2018 Toyota Sequoia vs. 2018 Infiniti QX80
Looking to invest your hard-earned cash to purchase a car? Are you in a dilemma to choose between the 2018 Infiniti QX80 and the 2018 Toyota Sequoia? This confusion can be cleared with a brief comparison of both the vehicles. You would come to know what makes Toyota a better choice.
Design & Style
The exteriors are quite posh for both the models, but the interiors tell a different story. The 2018 Ford Expedition can seat up to 7 or 8 people, depending on whether you choose the optional 2nd-row bench seat. The 3rd row is quite cramped for an adult. The lavish interior is made up of top-notch materials, although a few spots have cheap plastics that may spoil the luxury feel.
The 2018 Toyota Sequoia can seat up to 7 people comfortably, with all the three rows being quite spacious. The front seats have plenty of room and support, and there are 3 complete sets of LATCH connectors on the 2nd row bench seat. The cabin is quite upscale, made up of quality materials.
Technology & Safety
Technology and safety are two important aspects of any vehicle. Some of the standard features in the 2018 Infiniti QX80 include a 13-speaker Bose audio system, Bluetooth, a USB port, an 8-inch touchscreen, tri-zone automatic climate control and navigation. You will be disappointed with QX80’s infotainment system, which feels a bit outdated for a vehicle of its class. It has a black-and-white screen and it lacks connectivity options like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Technology-wise, the 2018 Toyota is a much better choice with its Entune infotainment system, including navigation, Siri Eyes Free and a 6.1-inch touchscreen. Smartphone integration is also available, unlike QX80. Safety features include Toyota Safety Sense, a rearview camera, rear cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, lane change assist and blind spot monitoring.
Both the models give tough competition to each other in terms of performance. But the 2018 Toyota Sequoia wins the race with it 5.7-liter V8 engine that can thrust a torque of 401 lb-ft and power of 381HP. Even though the QX80 has the same engine specifications, it does not deliver as smooth an acceleration as you would expect from an SUV. Also, the mileage is on the lower side.
The Bottom Line
Taking all the aspects of a vehicle into consideration, it is safe to say that the 2018 Toyota Sequoia has an upper hand. This doesn’t take Infiniti QX80 out of the equation, but for the given price point, you don’t want to miss out on a complete package offered by Toyota.
