High school volleyball carpool. My daughter’s friend, the one with the nasty serve, climbs into the backseat of 2019 Infiniti QX50, which is covered in quilted white leather, buckles her seatbelt, and says, “Thanks for the ride, Mr. Oldham. This car feels expensive.”
The newly redesigned QX50 is Infiniti’s latest SUV, one of four from the brand. It’s built in Mexico, and it’s larger than the previous QX50, which was often considered a little too small. It’s a five-passenger crossover that slots between the smaller QX30 and the larger seven-passenger QX60 in the brand’s lineup. And it does feel expensive. Its rich and beautifully detailed interior combines with elegant exterior style, strong performance, and cool tech features. The QX50 competes against the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q5, Acura RDX, Buick Envision, and Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
