2017 INFINITI QX30

Exterior Design

The combination of a low-slung roofline, high stance and crossover appearance creates a striking visual impact. The versatile look endows the QX30 with a "go-anywhere" attitude, ready to take on all driving conditions - without compromising the high quality finish that buyers associate with premium rivals.

The elevated dimensions make for a confident and relaxing drive, while ascribing to the QX30's versatile character. The tall overall height helps improve forward visibility, aided by a slim A-pillar design, while the taller ride height allows for a higher hip point, improving ease of ingress and egress.

Standard exterior features include signature LED daytime running lights and auto on/off halogen headlights, with available LED headlights with Active Front lighting System (AFS) and auto high/low beam function and LED fog lights. In addition to the standard auto-dimming (driver's side), power-folding and heated outside mirrors with puddle lamps, a variety of treatments for the outside mirror housings (body-color, black, Satin Silver) are available to provide a more personalized appearance. A panoramic moonroof with power sunshade and roof rails are also offered.

Interior Design

The bold Infiniti design approach continues inside the stunning QX30, challenging traditional standards of symmetry with its expressive, modern and dynamic interior.

Premium materials and processes were selected by the Infiniti designers in order to create a modern-looking and luxurious cabin. The standard interior is finished in high quality black Fibretec, while optional black or beige Nappa leather appointments (standard on QX30 Luxury) deliver an even more premium finish.

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 minimise pressure on back muscles - while a wider fitting shape and soft seat cushion also provides enhanced support.

A versatile attitude and drivetrain

The new QX30's advanced powertrain delivers a confidence-inspiring, dynamic driving experience aided by available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. The standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged unit is rated at 208 horsepower at 5,500 rpm, with peak torque of 258 lb-ft available from 1,200 rpm. The QX30 also includes an idle stop-start system (ISS) in combination with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

All 2017 QX30 models feature a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission system. The dual-clutch intelligently pre-selects gears so the next shift is always ready to go, while manual mode lets the driver control gear changes when desired. Delivering seamless acceleration at any speed and in any gear, the application of torque is almost uninterrupted during gear changes, reducing lurching while in motion and between shifts. Paddle shifters are standard.

The QX30 Luxury AWD and QX30 Premium AWD models come equipped with Infiniti's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system.

Intuitive technologies enhance an involving, safe driving experience

The 2017 QX30, as expected of any Infiniti, offers a range of active safety and hazard avoidance technologies that enhance the driving experience.

In a first for Infiniti, the QX30 Sport features the new Intelligent Park Assist system, which uses 12 sensors to determine if a potential parking spot is the right size. If it is, the driver simply presses a button to confirm and operate the accelerator, shifter and brake pedal. The QX30 will park itself smoothly in parallel or reverse-in parking spots*. Intelligent Park Assist is also available on all other QX30 models as part of the optional Technology Package.

Other available QX30 safety, security and driver's assistance features include Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Forward Emergency Braking (FEB).

The QX30 also includes dual-stage front supplemental air bags, front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, front knee supplemental air bags and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor.

The QX30 Luxury AWD and QX30 Premium AWD models come equipped with an Infiniti's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. The drivetrain is able to send up to 50 percent of the engine's power and torque to the rear axle to maintain traction on slippery surfaces and in inclement weather, enhancing a feeling of control and confidence when driving. For example, if wheel slip is detected by sensors, braking is applied to the slipping wheel, while torque is sent to the gripping wheel for additional stability.
