The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Infiniti QX50 isn't as useful as many of its competitors, but it's more fun to drive–and comes with a handsome, well-appointed interior. The 2014 Audi Q5 gets quite serious about fuel economy with TDI power; it's still one of the most elegant, truly carlike luxury crossover SUVs.
