Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

While the Venza is a new entry in Toyota's 2021 SUV lineup, it revives a name that was retired after the 2015 model year.The new 2021 Venza will slot between the compact RAV4 and the mid-size Highlander SUV in Toyota's lineup. It's based on the Harrier SUV that Toyota sells abroad, which we always thought would make a fine SUV for the North American market; apparently Toyota agrees. Unlike the Harrier, which is sold with both hybrid and conventional non-hybrid powertrains, the U.S. market Venza will be powered exclusively by a hybrid system.

The all-new 2021 Toyota Venza is a hybrid crossover with solid fuel economy ratings, an upscale cabin, and comfortable seats. However, it also has less cargo space than many rivals and lacks athleticism.

Pros
Posh interior
Roomy, supportive seats
Cushioned ride

Cons
Some usability issues with the larger infotainment screen
Subpar cargo capacity and high cargo hold load floor
Not as fun to drive as rivals

Higher cost of entry
Not rated for towing

Looks like a Lexus
Fancy interior finish

Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Less room than RAV4

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.
