The QX50, which INFINITI introduced in 2014, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. The QX50 provides superior EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, easing fuel costs and reducing pollution. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. INFINITI offers a 4-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 INFINITI QX50 is average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 INFINITI QX50 has a score of 81, implying a 0.041% chance of driver death (3.7% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 INFINITI QX50 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0409% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.6701%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0409% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.6701% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 INFINITI QX50 is 12% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 INFINITI QX50 is 1% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the INFINITI QX50 include: Predictive Forward Collision Warning with Forward Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Departure Prevention, and Blind Spot Monitoring.

Some safety features still may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you. Optional High Beam Assist (HBA) on the 2022 INFINITI QX50 automatically switches off high beams headlights when another vehicle is nearby.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
