You're excused if you sometimes forget that Infiniti has a rival to the likes of the Mercedes GLC Coupe and BMW X4, as so do we. The QX55 premium compact crossover coupe marked the brand's return to this class at the end of 2020, and it has just stepped into the 2025 model year.
You probably think that there is something new, but it's not. You see, the 2025 Infiniti QX55 is identical to the 2024 model. It carries over unchanged, and the same applies to the manufacturer's suggested retail price, as it costs the same after Nissan's premium car marque bumped its price for the 2023 and 2024 model years by $2,650 and $850, respectively.

The lineup starts with the Luxe trim level, which can still be ordered from $50,150. Key features include LED headlights with high-beam assist, rear parking sensors, 20-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats. It also features Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, a wireless charging pad, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and the ProPilot assist safety bundle.

Stepping up to the 2025 Infiniti QX55 Essential means paying a minimum of $55,100. This model adds cube-design LED headlights with high-beam assist, front parking sensors, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and a Bose premium audio. The Around View Monitor is on deck, with Moving Object Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition, navigation system, etc.

Infiniti QX55's top grade is still the Sensory, which features all of the above and then some. It builds on the Essential and adds black natural maple open-pore wood trim inside, metallic trim plates in the trunk, semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated rear seats, a motion-activated liftgate, a head-up display, improved ambient lighting system, and that’s about all.

Powering all grades is the same 2.0-liter four-pot the develops 268 horsepower (272 ps/200 kW) and 280 pound-foot (380 Nm) of torque. The lump is mated to an Xtronic transmission with rev matching and standard paddle shifters, and the QX55 features the brand's intelligent all-wheel drive system. The model returns 22 mpg (10.7 l/100 km) in the city, 28 mpg (8.4 l/100 km) on the highway, and 25 mpg (9.4 l/100 km) combined.

But how does the 2025 Infiniti QX55 stack up to some of its biggest rivals in the class price-wise? Well, the base BMW X4, the xDrive30i, which packs a 2.0L engine making 248 hp (252 ps/185 kW) and 258 pound-feet (350 Nm) of torque, has an MSRP of $55,000 in the United States. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4Matic Coupe starts at $57,000 before destination and dealer fees and also uses a 2.0L motor, which is good for 255 hp (259 ps/190 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.

So, would you buy a QX55 over the competition?
