The 2018 INFINITI QX30 is a mid-size crossover SUV that has a lineup of six trims. The 2018 BMW X1 is a compact crossover SUV that's available in two models. Both vehicles run on turbocharged engines, but the QX30 offers better overall handling. The INFINITI InTouch infotainment system is also superior to BMW's iDrive platform.


A 2.0 L turbo engine with four cylinders powers the 2018 INFINITI QX30. You get a maximum of 258 pound-feet of torque from this compact engine. Also having a displacement of 2.0 L and a turbocharger, the TwinPower engine in the BMW X1 produces a peak torque output of 258 lb-ft. This signature powertrain is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with the STEPTRONIC function. Running on double clutches, the seven-speed transmission system in the QX30 is more versatile. You can also use the Eco Mode and Manual Mode to customize the gear settings in this premium INFINITI crossover SUV. Rolling on the Intelligent AWD, this model gets a good grip on any road. Similarly, the BMW X1 is fitted with the signature xDrive AWD system that creates reliable traction.


The signature InTouch platform is set up in the infotainment system of the 2018 INFINITI QX30. A navigation system with the Lane Guidance application and 3-D maps is integrated into this signature multimedia hub. The InTouch suite includes plenty of other utilities for the road, such as functions to handle incoming text messages and emails. Of course, this platform is compatible with the latest version of wireless Bluetooth technology. A 10-speaker sound system by Bose is optional in this INFINITI crossover SUV. The multimedia system in the 2018 BMW X1 comes with the iDrive 6.0 software, which includes GPS navigation and other apps. However, the InTouch portal offers more connectivity options than the iDrive system.


As the name implies, the Forward Emergency Braking in the 2018 INFINITI QX30 provides a last-second attempt to prevent a crash with another car ahead that suddenly slows down. Capable of issuing blinking lights and loud chimes, the Blind Spot Warning alerts you of potential hazards in adjacent lanes. Additional feedback might provided by the Lane Departure Warning. Using four sensors to scan the perimeter, the Intelligent Park Assist helps you pull into and out of parallel parking spots. Some of the BMW X1's top active safety amenities include the City Collision Mitigation and Speed Limit Info. However, you need the expensive Driving Assistance Package to enjoy the benefits of these accident-avoidance features. Besides having sophisticated active safety installations, the QX30 has other traditional driving aides, like the Traction Control and Vehicle Dynamic Control. Side airbags with rollover sensors and front knee airbags are also standard in this premium INFINITI model.

Bring your family to INFINITI of Gwinnett and enjoy a test drive in the 2018 INFINITI QX30. You can then fairly compare this premium crossover SUV with the 2018 BMW X1.
