2020 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2020 Volvo XC40 | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2020 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2020 Volvo XC40

The release of the 2020 Volvo XC40 has caused excitement among SUV enthusiasts. This is due to its impressive turbo 4 engine, nine-inch touchscreen, and near-futuristic design. But can it compete against the 2020 INFINITI QX50, an SUV which has continued to dominate the landscape due to its state of the art tech, serene interior, and comfort?

Design & Style

The latest edition of the INFINITI QX50 is absolutely gorgeous. The nose is sculpted, with a large grille that proudly showcases the company’s insignia. The external curves are smooth and sophisticated, and within the cabin drivers and passengers will be treated to top of the line trim, including authentic leather with diamond quilting and wood that is open pore. Even blue suede headlines can be added, which creates additional elegance. The Volvo XC40 is designed to be a crossover and features a clamshell hood with a trapezoidal stamp that runs along the bottom. Within the cabin, passengers will be presented with a horizontal dash and vertical touchscreen that is positioned in the center. The seats are quite comfortable to sit in.

Technology & Safety

The Volvo XC40 has been given the Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, which is the result of its many outstanding safety features, such as emergency automated brakes, driver assist, frontal impact warnings, curtain airbags for every passenger and lane control. It also has a semi-autonomous driving mechanism which is referred to as Pilot Assist. Interior perks include seats that can be power adjusted, climate control that is dual-zone and charging for wireless phones. The INFINITI QX50 is well equipped to protect its passengers, with a camera for the rearview, emergency automatic brakes, frontal collision notifications, semi-autonomous operation and cruise control that is adaptive. Cabin amenities include keyless ignition, seats that can be power adjusted, climate control that is dual-zone and Bluetooth support.


The INFINITI QX50 is equipped with a turbo 4, 2-liter engine that is exceptionally formidable. It can generate up to 268 horsepower with 280 pounds of torque. The transmission is continuously variable and comes standard with every trim level. The Volvo XC40 also has a turbo 4 engine that is 2 liter, which is capable of generating 248 horsepower with 258 pounds of torque. It works in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic transmission, along with the all-wheel drive.

The Bottom Line

Both of these SUVs are extremely close across the board, so it is the little things that count the most. For instance, those who have test driven the Volvo XC40 have complained about the shift knob, which can be frustrating to use and it is also annoying that heated seats cost extra, so the INFINITI QX50 wins.
