2020 INFINITI QX80 vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS

Serving Troy, MI

For SUV shoppers in the Troy area who demand luxury from a full-size vehicle, the INFINITI QX80 and the Mercedes-Benz GLS are often top options. Both of these elegant yet powerful vehicles offer passenger seating across three rows, and they deliver an exceptional range of features for you and your travel companions to enjoy. However, stunning differences exist between these models, and they must be explored carefully before you pick out a new SUV.


The QX80 is moderately more affordable than the GLS at the entry-level MSRP. It sits at the top of INFINITI’s impressive SUV line. Notably, it has a boxy profile with flat surfaces over the hood and roof. The sides are smoothly contoured, and they show off molded side steps, accented wheel fenders, and chrome air vents. Additional exterior equipment includes raised roof rails, aggressively designed headlights, fog lamps, a panoramic moonroof, etc. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS has black lower-body molding without a side step. Its design is elevated by deep contouring on the sides and a strong angle down the hood. Additional features are a metal-accented front bumper, raised roof rails, and LED headlights.


A dashboard scheme highlights the lovely interior design of the QX80. This design features curvature in front of the driver and passenger, combined with a tall center stack. The stack has an InTouch display screen topped by a second display screen. Additional features are a third display screen in the instrumentation panel, a navigation system, a wireless charging station, an elite sound system, and other equipment. The interior of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS has a different look with contiguous display screens spanning horizontally across the dashboard. Additional features include smart device integration, a sound system, a navigation system, a push-button ignition, and more.


The differences between these SUVs carries on to their performance abilities. For 2020, the base engine in the QX80 is a V8 design that produces 400 horsepower. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS, on the other hand, has a turbo I-6, a 3.0-liter engine that generates 362 horsepower. Performance capabilities for both of these models get increasingly impressive as you walk up their trim lines.

Because the QX80 is offered in several trim levels and with varying performance capabilities, you need to experience the QX80 fully as the next step in your shopping process. Visit Suburban INFINITI of Troy soon for assistance with your test drive.
