This derivative of the QX50 has a sloped roof that gives it a coupelike appearance.
It uses the same variable-compression 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission as the QX50.
Output is unchanged at 268 hp.
This combination is portrayed as an optimization of performance and fuel economy, but our experience was far from that in the QX50 we tested.
Every QX55 is equipped with all-wheel drive.
The dual-screen infotainment system is compatible with Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay.
FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, and BSW are standard.
The optional ProPilot Assist feature can keep the QX in its lane, and can maintain and adjust speed according to traffic.
