2023 BMW X3 vs. 2023 INFINITI QX50


The 2023 INFINITI QX50 is a mid-sized sport utility vehicle that impresses with its sleek interior, slick performance, and airy cabin. But does it have what it takes to beat the 2023 BMW X3, an SUV lauded for its potent inline six, wonderful handling and superb fuel efficiency?

Design & Style

The BMW X3 has four doors and can carry up to five passengers. It is a cross over that is often compared to the legendary BMW 3-series thanks to the shared powertrains that both vehicles use. The cabin is roomy and covered in upmarket materials such as supple leather, gleaming metallic surfaces and wooden trim. Its powered seats can be adjusted ten ways and include side bolsters which are fully adjustable.

The INFINITI QX50 also seats five passengers and comes with a four cylinder engine that is turbocharged with variable compression. It has a sporty exterior with twenty one inch wheels that are darkly painted while the cabin features semi aniline based leather upholstery. Its ambient light is breathtaking, and buyers can also equip a camera with three hundred and sixty degree view along with ventilated seats.

Technology & Safety

The QX50 is outfitted with an array of driver assistance features that include emergency automatic brakes, frontal impact alerts, blind area monitoring, stop and go as well as adapted cruise control. Amenities within its cabin include a Bose audio system with sixteen speakers, 3 USB ports, wifi, numerous twelve volt outlets, climate control and a rotary knob.

The BMW X3 matches the INFINITI when it comes to safety, as it incorporates all the same features. Buyers will get frontal impact alerts; emergency automated brakes, numerous airbags and adapted cruise control. Its cabin amenities consist of twelve inch infotainment screens, Bluetooth, the option of two USB ports, and the choice of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay with a wireless charging pad.


The M40i is the most advanced BMW X3, and includes a turbocharged inline 6 engine that is 3 liter and capable of generating 382 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds. The INFINITI QX50 uses a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine which can generate 268 horsepower which enables it to accelerate from 0 to 60 in 6.4 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Aside from its horsepower and acceleration advantage over the INFINITI, the BMW X3 also has superior top speed at 155 mph whereas the QX50 can only reach 137 mph, which means the INFINITI loses in a race. And the QX50 has other problems such as its CVT which amplifies engine noise and its lackluster handling, which make the BMW X3 the winner.
