The 2019 INFINITI vs. the 2018 Lexus NX: How Do They Stack Up?

Performance

The INFINITI QX50 edges out the Lexus NX’s Turbo Inline-4 engine with the world’s first production-ready 2.0L Variable Compression Turbo engine. This advanced engine can provide up to 265 horsepower and smooth, compelling acceleration.

Fuel Economy

While the INFINITI is the more powerful of the two vehicles, it also secures better fuel economy. The INFINITI QX50 offers up to 24 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway, a solid increase over the 22 city mpg and 28 highway mpg of the Lexus.

The INFINITI’s higher mpg comes from the Variable Compression engine, which adapts performance almost instantly to optimize power and efficiency. These differences add up over time and can potentially save you hundreds over the life of the vehicle.

Storage Space

Even at the luxury levels, SUVs are still primarily utility-focused vehicles. So which option boasts more cargo space and versatility? The INFINITI QX50 offers up to 60 cu. ft. when the rear row is folded down. The Lexus NX falls short with 54.6 cu. ft. of maximum cargo space.
