2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2020 Hyundai Palisade | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2020 Hyundai Palisade

Although Hyundai made a name for itself building entry level cars, the company has recently expanded into the luxury SUV segment, and the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is testament to this. This SUV is fabulous on the outside, cushy and comfortable on the inside, and provides great value for the money. But can it compete with the likes of the 2019 INFINITI QX50; an SUV which has completely dominated the market due to its superb safety tech, regal interior and state of the art engine?

Design & Style

The INFINITI QX50 is distinctive for its grille that is double arched, prominent hood and the roof pillar. Inside, passengers will be presented with stitched dash, suede inserts and authentic leather. The designers left nothing to chance, including such details as open pore styled wood with noise cancellation. The Hyundai Palisade looks best in lighter shades. It has a grille with satin finish and lots of chrome along the sides. The taillights in the rear are vertical, and within the cabin passengers can look forward to a horizontal layout with digital displays that are 12.3 inches in size. Leather upholstery is included in the higher trims.

Technology & Safety

The Hyundai Palisade has received praise from the IIHS, earning the coveted Top Safety Pick award. It has the ability to monitor blind spots, parking sensors, emergency automatic brakes, displays which are heads up and a speed delimiter which is automatic. Within the cabin passengers will be treated to Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, the ability to seat eight and a sunroof that is dual panel. The INFINITI QX50 is one of the safest SUVs money can buy, due to safety features such as frontal impact notifications, a camera for the rearview, automated emergency brakes, blind area monitoring and ProPilot Assist, which is a special feature which makes the vehicle semi-autonomous. Passenger perks include climate control that is dual zone, Bluetooth, seats that can be heated and power adjusted and keyless ignition.


The INFINITI QX50 is equipped with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that is capable of generating 268 horsepower. The Hyundai Palisade comes with a V6, 3.8 liter engine that can produce 291 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Both of these SUVs are close in price, luxury features, and size and safety measures. Unfortunately for the Hyundai Palisade, it is not as fuel efficient as the INFINITI, it lacks semi-autonomous driving capabilities, its cabin is certainly not as luxurious, and its trims are limited with infotainment that is lackluster by comparison, so the QX50 is the winner.
