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: 
usnews.com

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.
