2021 Infiniti QX80 Interior


The 2021 Infiniti QX80 will be able to comfortably seat 7-8 passengers with ease. The 2021 QX80 will share the same body structure as the outgoing 2020 iteration. The third row, however, feels a bit cramped and is not suitable for full-sized adults. The seats will be lined with Semi-Aniline leather and are very comfortable. The front seats are power-adjustable and come with heating and cooling functions.

Other interior features of the 2021 Infiniti QX70 will include a Tri-zone automatic climate control system with microfilter, Front dual-opening center console with adjustable armrest, storage compartment and 12-volt power outlet, 10-way power driver's seat, including 2-way power lumbar support, 8-way power front-passenger seat, including 2-way power lumbar support, power 60/40-split fold-flat and reclining third-row seats. There are many more impressive features in higher trims like QX80 SENSORY.

It can be concluded that the interior space in the 2021 Infiniti QX80 is not as impressive compared to its competitors. The third row could prove to be pretty compact when compared to its rivals. The GMC Yukon can seat up to 9 people, however, provides the minimum interior spacing.

How is the 2021 Infiniti QX80 infotainment system? 

The 2021 Infiniti QX80 hosts a pretty basic and standard infotainment system. It has Infiniti InTouch dual display system, with an upper 8-inch and a lower 7-inch WXGA LCD touch-screen display. There's Navigation with Lane Guidance and 3D building graphics, 5-year trial access to Premium Traffic, and MapCar which make the drive experience much more tech-oriented.

2021 Infiniti QX80 gets a dual-screen infotainment

It also comes in with all the standard connectivity features like Apple CarPlay integration, Android Auto, and Infiniti InTouch with Wi-Fi Hotspot with 30-day trial access. For your audio entertainment, there's the SiriusXM Travel Link with 3-month trial access to weather, fuel prices, stock prices, sports scores, movie listings, and parking with Bose 13-speaker Premium Sound system. 

How is the Cargo Capacity of the 2021 Infiniti QX80? 

The 2021 Infinity QX80 is essentially a Nissan Armada underneath which means that it shares its underpinnings and as a result, its ginormous dimensions with Nissan's flagship SUV. This translates to tonnes of boot space, which is one of the best for this segment.

The QX80 gets a class-leading 16.6 cu-ft of cargo space with all three-rows in place. With the third-row down, it frees up 49.6 cu-ft of space which is more than enough to move a small house, and if for some reason eve that does not make the cut then you could always fold the second row of seats to reveal a massive 95.1 cu-ft of cargo space. 

2021 Infiniti QX80 has one of the biggest boots in its segment

The boot is nice and square and even gets a skid plate which makes loading objects a breeze, but the high ground clearance and ride height means loading heavy objects into the boot become a cumbersome task. When compared to some of its direct German rivals like the new BMW X7 and Mercedes GLS, the QX80 just has tonnes of space. However, the GMC Yukon is a different story altogether. With the 3rd row in place, the Infiniti has more cargo space, but with the third row down, the Yukon edges out ahead of the QX80 and this lead is increased further with all the seats folded down. This is due to the sheer length of the GMC which simply dwarf everything in this segment.

2021 Infiniti QX80 Exterior


The exterior design of the 2021 Infiniti QX80 goes almost unchanged from the outgoing 2020 version. Even after having a huge body and wide dimensions, QX80 has managed to keep itself attractive and elegant. The Infiniti QX80 is a good looking SUV and the huge dimensions give it a well-deserved road presence, as compared to the rivals. 

2021 Infiniti QX80 is an imposing SUV

The noteworthy exterior features of the 2021 Infiniti QX80 include Automatic-on/off LED headlights, 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 275/60R20 H-rated, all-season tires, Power-folding, auto-dimming, heated outside mirrors, Front and rear sonar system, Power sliding tinted glass moonroof with one-touch auto-open/close, tilt feature and sliding sunshade, Power rear liftgate and Integrated class IV tow hitch and 7-pin wiring harness with cover.

The exterior dimensions of the 2021 Infiniti QX80 are greater than other SUVs of its class and that gives a more aggressive and better road presence to the QX80. The BMW X7 is the latest entry in the segment and thus gets a fresh design. However, the Mercedes Benz GLS with its more traditional design feels a bit plusher than the rest of the lot.

GMC Yukon lags behind the QX80 in most aspects but also gives head to head competition to the latter car in many cases. The prices of the two cars are very similar which make stand in the same league of affordability.

2021 GMC Yukon

Nevertheless, the QX80 proves itself to be the better option in front of the Yukon. The Infiniti provides better cabin spacing than the Yukon and feels more plush and luxurious as well. 

2021 Infiniti QX80 vs BMW X7

QX80 does not stand a chance in comparison to the X7. The latter car surpasses the QX80 in almost every aspect. Even though the 2021 QX80 boasts a much stronger engine performance, the BMW offers better on-road performance. The interior and exterior designs of the latter vehicle dominate the competition.

2021 BMW X7

The luxury offered could be comparable but the QX80 is clearly seen to be standing behind the German car. The price difference is much greater than the last competitor we talked about with the BMW costing much more than the QX80. 

2021 Infiniti QX80 Final Verdict


Infiniti QX80 is a decent family hauler and has a sturdy and reliable engine under its hood perks of being a Japanese brand. But its competitors offer better features and mileage compared to the QX80. But if you are looking for a 7 seater SUV on a tight budget, then the 2021 Infiniti QX80 is worth considering as an option.
