With closer inspection, which of these models will live up to all of your expectations?


You will immediately notice differences between the QX50 and the X3 when you compare them next to each other. The 2021 INFINITI QX50 is relentlessly athletic without losing touch with its luxurious side. The rear liftgate has a sporty angle and is topped by a spoiler. This is combined with low ground clearance and lean definition throughout the sides. At the QX50’s front, the LED-outlined headlights, metal-accented grille, and swelling hood contours enhance the QX50’s sporty edge. In comparison, the 2021 BMW X3 combines the athleticism of low ground clearance with the traditional feel of a crossover. This model has a tall stance with an upright liftgate at the rear. The small grille is mounted on a round nose between dual-elemental headlights.


Your model research takes you inside the QX50. This is a two-row crossover that is delightfully appointed with leather seats. With quilted or contrast stitching and a driver-centered center console, the QX50 has high-end, standout styling. Its dashboard has a clean, contemporary look that is defined by stacked display screens. The QX50 and the BMW X3 carry some of the same interior features, but they deliver these features to you in a different way. For example, the X3 has one infotainment system screen. This is topped by traditional interfaces with manual buttons and knobs for the sound system and climate controls.


Power and overall performance abilities for the 2021 QX50 and the 2021 X3 deserve more attention as well. All QX50 trims for 2021 draw 268 horsepower from a 2.0-liter, VC-turbo four-cylinder engine.
