Infiniti expands the 2020 QX50 lineup with two new trim levels and newly standard equipment. The Sensory and Autograph models now top the QX50 pyramid with the most desirable features. Every version now has driver assists that include automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, rear automated emergency braking, and rear cross-traffic alert.
