2021 INFINITI QX50 vs 2021 INFINITI QX80

Serving Novi, MI

The diversity of the current SUV lineup at Suburban INFINITI of Novi makes it appealing to many local drivers who are shopping for a luxury vehicle. With several models available that each has numerous trim levels and packages, you can get started exploring the lineup by comparing the QX50 and the QX80 versions. Because these are the smallest and largest models in the current SUV line, you can get an excellent feel for all that the lineup holds by learning about these options.


The 2021 INFINITI QX50 sits in the luxury compact crossover SUV class, delivering a command performance. Its VC-Turbo I-4, the 2.0-liter gas powertrain, is combined with a front-wheel drive drivetrain, and it generates 268 horsepower. On the other hand, the QX80 is a full-size SUV with three rows of seating and robust capabilities. Its two-wheel-drive drivetrain is paired with a 5.6-liter V8 gas powertrain that generates 400 horsepower.


Differences between the QX50 and the QX80 continue throughout their exterior style. The smaller QX50 has an aerodynamic façade with elegant accents on display from end to end. The profile is notably curvaceous. The side windows are sharply shaped, and this is combined with a bold air vent close to the front fenders to give the QX50 its distinctive personality. The QX80’s façade is also sophisticated, but this large vehicle approaches its styling from a different perspective. From the squared-off nose to the horizontal flow through the profile, the QX80 is a force to be reckoned with. Its air vents are larger and more dramatic than the QX50’s air vents. Also, this model comes with running boards and raised roof rails for added distinction.


As you know more about the QX50 and the QX80, you may discover that the base MSRP is the difference. However, the smaller and more affordable QX50 is thoughtfully outfitted with premium features like a navigation system, smart device integration, quilted leather seats, and many other items. The QX80 takes your driving experience a step further with two display screens in the center stack, a Bose sound system, 3D graphics, voice recognition, wireless remote control, and other amenities.
