INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus NX

If you spend much time behind the wheel, why not spend that time in luxury? That’s what many motorists have decided and why sales of luxury vehicles have never been healthier than they are now. People in the market for a luxury vehicle often turn to Lexus – the luxury brand of the Japanese motoring giant Toyota – when they are looking for a classic luxury car.

Did you know that Nissan has its luxury vehicle brand too? Well, it does, and it is called INFINITI and is a brand that recently celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. The INFINITI brand makes vehicles that are just as luxurious as Lexus. Still, without the premium price, you pay just for the privilege of driving a vehicle with the Lexus badge emblazoned upon it.

To convince you that INFINITI vehicles are just as luxurious and dynamic as their Lexus counterparts (and indeed, in many aspects, are an upgrade), we will directly compare two equivalent vehicles. It’s time for our INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus NX comparison.

INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus NX – A Direct Comparison of Price, Power, and Performance

Of course, the purchase of a luxury vehicle is inevitably likely to hit your bank account hard. That does not mean you should splurge for the sake of it, and remember that a decent chunk of the purchase price of a Lexus NX is the Lexus badge itself. While the price difference between the INFINITI QX50 and the Lexus NX is not as stark as the difference when comparing other equivalent INFINITI and Lexus models, you are still likely to pay more for the Lexus NX than you are for the INFINITI QX50.

In terms of power, there is no doubt that the Lexus NX is the less powerful vehicle out of the two, although the Lexus NX is the less hungry in terms of fuel consumption. The Lexus NX has a 2.5-liter I4 engine, compared to the INFINITI QX50’s 2.0-liter I4 turbo. The INFINITI QX50, though, can generate 268 hp with 280 lb-ft of torque, compared to the Lexus NX’s wimpish 203 hp with 184 lb-ft of torque. If you want to feel the power under your pedal, then the choice here is obvious – go for the INFINITI QX50.

Continuing the INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus NX Comparison – Which is the Better Vehicle?

In terms of comfort and space, the INFINITI QX50 is the winner. With all the seats in place, the INFINITI QX50 can offer you a maximum of 31.4 cubic feet of storage, which easily beats the Lexus NX with only 22.7 cubic feet of space. If you fold down the second row of seats, though, the available space for both vehicles is identical at 65.1 cubic feet.

Regarding legroom, the front legroom for both vehicles is the same, but moving to the second row, the INFINITI QX50 again is the winner – 38.7 inches to the Lexus NX’s 36.1 inches. Tech-wise, both vehicles come Apple CarPlay and Android Auto ready, although the INFINITI QX50 has in-car WiFi, which the Lexus NX lacks. The Lexus NX does have the larger infotainment screen, though – 9.8 inches to 8 inches.

Instead of taking our word for it, why now find out just how fantastic the INFINITI QX50 – or any INFINITI vehicle – is to drive by contacting the Charlie Clark INFINITI dealership in El Paso?

INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus RX350

The Lexus name automatically springs to mind when people consider purchasing a luxury vehicle. The luxury vehicle market is much more saturated than you may realize. There is now a luxury brand for nearly every automobile manufacturer that you can think of.

Nissan has been in the luxury act for some time with their INFINITI brand. Created primarily for the North American market in 1989, Nissan’s INFINITI brand has been selling high-quality luxury vehicles for over thirty years.

Suppose you are thinking of purchasing a Lexus as your new luxury vehicle. In that case, it will not hurt you to at least look at Nissan’s INFINITI vehicles, particularly if you want to make a substantial saving on the MSRP. Here we make a direct comparison of two comparable luxury vehicles – INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus RX350 – to see which vehicle comes out on top.

Luxury Vehicle Comparison – INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus RX350 – Who is the Winner?

People buy luxury vehicles for that luxury feel as opposed to a cramped car that they can barely squeeze into, and here both vehicles have plenty to offer. Both front and rear passengers in the INFINITI QX50 and the Lexus RX350 have plenty of legroom, and both cars will be a hit with tall drivers as they have plenty of front headroom too. No matter your choice, sliding into the front seat of the INFINITI QX50 or the Lexus RX350 will leave you feeling that you’re at the height of motoring comfort and luxury.

That luxurious feel extends to all passengers you may take along in your INFINITI QX50 or Lexus RX350, but when it comes to luggage capacity, the INFINITI QX50 is a clear winner. The RX350 can only offer a tight 32.6 cubic feet of luggage storage, which is significantly less than the INFINITI QX50, which can provide around 64.4 to 65.1 cubic feet of luggage storage, so if you are constantly hauling around suitcases as you hop from city to city, the INFINITI QX50 would be of considerable benefit to you.

Continuing the INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus RX350 Comparison – Power and Performance

Both the INFINITI QX50 and the Lexus RX350 come with the options of AWD and FWD. In terms of engine size, the Lexus RX350 does have the more powerful engine, but such is the performance of the INFINITI QX50 that it’s a difference that is barely noticeable. The RX350 has a 3.5-liter V6 cylinder engine coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission capable of 295-hp. This is compared to the INFINITI QX50’s 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with continuously variable transmission that can make 268 hp. This power – as well as the Lexus name – is what you pay that extra $5,000 for when comparing the MSRP of the Lexus to the INFINITI QX50, so you have to ask yourself, is less than 30hp extra worth the outlay, especially as the QX50 has a significantly smaller turning circle that the Lexus RX350, making it much easier to maneuver. The INFINITI QX50 is also eight inches shorter than the Lexus RX350, making parking much simpler.

The INFINITI QX50 is the winner in several categories in our INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus RX350 comparison, primarily in the manufacturer’s suggested retail price and luggage capacity. Why not discover the brilliance of the INFINITI QX50 yourself? Visit the Charlie Clark INFINITI EL Paso dealership, check our inventory online, or – even better – call us to get the ball rolling on your INFINITI conversation.
