The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Infiniti QX50 finally lives up to its billing as a sport-utility vehicle—with a tilt toward the sporty side. As a tangential—and far more sophisticated—replacement for the GLK, the savvy 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC is a far better match for American wants and needs.
