Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar takes chances in its exterior and interior and wins spectacularly. It’s a new benchmark for the luxury SUV company.

Pros
Gorgeous shape
Adjustable and capable air suspension
Modern and sleek interior
Opulent interior...
…made better by extra-cost cloth fabric

Cons
Six figures for a mid-size SUV is a thing now
Engines feel old now
Big wheels = tough ride
Did someone say more for cloth?
Just enough second-row space

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.
