Infiniti QX50

Segment: Mid-sized CUV

Drivetrain option(s): RWD/AWD

Powertrain(s): Gasoline

Redesign 2018

The redesigned QX50 is the world’s first production vehicle with a variable-compression engine, using technology that Nissan Motor Co. worked on for about 20 years. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo increases the vehicle’s fuel economy to a combined rating of 27 mpg for the front-wheel-drive configuration -- 35 percent more than the outgoing model -- while offering the power of a six-cylinder engine. With few obvious changes from the concept version unveiled in January 2017, it adopts Infiniti’s “powerful elegance” design language, including a crescent-shaped D-pillar similar to that of the QX60.
