2017 Infiniti QX30 AWD

-

What if we told you that you can purchase a brand-new Mercedes-Benz for less than $32,000? Because Infiniti is basically offering just that with its all-new $30,900 2017 Infiniti QX30

-

Sharing its platform and powertrain with the Mercedes-Benz GLA250, the swoopy Infiniti has a starting price that’s $2875 less than its fraternal twin. In fact, the QX30’s base price is lower than that of the Mercedes-Benz CLA250 sedan. All QX30s are powered by a Mercedes-supplied 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque paired to seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters, although Infiniti is quick to point out that the powertrain’s tuning is done by its own engineers.

-

In order to appeal to different market segments, Infiniti splits the QX30 into three distinct variants: the standard front-wheel drive, the high-riding all-wheel drive, and the dynamic Sport. All models include dual-zone automatic climate control, LED daytime running lights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and driver’s side mirror, and a backup camera.

Standard front-wheel-drive models are available in base, Luxury, and Premium trims. Priced at $33,550, the mid-level Luxury adds a leather interior, heated seats, power seats for the driver and passenger, footwell lamps, and a rear-seat pass-through. Jumping up to the Premium trim adds $2700 to the price and brings with it a Bose audio system, a sunroof, roof rails, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and LED fog lamps. Meanwhile customers can add options including a navigation system, 19-inch wheels, an LED lighting package, and a Technology package (blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning, forward emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, and self-parking), bringing the total price to $41,800. A Gallery White package can be added for $1250 to fully-loaded QX30 Premium front-wheel-drive models; it consists of a white leather interior with red stitching and accents, as well as a unique 18-inch wheel design and satin-silver mirror caps.

Along with standard roof rails, all-wheel-drive QX30 models include an additional 1.2 inches of ride height; restyled front and rear fascias; and model-specific side sills, wheels, and fender flares. Unlike the front-wheel-drive QX30, all-wheel-drive QX30s are only available in Luxury or Premium trims; the former setting customers back $35,350, the latter $38,650. Like the front-wheel-drive model, options such as a navigation system, an LED lighting package, and a Technology package can be added. A special Cafe Teak package ($1750)—which includes brown leather upholstery, as well as real wood trim and satin-silver mirror caps—is available on fully loaded QX30 all-wheel drive Premium models and brings the crossover’s total price to $45,450.

Finally, the racy QX30 Sport sits 0.6-inch lower than the standard front-wheel-drive model (and 1.8 inches lower than the all-wheel drive QX30). Like its siblings, the Sport wears its own individual bodywork. Upping the performance factor are a set of cross-drilled brake rotors tucked behind 19-inch wheels wrapped in sticky summer tires. Inside, a flat-bottom steering wheel, aluminum pedals, and sports seats compliment the Sport’s dynamic nature. Navigation is standard, as is a 360-degree camera system and self-parking. The model starts at $39,450, though adding leather seating, the LED lighting package, and Technology package raises the price to $43,150.

While we’ve yet to test the entire QX30 line, we did put an all-wheel drive QX30 Premium through our regimen of tests and came away less than impressed with the subcompact crossover. The 2017 Infiniti QX30 goes on sale this fall.
