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.

Warning lights and electrical on dash/console

Absolute worst and most disappointing purchase ever! First BRAND NEW car I’ve ever bought (14miles) as I usually purchase demos or a lightly preowned) and I’ve had nothing but problems. From the tail light having condensation needing to be replaced within just a couple of weeks to my first trip and all of the warning lights going off on the consul. Dealer tried to make the warning lights duplicate - drove the car for 50 miles and it would not happen. Typically my work commute is under 10 minutes each way and on another extended trip of a little over two hours round-trip all of the lights came on again radio won’t work - air won’t either when this happens and I am keep being told by consumer affairs to take it to the dealer not sure how you do that on a Thursday night at 101 PMo. After the error of warnings not being duplicated by dealer they said there is nothing they can do because they don’t know what is wrong although I have videos of each incident occurring. Absolute nightmare since I have purchased it just at one year and under 5500 miles until the first trip when the warning lights went off. Never been so excited only to be a total nightmare. The SOS button you pay for - I was told my the Manager of the dealership it shouldn’t be in the 2020 Qx50 as it doesn’t work and the intouch info won’t even allow you to register because evidently it doesn’t exist either except in the window sticker and the console so absolute disaster of a purchase! Have no confidence of the safety since the warning lights go crazy and don’t even clear when shutting engine off immediately- don’t take a trip over 2 hours ….

4.0

it's not the best Infiniti that I have owned

The tires are very loud creating a lot of noise in the cabin. It does not take bumps very well in sounds like it's bottoming out when you hit the smallest bump. I have had nothing but problems with the navigation and the radio since i got it. If t6hey do not do something to rectify these problems it probably will be my last one.

4.9

No Turbo Engine Lag

Vehicle is dismissed by so call experts BUT my experience with is car is the opposite. Fast, safe on snow+ ice, corners well, comfortable, inexpensive maintenance.
