2016 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 2016 Infiniti QX50 gets a 3.2-inch longer wheelbase that benefits rear-seat passenger room and cargo space. The longer QX50 also has revised exterior styling. Power sunroof and heated front seats are newly standard. 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.
