That the 2014 Infiniti QX50 rides and handles like a high-end car is no surprise, as it’s derived from the exceptionally nice-driving Infiniti G37
sedan. The 3.7-liter V6...
... engine is smooth and responsive and delivers its significant power through an excellent 7-speed automatic transmission, while the well-tuned suspension makes the QX50 one of the most fun-to-drive SUVs we’ve tested. Even better, ride comfort doesn’t take a back seat to performance, although some of the smoothness is sacrificed with the optional 19-inch wheels and tires. Acceleration is swift and steady, the steering has great on-center feel, and the handling response and is remarkable for a vehicle of this size. The 7-speed automatic has a very nifty downshift rev-matching feature that assures smooth downshifts and improved stability. Additionally, Infiniti’s optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system delivers added traction when the surfaces are slick.
