2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2019 Kia Sportage | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2019 Kia Sportage

The 2019 INFINITI QX50 is one of the most powerful SUVs in its class, with a gorgeous design, excellent safety tech, state of the art engine and library quiet interior. But how does it compare to the 2019 Kia Sportage, a classy SUV that has been lauded for its exceptional infotainment, turbo power and comfortable driving experience?

Design & Style

Visually, the Sportage is one of Kia’s most impressive looking vehicles. It has a shortened wheelbase with a sleek outer body. The alloy wheels are nineteen inches in size, and within the cabin, drivers will be presented with an organized layout that is comfortable and convenient. Unlike many SUVs, the controls aren’t crammed into one place. The INFINITI QX50 is simply breathtaking. Like the Kia Sportage, it uses sleek curves in its exterior, and inside the cabin is full of classy touches which give it a truly dapper feel. Passengers will be treated to authentic leather with diamond quilt and wood that is open pore with headliners made of blue suede. The seats are high density, which means they will remain comfortable even when sitting for long periods of time.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI QX50 is designed to prevent crashes before they occur, but if an impact is inevitable, passengers will be well protected. Aside from its reinforced frame, the SUV is also equipped with emergency automatic brakes, cameras for the rearview, parking sensors, lane control, a display that is heads up, and automatic parking. Interior perks include keyless ignition, eight inch touch screens, 2 zone climate control, leather upholstery and seats that can be power adjusted. The Kia Sportage offers all-wheel drive, blind area monitoring, and emergency brakes. Perks within the interior include air conditioning, seven inch touchscreens, Apple CarPlay, heated seats and USB ports.


The Kia Sportage is equipped with an inline 4, 2.4 liter engine that can produce 181 horsepower with 175 pound of torque. It works in conjunction with an automatic six speed transmission, and has the option of all or front wheel drive. The INFINITI QX50 is powered by a turbo 4 engine that can produce 268 horsepower, which phased out the previous V6 variant. Its new engine is much more advanced, as it uses a variable compression mechanism which gives it a thirty percent fuel economy boost without the need to sacrifice acceleration.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to performance and interior amenities, the QX50 completely outshines the Kia. The Sportage, although good looking, has lackluster fuel economy, inadequate vision and its ability to be configured is limited, so this makes the INFINITI the winner.
