Serving Novi, MI

Novi drivers who are in the market for a luxury crossover SUV may quickly narrow down their possibilities to the 2020 INFINITI QX50 and the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. These are both seemingly comparable vehicles produced by leading luxury automakers, but they stand apart in many areas. Before you can finalize your plans to drive home in a specific SUV, you need to explore these differences in greater detail.


One of the first things that you may notice when you compare these two models is the price. The base MSRP for the QX50 is approximately $5,000 lower than the entry-level GLC-Class’s price. You may assume that this price would reflect differences in the quality of their interior features, but you may discover that this is not the case. The QX50 comes with desired features like a push-button ignition, a sunroof, dynamic guidelines for rear parking assistance, high beam assistance, a heads-up display, intelligent cruise control, leather material, memory, and power front seats, voice controls, a Connect Touch color display screen, USB ports, Android Auto, direct adaptive steering and other gear. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class has a no-frills interior with leather material. It comes with a floating display screen, a climate control system, a heated steering wheel with mounted controls, cruise control, ambient lighting, smartphone integration, power-adjusting seats, and other items.


Your comparison of the QX50 to the GLC-Class continues throughout the exterior with a look at design and features. The 2020 QX50 carries a modern design with prestigious flair. Its stunning profile is combined with gentle contouring throughout the hood and sides, and this is paired with crisp personality lines. At the front, the QX50 comes with pointed LED headlights, bold air vents, chrome accents around the black mesh grille and foglamps. Other features that you can appreciate if you choose to buy the INFINITI QX50 have powered side mirrors with heat, dual chrome exhaust tips, integrated roof rails, a liftgate spoiler, and block body molding. This is compared to the GLC-Class, which has minor definition and smooth panels throughout the sides and hood. This SUV also comes with a large air vent with a bow-like shape that is placed below a small grille. Foglamps, dual exhaust finishers, and LED headlights are also found on the GLC-Class.


The difference continues with performance capabilities. If you take home the 2020 INFINITI QX50, your car will be powered by a VC-Turbo 2.0-liter, I4 engine. This comes with select driving modes and a continuously variable transmission, and it generates 268 horsepower. The primary engine in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is mated to an automatic 9-speed transmission, and it produces 255 horsepower.
