Drivers who want to see how a standard 3-row SUV measures up against a luxury model often end up comparing Nissan Armada vs INFINITI QX80. You can think of them as twins since INFINITI is the luxury arm of Nissan, but they do differ a few key ways.

Power and MPG

Both the 2019 INFINITI QX80 and the 2019 Nissan Armada use the same 5.6L V8 powerhouse across all trims, though output differs a little between them:

  • INFINITI QX80: Makes up to 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque.
  • Nissan Armada: Makes up to 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque.

The same seven-speed automatic delivers up to:

  • An EPA-estimated 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway with the INFINITI QX80.
  • An EPA-estimated 14 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway with the Nissan Armada.

Interior Space

You’ll naturally be looking at the 3-row SUV class to provide plenty of space whether taking cargo between Cincinnati, OH and Florence or accommodating the whole family on a trip into Covington.

Here’s how the INFINITI QX80 and Nissan Armada compare:

  • Maximum Seating Capacity: Up to 8 with the Nissan Armada vs. 7 with the INFINITI QX80.
  • Total Interior Volume: Up to 171.1 cubic feet with the Nissan Armada vs. 152.5 cubic feet with the INFINITI QX80.

  • 8-Inch Touchscreen Infotainment System
  • 360-Degree Top-Down Parking Camera
  • Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking

Feature content runs roughly neck-and-neck, but you’ll tend to find a higher quality of leather and other interior materials with the INFINITI.
