Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Infiniti QX50 puts handling atop the SUV priority list, but that's not as wrong as it sounds.The Infiniti QX50 has been around, in one form or the other, for a decade. It's still here thanks to strong fundamentals: there are bits and pieces of Q50s and 370Zs under its skin, and that gives it an engaging feel that's still head and shoulders above some its its key rivals.
It returns for its 10th model year in just two forms, as the rear-drive QX50 or as the all-wheel-drive QX50 AWD.

Pros
Sport-sedan handling
Shape's still sleek
A richly appointed cabin
Supportive front seats
Finally, a more usable back seat

Cons
Cargo space behind the second row is small
Engine noise
No paddle shift controls
Even with surround-view cameras, visibility isn't great

The 2017 Infiniti QX50 ranks 10 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Infiniti QX50 has a powerful V6 engine, handles more like an agile car than an SUV, and has one of the lowest base prices in the class. Many class rivals have better mpg ratings and more cargo space, however, and the QX50's design is getting a little stale, both inside and out.

Pros
Powerful engine
Low starting price
Agile handling

Cons
Poor fuel economy
Subpar cargo space
Aging design

With the 2017 Infiniti QX50, you get a driving experience that's more sport sedan than sport-utility. But the QX50 falls behind in other areas that are likely more important for a luxury crossover SUV.
The QX50's optional 19-inch wheels are now available separately for 2017.

Pros
Powerful standard V6 engine
Responsive handling more akin to a sport sedan than a sport-utility.

Cons
Limited cargo space
That standard V6 engine is pretty thirsty
All-or-nothing option packages mean you'll probably pay for things you don't want
Dated interior controls.
