Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Infiniti updates the 2021 QX50 lineup with some minor alterations. Every model now comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot, laminated front side glass, and side-mounted airbags in the rear seat. Mineral Black joins the list of optional paint colors, too. Along with heated front seats, the Luxe model now comes standard with more driver assists, as well as a blackout package.

Pros
One of the better-looking crossovers,
quiet and refined manners,
pretty and roomy interior.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds during acceleration,
underwhelming fuel economy,
annoying infotainment details.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Roomy interior with comfortable seating
Lots of cargo space
Easy to get in and out
Quiet at highway speeds

Cons
Inconsistent power delivery due to CVT automatic
Disappointing real-world fuel economy
Steering feels overly light and artificial

Six-way power driver's seat now standard on SES and Titanium trims.Cargo cover and package tray included on SE trim and above.Minor exterior styling changes.

Pros
Above-average cargo space for the class
All-wheel drive can be ordered on every trim level
Widespread availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Sync 3 infotainment interface is fast and easy to use

Cons
Aside from blind-spot monitoring, advanced safety features aren't available
Below-average fuel economy
Base engine can struggle while carrying passengers and cargo
Choppy, jittery ride on most surfaces

Very little is new on the EcoSport for 2021, but it does get an updated appearance package, a standard power driver’s seat on the top SES 4WD trim (oddly, it didn't have one before) , and techy faux-leather seat coverings in the Titanium model.

Pros
Affordable, compact and maneuverable, easy-to-use infotainment.

Cons
Disappointing fuel efficiency, sleep-inducing acceleration, lacks interior space.

By:

The 2021 Ford Ecosport small crossover forsakes its name and doesn’t offer much by way of driving excitement or efficiency.

Pros
Easy to park
Big enough back seat
Cargo space isn’t bad

Cons
No active safety tech
Spartan base model
Hardly a value
Built to a budget
Cheap, but somehow still too much
