The QX30 holds a unique position in the segment, bridging the gap between premium compact rivals and larger crossover models. Its crossover-style versatility extends from unique design appeal and a wide range of comfort, convenience, safety and dynamic features, along with an elevated ride height and high-stability drivetrain designed to give drivers an added level of confidence.
The elevated dimensions make for a confident and relaxing drive, while ascribing to the QX30’s versatile character. The tall overall height helps improve the forward view, aided by a slim A-pillar design, while the taller ride height allows for a higher hip point, improving ease of ingress and egress.
Refinement and comfort is also a core appeal of the QX30’s interior. Comfort is guaranteed thanks to an advanced seat design, which makes use of INFINITI’s advanced spinal support research and “Zero Gravity” technology. The seat backs have been carefully engineered to match the curvature of the spine, providing consistent spinal support by more equally distributing load across the seat to minimize pressure on back muscles, while a wider fitting shape and soft seat cushion also provide enhanced support.
INFINITI’s InTouch™ infotainment system, first introduced on the INFINITI Q50, provides highly intuitive finger touch and swipe control through a 7.0-inch touch-screen HMI (human machine interface). INFINITI Voice Recognition interacts with the InTouch™ infotainment system to control audio and navigation commands.
The 2018 QX30’s advanced powertrain delivers a confidence-inspiring, dynamic driving experience aided by available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.
The standard 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged unit is rated at 208 horsepower at 5,500 rpm, with peak torque of 350 Nm available from 1,200 – 4,400 rpm. This engine has been engineered to blend responsive performance with enhanced fuel efficiency. It features a lightweight aluminium block and cylinder head with chain-driven dual-overhead camshafts, die-cast aluminium cylinder crankcase and optimized crank assembly, resulting in further weight savings, reduced friction and improved efficiency. The QX30 also includes an idle stop-start system in combination with the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. The engine was developed in conjunction with Daimler and is sourced from Kolleda, Germany.
All 2018 QX30 models feature a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission system.
