Driving Impression

“”

Since the QX30 presents a Mercedes powertrain, it delivers Mercedes performance. The engine and transmission are responsive, from a standstill or during passing. (Some other turbocharged four-cylinders with dual-clutch automated transmissions are hesitant at those times.) Acceleration from zero to sixty miles per hour comes in just over seven seconds, which is good performance. There’s a rumble from under the hood, maybe more than you want to hear.

The gas pedal is quick initially, making the power tricky to modulate from a start. The paddle-shifting dual-clutch 7-speed shifts quickly but sometimes gets confused at low speeds.

Intended to conserve fuel, the automatic Stop/Start system is noticeable, but not jolting as in some rivals. It must be the smooth Mercedes system, better than the disruptive BMW system.

The steering feels consistent at any speed, neither heavy at high speeds nor overboosted in parking-lot driving. Of course, it might be argued that the whole point of electronic variable steering is to make it heavier at speed and lighter in tight maneuvers. But no, INFINITI engineers say they intended the QX30 steering to be consistent. It’s also precise.

The QX30 corners with dexterity. In the twisties, the front-wheel-drive feels more alive. The front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models ride nearly the same, with the awd a bit stiffer because of its thicker rear anti-roll bar. Firmer springs and suspension tuning on the front-wheel-drive QX30S tighten the handling but don’t significantly stiffen the ride on the 19-inch wheels.

Walk Around

“”

INFINITI’s latest design language speaks sharp angles and sweeping curves, with elements of French design.

From the long and angular nose, the sheetmetal flows back to swollen fenders around large wheel wells. The greenhouse is short and low, flaunting INFINITI’s familiar reverse-crescent C-pillar that supports and steeply sloped rear window and reaches to a chopped rear end. It’s a profile unlike any other luxury compact crossover.

Sharp scalloped character lines begin near the top and bottom of the front doors and narrow as they race toward the rear wheel wells, deliver a striking three-dimensional image and exaggerating the car’s horizontal lines. An elevated stance somehow steals from the hatchback silhouette. That’s not on the QX30S, which is a half-inch lower and shows it.

Interior Overview

“”

When you enter the cabin your attention is immediately drawn to the asymmetrical sweep of the dashboard. It’s very much unlike the austere and business-like Mercedes crossover (or any German car) that it shares some pieces with, for example much of the switchgear. It’s weird, German knobs in an INFINITI.

The cabin is smartly designed and full of high-quality materials. Even in the base model having an excellent fabric upholstery, there’s a lot of soft-touch materials.

INFINITI designs its seats based on spinal support research, matching the curvature of the human spine, to reduce pressure on the back muscles with better distribution of the load. Maybe as a result, some passengers can expect a snug fit in their seats. Front seats are sufficiently wide with good legroom, though head space is limited. As a road curves leftward, taller drivers might note that the windshield pillar restricts their view. The coupe-like roof dips sharply downward, so average-height, front-seat passengers might feel obliged to duck their heads to see outward.

The long roof provides a greater sense of spaciousness in the rear, but it’s also low, so that takes away headroom. Same with legroom in the 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The cabin volume is rated at 19.2 cubic feet, which is one more cubic foot than the Mercedes GLA250 that it’s based upon.

Voice recognition controls audio and navigation commands. InTouch infotainment features intuitive finger-touch and swipe controls, via a seven-inch touchscreen.

Summary

The INFINITI QX30 features striking sheetmetal wrapped around a Mercedes engine and transmission. Stylish cabin is best-suited for two, with four only occasionally. Twenty-seven miles per gallon on Premium fuel with responsive acceleration performance.

QX30 models are base, Luxury, Premium and Sport, available with all-wheel-drive in Luxury and Premium.

QX30 comes standard ($29,950) with high-quality black fabric upholstery, manual front seats, and InTouch infotainment with a 7-inch screen, but don’t expect INFINITI dealers to find one out back for you. Much more common will be the QX30 Luxury ($32,600), available with AWD ($34,400)

QX30S Sport ($38,500) comes with front-wheel drive, a lower ride height with 19-inch wheels, its own front and rear fascia, a glossy black grille, leather-wrapped, flat-bottomed steering wheel, and aluminum pedals and footrests. Sport seats with eight-way power adjustment and lumbar support are available.

Nappa leather is available. Optional designer packages for the interior include: City Black that couples black upholstery with purple stitching; Cafe Teak that features black stitching with brown/black upholstery; Gallery White that trims white upholstery with red details.

Safety features include blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning with emergency braking assist, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, self-parking, and a surround-view camera system that detects moving objects like dogs, cats, or children.
