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. The QX50's infotainment system adds the latest software along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Likewise, the lineup gains some fresh and reshuffled option packages.

Pros
One-of-a-kind engine, indulgent interior, generous cargo space.

Cons
Disappointing fuel efficiency, engine can be noisy, top models get top content.

In the Q3 Sportback, Audi introduces a racier version of its newest upcoming Q3 small SUV, and it's bound to attract plenty of admirers since it gives up very little in the way of space.

Pros
Like a perfectly scaled-down Audi Q8
Great looks inside and out
Premium cabin with new levels of detail and trim work
Fun to drive (both engines)
45 TFSI feels like a proper hot hatch in the corners
Good ride comfort with adaptive dampers
Good safety and tech

Cons
There's a big gap in performance between the 35–45 TFSI
Expect a similar-size gap in prices, too

Automatic gearbox is a bit sluggish
