Shop new Infiniti QX30 listings: https://goo.gl/z6AJhR The 2017 Infiniti QX30 is the result of a surprising arrangement between Renault, Infiniti’s parent company, and Mercedes-Benz. Infiniti wanted a premium compact crossover in a hurry, so rather than starting from scratch, it built the new QX30 on the Mercedes GLA’s platform. George Kennedy reports that Infiniti did a good job tweaking the details to hide the QX30’s Benz DNA, at least outside, and he also enjoyed driving the QX30 a lot more than the GLA. While the QX30 looks good and can be fun in Sport driving mode, it doesn’t offer a lot of utility or cargo space. Its 34 cubic feet with the rear seats down falls short of the Audi Q3’s 48.2 and the BMW X1’s 58.7. And while many competitors offer a hands-free or at least power liftgate, QX30 owners will have to open and close their hatches with their hands, without assistance. The QX30’s infotainment system came from Infiniti, not Mercedes-Benz, and that’s a definite positive. The system’s voice-recognition software isn’t top-notch, but Kennedy appreciated having a real touchscreen, rather than having to use a controller on the center console. He also very much liked the surround-view system, which Infiniti does particularly well, and the Intelligent Cruise Control++ system.

interior "While slightly more mundane, the interior is still very premium, undoubtedly on par with a product hailing from Germany, bringing leather, wood and aluminum to the party." Inside, the Q30 breaks a little bit more from the concept, but still maintains that asymmetric layout. Also, the exterior’s wavy, undulating design elements reappear on the dash, chrome-trimmed vents and center stack. While slightly more mundane, the interior is still very premium, undoubtedly on par with a product hailing from Germany, bringing leather, wood and aluminum to the party. There are soft-touch materials in the door trim and armrests, and Dinamica (an Italian-made faux suede) on the roofline and pillars. There are three available interior color schemes available: “City Black,” which offers black upholstery and purple stitching, “Café Teak,” which offers a combination of black and brown upholstery with black stitching, and “Gallery White,” which offers white leather upholstery with red accents. In keeping with the Q30’s aspirations for a refined ride, a good deal of attention was paid to NVH (Noise/Vibration/Harshness). Using something called the Articulation Index, Infiniti measured the voice volume needed to hold an understandable conversation when the car is in motion, consequently claiming a 10 percent improvement over the “leading segment competition” while traveling at 75 mph. Assisting this is Active Noise Cancellation technology, which uses the stereo to issue sound waves that counteract engine and road noise. The seats were designed to match the curve of the passenger’s spine, making them much more supportive. Sports seats are also offered as an available feature, a first for the luxury-inclined Infiniti brand (the sports seats still come with eight-way adjustability and power lumbar support). For infotainment, the latest version of Infiniti’s InTouch system comes with a touchscreen easily accessible from the driver’s seat. And since this model was designed in part for owners leading an “active” lifestyle, there’s lots of space for storage in the rear –13 cubic-feet, to be exact. Drivetrain The Q30 may be a new model for Infiniti, but the automaker decided to base it off some tried-and-true underpinnings, starting with the Mercedes’ MFA architecture. You may have heard of it – it’s the same bones that hold together the 2016 Mercedes-Benz A-Class , the 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class , the 2014-2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class . From there, Infiniti reports that more than 750 engineers from Japan and Europe got to work developing the Q30, searching for just the right equilibrium between ride refinement and handling prowess. To this end, 50 different shock absorber variations were considered before the final decision was made. The suspension consists of MacPherson struts up front and a multilink layout in the rear – just like the Mercedes A-Class, and pretty standard for this segment. There are, however, a few differences between trim levels, with the base and Premium Q30 geared towards smoothness and comfort, while the Sport is logically lower and stiffer. Speed sensitive-steering rounds out the handling, offering a light feel around town and greater resistance as speeds rise. U.S. customers get only one engine option: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas unit that makes 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, across the pond, buyers will have a range of engines to choose from, including a 1.6-liter four-cylinder in two states of tune (either 120-horsepower or 154-horsepower), a 107-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel and a 168-horsepower 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel. Europe-bound Premium and Sport models also get the U.S.-spec 208-horsepower 2.0-liter gasoline four-cylinder. Routing power is a slick seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, offering either fully automatic gear changes or hands-on paddle shifting. There’s also a six-speed manual available for third-pedal fans. Finally, sometimes all that matters is if you sound fast, regardless of actual speed potential. To that end, the Q30 comes with Active Sound Enhancement, which changes the exhaust note to offer better acoustic entertainment when accelerating through the gears. How BMW-esque.

Hot News !!! 2018 Infiniti QX30 Interior and Infotainment Overview -
New doesn’t mean bad, and this Infiniti QX30 could well make more sense than any other Infiniti given the high demand for compact premium SUVs of this ilk, not to mention the company’s well-rooted global reputation in the upmarket 4x4 classes.
As the name suggests, this is very much a derivative of the Q30 hatchback, itself based on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
