2015 INFINITI QX50 vs. Its Competition

2015 Infiniti QX50
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Infiniti QX50 is one of the most driver-focused and enthusiast-oriented vehicles in its segment, and its distinctive styling sets it apart from the crowd.

The BMW X3 is more fuel-efficient, drives well, and offers more room in the back seat and cargo bay.

The Audi Q5 looks and feels great, but it can get expensive quickly, and the ride skews a little harsh at times.

The Volvo XC60 isn't as much fun to drive, but better accommodates the family in a very sleek, stylish crossover.

And, the Acura RDX is like the value choice here, with lots of technology, a nice enough cabin, and decent driving dynamics, without the risk of hitting $60,000 after options.

Quick Specs
The 2015 Infiniti QX50 isn't as useful as many of its competitors, but it's more fun to drive‚Äďand comes with a handsome, well-appointed interior.
A sporty yet smooth driving feel, quiet interior, and top-tier safety all add up to a lot of appeal for the 2015 Acura RDX, although its lack of features and flair stop it short of greatness.
The 2015 Audi Q5 remains one of the most elegant, truly car-like crossovers on the market.
Among compact crossovers, the 2015 BMW X3 doesn't try to be rugged; instead it's one of the sportiest and most fuel-efficient in its class, and this year's new sDrive and diesel models add to that while the lineup gets even more tech and active-safety options.
The 2015 Volvo XC60 crossover stays stylish--and now it gets much better gas mileage from a new four-cylinder engine.
