The 2021 INFINITI QX80 is regarded by many as being the T-Rex of SUVs. Its incredible towing capacity, insane V8 power, and array of luxury features almost make it a mansion on wheels. But how does it compare to the 2021 Porsche Macan, a royal SUV that provides unmatched splendor, fantastic handling, and state of the art tech?
Design & Style
The Porsche Macan looks terrific, the type of vehicle that will get attention wherever it goes. Its distinctive side blades, body color and 3D light bar give it a memorable look. While buyers have the option of multiple colors, silver and black look the best. The interior is large and spacious with plenty of room for the head and legs. The dashboard is full of various screens and buttons, which give drivers maximum control over every vehicle function. The INFINITI QX80 is glitzy, with running boards, fender flares and a rack on the roof. It uses a dual box profile with lovely bronze accents that can be seen on the grille. It looks best on twenty two inch wheels and the interior is roomy with a curved dashboard and seats so comfortable that you won’t want to get up.
Technology & Safety
The INFINITI QX80 has more safety features than a fortress. It has received a four star NHTSA rating, and is equipped with features such as blind area monitoring, automated emergency brakes, lane control, cruise control and a camera for the rearview. Cabin amenities include Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, sunroof, dual screen infotainment, leather seats and climate control. The Porsche Macan is one of the safest SUVs on the road. It protects its passengers with automatic emergency brakes, a reinforced frame, cruise control, and gear which seeks to prevent impacts before they occur. Luxuries within its cabin include seats that can be power adjusted, the option of suede or leather, infotainment screens, climate control and air suspension.
Those that purchase the Porsche Macan Turbo will be blessed with a turbocharged engine that can generate 434 horsepower, which enables it to blaze from zero to sixty in about 4.3 seconds. The INFINITI QX80 replies with a V8, 5.6 liter engine that can generate 400 horsepower that is wedded to an automatic seven speed transmission.
The Bottom Line
Both of these SUVs are very good at what they do. Though they are comparable in price and performance, the INFINITI QX80 is too thirsty for fuel and its dual screens leave a lot to be desired, making the Porsche Macan the winner.
