    The 2019 INFINITI QX30, the smallest vehicle in the manufacturer's crossover and SUV lineup, boasts an exterior that stands out, an interior that blends in, and a long list of standard equipment.

    What's New for 2019

    Minor changes for the 2019 model year include a Navigation package on the LUXE trim, a new 19-inch wheel package, and eight available exterior colors.


    Choosing Your INFINITI QX30

    Every QX30 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This is fed to the road through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with manual paddle shifters, with stop-start technology as standard. Mid-range LUXE and ESSENTIAL models are also available with all-wheel drive, automatically redirecting up to half the engine’s power to the rear axle in wet or slippery conditions. The ride height is 1.2 inches higher on AWD models, and there are bespoke lower fascias and side sills to protect the bodywork.

    With front-wheel drive, the QX30 achieves an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 27 combined. These figures drop to 21/30/25 mpg (city/highway/combined) with all-wheel drive.

    As you’d expect from a crossover, the QX30 majors on safety. Standard features include forward automatic emergency braking, cruise control, knee airbags, a rearview monitor, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. There’s voice recognition for the seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, while the INFINITI Intelligent Key system unlocks the car and automatically adjusts the seat, steering wheel, and outside mirrors to the driver’s recorded preferences. It can even store customized stereo and climate settings.

    The QX30 is available in four trims:


    Available exclusively with FWD, QX30 Pure models retail for $31,145 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). Standard features include dual-zone temperature control with rear seat vents, satellite radio, and an eight-way manually adjustable driver’s seat with four-way power lumbar. There are LED daytime running lights and automatic halogen headlights, while the heated outside mirrors benefit from power folding. There are no packages available on PURE models.


    Retailing at $33,995 with FWD and $35,995 in AWD versions, the LUXE trim adds some welcome upgrades over the PURE. The front seats gain heating and eight-way power adjustment, with memory functions for the seats and mirrors. The seats are finished in leatherette, and there’s a panoramic moonroof fitted.

    For $2,300, the Navigation Package adds a navigation system controlled through the touchscreen, plus four years of Sirius traffic information. Front and rear parking sensors are also included, alongside a surround-view monitor that detects moving objects. The other main option on the LUXE trim is an $800 package fitting 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels shod with run-flat tires on FWD models.


    Costing $40,195, every QX30 ESSENTIAL is equipped with LED headlights and rain-sensing and heated windshield wipers. There’s LED illumination and aluminum kickplates in the cabin, with a 10-speaker Bose audio system and Active Sound Enhancement improving the audio experience.

    The QX30’s standard safety features can be augmented with the $1,300 ProAssist package. This combines lane departure warnings and adaptive cruise control with automatic high beam assistance and intelligent park assist – using a dozen sensors to maneuver the vehicle perfectly within parallel or reverse-in parking spaces. The $800 19-inch Wheel Package is available on FWD models, while AWD models get access to the Cafe Teak Theme Package ($1,750) that adds silver mirror caps, a dark wood center stack and door handle trim, brown leather seating, brown leatherette door trim, dash inserts, and center console, and graphite contrast stitching, headliner, and A-pillars.


    QX30 SPORT models are available exclusively with front-wheel drive for a starting price of $41,095. This model is distinguished externally by a wealth of styling tweaks, from INFINITI-branded brake calipers and drilled discs through to chrome exhaust/trunk finishers and a gloss black grille which matches the outside mirror housings. It rides 0.6 inches lower than other FWD models, with sports seats finished in leatherette. Suede-like materials contribute to a sporty cabin ambience alongside a flat-bottom steering wheel and aluminum pedal finishers.

    With intelligent park assist fitted as standard on SPORT models, the ProAssist package costs just $800 for lane departure warning, high beam assistance, and adaptive cruise control. For $1,500, buyers can add a Leather Package which includes leather sports seating, a suede-like finish to the headlining and A-pillars, and satin silver mirror caps. The $1,450 City Black Theme Package takes this further with leatherette finishes across the console, dash, and doors, purple seat stitching and key fob detailing, and purple accents on the 19-inch wheels.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Of the 2019 INFINITI QX30 lineup, SPORT models will appeal to buyers wanting a stylish-looking crossover, but the LUXE arguably offers a superior blend of economy and practicality. The Navigation Package is an expensive option, but it’s worth adding for the practicality and safety improvements it brings.
