2020 INFINITI QX50

2020 QX50 Photos
The 2020 Infiniti QX50 is a technological triumph packaged in an assuming but attractive compact crossover body. Shoppers should appreciate the 25-mpg combined fuel economy from its turbo-4, even if they don't give second thought to the complicated componentry engineered for this breakthrough engine design.

New last year, the 2.0-liter turbo-4 has the technology to vary the compression of the cylinders to provide either more power or better fuel economy. This setup is supposedly good for 30 percent better fuel economy compared to Infiniti's regular turbo-4. As with most Nissan and Infiniti products, a CVT is the only transmission choice.

Being only a year into its major redesign means not much has changed on the 2020 QX50. The biggest update is that the infotainment system now has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Other features newly made standard include blind-spot monitors and lane-departure warnings.

Two new trims have become available as well, bringing the total number to six. The carryover trims are Pure, Luxe, and Essential; Sensory and Autograph are new for 2020 and sit atop the QX50 lineup. Pricing ranges from about $40,000 for a base Pure to nearly $60,000 for a loaded-up Autograph.

Full safety data is still unavailable, but what's been performed thus far has been promising. The NHTSA has given the QX50 a five-star overall crash test rating; they also issued the Infiniti four stars for passenger-side impact and rollover tests. The IIHS still hasn't completed its full scope of testing but did award it top marks for the moderate front overlap test and side crash test.

All 2020 QX50s now come equipped with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warnings, and automatic high beams. Optional equipment includes active lane control and adaptive cruise control.

Other than its hallmark engine, the QX50 is a fairly predictable mid-size luxury crossover. It is available in either front- or all-wheel drive, and a slew of trim levels should serve most budgets.
