2019 Infiniti QX50 Essential Review Photos

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 has been completely redesigned, and the result is a compact luxury SUV that is far different and more relevant than before. The previous generation of QX50 is a strong but aging and somewhat inefficient SUV with its sporty nature, the all-new 2019 Infiniti QX50 offers more comfort, the latest safety and driver assistance features and an engine optimized for efficiency. With prices starting at under $38,000, the QX50 is also more value oriented in the luxury SUV crossover spectrum. Once a stranger among the 2/5-row luxury SUVs, the QX50 is now a better competitor for more well-known established models such as the Audi Q5, Lexus NX and Acura RDX.

What’s New

The Infiniti QX50 luxury-crossover SUV is all-new for 2019.

Engine

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations, powered by a new 268-hp 2.0-liter four cylinder variable compression ratio engine. This VC-Turbo continually adjusts its compression ratio to optimize both power and efficiency, and is partnered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with manual mode and paddle shifters. Drivers most serious about fuel economy can engage an Eco mode via the drive-mode selector, but it has the uncomfortable tendency to add resistance to the accelerator pedal. The 2019 Infiniti QX50 can tow up to 3,000 pounds when optioned with AWD and the tow package.

2.0-liter variable-compression turbocharged inline-4
268 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm
280 lb-ft of torque @ 1,600-4,800 rpm
0-60 mph: 6.4 second (Essential AWD)
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 24/31 mpg (FWD), 24/30 mpg (AWD)

Trim levels

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is available in three trims: Pure, Luxe and Essential. Standard equipment includes a power liftgate, panoramic moonroof, 19-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlights, LED front fog lights, passive entry/start, leather upholstery and tri-zone automatic climate control, along with HD/satellite radio, Bluetooth wireless phone/audio streaming, four USB ports, smartphone integration, voice-activated navigation and an 8-inch LCD touchscreen display.

Safety features include four-wheel anti-lock brakes with brake assist, vehicle dynamic control with integrated traction control, rearview camera, Predictive Forward Collision Warning and Pedestrian Forward Emergency Braking, as well as eight airbags. Other noteworthy safety technologies offered on the QX50 are an Around View monitor with Moving Object Detection, a lane departure warning/prevention system, blind spot intervention, backup collision intervention, and Intelligent Cruise Control with distance control assist and steering assist.

Interior

The 2019 Infiniti QX50 has been improved significantly thanks to more space. A 38.7 inches of rear-seat legroom and up to 65.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity with rear seats lowered are two of the biggest stats. Beyond the roominess, the QX50 cabin is a nice place to begin your journey, especially if you pony up for the Essential trim. You’ll still be sitting on faux leather with the other trim: Pure and Luxe, but will have to pay extra for heated front seats. The central dash has a high-tech look thanks to twin touch screens, the upper being eight inches and the lower one seven inches. In addition to using the touch screen, functions for audio, phone, navigation and more can be controlled by supplementary dials. Cascading down the sides of the lower screen are even more buttons for fan speed, temperature, and the optional heated and ventilated front seats. It’s a refreshing departure from fully touch-based controls. What can be potentially confusing to use at first is the nub of a gear selector and the P button below it that needs to be pressed to put the vehicle in park.

  • Pure: $37,545
