When it comes to performance, comparing the INFINITI QX50 vs BMW X3 is a matter of preference. Overall, the BMW X3 has slightly less horsepower than the QX50. The INFINITI model is powered by its turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that shifts between its compression ratios as it goes, maximizing both efficiency and power. The BMW X3 offers a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine as well, just without the unique compression ratio shifting of the INFINITI.
Both models of SUVs come in various packages that offer more luxury perks as you go up the ladder. The QX50’s base model comes with keyless access and start, LED exterior lights, and dual-zone climate control to name a few. Upgrade to the highest model and you’ll enjoy perks like a panoramic moonroof, heated front seats, and LED fog lights.
The BMW X3 base model includes LED fog lights, SensaTec upholstery, a 12-speaker and 205-watt sound system, as well as a keyless start. You can enjoy even more features when you upgrade from the base model.
While the BMW X3 certainly packs a punch in looks, power, and perks, bottom-line reviews place the INFINITI QX50 slightly ahead in almost all categories. Compare the two vehicles in safety features, drivetrain, power, fuel economy, etc., and see the difference for yourself.
