2019 INFINITI QX50 First Drive

Kelsey Mays

CARS.COM — It's hard to get too excited about the redesigned Infiniti QX50, a smallish luxury SUV with promising technology and a lush interior but notable warts past that. Put it all together, and Infiniti's latest redesign is a middling choice in a crowded vehicle class, especially if your budget precludes all the bells and whistles.

After skipping the 2018 model year, the QX50 returns in redesigned form for 2019. I spent a day and a half driving an all-wheel-drive QX50 Essential at Infiniti's Los Angeles-area media preview. (Per company policy, Cars.com pays for its airfare and lodging at such automaker-hosted events.) Officials said the SUV should hit dealerships in late February or early March, and it will come in three trim levels (Pure, Luxe and Essential) that range from about $37,500 to nearly $60,000 with all major options. The spread is a bit pricier than the outgoing QX50 but still a slight value against a four-cylinder Audi Q5, BMW X3 or Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class — just a few of the QX50's many rivals.

Doozy of a Drivetrain

Out goes the old QX50's big V-6, replaced by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine (268 horsepower, 280 pounds-feet of torque) with a high-tech variable compression ratio that drives the front or all four wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission. As such, the QX50 charges up steep inclines and makes quick work of freeway o... Read More

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
