2021 INFINITI QX50 vs Lexus NX

We know that finding a luxury SUV can be challenging, given all of the great options that are on the market today. However, here at Pearson INFINITI, we want to make the entire process as easy as possible by narrowing down the options to two of the top competitors. We're talking about the 2021 INFINITI QX50 and the 2021 Lexus NX. The QX50 comes in with more equipment for the base trim, additional safety features throughout, a towing package with the AWD Autograph trim, and sleek styling that you cannot ignore. Meanwhile, Lexus has given the NX power-folding and self-dimming side mirrors, new exterior paint colors, a low-profile desire for the wiper blades, and blind-spot monitoring as standard. Keep reading down below to find out which vehicle we recommend the most.

2021 INFINITI QX50 Power & Handling

The first thing we're looking at with the QX50 is what kind of standard engine you'll find. We're pleased to report that this luxurious SUV gets you an engine you can rely on. This engine is a 2.0-liter variable-compression turbocharged 4-cylinder, which can output 280 pound-feet of torque and 268 horsepower. Paired with this engine is either front- or all-wheel drive, and a continuously variable transmission. You can even expect to tow up to 3,000 pounds when you do choose all-wheel drive! Let's just say, INFINITI has created something special with this SUV.

2021 Lexus NX Power & Handling

One gasoline engine is available with the Lexus NX. This engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, which offers you 258 pound-feet of torque and 235 horsepower. This is comparably weaker than the power that you'll find with the INFINITI QX50. You'll be able to get this engine with a six-speed automatic transmission, and either front- or all-wheel drive. While this isn't the worst option out there, it can't keep up with the QX50.

2021 INFINITI QX50 Features & Design

The QX50 is more than just a powerful engine with the utility you're looking for. This is a vehicle that offers you a great trim lineup, filled with the kind of technology you need for your busy life. Standard features include a powered tailgate, keyless entry and ignition, active noise cancellation, simulated leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, forward and rearward collision mitigation, and Wi-Fi. Other available features include heated side mirrors, leather seating surfaces, a Bose 16-speaker sound system, ambient cabin lighting, direct adaptive steering, and tri-zone automatic climate control.

2021 Lexus NX Features & Design

The last thing we want to do with the Lexus NX is to discuss the kinds of features that you will be able to find throughout the trim lineup. Some of the standard features include keyless entry and ignition, LED exterior lighting, roof rails, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, simulated leather upholstery, a power-adjustable steering column, and 10-way power-adjustable front seats. Other available features include a powered tilt/slide moonroof, black simulated leather upholstery, a black headliner, and mesh grille.


Although we know that in the end, it's always going to be difficult to find your perfect fit, the 2021 INFINITI QX50 is the best luxury SUV on the market today.
