My 2018 QX30 - love the way it handles, feels safe
JM, 1/26/2018
I'm starting to get used to driving this crossover, after 30+ years of driving BMW sedans, so I'm not yet totally comfortable. I bought this car because I needed its safety features that few other cars have at this time. I specifically love the blind spot warning and parking sensors, plus the 360 degree live view. The self-parking feature was a requirement for me, and it works great! It takes corners nicely and holds the road. Negatives are: loud engine, poor placement of some of the controls (very hard to see and to reach while driving), not enough USB ports, voice controls don't that respond well enough to my commands, no onboard computer to store my music, and it's disappointingly small. The price is exceptionally high, and the gas mileage is not great. Overall, I'm happy with the vehicle, but wish I would have noticed some of the negatives before purchasing.
Infiniti is like family to me
Lynn, 1/9/2018
I have driven an Infiniti G35 coupe for 15 years, got it when they first came out in 2003. My husband wanted me to find a more practical (i.e. cargo carrying) vehicle so I would stop borrowing his car. I looked around but kept going back "home" to Infiniti. I liked the look, size and handling of the QX30. I would have preferred a hybrid but settled for a known commodity. I like the car - it is the "sport model". I am trying to drive it in "E" "Economy Mode" even though I am used to the acceleration of my old "G" car. So far it is only averaging about 25 MPG H/C. That was advertised at 31 on their sales sticker. Also I lost my "heat seats" from previous cars and the back hatch does not have an automated release (WHAT???) for 37k it definitely needs a button opener for the back hatch. I like the car, I like Infiniti.

More about the 2018 INFINITI QX30

The 2018 Infiniti QX30 is one of a handful of offerings in the subcompact luxury crossover segment. It has minimal to no options at the base and lower levels, while higher trims have access to additional equipment.

There are four trims available for the 2018 QX30; base, Luxury, Premium and Sport. The base model is priced quite competitively within the segment and comes decently equipped with the same turbocharged inline-four engine that powers all models, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, 7-inch Infiniti InTouch infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system with HD and satellite radio and a USB ports. The small price jump to the Luxury trim will be worth it for most people, adding power and heat to the front seats along with premium leather upholstery. You can also specify all-wheel drive at this trim level.

The jump to the Premium trim is similar to the move from base to Luxury, but it's where the essential options like the Technology package become available. And due to the visibility issues in the QX30, the driver's aids that come in the Tech package are invaluable. Aside from access to the packages, you also gain a Bose audio system, a panoramic sunroof, LED foglights, and rain-sensing wipers. At this level, however, the Infiniti QX30 is beginning to look like less of a bargain.

For those who want to go a step further up the price ladder, and over on the sport spectrum, there's the QX30 Sport. It's pricier than that of a Premium trim model with all-wheel drive and isn't offered with all-wheel drive. It does a lower-riding sport-tuned suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels with run-flat summer tires, front and rear parking sensors, unique sport front and rear lower fascias, body-color side sill panels, a black-colored grille, front sport seats with synthetic-suede seat trim with leatherette upholstery, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and a key item from the technology package; the 360-degree camera system. Considering how stiff we found the all-wheel-drive Premium model with its raised suspension, we imagine the Sport's ride to be fairly punishing if your daily commute roads aren't butter-smooth.

Comparing the 2018 QX30 to the rest of the segment, there's money to be saved at the lower trim levels. However the ideal configuration is going to bump the final price well above where the QX30 starts, which somewhat weakens the case for it. Still, the QX30 does have its strengths, which will be all the reason to choose it over another. You can compare the QX30 against others in the class or find the exact QX30 model you want here on Edmunds.
