features for this year include a fresh frontal appearance, revise LED taillights, a brand new ten inch touch display and improved efficiency. In the X4 30i nineteen inch wheels come standard, and inside the cabin passengers will be treated to reddish orange leather with carbon fiber panels. Its steering is hefty yet accurate, and the brakes feel wonderful.
The INFINITI QX80 is upscale in every respect, with a sturdy build and powerful engine that offers a smooth riding experience. It is a three row SUV which can carry up to eight passengers, and its latest features for this year include a revised central stack, upgraded infotainment and an HVAC panel which has been redesigned and is now easier to use. Its suspension is fully independent which results in greater handling and better thrust during acceleration.
Technology & Safety
The INFINITI QX80 has many driver assistance features, such as emergency automated brakes, frontal impact alerts, multiple airbags, pedestrian detection and lane management. Comforts inside its cabin include 4 USB ports, a thirteen speaker Bose audio system, twelve inch touch display, and powered leather seats that can be cooled or heated.
The BMW X4 has many of the same safety features, such as parking sensors, automatic emergency brakes, adapted cruise control and heads up display with a camera that has surround view. Its cabin comforts include a powered sunroof, dual twelve inch touch displays, variable sports steering, and leather seats that can be cooled or heated.
Those that purchase the BMW X4 can get a turbo 6 engine that can generate 382 horsepower, with the ability to tow 3500 pounds and accelerate from zero to sixty in 4.4 seconds. Those that purchase the INFINITI QX80 will get a V8, 5.6 liter engine that can generate 400 horsepower with the ability to tow 8,500 pounds and accelerate from zero to sixty in about 5.9 seconds.
The Bottom Line
While both sport utility vehicles are comparably equipped when it comes to safety features, the INFINITI QX80 seats three extra passengers and has more than twice the towing capacity of the BMW. And this combined with the X4 only reserving 50 cubic feet for cargo space while the INFINITI reserves 95 cubic feet makes the QX80 the superior vehicle.
