Who says you can't always get what you want? With Infiniti's all-new QX30, you get an affordably priced vehicle that borrows the best from a coupe, a hatchback and a crossover. The hatchback influence on the QX30 provides ample cargo space, while the sleek and sporty coupelike styling helps separate it from the more drab sedan and crossover models for sale. And because the QX30 is a crossover, you'll find a tall ride height and handling that is more responsive and nimble than your neighbor's large SUV. It's a great design and ambitious project from the luxury brand, but does it work in practice?
Overall, the compact crossover mostly achieves its target. Starting at just over $30,000, the QX30 gets you through the door of Infiniti ownership without sacrificing your child's tuition. The underlying body structure and powertrain may be borrowed from the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, but it certainly feels more refined than its sister thanks to its additional powertrain tuning and Infiniti's own suspension. This makes for fun-to-drive car with an engaging ride that's simultaneously smooth and comfortable.
Inside, the QX30 hits high marks with its modern and stylish interior that features upscale materials most commonly found in pricier competitors. Infiniti's InTouch infotainment system, accessible via a 7-inch display and control knob, is easy to use, while audio and climate controls are controlled through physical buttons and knobs. Those looking for a little more muscle with the comfortable styling may benefit from the sports-car-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel and two-tone leather and synthetic suede found in the Sport trim.
Speaking of trim levels, you'll find four main options for the QX30. The base trim offers many plush appointments given that it's a luxury crossover, while Luxury adds more posh to your car with genuine leather upholstery among other goodies. The top level, Premium, adds onto the Luxury trim by offering a better sound system, among other improvements, and the final trim, Sport, provides a different QX30 altogether, including its own sport-tuned suspension.
With any crossover trying to blend elements from sedans, SUVs, and in this case, hatchbacks, you're bound to lose out on the full experience that any one of those bring on their own. Cargo space doesn't match the capacity found in a dedicated SUV, and though still sporty, a sedan would provide a smoother ride than the QX30. While things to consider, these are small blemishes on an otherwise impressive model debut by Infiniti. Find the perfect 2017 Infiniti QX30 with help from Edmunds today.

Vehicle Premium 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 7AM)
Review Purchased my QX30 due to a job change and needing a different vehicle. I needed a good road car with a hatch for occasional supplies. It'll be just me 90% of the time and will seldom use the backseat, as we are empty nesters and my wife has a larger SUV. After a lot of research I found the QX30. Previously I owned a G37 and liked the car, but had a terrible dealer experience (in another state). I found the model I wanted, Premium black/black and test drove it. After getting multiple quotes I was able to reach a deal. The car is great. It's based on the Mercedes GLA 250, but I think the Infiniti looks much better. It handles extremely well and the twin turbo is plenty powerful with loads of torque at the low end. There are three drive modes, economy, sport and manual, which allows you to use the paddle shifters. It's quick and agile. The Bose Surround Sound is outstanding, the best sound system I've ever heard in a car. I love being able to see text messages on the screen (they are read to you while driving) and the touch screen is excellent but I prefer to use the turn knob. The interior materials are very upscale and the seats are amazingly comfortable. I feel it's a great SUV for any one who wants a great looking, sporty, excellent handling small SUV. It's ideal for empty nesters who don't need to haul a bunch of people.
