When are you searching for a large size luxury SUV, you will quickly realize just how many options are available. It can be difficult to decide which model is the right fit for your needs, but it can help to compare similar models. Today we’re going to do just that with the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS and the 2017 Infiniti QX80. These vehicles might look similar, but they have many differences to discover.
The first major difference between these two vehicles is their fuel economy ratings. The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 gets an estimated average of 19 city/22 highway mpg*, which is pretty impressive for a vehicle of this size. The Infiniti QX80 isn’t quite as impressive. It only gets an estimated average of 14 city/20 highway mpg. This is a significant difference worth considering.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS might get better fuel efficiency, but it isn’t because it is that much smaller than the Infiniti QX80. It still offers almost the same amount of interior cargo volume and passenger volume. It is worth a few less cubic feet of space for an improved fuel economy rating.
