Infiniti QX50

  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The Infiniti QX50 compact luxury SUV is powered by a 268-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. The variable-compression engine is supposed to deliver the power of a V6 and the fuel economy of a four-cylinder. While its acceleration is competitive, we got just 22 MPG overall in our all-wheel-drive test car. The fit and finish of the interior is impressive and the cabin is quiet and roomy. The QX50 has lackluster, but secure, handling. We found the ride to be mostly calm, but some impacts are stiffer than expected. The convoluted controls are very confusing and distracting. The optional ProPilot Assist feature can keep the car in its lane and maintain and adjust speed according to traffic which can be a convenience in stop and go traffic. Safety features include forward-collision warning, blind-spot warning, and lane-keeping assist.

2014 Redesign Year
Infiniti QX50 2017
Infiniti changed the EX name to QX50 from 2014 onward. The QX50 is an offering in the expanding market for small upscale SUVs. It's essentially a raised wagon version of the former Infiniti G sedan, with which it shares a very nice powertrain. the QX50 handles with agility, but this small pseudo-SUV is quieter and has a slightly more comfortable ride than its sedan sibling. The rear seat, however, is very snug and the cargo area is small. Styling compromised rear visibility somewhat. An optional lane-departure system beeps to remind drivers to keep the vehicle on course.
