INFINITI QX50 vs Lexus NX

Compare the INFINITI QX50 & The Lexus NX

Gone are the days of the boxy and boring SUV -- there has been a major overhaul in the segment recently to reflect a more modern, agile, and unique sensibility. The INFINITI lineup of SUVs has been at the forefront of the movement, bringing us such sleek, carefully-designed SUVs like the INFINITI QX50. Its profile is enhanced by the details, which include a cutout in the rearmost window that evokes a lightning bolt aesthetic.

It's true that the dynamic appearance of the INFINITI QX50 creates a feeling of complete adoration, and who could blame you? It's clear that the designers took their time because there is nothing rushed about the INFINITI QX50. From one bumper to the other, it stands out against even the strongest competitors, like the Lexus NX. Deciding which model has what it takes where it matters most to you is entirely yours, but we can help you get educated to give you confidence in your pick.

Interior & Features to Keep You Going

Inside the INFINITI QX50, you get to experience premium comfort features and a spacious interior that exceeds the dimensions of the Lexus NX.

  • With seats up, the Lexus NX tops out at 17.7 cubic feet, and 54.6 cubic feet with seats folded. The INFINITI QX50 delivers 31.4 cubic feet of space with the seats up, and 65.1 cubic feet with seats down, leaving enough room for a stroller, gear, and more.
  • Head room in the INFINITI QX50 is a generous 41 inches in the front, and 39.1 inches in the rear. The Lexus NX gets you up to 38.2 inches of front head room and 38.1 inches in the back.
  • Rear legroom is important for those traveling with passengers -- who wants a backseat war over space? If you don't travel with children, but you have tall friends or coworkers, the INFINITI QX50 can give you more rear legroom than the Lexus NX.

Aside from being spacious, an SUV is supposed to be supportive of a growing and busy lifestyle, which is another area in which the INFINITI QX50 excels. This SUV was designed with passengers in mind, delivering features like leather materials, slide and tilt rear seating and an ergonomically-designed cabin. The Lexus NX fails to provide you with Bose® Performance Series Audio System, and heated seats will cost you extra in the Lexus NX, and you'll need to spring for a package to have it included at all.

 

Safety Technology with Your Passengers in Mind

When buying or leasing a new SUV, you want the latest Driver Assist features to keep you safer, but the Lexus NX requires you to splurge for extra packages to get similar features to the INFINITI QX50. There is one thing the Lexus NX cannot offer -- the INFINITI-exclusive ProPILOT Assist that provides a combination of Steering Assist and Advanced Intelligent Cruise Control to further protect you and your passengers.

Features like Predictive Forward Collision Warning and Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection are available on the base trim of the INFINITI QX50, while the Lexus NX doesn't seem to have these available on the base level. Aside from the INFINITI-exclusive ProPILOT Assist, you can also opt for another exclusive package: the INFINITI ProACTIVE and ProASSIST Packages that offer Distance Control Assist, High Beam Assist, and Head-Up Display. The Lexus NX? It doesn't offer those packages.

Performance & Efficiency That Goes the Distance

Both models provide you with the option of front- or all-wheel drive, which is where the similarities end for these two models. All-wheel drive fuel economy in the INFINITI QX50 exceeds that of the Lexus NX, giving you up to 31 mpg highway versus 27 mpg highway. For horsepower, the INFINITI QX50 gives you the chance to enjoy 268 horsepower, while the Lexus NX offers just 235 horsepower. Both 2.0-liter Turbo I4 engines differ in torque as well, with the Lexus NX delivering 258 pound-feet versus 280 pound-feet in the INFINITI QX50.

When you are ready to discuss the next steps in selecting your trim level and packages, our team will be prepared to guide you through the process to help you drive home in confidence.
