2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. Its Competition

2019 Infiniti QX50, first drive
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Infiniti QX50 compares favorably to its class, thanks to its comfort and fuel economy.

The Q5 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-4 and returns up to 25 mpg combined, but its exterior style isn’t as expressive.

The BMW X3 is improved in small ways compared to its predecessor, but costs thousands more than the Infiniti.

The Cadillac XT5 has sharp style, but a cramped rear seat.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is more fun to drive than the Infiniti but asks for compromises in rear-seat space and cargo capacity.

The GLC-Class is an impressive performer, but it’s not as spacious as the Infiniti.
