2019 INFINITI QX50 VS. 2019 LEXUS UX | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown


The 2019 INFINITI QX50 and 2019 Lexus UX are two dynamite SUVs which set a new bar in terms of design and performance. In all its glory, the engine used by the QX50 is considered by many industry pundits to be one of the world’s most advanced, while the Lexus UX utilizes a state of the art powertrain which is hybrid electric. Below is a detailed comparison between the two which will help buyers decide which is best.

Design & Style

The styling for the Lexus UX is quite dramatic. It utilizes the spindle grille look which has become a signature for the brand, combining with the hood in a manner that makes the SUV appear longer than it actually is. Its overall length is greater than the GLA or X1, and its most interesting feature is its rear, which showcases LED lighting that extends along the tailgate’s width, ending with elegant fins. The INFINITI QX50 is gorgeous, both in the interior and exterior. It has suede inserts with a diamond stitched trim covered in leather that is natural. The exterior styling uses an open grille, with a hood that is sculpted to perfection.

Technology & Safety

The INFINITI QX50 seats a maximum of five passengers and has sliding seats in the rear which offer lots of space. In regards to safety, it has a warning system for forwarding collisions along with automatic breaks for emergencies. The Lexus UX also comes with lots of tech and safety mechanisms, such as cruise control which is adaptive, emergency brakes, and also the ability to detect pedestrians even in low light conditions. However, buyers do have to pay more to upgrade to high beam headlights that are automated, along with road sign identification.


The fuel efficiency of the INFINITI QX50 does not compromise its performance in any way. It comes equipped with a turbo 4, 2-liter engine which can alter its operation depending on the needs of the driver. It is essentially a smart engine, which is substantially superior to that offered by the Lexus UX. It can produce a maximum of 268 horsepower, while the Lexus UX is limited to a paltry 168 horsepower. While the ability of the Lexus UX to save energy is admirable, it comes at too high a cost.

The Bottom Line

Both the Lexus UX and INFINITI QX50 are stunning in terms of looks, but to know who the winner is, just think about the fact that those buying the Lexus UX will compromise so much in terms of power and performance, and many don’t like its CVT transmission or AWD system. Therefore, the INFINITI QX50 is the clear winner.
