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

2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2019 Kia Telluride

When it comes to SUVs, few can even begin to match the power or performance of the 2019 INFINITI QX50. Its elegant curvature, state of the art engine and super quiet interior and handling make it irresistible to many drivers. But what happens when it faces off against the Kia Telluride, an SUV which has received lots of positive attention due to its intimidating looks, breathtaking power and an assortment of both safety and luxury features?

Design & Style

The Kia Telluride is a crossover SUV that has three-row seating. It offers much more space than the Sorento and is exceptionally stylish, with unibody construction and a suspension that is completely independent. It can seat a grand total of eight passengers and has ultra-comfortable seats that can be heated or cooled. Outside, the edges are chiseled, with a masculine look overall that will appeal to those looking for something rugged. The INFINITI QX50 is very much the opposite, with a luxurious appearance defined by curves as smooth as an ocean wave. It is a truly magnificent SUV, both inside and out. The stitched dash in the cabin combined with the authentic leather and inserts made from suede give it the look of an automobile designed for the very wealthy, with a cabin that is serene and quiet which completes the driving experience.

Technology & Safety

Those that drive the QX50 will have peace of mind knowing that they are protected by an array of state of the art safety tech, including frontal impact warnings, automated emergency brakes, a camera for the rearview, blind area monitoring, and heads up display and lane control which is active. Inside, passengers will be treated to additional perks such as climate control which is dual-zone, keyless ignition, Bluetooth support, seven-inch infotainment screens and front seats that can be power adjusted. The Kia Telluride has the ability to detect pedestrians, tow up to 5,000 pounds, provide warnings when departing lanes, cruise control that is adaptive and blind area monitoring. Passengers will be treated to touchscreens that are 10.3 inches, Android Auto, and climate control.


The Kia Telluride is equipped with a V6, 3.8-liter engine that can produce 281 horsepower with 262 pounds of torque. The INFINITI QX50 has a turbo 4 engine that can produce 268 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Choosing between these two SUVs is no simple task. Both are stunning, fun to drive, and extremely powerful. Unfortunately for the Kia, it is overpriced when compared to the INFINITI and seems to lack a continuously variable transmission, so the QX50 wins.
