“Individuals that don’t need to seat seven will enjoy the QX50’s compact size more. Its smaller stature makes it easier to drive and park on congested streets. With its smaller body and engine, the QX50 is the more fuel-efficient crossover of the two, as well. The QX50 can get up to 24 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 27 combined, according to the EPA. The QX60 isn’t as efficient at 20/27/22 mpg (city/highway/combined) with front-wheel drive.
Understandably, the QX50 is the more affordable option of the two. The smaller crossover starts at $37,545, which includes destination. The QX60 is $6,750 more, with a starting price of $44,295.”

“The major difference between the QX60 and the QX50 is size – the QX60 is larger, both inside and out, than the QX50. The QX60 has 149 cubic feet of passenger capacity, which is 13.2 cubic feet more than then QX50. The extra passenger room results in more front leg room, rear leg room, front shoulder room, rear shoulder room, front hip room, and rear hip room.
With its larger proportions, the QX60 can seat more passengers than the QX50, too. The mid-size crossover has a three-row layout that’s capable of holding up to seven passengers, while the QX50 is a five-passenger-only affair. If you need a vehicle that can hold a lot of cargo, the QX60 is the obvious choice. It can hold up to 76.2 cubic feet of cargo with all of the seats folded down. That’s 11.1 cubic feet more than what the QX50 can hold.
Lastly, the QX60 gets the nod when it comes to power. The mid-size crossover comes with a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 295 horsepower, while the QX50’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is rated to make 268 hp.”

Finer safety details:
The available Blind Spot Warning and Blind Spot Intervention® systems help alert you to vehicles in the blind spot area when driving, then actively assist you back toward the center of your travel lane if you begin to move over. [*]
Using a sophisticated combination of radar and sonar, this accident prevention and collision avoidance system helps monitor approaching vehicles and large objects behind your vehicle and will automatically engage the brakes if needed. Designed to automatically activate below five miles per hour, it helps provide driver confidence while in reverse. [*]
This breakthrough INFINITI technology senses the distances between you, the vehicle in front of you, and the next vehicle in front of them. Along with ProPILOT Assist technologies, it helps provide added reassurance for stressful highway driving and city traffic alike. [*]
INFINITI’s innovative Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection measures the speed and distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Along with its ability to help detect pedestrians, this standard system can provide an audible and visual warning to help the driver identify a potential frontal collision. If the brakes are not engaged after the warning, your QX50 can partially or fully apply the brakes to help avoid a collision. [*]

The standard Blind Spot Warning and Available Blind Spot Intervention® systems help alert you to vehicles detected in the blind spot area when driving, then actively assist you back toward the center of your travel lane if you begin to move over. [*] [*]
INFINITI’s Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection can not only measure the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you as well as the speed of both vehicles – it can also capture pedestrian movement, helping the driver detect a potential frontal collision. The system works by providing an audible and visual warning. If the brakes are not engaged, they will be partially applied, even fully braking if necessary. [*]
This standard system can warn the driver of risks that may be obscured from the driver’s forward field-of-view. It not only senses the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle traveling in front of the preceding one. [*]
