Automotive Editor -

The INFINITI QX30 is a crossover, but it's a small one, and prioritizes handling and style over all-out capability. It's certainly more of a lifestyle vehicle than anything resembling a family hauler, but that's exactly how the luxury automaker wants buyers to think of its most affordable model.

What's New for 2018

The QX30 is essentially unchanged for its second year on the market.

Choosing Your INFINITI QX30

The QX30's inviting interior is what we expect in a luxury-branded vehicle, and buyers get legitimate room for five passengers. There's 19 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, and 34 cubic feet with it folded. That tells us the QX30 is intended for weekend getaways for two, not family vacations. Almost any compact hatchback will hold more.

However, the QX30 doesn't skimp on power for a vehicle of its size. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 208 horsepower and 258 lb-feet of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission delivers power to front wheels. The available all-wheel drive system increases ride height by 1.2 inches.

As before, the QX30 is offered in four trim levels: Base, Luxury, Premium, and Sport.

Base

Starting at $30,945 (including a $995 destination charge), the QX30's base trim is only available with front-wheel drive. That said, it also comes with conveniences like keyless ignition and access, auto-dimming mirrors, a rearview camera, and INFINITI's InTouch infotainment system with HD and satellite radio, voice controls, and seven audio speakers. Seats are clad in leatherette. Also standard are 18-inch alloy wheels with run-flat tire.

There are no standalone option packages for the QX30 Base.

Luxury

The QX30 Luxury starts at $32,600 and adds genuine leather upholstery, power heated front seats with driver memory, a rear center armrest with pass-through, and leather dash accents. All-wheel drive ($1,800) becomes available at this level.

Like the base trim, the QX30 Luxury doesn't offer any optional extras.

Premium

You'll need to spend at least $35,300 to gain access to the QX30's host of option packages, although that also upgrades you to the Premium trim level, as well. Look for a premium Bose sound system, LED fog lights, roof rails, body-color mirror housings, and a panoramic sunroof.

Optional extras start with the $1,850 Navigation Package, which adds navigation and front and rear parking sensors. The Navigation Package is a prerequisite for the QX30's more advanced option packages, though, so if you want either of the next two groups, you'll need nav.

A $2,200 Technology Package adds advanced safety technology like adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera system, and front collision mitigation with automatic braking. The LED Package ($1,000) tacks on adaptive LED head lights and ambient LED interior lighting. But what's strange here is that each of these packages is a prerequisite for the other – so you can't get the Technology Package without the LED Package and vice versa. Keep that in mind if you have your heart set on one or the other.

Wood interior trim tops things off for $500. Models equipped with at least the Navigation Package can get 19-inch wheels with summer performance tires for $800.

Two design package are available on the Premium, both priced at $1,750. The Gallery White Package, exclusive to front-drive models, features white leather upholstery with red accents and unique wheels. All-wheel drive versions can get a Cafe Teak Package with brown leather seats, matching leatherette cockpit trim, and wood appliques.

Sport

The $38,500 QX30 Sport rides on a lowered, sport-tuned suspension with standard 19-inch wheels and performance tires. Notably, it's not available with all-wheel drive. Other exclusives include sporty body trim, an automated parking system, and leatherette front sport seats with suede-like accents.

The Navigation Package is available at no cost, while a Sport Leather Package adds nicer upholstery for a $1,500 Premium. The LED Package and Technology Package have are rebranded as the Sport LED and Sport Technology packages, and the latter's price drops to $1,200, since it doesn't include the around-view monitor or parking assistant (both are already standard).

CarsDirect Tip

The base QX30 is rather austere for this class of vehicle — you can't get power seats, leather, or all-wheel drive. We consider the Luxury model acceptable, but its lack of options is a downer. That makes the Premium the logical choice for most buyers. Just be careful of INFINITI's tangled web of option packages – it's very easy to add $5,000 to the QX30's starting price.
