2020 INFINITI QX50 review: Our expert's take

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.

Love my qx50

After owning other luxury brands and having to make trips to the dealerships for issues was a constant time consuming thing we had to deal with in between services. I’m happy with my infinity qx50 looks sleek and very comfortable for my bad back.

4.0

2020 QX50 SUV

The vehicle is somewhat underpowered, would have been better served with the stronger, 3 liter twin turbo that comes in the Q50 (my wife has this vehicle). Also, the heated outside mirrors should be STANDARD equipment, this more important than apple car play or illuminated kick plates.
