Infiniti is the luxury vehicle division of the Japanese automaker Nissan. The company breeds Japanese perfection in automobile design and manufacture with the newest trends of luxury in the market.
The QX30 was introduced by Infiniti in 2016 as the company’s flagship midsize luxury crossover. It is based on the Q30 model of the company and includes various performance upgrades such as increased ride height.
Only one generation of the vehicle went on sale as it was discontinued in 2019. If you want to buy an SUV that offers all the luxury features without burning a fat hole in your pocket, a used QX30 can be a great option.
Is INFINITI QX30 the right car for you?
Engine From Mercedes
The QX30’s power plant is from Germany. It is the Mercedes-Benz OM651 engine with 1.6L to 2.2L displacement options available. The engine is Euro 5 compliant and is extremely reliable. It produces up to 204 horsepower while delivering a combined fuel economy of 28mpg.
The QX30 comes for sale with a 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission. This makes the car accelerate faster when you want, while also ensuring high fuel efficiency.
The QX30 comes in AWD configuration with active yaw control. This is a computerized system that actively alters the amount of torque going to all four wheels of the car and uses brakes to make sure the tires do not lose grip on any surface.
Notable features of INFINITI QX30
Spacious and Innovative
The QX30 has a massive 19.2 cubic feet cargo hold that can be extended to 34 cubic feet by folding the rear seats down. The best part is the motion-sensing trunk door. The door is fully powered and you only have to put your foot under the sensor to open the boot.
Blacked Out Interior
You can get the QX30 with an all-black interior. You don’t get a lot of choice in used cars but since Infiniti offered a number of different interior configurations, you can buy one that has the seats and color scheme of your preference.
The QX30 comes for sale with the company’s latest I-LED design, diamond-cut alloy wheels, and the signature double-arch grille from Infiniti. That, and the premium paint job, make the car look real premium and expensive.
