What do you like/dislike about the Infiniti QX50?

To start, i love how sporty it is, much like a sports sedan in some ways. Dislike how tight it is in the back seat, also poor cargo space.

I thought there would be a good amount of cargo space. Will it be a problem lugging around hockey equipment and other large items?
@ 0:39 you guys will see what sort of cargo space you have to work with, it's clearly not a lot but enough for the average american family that would be using this vehicle, plus it has powered folding rear seats

I would be nice to have power folding seats because i always find it difficult to figure out how to fold down the seats properly in vehicles. It is less cargo space than i was expecting, but it should be enough space for most stuff i need to do. There just might not be much room to spare in those cases when you do have a lot of stuff.

I've never heard of the power folding seats before though. Is this a new thing, or am I just out of the loop?

the problem with folding the seats is actually finding the lever to do it, so even if there was a button i think it would still have people hunting for it.

I'm interested in this vehicle because it isn't quite as big as Infiniti's biggest SUVs. Not too big, not too small, just right. Besides that I just like the look of Infiniti cars. Infiniti is a luxury brand on the rise, and I would be happy to jump on board.

Plus, the array of options that I will get to choose from will make me like a kid in an (expensive) candy shop.

What would you need the QX50/EX for?
I wouldn't say they're a brand on the rise, they are a well established Japanese luxury car brand, they're just trying to improve the brand, making it more competitive.

I feel like the design could be a bit more updated along side the new Infiniti designs. The QX50 looks very similar in the front to the EX.

you'll have to wait for a mid-cycle refresh or the next generation model, they're just renaming cars for now.

It needs to be refreshed. That is my complaint. The interior needs to be refreshed. It needs some more of the safety and tech features from the JX carried down to keep up with the market.

Funny that they are just renaming the cars for now, as if that has something to do with how much people will like them.

I would vote for a bit of an update on the styling of the QX50. Something that is a bit more aerodynamic looking with a less round and more sleek front end. Headlights can stay though, I like those.

Well its better to rename them all at once then to rename them as thier mid-cycle refreshes come out. Imagine the Havoc trying to figure out which letters belong to who?

And realistically Infiniti cant redesign all their cars at once, they have one design studio thats busy enough, Q50 just showed up, Q30 is in the works, i think next up is Q70 for a facelift, theres a halo car the Q90 in there somewhere, QX60 wont need an update for a while so at least thats a break for them but then they need to work on QX50, QX70 and figure out what will happen with QX80....

so yea, patience..

That will all possibly happen next year when the Q50's actually get a refreshed look rather than just carrying on a new badge.

Q50's already have the new look, it came out as a totally new vehicle. Although it is the G sedan successor, the G sedan still sells in Infinti dealers alongside the Q50.

plus they have to keep each vehicle running on a consistent generation cycle so some cars wont be redesigned for a while, it just too bad this isn't happening sooner.

Yeah the Q60 is one of those not being redesigned for a while, if you consider 2 years to be a while....

Some people seem to think with a lot of models being renamed, cars are getting redesigned as well, not the case.

If Infiniti wanted to make a huge impact on the industry they should have refreshed all of their cars at the same time along with their rebadge. And put all the previous cars on heavy discount.

True but to have all of their lines come out with a refresh is hard. they have way too many vehicles. If it were only a couple there would be a good arguement. I agree with you though. This rebadge thing is rediculous they should have just waited till the new refresh and then implement the new names.

The new names make more sense, but it is always a confusing move for consumers to rename your products. It doesn't make it any more easy to differentiate between models when they all are named with letter/number combinations instead of actual names.

I think Infiniti is planning on doing some updating to all its vehicles, but these things take time. We will have to wait for them to get around to all of the vehicles. The whole process will still take a few years yet.
