Convenience

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the INFINITI QX50 or the Lexus NX 300h, it's going to cost you about the same.

Both the INFINITI QX50 and the Lexus NX 300h have similar Destination Charges.
