The 2019 QX50 from Infiniti has an interesting little trick under the hood: a variable compression engine.

By expanding the piston's reach, the 2.0-liter engine can vary its compression from 8:1 to 14:1, allowing for both power and efficiency.

The QX50 is also loaded with driver's aids, including the excelling ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous system.

The technology will not only bring the QX50 to a complete stop behind a lead car, it also keeps the vehicle centered in the lane.
