Infiniti offers five trim levels on its 2020 QX50, which is an unusually wide range not matched by most rivals. However, the 2020 Infiniti QX50 doesn’t offer many options, and the automaker bundles features some buyers might want in versions that may bust their budgets.
We rate the lineup at 7 out of 10 on account of the good level of standard features and the bright, large screen, though there’s more than meets the eye here.
The base QX50 Pure lives up to its name with active safety features, synthetic leather trim on its power-adjustable front seats, dual 8.0- and 7.0-inch screens on its center stack, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth, and other features we expect out of a $38,300 crossover SUV (add $2,000 for all-wheel drive).
That’s a good starting point, but if you want adaptive cruise control or the ProPilot Assist suite of driver aids, the QX50 Essential at upward of $45,000 beckons. It also adds a moonroof, heated front seats, and a few other features, though adaptive cruise is part of a $800 package.
At the top of the lineup, the QX50 Autograph features soft leather hides, real wood trim, 20-inch wheels, ProPilot Assist, and a whole gaggle of other features, as it should for more than $60,000 once you’ve ticked every option box.
Infiniti’s dual-screen controls can be a chore to sort through, especially while on the go.
