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.
