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.

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

Toyota is introducing the TRD Off-Road model for 2020, which comes with unique 18-inch wheels, all-terrain tires, a TRD Off-Road suspension kit with red coil springs, and plenty of TRD logos dotting the interior and exterior. Elsewhere in the lineup, Android Auto capability becomes a standard feature as does SiriusXM satellite radio; XLE models now come with a power-adjustable driver's seat but lose the standard moonroof, which becomes part of the optional Convenience package. The mid-range Adventure model gains a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, but that model's power liftgate is now optional. Limited trims now come with the premium JBL audio system as standard.

Pros
Rugged styling, available hybrid model, plenty of standard safety tech.

Cons
Overly spartan base model, rough-edged engine noise, mundane driving dynamics.
