When the groundbreaking INFINITI QX30 first hit the scene last year, it stood apart from every other small crossover on the market. The 2018 model is just as spectacular. Its swooping body lines and piercing headlights will make everyone take a second glance. However, the QX30 offers more than just dynamic styling. It is also among the most fun-to-drive SUVs in the class. Strong fuel economy and a luxurious cabin push the QX30 a few more notches ahead of the competition.

Let’s take a look at how the 2018 INFINITI QX30 compares to the 2017 INFINITI QX30.


The 2018 INFINITI QX30 continues to offer the same great features as before. Even the base model comes loaded with plenty of high-tech goodies. Featuring a multi-function controller mounted along the console, INFINITI’s InTouch infotainment is a blast to use. Voice controls help minimize unnecessary driving distractions. Some of the other standard niceties include a backup camera, dual USB ports, and Bluetooth technology. If you desire a bit more bass in your music, step up to the premium Bose sound system. INFINITI offers a few additional luxuries as well. When leaving home on a cold morning, the heated leather seats will immediately begin to warm your body. A lot of drivers will also like the available panoramic sunroof.

Powertrain And Performance

The 2017 Q50 2.0t models are powered by a 2.0L turbocharged engine that puts out a total of 208 horsepower. The 3.0t versions have a 3.0L turbocharged engine that makes 300 horsepower, and the Red Sport 400 has a more powerful V6 that produces 400 horsepower. Seven-speed automatic transmission is the only choice, but buyers can choose either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The 2018 models are listed according to their engine displacement, similar to the 2017 versions. The 300-horsepower engines are twin-turbo design. Performance packages include the addition of Dynamic Digital Suspension and larger, more efficient performance brakes.


Like the 2017 INFINITI QX30, the 2018 model is engineered to provide excellent crash protection. Your passengers will definitely be able to enjoy a safe ride. Powerful brakes give you an extra degree of protection. While the standard backup camera is a major convenience, you can opt for a more advanced Around View Monitor. Not only does this camera system provide a 360-degree view, but it also features Moving Object Detection. INFINITI is among the automotive world’s leaders in safety technology. When switching lanes, the optional blind-spot monitor immediately detects any oncoming vehicles. If you happen to become momentarily distracted, automatic emergency braking will provide an additional peace of mind. Intelligent Park Assist and lane departure warning are also offered.
