Just when you thought the crossover market couldn’t get any more crowded
You are here
The Top Gear car review:Infiniti QX50
For:Exclusivity, hot hatch-worrying performance, and a nice man at the dealer to look after you
Against:It’s expensive. And odd
What is it?
A posh crossover with a fast V6. Infinitis might be upmarket Nissans, but peel back the QX50’s metalwork and you won’t find a Qashqai. Instead, it shares a platform with the old G range. So there’s some performance breeding going on here, although the styling doesn’t really allude to it. It’s expensive compared to other crossovers, even BMWs and Audis, but that buys you exclusivity. These things are rarer than Hawaiian Monk Seals. Probably.
