2021 INFINITI QX50 vs 2021 BMW X3

Serving Novi, MI

When Novi’s drivers search for a premium compact crossover SUV, they easily narrow down the range of possibilities to two top contenders. The 2021 INFINITI QX50 and the 2021 BMW X3 both hold exceptional appeal through their capabilities and style. Are you ready to explore their differences and to pick out your next crossover SUV?


The 2021 QX50 has an inspired design across its exterior and interior. Throughout the exterior, you can appreciate the perfect balance of crisp, geometric elements and long, smooth definition. The low ground clearance and the steep slope through the rear windshield and liftgate show off the SUV’s athleticism. At the front end, the nose is long with a subtle swell and well-defined contour lines. The metal-accented grille is linked to the bold LED headlights. The 2021 BMW X3 also has low ground clearance. However, it has a tall roof with a relatively vertical flow down the liftgate. This crossover’s classic look is further defined by the small grille on the rounded nose and the double-elemental LED headlights.


As impressive as the 2021 INFINITI QX50’s exterior design is, the interior will delight you further. Throughout this two-row crossover, you can appreciate premium leather seats with contrast or quilted stitching. The console and dashboard are tastefully asymmetric so that they are centered around the driver. The stacked display screens define the cabin’s modern feel. The interior of the BMW X3, on the other hand, has one elongated display screen on top of the dashboard. The dashboard is layered with long air vents as well as stacked controls for the sound system and the climate management system.


Through all trims, the 2021 QX50 receives 268 horsepower from a VC-turbo I-4, 2.0-liter engine. All trims also have a drive mode selector and a continuously variable transmission. Both front-wheel and all-wheel drive options are available for most trims. On the other hand, the primary powertrain in the 2021 BMW X3 is a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine. It has an eight-speed auto transmission with several driving modes, and it produces 248 horsepower.
