2019 INFINITI QX30 Review

May 17th, 2019 by

The highly stylized 2019 QX30 attempts to connect the experience of compact hatchbacks and high-riding crossovers. Its unmistakable sheet metal is straight from INFINITI’s design studio, but its platform and powertrain are courtesy of Mercedes-Benz—specifically the CLA- and GLA-class. This little luxury ute shares their 208-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and seven-speed automatic transmission. The QX30 boasts a nicely crafted interior and the hatchback heartthrob thrives on active handling and expressive styling.

Inside, the QX30 puts on a good show. INFINITI has mixed its own distinct design and premium materials with several components from Mercedes-Benz donors. The cabin looks and feels upscale here—even if rear-seat passengers are cramped. Every QX30 has a leather-wrapped steering wheel and leatherette trappings on the dash and center console. Those who want fancier features will have to spring for the top-tier Premium and Sport models. These are exclusively available with options such as ambient interior lighting, genuine wood trim, and a faux-suede headliner.

Every QX30 has 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, which helped both the front-drive Sport and the Premium AWD bolt to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds. Its snappy throttle response at low revs makes for lively rides around town.
