2021 INFINITI QX50 vs 2021 Cadillac XT5
When searching for a luxury SUV, you’ll come across contenders like the 2021 INFINITI QX50 and the 2021 Cadillac XT5. They’re both suitable matches for driving around Redwood City, San Francisco, and San Mateo, California, but which one should you choose? Redwood City INFINITI put together this guide that runs down the differences between both vehicles for your convenience.
Which Car Contains More Cargo Space?
When you open the trunk, you may not know how much space it contains, but you’ll know which feels bigger. If you want the maximum amount of room, put down the rear seats in the INFINITI QX50. It offers up to 65.1 cubic feet of cargo space. For the Cadillac, you only get 63 cubic feet of cargo space.
To get a greater feeling of space, the INFINITI QX50 provides you with a glorious Panoramic Moonroof. While you can add an UltraView® sunroof in the Cadillac, it’s not available for every trim and does not span as far as the INFINITI QX50 amenity.
The INFINITI QX50 upgrades you to climate-controlled seating that adjusts to whatever level of comfort you need. Available heated and ventilated front seats come as two separate options for the Cadillac.
Which Car Features More Speakers?
On the dashboard, the INFINITI QX50 stacks both screens in one glowing panel of infotainment. An 8-inch INFINITI InTouch™ display sits on top with a 7-inch display on the bottom. Add Navigation with Lane Guidance to ensure that you’re riding in the correct lane, so you don’t miss an exit. The Cadillac features an available 8-inch Driver Information Center screen.
The INFINITI QX50 supplies you with an optional Bose® Performance Series Audio System and strategically places 16 speakers in the cabin. The Cadillac offers a Bose® Performance Series surround sound system with 14 speakers.
Does Safety Come Standard?
Four standard safety systems protect you from hazards surrounding the INFINITI QX50. Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Rear Automatic Braking all come standard for the least visible areas around your car. While the Cadillac offers Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Reverse Automatic Braking, they do not come standard.
The same goes for the advanced cruise control systems, which will manage congestion, keep you a safe distance away from cars ahead of you, and maintain your speed. The INFINITI QX50 offers standard Advanced Intelligent Cruise Control, and the Cadillac offers an available Adaptive Cruise Control for their SUV.
Which SUV Produces More Horsepower?
Whether you’re driving an INFINITI QX50 or Cadillac XT5, you’ll have a standard 2.0L Turbo I4 cylinder engine. With the standard INFINITI QX50 engine, it produces up to 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Cadillac’s standard engine can only generate up to 235 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
Depending on your driving conditions, customize your ride by using different drive modes. In the INFINITI QX50, you can choose from Standard, Sport, Eco, and Personal mode through the INFINITI Drive Mode Selector. A Drive Mode Selector appears in the Cadillac, but you’ll only have three modes to choose from. For vehicles equipped with FWD, select Snow/Ice, Touring, or Sport mode. Those with AWD will get Off-Road, Touring, and Sport mode.
