2020 Infiniti QX50 Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.6

 The 2020 Infiniti QX50 has a lovely interior with many soft-touch surfaces and quality materials. The seats are comfortable and supportive, and both rows provide ample head- and legroom, even for taller occupants. The QX50’s roomy cargo area is another highlight, though its confusing dual-screen infotainment system is not.

  • "Inside, the QX50 can be fitted with quilted leather seats, wood interior trim, and a faux-suede headliner. However, these upscale appointments are available only on the most expensive model." -- Car and Driver
  • "It's sumptuously appointed, with pliable leather surfaces and pleasant organic curves throughout. The optional 16-speaker Bose sound system offers a satisfying auditory experience, beautifully quilted seats cradle occupants pleasantly and seat cooling fans do their job very effectively. It's almost a ridiculous level of comfort, with surfaces comprised of cowhide, wood, brushed aluminum and at least two colors of suede." -- Autoblog (2019)
  • "Once you've made yourself at home in the QX50's billowy chair and start the engine, you're greeted with two infotainment screens. The top one displays a map, the lower one cycles through menus including climate control, map control and audio control. Both are rendered in an unimpressive resolution you'll recognize from that old Garmin you had suction cup'd to your windshield five years ago." -- Jalopnik (2019)

Seating

The QX50 is a luxury two-row SUV with five seats. The sculpted front seats are very supportive, and they remain comfortable on longer trips. The rear seats earn praise for their abundant passenger space, making this row suitable even for taller occupants.

Synthetic leather upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable front seats are standard. Leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

For securing child safety seats, the QX50 has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats.

  • "Still, every QX50 has a comfortable and quiet cabin that includes a spacious second row with reclining seatbacks that have so far been the highlight of the 2019 QX50 in our long-term test fleet." -- Car and Driver
  • "The head- and legroom are good throughout for most people, but very tall passengers face a few challenges. If the panoramic sunroof is present, rear passengers might have to move the seatback to one of its nine recline positions to avoid brushing up against the headliner. Hard front seatbacks and lack of toeroom will affect tall rear passengers behind similarly tall front occupants, but both can be worked around with minimal manipulations." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "There's good stuff inside, with super-comfy zero-gravity seats. The name may be a bit of hyperbole, but make no mistake, these chairs are incredibly supportive and by far my favorite seats in this segment." -- CNET (2019)

Interior Features

The QX50 comes standard with Infiniti’s InTouch dual-screen infotainment system, which features 8-inch (upper) and 7-inch (lower) touch screens. Other standard equipment includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, four USB ports, a six-speaker stereo, a CD player, satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, and push-button start. Available features include a 16-speaker Bose stereo and navigation.

Most critics do not like this dual-screen setup. The control layout isn’t intuitive, the low-resolution graphics are outdated for a modern luxury vehicle, and the on-screen menus are confusing.

The QX50 has a variety of standard and available safety features. All models are equipped with a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front and rear collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlights.

Available safety features include front parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive pivoting headlights, a head-up display, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and lane keep assist. Also available is ProPilot Assist, a semi-autonomous driving mode for the highway that manages vehicle speed, steering, and braking.

  • "The dual-touch screens for infotainment and climate control can be a bit slow to respond and have an almost aftermarket look not nearly as polished or integrated as similar systems in Audi and BMW cars. On the up side, there are plenty of redundant knobs for volume, tuning, temperature and fan speed." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Perhaps worst of all, the fonts on the two display screens are different! … It cheapens an otherwise lovely interior because you are always reminded that one screen was sourced 10 years before the other. That decade-old map software is not atrocious, but it's worse than all the competition, save for Lexus. And like Lexus, Infiniti weirdly refuses to put current mapping technology into its vehicles. … Then there's the lower touchscreen, which is controlled not by the rotary controller (that's for the top screen) or even by touching it (because it is after all a touchscreen) but by a bunch of plastic buttons below the bottom screen. And on the sides. The whole mess makes no sense." -- Motor Trend (2019)
  • "The hardware of the dual screens actually works quite well once you get accustomed to it, but the software running behind the scenes desperately needs an update. Not all menus are logically arranged and the system's graphics are decidedly last-decade, particularly for the embedded navigation." -- Left Lane News (2019)

Cargo

The Infiniti QX50 has 31.4 cubic feet of cargo space with its rear seats upright and 65.1 cubic feet of space with these seats folded. The optional moonroof drops these capacities slightly to 31.1 and 64.4 cubic feet, respectively. Nevertheless, the QX50 has the largest cargo hold in the luxury compact SUV class. A power liftgate is standard, and a hands-free power liftgate is available.

  • "We managed to fit nine carry-on suitcases with the seats up and 22 with them down. Both results were two more than the BMW X3 held." -- Car and Driver
  • "Unlike the previous QX50, rear seat and cargo room is spacious. Either can be improved at a moments notice thanks to a sliding second-row bench. For maximum cargo capacity, the QX50's rear seats can fold flat." -- Left Lane News (2019)
  • "Cargo room, another area where the latter QX50 was hampered, has also been improved. Whereas the previous QX50 maxed out at just over 50 cubic feet of capacity with rear seats folded, the new one expands to over 65. Both these figures put the new QX50 at or among the top of its class." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
