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

Remarkably advanced engine
Good value in top trims

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

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.

The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid ranked #4 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Toyota Highlander Hybrid has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 35 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Good fuel economy
Strong acceleration
Many standard driver assistance features

Cons
Lackluster handling

By: 
usnews.com

Pros
Handling
V-6 gas mileage
Consistent cabin quality in first and second rows
Handy dashboard device tray
Huge storage bin between front seats
Power-adjustable cushion length available (driver's seat)

Cons
Sluggish acceleration from a stop (V-6)
Firm, busy ride
Vague steering feel
Whistling sound at highway speeds
Small third row
Apple CarPlay, Android Auto not offered

The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid receives no significant changes.The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with a good amount of standard equipment in the base LE trim. But we recommend upgrading to the midlevel XLE. On top of the standard systems such as forward collision mitigation and lane departure intervention, the XLE gets blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as well as the upgraded 8.1-inch touchscreen.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover
Just-right size for many families
Added peace of mind from standard accident-avoidance tech
Quiet and compliant ride

CONS
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors
