Infiniti QX50 2022 gets more features and a higher price tag

Most cars go up in price most years. The Infiniti QX50 is no exception. Infiniti’s compact luxury SUV gets a slight price increase for the 2022 model year. But with the new price tag comes a significant new set of features.

Even after the increases, the QX50 remains one of the cheapest options on our list of the best small luxury SUVs.

New prices

Infiniti also charges a destination charge of $ 1,025 on all of its cars.

Model To augment New MSRP
Pure QX50 $ 950 $ 39,000
QX50 Luxury $ 750 $ 42,350
QX50 Essential $ 2,000 $ 46,800
QX50 Sensory $ 1,400 $ 54,500
QX50 Autograph $ 0 $ 56,950

Infiniti’s press release announcing the changes notes, “The 2022 Infiniti QX50 arrives in US showrooms in late 2021”. So, presumably, you will see them arriving at dealerships momentarily.


With the new prices comes a significant upgrade: Infiniti’s ProPilot Assist system is now standard on all trim levels. It adds intelligent cruise control, speed limit assistance and lane centering technology to lighten the driver’s workload.

Apple Wireless CarPlay is also standard across all trim levels for 2022 (Android Auto remains wired). The Infiniti Intelligent Key system, which detects approaching the key and unlocks the doors with a push of the handle, now works for both the rear and front doors.

The Essential trim sees the biggest price jump but justifies it with added content. It gets heated and ventilated front seats, a 16-speaker Bose audio system, and a heated steering wheel. The Sensory model adds perforated leather seats, heated second row seats, a power passenger seat and a motion-controlled tailgate.
