2017 Infiniti QX30: Monthly Update for November 2017

by Brent Romans, Senior Editor

2017 Infiniti QX30

Where Did We Drive It?
We added a decent chunk of miles to our 2017 Infiniti QX30 this month. Josh Sadlier drove it up to Northern California for a golfing trip, and I took my family to visit relatives for Thanksgiving. The combination, plus our normal commuting, gave us about 2,000 more miles on the odometer. Our QX30 earned favorable comments overall about the way it drives and looks, but its infotainment interface drew plenty of ire this month.

2017 Infiniti QX30: Monthly Update for October 2017

2017 Infiniti QX30

Where Did We Drive It?
We didn't drive our 2017 Infiniti QX30 as much as usual last month. It seemed we couldn't escape the dark cloud hovering above it. The gloom that followed wasn't the car's, but our own, and it kept our Infiniti on the sidelines for much of October.

Early in the month the QX30 played the role of support vehicle for a video shoot. On location the driver twisted an ankle, subsequently placing her and the car out of commission for an extended period. She recovered enough to pass the key off to the next editor, who came down with the flu. More driveway time for the QX. In hopes of catching up on mileage, we sent it to Las Vegas for the weekend preceding Halloween. I was asked not to mention how much money was left there.

2017 Infiniti QX30 Premium AWD: Monthly Update for April and May 2017

2017 Infiniti QX30

Where Did We Drive It?
We spent April and May getting to know the 2017 Infiniti QX30, mostly driving it to and from the office on city streets and highway. Josh Sadlier managed to get it a little dirty, however, motoring the QX30 to a trailhead at Topanga State Park in the Los Angeles wilds. And Dan Edmunds learned firsthand that the QX30 isn't quite as advanced as it might seem, sustaining an episode of upper-arm trauma courtesy of the crossover's archaic door lock design.

2017 Infiniti QX30: Introduction

by Will Kaufman, Associate Automotive Editor

2017 Infiniti QX30

Compact crossovers are in high demand, especially in the luxury segment. Infiniti is hoping to capitalize on the trend with its new 2017 QX30. Rather than building an all-new vehicle from the ground up, however, Infiniti partnered with Mercedes-Benz to create a vehicle that mixes German parts with a Japanese design.

The QX30 shares its engine and transmission with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, while the suspension has been retuned by Infiniti. Styling, both inside and out, is where the QX30 departs from its German cousin.

What Infiniti has made is a mashup of hatchback, coupe and crossover, meant to offer athleticism, utility and looks. It's positioned as an entry-level offering for the brand, aimed at a slightly younger demographic. The QX30 is not only a new competitor in a very hot segment; it's a pivotal vehicle for a brand hungry for new customers. With that in mind, we saw it as a perfect fit for our long-term fleet.
