The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
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 BMW X3 is one of the sportiest-driving yet most fuel-efficient compact crossovers; and especially if you're not budget-limited you'll almost certainly be happy with its useful technology options and finely detailed cabin.
