Infiniti QX30

  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Infiniti's small luxury SUV is based on the Mercedes-Benz GLA. The QX30 uses the GLA's 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The SUV is quick, but power delivery is uneven. It feels lethargic at low engine speeds, then the power comes on abruptly. Handling is agile and very secure, but the ride is stiff and choppy. Road noise is pronounced. The cabin is nicely finished and incorporates some Mercedes switches, buttons, and knobs, and uses Infiniti's infotainment system, which is accessed via a small touch screen or a central rotary controller. The rear seat is cramped, and visibility is wanting, particularly to the rear. Safety features such as forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard.
