Infiniti's QX50 dates back to 2008. For 2016 it gets a freshening and a 3-inch-longer wheelbase, which grants more than 4 additional inches to rear-seat leg and knee room. But underneath, it's still essentially a raised-wagon version of the old G37 sedan, a car we liked very much for its quickness, agility, and composed ride. Carrying over is the smooth seven-speed automatic and 325-hp, 3.7-liter V6, which remains punchy but tends to be noisy by current standards. Modest exterior changes include LED daytime running lights, and a new styling treatments. Up-to-date safety features include blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and full speed-range adaptive cruise control with forward-collision warning.
