Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is a beautiful package of technological innovations—in places visible and not visible.

Pros
Beautiful, inside and out
Good standard safety tech
Remarkably advanced engine
Good value in top trims
Whisper-quiet interior

Cons
Dual-screen infotainment system
Option packages are walled off in some trim levels
Getting top safety packages requires top trims
Finicky throttle in early, pre-production models

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 ranked #9 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Infiniti QX50 has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 13 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lots of cargo space
Great gas mileage
Spacious, supportive seats

Cons
Uninspiring handling
Disappointing infotainment system

By:

Infiniti’s slinky QX50 is more than just a pretty face—its creased sheetmetal is hiding a revolutionary new powertrain. A quest for increased fuel efficiency led Infiniti to develop a first-of-its-kind variable-compression-ratio turbocharged engine, good for 268 hp and, by Infiniti's estimate, 30 to 31 mpg on the highway.

Pros
Invisible and novel tech;
spacious, refined,
quiet,
and comfortable.

Cons
We anticipated better fuel economy;
the usual CVT complaints.

Nissan has given the Murano's safety game a boost for 2021 by making its previously optional suite of driver-assistance features standard across the range. Called Safety Shield 360, this package of features includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beams, among others. Gone is the SV Premium package and in its place Nissan will offer the Special Edition package, which includes a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree exterior camera system, faux-leather upholstery, heated front seats, and 20-inch wheels.

PROS
Bold styling, well-appointed interior, lots of standard driver-assistance tech.

CONS
Blasé driving dynamics, CVT is unrefined, low towing capacity.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2021 Nissan Murano’s windswept shape still looks good and safety is strong, but it’s showing its age.

PROS
Unique style
Comfy front seats
Plush ride
Lots of active safety gear

CONS
So-so cargo capacity
Interior and tech show their age
Surprisingly thirsty
Not as well-equipped as some rivals
