The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2014 Infiniti QX50 has the performance (and attitude) of a sport sedan, along with rich, warm cabin appointments and standout tech; but compared to almost any other crossover its interior isn't very useful behind the front seats.
