Because it shares the same underpinnings and suspension as the G
Sedan, the 2015 Infiniti QX50 rides and drives very much like a high-end sports car. Its 3.7-liter...
... V6 is as smooth and responsive as any we’ve tested and the standard 7-speed automatic transmission delivers seamlessly smooth gearchanges. This transmission also features an advanced downshift-rev-matching feature that assures smooth downshifts and improved stability, but it isn’t as precise as some competitors when it comes to more aggressive driving. The QX50’s sport-tuned suspension allows it to round curves with confidence, but overall ride quality is more jarring than in a Lexus RX or Audi Q5. Off-the-line acceleration, on the other hand, is first-rate, and there is ample passing power as well. Opt for the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system and you’ll find the 2015 QX50 a competent year-round ally.
