Both the Bentayga and QX80 have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Bentayga has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The QX80’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Bentayga. But it costs extra on the QX80.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the Bentayga’s standard Hill Descent Control allows you to creep down safely. The QX80 doesn’t offer Hill Descent Control.

A passive infrared night vision system optional on the Bentayga helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera to detect heat, the system then projects the image on the windshield, near the driver’s line of sight. The QX80 doesn’t offer a night vision system.

For better protection of the passenger compartment, the Bentayga uses safety cell construction with a three-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment. It provides extra impact protection and a sturdy mounting location for door hardware and side impact beams. The QX80 uses a body-on-frame design, which has no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.

Both the Bentayga and the QX80 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

The Bentayga’s standard 4.0 turbo V8 produces 142 more horsepower (542 vs. 400) and 155 lbs.-ft. more torque (568 vs. 413) than the QX80’s 5.6 DOHC V8. The Bentayga W12’s standard 6.0 turbo 12 cyl. produces 200 more horsepower (600 vs. 400) and 251 lbs.-ft. more torque (664 vs. 413) than the QX80’s 5.6 DOHC V8. The Bentayga SPEED’s standard 6.0 turbo 12 cyl. produces 226 more horsepower (626 vs. 400) and 251 lbs.-ft. more torque (664 vs. 413) than the QX80’s 5.6 DOHC V8.

As tested in Car and Driver the Bentayga W12 6.0 turbo 12 cyl. is faster than the Infiniti QX80:

On the EPA test cycle the Bentayga V8 gets better fuel mileage than the QX80 AWD (14 city/23 hwy vs. 13 city/19 hwy).

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Bentayga’s fuel efficiency. The QX80 doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the Bentayga’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The QX80 doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The Bentayga offers optional heat-treated ceramic brake rotors, which last ten to twenty times as long as conventional cast iron rotors, don’t rust, don’t fade during repeated high speed braking, and their lighter weight contribute to better braking, handling and acceleration. The QX80 doesn’t offer ceramic brake rotors.

For better traction, the Bentayga’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the QX80 (285/45R21 vs. 275/60R20).

The Bentayga’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 50 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the QX80’s standard 60 series tires. The Bentayga’s optional tires have a lower 40 series profile than the QX80’s optional 50 series tires.

The Bentayga offers active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The QX80 doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Bentayga uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the QX80, which uses coil springs in front. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Bentayga has a standard driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The QX80’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

The Bentayga handles at .81 G’s, while the QX80 AWD pulls only .72 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Bentayga SPEED executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 4 seconds quicker than the QX80 AWD (24.6 seconds @ .79 average G’s vs. 28.6 seconds @ .57 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Bentayga SPEED’s turning circle is 2.3 feet tighter than the QX80’s (39 feet vs. 41.3 feet). The Bentayga’s turning circle is .7 feet tighter than the QX80’s (40.6 feet vs. 41.3 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Bentayga has a greater minimum ground clearance than the QX80 (9.7 vs. 9.2 inches), allowing the Bentayga to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Bentley Bentayga may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 300 to 400 pounds less than the Infiniti QX80.

The Bentayga is 7.8 inches shorter than the QX80, making the Bentayga easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The Bentayga is 7.2 inches shorter in height than the QX80, making the Bentayga much easier to wash and garage and drive (lower center of gravity).

Unibody construction lowers the Bentayga’s center of gravity significantly without reducing ground clearance. This contributes to better on the road handling and better off-road performance and stability. In addition, unibody construction makes the chassis stiffer, improving handling and reducing squeaks and rattles. The QX80 uses body-on-frame design instead.

The design of the Bentley Bentayga amounts to more than styling. The Bentayga has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .34 Cd. That is lower than the QX80 (.367). A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the Bentayga get better fuel mileage.

The Bentayga has .4 inches more front headroom and 2.1 inches more front legroom than the QX80.

Flexibility is maximized at the game, campground or a drive-in theatre in the Bentayga when its optional tailgating rear seats are deployed, allowing people to sit facing out of the liftgate. (Do not use while vehicle is in motion.) The QX80 doesn’t offer tailgating seats.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Bentayga’s available liftgate can be opened and closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, leaving your hands completely free. The QX80 doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its liftgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the QX80, the Bentayga has standard driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Bentayga offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The QX80 doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Bentayga’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The QX80’s parking brake has to released manually.

The power windows standard on both the Bentayga and the QX80 have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the Bentayga is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The QX80 prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

Optional air-conditioned the front and second row seats keep the Bentayga’s passengers comfortable and take the sting out of hot leather in summer. The QX80 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats for the second row.

The Bentayga’s optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The QX80 doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
