Infiniti QX50 Interior & Cargo Rating

2022 QX50 Interior

Infiniti is known for building luxury cars, so we expected to find nothing less than a premium interior space and were not disappointed: the cabin of the QX50 is a spacious and comfortable place to spend your time, as we've found in prior reviews of this model. The interior design is mature and elegant in an old-world sense, and those who prefer a more contemporary look will appreciate the interior of the Audi Q5. Be that as it may, you still get your money's worth here. The base model offers standard features such as dual-zone automatic temperature control and eight-way power-adjustable front seats. As is to be expected, the driver position is relatively high up, affording good forward visibility, and getting in and out of the cabin won't be an issue for both short and tall individuals.

Seating and Interior Space

The QX50 is strictly a five-seat vehicle with no option for a third row. Infiniti scores a win here, as the QX50 boasts class-leading interior space for front and rear occupants. Front seat passengers enjoy 39.6 inches of legroom and 41 inches of headroom without the moonroof. In the back, the second row offers a spacious 38.7 inches of legroom with a sliding seat (a rare feature in this segment). All of those seats feature Infiniti's Zero Gravity NASA-inspired technology, meaning they are pillowy soft and devoid of pressure points. Think of the QX50 as a comfy couch on wheels.

Interior Colors and Materials

In terms of material quality, the QX50 excels with soft-touch surfaces, premium leathers, and luxurious trims. There are some buttons and controls shared with Nissan, but they are few and far between. At the base level, the QX50 is only available with Graphite leatherette paired with aluminum trim. Wheat leatherette is available by stepping up one trim level. The Essential trim transforms these two colors into real leather when equipped with the Convenience package, while the Sensory is the first to add leather upholstery. The Autograph trim steps up to semi-aniline leather, and includes Natural Maple wood interior trim accents, and an Ultrasuede headliner. The Autograph is available with a premium white interior color, paired with blue accents for a unique signature look.

2022 QX50 Trunk and Cargo Space

Vehicles competing in the luxury SUV market need to juggle practicality with a premium driving experience, and we applaud the Infiniti QX50 for doing just that. Not only is the interior refined, but there is also good space on offer, both for people and their stuff. The QX50 offers a class-leading 31.4 cubic feet of space behind the second row of seats, while cars fitted with the power moonroof see that number drop slightly to 31.1 cubes. This is enough space to carry a week's worth of groceries for a sizable family, and if you need even more space, the rear 60/40-split fold-down seatbacks can avail a whopping 65.1 cubic feet (or 64.4 cubes with the moonroof fitted). Small items can be stored in the glovebox, door pockets, front seatback map pockets, or center armrest storage compartment, and there are dual cupholders front and back.

2022 QX50 Infotainment and Features


Infiniti does not hold back when it comes to standard features: the base model offers a wide range of standard features, including highlights such as dual zone automatic temperature control, eight-way power-adjustable front seats with driver power lumbar support, intelligent key with illuminated push-button ignition, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and safety tech such as high beam assist, blind spot warning, predictive forward collision warning, and forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Luxe models add features such seat heating, a panoramic power moonroof, remote engine start, and added safety tech in the form of distance control assist and Infiniti's ProPILOT Assist, which includes steering assist and advanced intelligent cruise control with full-speed range and stop and hold functionality, as well as lane departure prevention and blind spot intervention. The Essential trim offers even more tech; here, you get a standard surround-view camera system, traffic sign recognition, navigation, and front and rear parking sensors. The Sensory trim includes a head-up display and leather seating. Autograph derivatives add luxuries such as ventilated front seats and tri-zone climate control.


Infotainment may be the QX50's most glaring weakness. All trim levels use Infiniti's InTouch infotainment system with eight-inch upper and seven-inch lower touchscreen displays. The top screen is reserved for the navigation map or Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, while the lower screen is used for climate, radio, and other functions with some physical shortcut buttons surrounding it. We found the system to be a jumbled mess to use, and the two screens look as though they came from different decades. There is no greater example of this than the bird's eye camera, which has harsh divider lines and low resolution. The Nissan Rogue's system looks more modern, and this should not be the case when spending more on an Infiniti.

At least they feature Apple and Android support, making the overall experience more tolerable. Bluetooth streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, as well as a six-speaker audio system with AM/FM radio and CD player all come standard, while upper trims gain built-in navigation, and a Bose Performance Series sound system with 16 speakers.
