See All of the Awards Earned By the 2019 INFINITI SUV Lineup!
Whether you call it a crossover, an SUV or a truck, we know you mean a 2- or 3-row vehicle that’s raised more off the ground and is made for versatility. And INFINITI adds a unique touch of luxury to each one that our brand produces for North New Jersey drivers.
For the 2019 model year, the INFINITI QX50 got reinvented while the INFINITI QX60 & INFINITI QX80 have been improved. And our customers and automotive critics alike enjoy the updates made to each of these models.
With that being said, let’s talk about all of the accolades earned by these 3 popular luxury SUVs.
2019 INFINITI QX50 Awards
Because of the overhaul given to the 2019 INFINITI QX50, it became the most-awarded model in our lineup this year. For starters, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave this vehicle a 5-star overall safety rating because of:
- Frontal crash test performance
- Side crash test performance
- Rollover crash test performance
- Having recommended safety tech like ProPILOT Assist, forward collision warning & lane departure warning
Consumer Guide Automotive also named the QX50 a Best Buy in the Premium Compact Crossover category, being only 1 of the 2 that won this accolade out of 17 models tested. AutoGuide.com readers also voted the QX50 as the Luxury SUV of the Year, beating out 11 other models, because of its combination of handsome styling and the new VC-Turbo engine.
It’s not just the whole crossover that earned accolades since the innovative INFINITI VC-Turbo engine has also won some awards by itself. We already wrote a blog post talking about it being named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines, but it also achieved the Powertrain Innovation Award from ALG and Driveline Technology of the Year Shift Award from Roadshow by CNET due to its ability to unlock optimal power & efficiency depending on the driver’s inputs.
2019 INFINITI QX60 Awards
The 2019 INFINITI QX60 also took home some accolades as well. For starters, U.S. News & World Report gave this vehicle the Best Cars for the Money Award in the Luxury 3-Row SUV category because it provides the highest value based on a combination of a vehicle’s 5-year total cost of ownership per Vincentric with the average price paid for it at the dealership per TrueCar.
In fact, Vincentric recognized the QX60 in its Best Value in America awards as a winner in the Luxury Large SUV/Crossover segment for the 3rd consecutive year. The value can also be seen in the 2019 INFINITI Q50, which earned this award in the Luxury Mid-Size Sedan category.
Speaking of value, QX60 also won Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own Award in Best 3-Row Luxury Mid-Size SUV/Crossover segment. Beating out other popular models in NJ like the 2019 Buick Enclave & 2019 Volvo XC90, KBB.com touted about this INFINITI’s features such as:
- User-friendly 3rd-row seating & easy-folding sliding 2nd-row seating
- Light-feeling yet powerful V6 that produces 295 hp & 270 lb/ft of torque
- Leather upholstery & other ample soft-touch surfaces
- 360-degree Around View Monitor
- Motion-activated rear liftgate
- Driver assistance features like blind spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist & collision avoidance with automatic braking
2019 INFINITI QX80 Awards
Let’s end off with the biggest SUV of our inventory: the 2019 INFINITI QX80. This model also earned the Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award, but in the Luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover category, beating out other popular models in NJ like the 2019 Lexus LX & 2019 Mercedes GLS.
The QX80 received this achievement because of its smooth ride provided by its hydraulic body motion control suspension system, ample power & light steering. The plush interior was also something KBB.com enjoyed, citing the SUV’s quilted leather seats, real wood veneers & the new AWD Limited package as the big highlights.
