Both of these stylish and sophisticated vehicles offer a lot to their drivers, but which one seems like the best fit for you?

At Cerritos INFINITI, we’re going to showcase the similarities and differences between the QX50 vs. NX for drivers throughout Mission Viejo, Orange County, and Cerritos.

INFINITI QX50 vs Lexus NX Engine Power & Performance

Oddly enough, the 2020 INFINITI QX50 and Lexus NX each come standard with respective turbo engines that are designed to give the vehicles a boost in output while achieving a remarkable efficiency. The QX50 comes with the newly designed 2.0L VC-Turbo engine, which comes mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission and boasts 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

The Lexus NX also comes with a 2.0L turbo engine, but it lacks the Variable Compression (VC) equipped with the QX50. Because of this, the NX only achieves 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes paired with the less-efficient 6-speed automatic transmission.

Luxury Crossover Cabin Space & Cargo Capacity

One of the biggest appeals to driving a luxury crossover like the 2020 INFINITI QX50 vs. Lexus NX is the ample cabin space to spread out and get comfortable during your trip. Although they’re in the same class, there’s a significant difference between the space that they offer for passengers and cargo.

The QX50 offers 41 inches of headroom in the front row and 39.1 inches in the second. The NX only includes 38 inches of front-row headroom and 38.1 inches in the rear. The QX50 even offers more legroom with 38.7 inches vs. the 36.1 inches in the rear of the NX. The QX50 offers 31.4 cubic feet of cargo space while the Lexus NX only includes 17.7 cubic feet.

Interior Features & Technology

Each crossover offers intuitive infotainment systems within their cabins. The INFINITI QX50 includes the INFINITI InTouch™ Dual Display, which features an 8-inch upper screen and a 7-inch lower screen while the Lexus NX simply features one 8-inch touchscreen. Both crossovers include Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming. The QX50 also comes with a 3-month trial subscription of SiriusXM® Travel Link.
