2017 Infiniti QX50

Pros: Peppy acceleration; nimble, car-like handling; posh, well-appointed cabin; attractive mix of car and SUV attributes

Cons: Small, sloped rear window means poor rear visibility; ride is stiff compared to most competitors

CG Says: The 2017 Infiniti QX50 is essentially unchanged. QX50 is a premium crossover SUV with seating for five. The sole powertrain is a 325-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. Available safety features include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and mitigation, and blind-spot alert. Other available features include surround-view cameras, adaptive cruise control, and power-folding second-row seats. With its smooth, powerful engine and well-appointed cabin, QX50 is a sporty, luxurious alternative to the Acura RDX. Like the Infiniti Q50 sedan’s comfortable, posh interior, sporty performance, and available AWD but need more cargo utility? This premium-compact SUV has you covered. Note that some desirable safety features, including blind-spot alert, require the purchase of expensive option packages.
