2020 INFINITI QX50 Overview

The Infiniti QX50 sits in the popular compact luxury crossover segment. It competes with the Acura RDX, Cadillac XT4, Lexus NX, Lincoln Corsair, and Volvo XC60. Even though it was all-new last year, Infiniti released two new trims at the top of the ladder for 2020.

All QX50s are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. This marvel of a unit can adjust its compression ratio on the fly to prioritize both power and efficiency. It puts out 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is as high as 26 mpg combined on premium fuel. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) sends power to the front wheels by default, but you can add all-wheel drive (AWD).

Infiniti also revised its InTouch infotainment system for 2020. Consisting of 8-inch upper and 7-inch lower screens, the new setup includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. It also promises to be more fluid and responsive than the last one.

The base QX50 Pure comes with LED exterior lights, a power liftgate, 19-inch alloy wheels, keyless access and start, leatherette upholstery, dual-zone climate control, 60/40 split-folding seats, power front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 6-speaker audio system. The Luxe and Essential trims add items like a panoramic moonroof, LED fog lights, roof rails, heated front seats, and additional safety features.

The new Sensory trim gets you 20-inch painted wheels, a Bose audio system, premium LED headlights, and leather upholstery. The QX50 Autograph comes with darker 20-inch wheels and tri-zone climate control with automatic circulation.

When it comes to safety, the QX50 offers plenty. A reversing camera, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic detection come standard. A 360-degree camera system, a head-up display (HUD), rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors, and blind-spot intervention come with higher trims. Infiniti's optional ProPILOT Assist is a semi-autonomous system that includes adaptive cruise control and active lane centering. The QX50 has not been fully crash-tested by either the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).


Kyree has always been fascinated with the automotive world, especially when it comes to premium European cars. But regardless of the vehicle—whether it's an efficient hybrid or the latest luxury sled—he's always ready to dispense information and advice. These days, he enjoys doing that here at CarGurus.
