2019 INFINITI QX80 Interior

The first challenger to face off against the INFINITI QX80 is the Acura MDX. Although each is the largest SUV in their respective brand’s model lineup, you’ll quickly discover that the MDX cannot measure up to the QX80. The MDX begins this matchup with a slight price advantage. However, any perceived value doesn’t translate to feature content or performance.

Comparing performance figures, the INFINITI QX80 has 143 more horsepower and 195 lb-ft more torque than the less-powerful MDX. Not only will you immediately appreciate this advantage when you accelerate onto the highway — you’ll also be able to tow 3,000 pounds more than the Acura when you drive an INFINITI QX80.

7-passenger seating allows the QX80 to carry the whole family down to the lake for a weekend vacation. Standard features on the QX80 which you won’t find on the Acura MDX include LED brake lights, rear audio controls, and running boards for easy access. A total of 13 speakers are included in the Bose audio system inside the QX80, giving you and your family a superior listening experience.

Turning our attention towards the interiors of both SUVs, the obvious favorite remains the INFINITI QX80. It offers greater front headroom, rear headroom, and rear legroom than the Acura along with room for one additional passenger. You’ll have 4.2 additional cubic feet of cargo capacity as well. Although Acura and INFINITI share the same 4 years of warranty coverage term length, INFINITI offers 10,000 more miles of coverage.

A stark contrast to the previous matchup, the INFINTI QX80 begins its comparison with the Lexus LX with a massive $17,630 price advantage. Thinking that choosing the QX80 would mean sacrificing on premium features and capability? You’d be sorely mistaken.

Despite its higher price tag, the LX falls short of the performance found on the QX80. Even with greater horsepower and torque figures, the QX80 still manages to deliver higher highway fuel economy than the less-powerful Lexus LX. Choosing INFINITI means that you’ll have 1,500 extra pounds of towing capacity to bring your largest toys along for the adventure.

Upscale amenities found inside the QX80 which you won’t find inside the LX include voice-activated air conditioning, a remote start system, and rear audio controls. You’ll always arrive at your destination safely and on time thanks to a standard navigation system inside the INFINITI. A greater number of speakers helps everyone inside the INFINITI QX80 enjoy a concert-like listening experience. In terms of cargo capacity, the Lexus LX is clearly inferior with 12 cubic feet less cargo space. Greater front headroom, rear headroom, and rear legroom help illustrate how the QX80 is the better option for those with large families or active lifestyles. Finally, the basic warranty coverage of INFINITI extends 10,000 miles beyond what you’ll receive at Lexus.
