A comprehensive Infiniti QX50 safety review has yet to be conducted by the IIHS, but so far, the moderate-overlap front and original side tests yielded Good results and the updated side test Acceptable. The NHTSA gives the 2023 QX50 a full five-star rating overall, with four stars for the frontal crash and rollover test.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
The Infiniti QX50 crossover comes packed with standard safety features. The basics include an eight-airbag system with roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental airbags for front and rear occupants, along with brake assist and stability control. Driver-assistance features that are standard across the range include blind-spot warning, predictive forward-collision warning, forward-emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors with automatic braking, the semi-autonomous cruise control system named ProPilot Assist, lane departure prevention, and blind-spot intervention. The Sport trim includes a surround-view camera system (other models have a rearview camera), traffic-sign recognition, and front parking sensors. The top two trims also get rain-sensing window wipers and auto-dimming side mirrors, while the Sensory is the only trim to get a head-up display.

The good news is that the 2023 Infiniti QX50 is yet to be recalled. The 2022 models were recalled only once for an incorrectly installed door latch and the 2021 models also only once for a faulty steering knuckle or rear axle housing, but reliability issues don't seem to be a major concern with the QX50. JD Power gave the QX50 a Quality & Reliability score of 78 out of 100, which is decent. Infiniti will cover the QX50 with a basic four-year/60,000-mile warranty, a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, and four years of roadside assistance. From this year, Infiniti Care is added, covering the first three years of scheduled maintenance.
