Just by looking at the body of the 2023 INFINITI QX50, you will know that it already has a roomy interior, and a huge cargo area. That said, it is easy to be impressed with what it offers considering its low base price. Heated rear seats are now optional for the ride too.
In the case of the 2022 Buick Envision, expect that it has plenty of safety features to offer as standard. Roomy seats await passengers as well. There are no major changes when compared to its predecessor, though.
Design & Style
With a well-appointed cabin loaded with a wide range of high-quality materials, the 2023 INFINITI QX50 definitely has that appeal that you are looking for in a luxury vehicle. Those wood trim and brushed metal pieces as well as suede leather touches in its upper trims are worth every penny, but no one can discount the fact that the base trim is also loaded with a fresh and cool vibe. With over 31 cubic feet of room in the cargo area, you will appreciate it even more. There is plenty of seat space awaiting its five passengers as well.
For the 2022 Buick Envision, you will find the cabin definitely modern and appealing too. Soft plastic surfaces are there, but the presence of hard plastics can be quite a disappointment. The cargo area loads 25.2 cubic feet of belongings, yet it is still not as big as the one the QX50 offers. While seats are supportive, it can be firm to some extent, bringing discomfort on the part of its users most especially during longer trips.
Technology & Safety
Carrying two sets of touch screens for its infotainment system, it is definitely easy to appreciate the QX50 for its technologies. It has six speakers for its base setup, and can be up to 16 speakers for available options. It has a Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless Apple CarPlay, basic android Auto, and five USB ports, among others. Its list of driver features includes forward collision warning, rear parking sensors, rearview camera, ProPilot Assist, and a whole lot more.
That of the 2022 Buck Envision comes with an eight-inch touch screen as a standard. This is praised for its intuitive menus, but is likewise disgusting for its orientation. It has the same technologies as those found in the QX50 but it misses out on the HD radio. Aside from driver aids that are already part of what the INFINITI offers, it has the Teen Driver and Safety Alert Seat, but does not offer forward and reverse automatic emergency braking.
The 2023 INFINITI QX50 gets its power from a base turbo-four engine that is capable of releasing up to 268 horsepower. That of the same engine loaded under the hood of the Envision, only yields up to 228 horsepower.
The Bottom Line
The INFINITI QX50 is one ride that garners all praises for the aspects compared above. The 2022 Buick Envision struggles to provide what the QX50 does, except may be for its long list of standard driver aids. Nonetheless, it is still the INFINITI that wins this battle.
