2020 INFINITI QX50 vs. Nissan Murano | Edinburg, TX
In the market for a luxurious, family-friendly crossover? Add the 2020 INFINITI QX50 to the top of your list. But how does it compare to the 2020 Nissan Murano, one of the segment’s most beloved options? When you compare the two side by side, the INFINITI QX50 clearly emerges as the victor in terms of power, comfort, and luxury appointments.
Under the hood
Performance is where the 2020 INFINITI QX50 truly shines. Motivated by a 2.0-liter Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) inline four-cylinder engine that is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission, the QX50 serves up 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 Murano simply can’t compete: Though powerful, its 3.5-liter V6 engine, mated to an Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) tops out at 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque.
All things standard
The INFINITI QX50 takes its luxury status seriously, making many noteworthy features standard that competitors, like the Nissan Murano, either make optional via upgrades or don’t offer at all. For example, the base model of the 2020 INFINITI QX50 boasts a power liftgate, leather seats, climate control, and keyless start — none of which are on the base model of the Murano.
Nissan and INFINITI have both prioritized safety across their entire lineups. While there might not be a clear winner between the two, it’s important to note that both the 2020 INFINITI QX50 and the 2020 Nissan Murano lead the industry in innovative safety tech. On the QX50, you can get ProPILOT Assist, the next step toward autonomous driving. Among its active safety technologies are Distance Control Assist, Lane Departure Warning and Prevention, Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, and Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection.
