2017 INFINITI QX30 vs. 2016 Lexus CT | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2017 INFINITI QX30 vs. 2016 Lexus CT

When it comes to luxury vehicles, INFINITI is turning heads with their range of sleek cars. This is why auto buyers in St. James, New York, are often torn between the 2017 INFINITI QX30 and the 2016 Lexus CT. Here at COMPETITION INFINITI, we have put together a quick guide comparing the two. Read on to find out why the INFINITI QX30 is head and shoulders above the Lexus CT.

Design & Style

The first thing you notice about the INFINITI is its shape and design. This is a futuristic looking car, that features all sharp angles and beautiful long lines on the advanced aerodynamic body. The bonnet looks like it is about to burst, giving the QX30 a muscular and powerful look, while the LED headlights give it that classy look.

Inside the cabin, you are greeted with Nappa leather facing upholstery, while the seats are 8-way power adjustable with power lumbar support. These comfortable seats are also heated, while the automatic dual-zone climate control will maintain the correct temperature, while the 10-speaker Bose audio system will play your music. Also installed is the INFINITI InTouch infotainment system, with a 7-inch touchscreen and excellent navigation system that includes SUNA live traffic updates.

In comparison, the Lexus tries to maintain a sporty look but is no match for the QX30. It has a reasonably low roof, given its lines and angles a squatter look. Inside the cabin, there is leatherette upholstery, dual-zone climate control and an eight-way power seat for the driver. The audio system has six speakers, while the navigation system has a 7-inch display for the Lexus Enform app-based infotainment system.

Technology & Safety

The Lexus has the normal array of safety features, such as anti-lock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front and rear airbags and dual knee airbags in the front. It is also fitted with automatic collision notification, while a rearview camera and parking sensors are options. The INFINITI also has the standard set of safety features; it also has blind spot warning, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, rear and front parking sensors coupled with around view monitor with moving object detection. Traffic sign recognition and intelligent park assist are also available.


The QX30 is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, that pulls 208 horsepower, and is driven by a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The Lexus is a hybrid, made up of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and electric motors. Its total output is 134 hp, driven through the front wheels. It can hit 96 km/h in 10.5 seconds.

The Bottom Line

It should be no surprise to see that the INFINITI QX30 is the better car of the two. When it comes to style, looks, comfort, technology and power, the Lexus cannot stand up to its competitor.
