2023 INFINITI QX50 Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

What kind of vehicle is the 2023 Infiniti QX50? What does it compare to?

The 2023 Infiniti QX50 is a small luxury crossover SUV that compares most closely to its own stablemate, the similar-looking and mechanically-related QX55. Other rivals include Audi’s Q5 and the XC60 from Volvo. 

Is the 2023 Infiniti QX50 a good SUV?

Review continues below

The QX50 and the QX55 present a well-equipped decent value in base configuration, but it doesn’t make much sense to spend money to move up the ladder when all trims get the same engine. The pair earns a TCC Rating of 6.0 on a scale of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

What’s new for the 2023 Infiniti QX50?

For 2023, the QX50 comes with the Infiniti Premium Care scheduled maintenance program, with up to three years of inspections, oil changes and tire rotations.

A new grade also joins the lineup for 2023. The QX50 Sport features a new front end design, 20-inch two-tone wheels, and gloss black exterior trim. Inside, semi-aniline leather and Bose audio dress up the cabin. Remote start, wireless device charging, heated outside mirrors, a new auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a Rear Door Alert safety feature are newly standard.

Finally, new Radiant White joins the exterior paint palette, while Pebble Gray and Monaco Red are new interior options.

This review applies also to the Infiniti QX55 model, which is nearly identical to the QX50 aside from its coupe-inspired roofline. Both are five-passenger compact SUVs with appealing exterior styling but an outdated interior, including a twin-screen infotainment setup that still works well enough.

The sole engine is a 268-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged-4 with a technologically advanced variable compression engine system. It should be both more fun to drive and more efficient than it is. The CVT and dull suspension tune contribute to a forgettable driving experience, and EPA ratings are unremarkable, 25 mpg in combined driving for front-wheel-drive models.

Though the cabin design is dated, it’s reasonably pleasant, with great front seats and good space overall. The well-equipped base model means it’s unnecessary to spend any more.

How much does the 2023 Infiniti QX50 cost?

The 2023 QX50 Pure starts out at $41,495 with front-wheel drive and $43,495 for all-wheel drive, and we don’t recommend spending more. Additional trim levels are Luxe, Sport, Sensory and top-tier Autograph, with the latter costing nearly $60,000. 

Where is the 2023 Infiniti QX50 made?

In Mexico.
