2021 INFINITI QX50 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC

Serving Novi, MI

If you search for quality and luxury in your next crossover SUV, the QX50 is an excellent option that leaves no room for disappointment. As a midsize luxury crossover SUV, it competes directly with the Mercedes-Benz GLC. The GLC has a higher price tag, and this is only one of many differences between these vehicles that may ultimately impact your buying decision. After getting to know the differences between the QX50 and the GLC, which crossover SUV will you decide to focus your full attention on?


The QX50 has endless appeal with its sleek, elegant façade. The chrome-accented grille carries the signature, INFINITI-style shape, linked to the sharp LED headlights. Both the hood and sides have beefy definition to highlight the SUV’s power, but these accents are muted through soft curvature. The GLC, on the other hand, has a traditional look with large headlights. These are separated from the horizontal-themed grille. The sides and hood are relatively smooth compared to the QX50’s styling.


The two models have several shared traits inside their cabins. These are smart device integration, auto climate control system, cruise control, leather material, and more. The QX50 has additional standard or optional features that you will not find in the Mercedes-Benz GLC. These include a CD player, satellite radio, HD radio, a wireless hotspot, and powered adjustments for the front-row passenger’s seat.


While many aspects of these SUVs’ capabilities are comparable, the QX50 stands apart in the area of fuel economy. These models have similar ratings on the highway, but the QX50 is far more efficient in town. Both models have a great suspension system, power steering, and turbocharged engines.
