For The Infiniti QX50 is a sporty 4x4 with a hint of coupe about it. The interior is sturdily constructed, and it’s packed with gadgets and equipment.

Against It costs far too much to buy, running costs are very high, rear space is cramped and the boot is surprisingly small.

We like the Infiniti QX50’s handling, but with purchase prices and running costs this high, owning one will be prohibitively expensive.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Given how few models the company sells, there's little doubt that the Infiniti QX50 will have a real air of exclusivity to it. Mind you, that’s also because the car has some serious shortcomings – and none more so than how much it will cost to buy and run.

The petrol engine's high fuel consumption and emissions mean that you'll end up paying a lot to keep it on the road whether you're a private or a company buyer; and, even if you choose the diesel engine, you’ll sit in the top band for company car tax and struggle to get as much as 30mpg in everyday use.

To cap it all, given that Infiniti is a relatively unknown brand and the QX50 is a large 4x4, the car's residual values are weak, which means that whole-life running costs and contract hire rates are high.
