2018 INFINITI QX30 vs. 2018 Jaguar E-Pace | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2018 INFINITI QX30 vs. 2018 Jaguar E-Pace

The 2018 INFINITI QX30 tops the list of crossovers hands down. It has a remarkable Teutonic personality, amazing styling, and offers a zippy experience when it comes to handling. The 2018 Jaguar E-Pace handles well, is spacious despite its compact size, and good-looking. The varied characteristics of both crossovers have left car buyers wondering which SUV offers a better deal. Here’s why the QX30 has the upper hand.

Design & Style

From a suave, swoopy roofline to a uniquely pinched exterior styling, the INFINITI QX30 was designed to turn heads the moment the car hit the streets. It is hard to miss the QX30’s signature Z-shape flair, where the rearmost roof pillar cants rearward then forward. The crossover SUV also features darkened fender flares, which add to its luxurious, cool, and sporty vibe. The Jaguar E-Pace is a subtle mix of luxury, utility, sport, and style. Jaguar’s minimalistic approach to the E-Pace’s exterior styling may not be suited for car owners who are looking to make a statement.

When you open the doors of the INFINITI QX30 to look inside, you will notice a nicely finished interior where soft-touch materials abound. You can find fabric upholstery in base models and Nappa leather hides in higher trim levels. The front seats are extremely comfortable and designed to reduce spinal fatigue. What’s more, they are power-adjustable. The Jaguar E-Pace’s interior features ice-cool metal that surrounds the outermost vents and scalloped door inserts. These interior features do provide the car with a seductive look but there is a tall central tunnel that did not manage to pull of that racecar look. Instead, it gives off a bathtub-like and oppressive vibe.

Technology & Safety

2018 INFINITI QX30 offers car owners all the modern tech they have dreamt of having in a crossover. From keyless ignition to dual-zone automatic climate and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system to an eight-way manually adjusted front seats. The QX30 also comes equipped with seven airbags (including a knee airbag on the driver’s side), anti-lock brakes, a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and many more. The E-Pace comes with the usual active safety features and driver aids. They also offer a touchscreen infotainment system that has app integration and convenient smartphone connectivity.


Both crossovers are powered 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines. They also come with all-wheel drive capabilities. If you are looking to get an exhilarating driving experience, QX30’s turbocharged 2.0-liter inline 4 rated engine does not disappoint. It offers 258 pound-feet of torque and 208 horsepower, which are delivered via snappy accelerator pedal tuning.

The Bottom Line

Although the E-Pace offers athletic performance, it is bulkier and costs more than most established subcompact SUVs. If you are looking for an affordable, truly compact, and luxury crossover, the 2018 INFINITI QX30 is clearly the winner.
