The Infiniti carmaker has presented its all-new 2019 Infiniti QX50 plus it looks better than ever before. It represents the second generation of this model and includes changes in styling, equipment, and engine. The QX50 has gotten a more vertical look, quality and luxurious interior equipped with a number of advanced technologies.
Aside from the changes in design, the Infiniti QX50 has received the world’s first variable-compression powertrain which enhances either power or fuel efficiency, depending on what you need in a moment. Furthermore, it comes in 3 different trim levels, which are all very well equipped.
2019 Infiniti QX50 Specs and Overview
The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is currently entering its second generation and it has been revised and has received some new details borrowed from other Infiniti models, the QX30, and QX60. The front end features a more sculpted hood, big and more spacious honeycomb grille, and much more chrome therapy. The higher trim levels, such as Pure and Essential come with roof rails too. The exact same is expected for the panoramic moonroof.
The QX50 rides on the conventional 19-inch metal wheels while the bigger 20-inch wheels are optional to the vital version. Long story shorter, the 2019 Infiniti QX50 comes quite differently compared to its first production model but we must admit that it looks very handsome and attractive.
Interior Design and Features
The interior of the 2019 Infiniti QX50 looks very amazing. It is classy, quality, luxury and that which has impressed us the most are an impeccable comfort and silent cabin. The QX50 has two rows of seats and can carry five passengers comfortably. The front seats are supportive, flexible and highly comfortable. And all the models include power-adjustable front seats. The rear seats aren’t as cozy as the front ones, however, are just fine.
Behind the rear seats, the Infiniti offers the cargo space of 38.7 cubic ft. However, the next row can be folded which provides the space of 64.4 cubic feet. Furthermore, thanks to the normal noise cancellation, the QX50’s cabin is extremely quiet. In the center on the dashboard, there is a dual-screen, an 8.0-inch and a 7.0-inch display for the infotainment system.
Equipment and safety features
The new 2019 Infiniti QX50 is going to probably be available in three trim levels. There is a base Pure, mid-range Luxe, and the range-topping Crucial. Sad to say, the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity will not be accessible in almost any trim level. The Luxe trimming will include blind-spot tracks, a power-operated panoramic moonroof, LED fog lights, auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink universal garage-door opener, and roof rails. The heated seats will also be offered.
Stepping up to the range-topping Essential trimming level will include leather upholstery, navigation, a surround-view camera, remote start, a motion-activated liftgate, and heated side mirrors. On the other hand, the vital model will also offer many optional features. These are three-zone climate control, a head-up display, and a premium Bose audio system with 17 speakers. The Autograph package will also add quilted leather chairs and blue Ultrasuede interior trim. Furthermore, the ProPilot Assist system will soon be available for the range-topping trim only.
Speaking of the security, the base model features a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, airbags, traction and stability control, and forward collision warning as regular. The Luxe trim will add blind-spot monitors while the Essential comes standard with a surround-view camera as well. There will be two optional packages too. The first one will include parking sensors and adaptive cruise control. The next package will include a semi-autonomous system known as the ProPilot Assist which offers active lane controller, automatic parking, and a head-up display.
2019 Infiniti QX50 Engine
Under the hood of the 2019 Infiniti QX50, a new and enhanced engine is going to be placed. The maker claims to be the world’s most sophisticated engine. This mill will work in a way to supply more electricity or to conserve fuel. This powertrain is the first variable-compression engine made for masses. It is a 2.0-liter inline-4 variable-compression turbocharged engine that is able to create 268 horses and 280 pound-feet of torque.
On the other hand, the all-wheel-drive installation is also available. Equipped using the all-wheel-drive system, the Infiniti QX50 will be able to tow up to 3,000 lbs. The all-wheel-drive version is rated at 24 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg combined.
