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.

PROS
PHEV drivetrain enables limited electric running at speeds up to 135km/h
Excellent blend of everyday comfort, refinement and performance
3500kg towing capacity
It shares its drivetrain with the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid

CONS
PHEV drivetrain adds handsomely to the weight
Li-ion battery robs 70L of boot space
Lacks the traditional hardened performance focus for which Volkswagen R models are renowned

“A curious mix of speed and efficiency with a big dollop of comfort. It's just not especially fun ”

PROS
Comfy,
plush,
quick and a company car bargain

CONS
Not as nimble as a Cayenne

By: 
topgear.com

The VW Touareg R is comfortable, well-equipped and effortless to drive, but not sharp or engaging enough to be considered a true sports SUV. That leaves it in somewhat of a no man’s land. Put simply, those looking for a fast yet relatively frugal sports SUV would be better served by the similarly priced Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid, while those wanting a luxurious and well-rounded plug-in hybrid luxury SUV would be better off with the BMW X5 xDrive45e.

PROS
Well-equipped
Spacious inside for up to five people
Very quiet in electric mode

CONS
Cheap-feeling interior
Fussy infotainment system
Not very exciting to drive
