Sporty and Sophisticated: Meet Your Modern Crossover Coupe
It’s near-impossible to find a crossover coupe as alluring as the 2022 INFINITI QX55 with features like a double-arch grille with an origami-inspired mesh to draw in looks near-effortlessly. Move to the rear, and the piano key taillights add an elegant edge to your cruises while making a unique accent for drivers from behind to appreciate. Move away, and the flowing curves and smooth details craft the ultimate refined profile that hints at the pampering and power you’re feeling inside.
Even with so much sleekness—you might be wondering how this fine ride competes with other luxury compact SUVs, making you question what’s better for you between the 2022 INFINITI QX55 vs Genesis GV70. Not to worry though, as today we’ll take a closer look at the specs and features of both these refined models—and while you’re at it, stop by South Motors INFINITI in Miami to test drive the 2022 INFINITI QX55.
Command Corners and Commutes with Authority
Take a ride in the 2022 INFINITI QX55, where athletic elegance comes to life with the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder motor with a Variable Compression Turbo that emits 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft torque starting at 1,600 rpm to help you rush to city speeds at a spirited pace for fun with turning or merging into tough spots. For pure responsiveness, you’ll also have a CVT transmission shifting through gears to help you enjoy a virtually lag-free experience in a transmission that’s typically lighter than your general automatic gearbox (and helps this SUV weigh in at an ultra-light 4,015 lbs). Plus, with up to EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg, you’ll get a boost in enjoying your rides without constant interruptions from needing to refuel.
By comparison, the Genesis GV70 also packs exhilarating rides with its 2.5L Turbocharged I-4-cylinder motor with 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft torque starting at 1,650 rpm. On paper, this powertrain looks mightier than its INFINITI competitor—however, the Genesis model weighs in at 4,167, which grants both SUVs an ultra-similar power-to-weight ratio, meaning you won’t feel much of a strength difference when behind the wheel. However, the 8-speed automatic, while still responsive, weighs more than a usual CVT and needs to work harder to shift through gears, which gives the INFINITI a slight advantage when it comes to performance.
Who Knew the Bar for Luxury SUVs Could Be This High?
Everything about the 2022 QX55 exudes upscale and refined—especially with unique available touches like the Graphite and Monaco Red color scheme that blends performance with visual pleasure that’s hard to find elsewhere. Sit inside, and the comfort lives up to the design with even your rear passengers having 38.7 inches of legroom to help them stretch out and kick back with ease. When it’s time to connect to your ride, standard wireless Apple CarPlay® lets you sync to your compatible smartphone without needing to bring a jumbled mess of wires along for the ride, helping you cruise clutter-free while jamming out to your favorite playlists. Plus, with the available Bose® Performance Series 16-speaker premium audio system, you’ll get extra help in hearing every bass drop and high note with full clarity.
By comparison, the Genesis GV70 also offers a premium experience with spacious seating and ample comfort features. However, in the rear, your riders only have 37.2 inches of legroom to work with, which can be comfortable but is also more than one inch less than the INFINITI model, which makes a difference for taller passengers. Also, Apple CarPlay comes standard—but you’ll need to bring a USB cord along for the ride, as wireless is not yet an option. Also, your premium Lexicon® audio system only includes 15 speakers, which is one less than you’ll find in the 2022 INFINITI QX55, helping you enjoy your music and podcasts with more crisp sound. It’s another close round, but the INFINITI SUV walks away with another victory for packing more space and more advanced technology.
Nimble and Luxurious without Giving Up Safety
Safety always comes first when you’re inside the 2022 INFINITI QX55 with features like Blind Spot Warning and Intervention® coming standard. When it’s time to merge to your exit lane, an extra set of eyes in the form of sensors looks out for hard-to-see areas and warns of your vehicles in your blind zones to help you avoid a sideswipe—and the system can even help you redirect back to your lane’s center to further reduce your odds of a collision. Also, features like Predictive Forward Collision Warning is standard to warn you of detected dangers ahead to assist you in avoiding a fender bender by swerving or braking in time. When it’s time to park (or leave a parking lot), available Around View® Monitor shows you your surroundings to help you avoid hitting bikes, cart returns, and more to help avoid parking garage accidents—and that’s only getting started with the safety you’ll find in your INFINITI SUV.
By comparison, the 2022 Genesis GV70 also packs you with available and standard safety systems like Around View Monitor, Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist to help you cruise with confidence. This round is near-even, but when considering the responsive drives and advanced tech in the INFINITI QX55, the INFINITI crossover coupe wins for delivering the ultimate exhilarating drive.
