2019 INFINITI QX50 vs 2019 Honda CR-V

Serving Troy, MI

Compact crossovers serve a customer base that needs a comparatively affordable vehicle that blends the interior space of an SUV and the fuel efficiency of a small sedan. The 2019 INFINITI QX50 and the 2019 Honda CR-V are two of such vehicles. This model year denotes the start of the QX50’s second generation of production with a complete redesign. The CR-V, which is credited with being one of the first compact crossovers in the market and is currently in its fifth generation of production, does not get a lot of changes. Regardless of what production stage they are in, you should go with the QX50 over the CR-V due to the following reasons:

Engine Output

To their credit, the 2019 versions of the INFINITI QX50 and 2019 Honda CR-V are more fuel efficiency-conscious than entries of previous production cycles, jettisoning gas-guzzling V6s or going with standard continuously variable transmissions, which do not have the energy-consuming gear-shifting mechanism of traditional transmissions. On the CR-V, Honda offers two inline 4-cylinder (I4) engines: a 2.4-liter with 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque and a turbocharged 1.5-liter with 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. However, both are outgunned by the 2019 QX50’s lone engine, which is a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 that produces 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

Passenger Volume

Although both the 2019 INFINITI QX50 and the 2019 Honda CR-V offer two rows to accommodate up to five people, they differ in the amount of passenger volume. The QX50 provides 135.8 cubic feet, which is more than the max passenger space that the CR-V supplies with its EX trim, at 105.9 cubic feet. In fact, as you go up in trim, that amount of space shrinks—to 102.9 cubic feet on the EX-L and to 101.6 cubic feet on the top-level Touring.

Standard Amenities

The standard comfort and convenience features on the 2019 Honda CR-V are rather basic; they include cloth upholstery, cruise control, Bluetooth wireless connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, a four-speaker audio system with AM/FM radio, a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack for connecting portable media devices, and a 5-inch color LCD screen. Since the 2019 INFINITI QX50 is designed and marketed as a luxury crossover, you will get a lot more out of it. So, you can expect leatherette seat surfaces (instead of cloth), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 8-way power-adjustable front seats with driver-side power lumbar support, dual-zone automatic climate control, smart keyless access with illuminated push-button engine start, a manually-adjustable anti-glare rearview mirror, six speakers (instead of four), a CD player, four USB ports (instead of one), a three-month trial access to SiriusXM® satellite radio, a dual color display system that consists of an 8-inch upper screen and a 7-inch lower screen, and the INFINITI controller, which is a control knob for manually executing vital infotainment functions.
