You can’t go wrong with any of the options from the INFINITI SUV lineup, from the sleek and nimble QX30 to the ultra-luxurious QX80. But what if you’re specifically in the market for something in between a compact crossover and a full-size SUV? The INFINITI QX50 and INFINITI QX60 are probably your best bets.

So what’s the difference between them? We’re glad you asked. Let us break that down for you below.

Comparing INFINITI’s Mid-Level Luxury SUVs

Design

Both the QX50 and QX60 display INFINITI’s signature athletic lines and sophisticated profile. Both models offer bold and intricate grille designs and spacious, comfortable, leather-appointed interiors.

But there are two noticeable differences. The first is that the all-new QX50 has undergone a redesign, leaving it sportier and sharper than ever. The second is a matter of size. While the QX50 turns in 65.1 cu. ft. of cargo space, the QX60 exceeds that with 76.2 cu. ft. and packs an additional row of seating.

Performance

To say that the QX50’s performance is groundbreaking would be an understatement. This compact SUV sports the world’s first production-ready VC-Turbo engine, which cranks out 268 horsepower while maintaining a more-than-respectable estimated 31 mpg in highway fuel economy.

But the QX60 is no slouch, either. This midsize SUV pairs a 295-horsepower V6 engine with available intelligent all-wheel drive for robust, sure-footed performance.

Technology

Appearance and power weren’t the only things that got a boost from the QX50’s makeover. This crossover also got a lot smarter. ProPILOT Assist — which includes Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Steering Assist, and more — is now an available feature.

The new QX60 is at the top of its class, too. Available Backup Collision Intervention and the Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection highlight the 2019 model year.
