The Infiniti QX30 is a new addition to Infiniti’s lineup and is its first entry to the growing luxury subcompact crossover segment. Slotting below the QX50, the Infiniti QX30 is a small luxury crossover that’s available in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations.
The Infiniti QX30’s only engine is a Mercedes-sourced 2.0-liter turbo-four with 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. That powerplant is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which also comes from Mercedes-Benz. For a sportier driving experience, the QX30S comes with a sport suspension with a 0.6 inch lower ride height, cross-drilled front brake rotors, sport seats, and 19-inch alloy wheels. Cargo space behind the split-folding second row is 19.2 cubic feet, which is smaller than some compact hatchbacks. All-wheel drive variants of the QX30 have 1.2 inches of extra ground clearance compared to their front-drive counterparts. Available options include Infiniti’s Around View Monitor multi-camera parking aid, LED headlights, navigation, LED fog lights, a Bose premium audio system, and a panoramic moonroof.
