The Infiniti QX50 has an all-new, innovative engine and a roomy, quiet, and well-furnished interior. But the engine doesn’t provide the promised performance or fuel economy gains, and the controls are confusing to use, all of which combined to leave us underwhelmed. This SUV is the replacement for the EX, which was renamed the QX50 in 2014; It’s now a more competitive option among luxury compact SUVs.
