2019 Infiniti QX50 just arrived

Powertrain: 2.0-liter variable compression turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated at 268 hp. Continuously variable transmission.

Technology: Semiautonomous ProPilot driver assistance monitors the vehicle ahead and lane markers, and helps keep the QX50 centered in its lane at a set distance from the traffic out front — even around curves. Ideal for stop-and-go traffic. The world’s first variable-compression engine in a production vehicle automatically adjusts compression ratio in response to different driving situations, boosting power and fuel efficiency.

Safety: Forward collision warning, lane departure warning, backup collision intervention, intelligent cruise control, forward emergency braking, blind spot warning, surround view monitor

Competitors:Lexus NX, Lexus RX, Audi Q5, BMW X3, Acura RDX, Mercedes GLC, Jaguar E-Pace

Strengths: Responsive steer by wire is an improvement. Competitive fuel economy and pricing compared with chief rivals. Weighs 100 pounds less than outgoing model. Second-row seat slides forward or backward to increase rear-seat legroom or cargo room.

Weaknesses:No Wi-Fi hot spot or park assist. No Android Auto or Apple Car Play capability.

Base price: $ 37,545, including shipping

Bottom line: An overall improvement from the aged, outgoing QX50, with a lot of advance technology that poses a challenge to market. It must now overcome considerable established and new competition in a huge segment where incentives are rising.
