For This model is as lavish as the QX50 gets, with even more kit than the GT. It shares the same engine, transmission and excellent drive.

Against It may be good value for what it is, but it will be costly to run, especially as the residuals on big 4x4s are pretty weak. The biggest problem is the lack of space in the back and boot.

The way it drives and what you get for your money mean the basic QX50 is one of the best in class, but this version is simply too dear to recommend.
