2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Equinox | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2019 INFINITI QX50 is a star performer. It is gorgeous within the interior and exterior, offers robust safety tech, and has an engine which is extremely advanced. Combined with the trim and quiet cabin, there are few SUVs that can match it. However, the introduction of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, with its formidable engine, turbo diesel fuel efficiency and superb design has many wandering which of the two SUVs is superior.

Design & Style

The Equinox has an updated exterior, with a cabin that is sharp and attractive. The grille has been closed so that it has become one piece that is unified, with chrome surrounds on bottom. Its most notable feature is a line that extends from the arch of the front wheel, splitting within the center. The INFINITI QX50 features a grille with a double arch, a pillar kink at the rear of the roof and inside, diamond quilting and authentic leather which makes it a sight to behold. The nose is well sculpted and the hood is more aggressive than previous editions.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI QX50 is designed to prevent crashes, and accomplishes this with warnings for frontal collisions, emergency automatic brakes and its rearview camera. It also monitors blind spots, offers sensors for parking and has an advanced featured called ProPilot Assist that provides displays which are head up along with automatic parking and lane control that is active. Within the cabin, the QX50 spares no expense, offering its passengers perks such as Bose audio, wood which is open pore, leather seating, a lift gate which is motion activated, heated steering wheel and seating.

The Chevrolet Equinox has received positive feedback both from the NHTSA and IIHS with regard to its safety. It has performed well on crash tests but its headlights have been described as marginal. It has many of the same countermeasures as the QX50, including frontal collision warnings, emergency automatic brakes and lane control which is active. Within the cabin, passengers can look forward to Bluetooth support, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, keyless ignition, USB ports, and wireless charging for phones.


The Chevrolet Equinox comes with 2 liter, 4 cylinder engines that are turbocharged. It can produce 170 horsepower with 203 pound of torque. The QX50 comes with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can produce 268 horsepower, which is substantially greater.

The Bottom Line

Although these two SUVs are well matched when it comes to their interior amenities and safety devices, there is a considerable difference in performance. The INFINITI is simply more powerful when it comes to its engine, and because the Chevrolet Equinox also falls behind when it comes to fuel efficiency and cargo space, the QX50 is the winner.
