Infiniti's QX50 dates back to 2008, when it was known as the EX. The current model has a 3-inch-longer wheelbase, which grants more than 4 additional inches to rear-seat leg room. But underneath it's still essentially a raised-wagon version of the old G37 sedan, a car we liked very much at the time for its quickness, agility, and composed ride. Carrying over are the smooth seven-speed automatic and 325-hp, 3.7-liter V6, which remains punchy but tends to be noisy by current standards. Up-to-date safety features include forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assist. A redesigned QX50 is around the corner.
