2020 INFINITI QX50 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Infiniti QX50?

Introduced last year, the Infiniti QX50 is a recent addition to the highly competitive compact luxury SUV class. Offered with front- or all-wheel drive, the five-seat QX50 is powered by a 268-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Competitors include the Acura RDX, Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60.

What’s New on the 2020 Infiniti QX50?

A new generation of the dual-screen InTouch multimedia system includes HD displays and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Infiniti has also bolstered the QX50’s lineup of standard safety content with the addition of blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, high-beam assist and rear automatic braking. Two new high-end trim levels – Sensory and Autograph – are also available.

What Features in the 2020 Infiniti QX50 Are Most Important?

Despite its modest overall dimensions, the QX50 offers a surprising amount of interior space. This is also true for the cargo area, which measures 31.4 cubic feet. A turbo four-cylinder is the only engine available, but it’s powerful and relatively efficient. Other standard active safety features include forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking.

Should I Buy the 2020 Infiniti QX50?

The QX50 should certainly be on your shopping list if you’re considering a smaller luxury SUV that’s good on gas and comes with plenty of tech touches. Its handling isn’t the best, but it managed a respectable third-place finish in our luxury compact SUV comparison test.

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.
