Detailed Review

When we talk about luxury SUVs, the QX80 is the name that strikes our mind. The SUV competes with prominent rivals like Lincoln Navigator, Lexus LX, and Toyota Land Cruiser. It is one of the best-selling SUVs from Infiniti. This year, it has arrived with no much changes as it got refresh last year. For 2019, we are witnessing a new Limited trim level.

Beneath the 2019 QX80's, you'll notice the same powertrain option from previous years. The robust V8 engine helps the car to pull 8,500 pounds with ease. The four-wheel drive configuration acts as an extra advantage.

The interior too remains the same, which can be quite disappointing for prospective buyers in 2019. Compared to the rivals, the QX80 looks outdated with the aged infotainment system, and a cramped third row seat. We hope buyers will be looking for some better alternatives before settling on the Infiniti QX80.

2019 Infiniti QX80 Features

7.0/10

The new Infiniti QX80 is offered in two trim levels: Luxe and the fully loaded Limited. The Luxe trim is available in both RWD and 4WD configurations while the Limited is offered in sole 4WD configuration. Both of the trims are powered by a 5.6-liter V8 engine and a seven speed automatic.

We Recommend

We would go with the Limited trim as it offers major features as standard. It holds much needed standard features like four-wheel drive, 22-inch wheels, an upgraded suspension, dual-tone front seats, and 15-speaker Bose audio system.

2019 Infiniti QX80 Engine

8.3/10
“The 2019 Infiniti QX80 is no pushover on the road. It has a powerful V8 engine, a smooth transmission, and a comfortable ride. Despite its weight, the available Hydraulic Body Motion Control system allows for a refined and relatively agile ride.”- cars.usnews

Engine and Transmission

The QX80 SUV is powered by a powerful 5.6-liter V8 engine that propels 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The base QX80 versions get rear-wheel drive as standard, but 4WD comes at an extra cost of $3,100 ore. Only the Limited trim comes with 4WD standard.

 Braking and Handling

As expected from a luxury SUV, the 2019 QX80 is agile and smooth. The available active Hydraulic Body Motion Control system prevents the SUV from leaning around corners. The QX80 is easy to park, navigate like a daily commuter.

2019 Infiniti QX80 Interior

7.5/10
“Overall, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 has a quiet, comfortable cabin filled with luxurious materials. However, an attentive eye will uncover a few spots with materials of a lower quality than you’d expect from a luxury SUV.” – cars.usnews

Seating and Comfort

The SUV offers enough room in both front and rear rows. However, the space is limited in the third row but somehow better than few rivals. The driving position feels upright, and offers better adjustability for taller drivers. Some of the controls are not within reach at times.

The seats look nicely crafted for comfortable seating. The climate control remains unrefined and the features aren’t upmarket as the similarly priced vehicles. The suspension tuning is quite good.

Infotainment System

The infotainment has received update in 2018. The 8-inch screen and Bose speaker are just amazing. There are multiple cars in this segment that offer better feature and experience than the QX80’s infotainment. Even after receiving the update, the system requires more work.

Cargo volume

The QX80 SUV offers good cargo space in its class. There’s 16.6 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third row seat, 49.6 cubic feet behind the second d row, and 95.1 cubic feet behind the third row. The SUV also gets standard power liftgate.

“In their place is fresh sheet metal in front that not only gathers this full-size luxury SUV into the rest of the Infiniti design fold, but makes it a genuinely handsome vehicle.”- Kelley Blue Book

Dimension and Weight

Last year’s QX80 was updated with some good effect. The SUV has undoubtedly maintained its stance in line with the modern day SUVs. The major improvement have been seen on the front portion of the SUV. The mesh grille holds the floating Infiniti badge that brings in more sophisticated appeal.

2019 Infiniti QX80 Competition

Infiniti QX80 vs Lincoln Navigator

The Infiniti QX80 is one of the beat choices when comparing it with the Lincoln Navigator. The QX80 offers better upgrades than the Navigator that has somehow helped the carmaker to boost the QX80 sales. The Navigator is new for the market as of now and it’s quite impossible to predict its future aspects. Therefore, the QX80 has an upper hand here with the recent tech upgrades.

The Infiniti QX80 is a complete ideal luxury SUV in today’s time. It stands on its words and offers features as per expectations. The car also offers better interior space than the Merc GLS 450. The GLS 450 offers better fuel economy. So, peeps looking for a refined engine and better fuel economy must go for the GLS 450.

Infiniti QX80 vs Lexus 570

The QX80 offered better braking and handling than the Lexus 570. The power output offered by the QX80 is more than the Lexus 570. The improved suspension system allows the QX80 to stand ahead against Lexus 570. The Lexus has an upper hand in terms of interior features and design.

2019 Infiniti QX80 Final Verdict

For people looking for a bold and strong luxury SUV, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 is the one you need. With the available all-wheel drive option, feature loaded interior and incredible build quality, the full-size SUC can handle anything that comes in its way. However, the car lacks some upmarket features in comparison to its prominent rivals. So, you may like to take a look around before making up your mind.
