Equipment and handling
While it resembles its sibling Q30, the Infiniti QX30 has a higher stance, body cladding and this is a crossover that's worth considering. Infiniti is trying to carve out a part of the market so the firm is offering a good car with lots of equipment that also features part-time all-wheel drive. This means the QX30 offers good levels of grip on slippery surfaces and it's a great car to drive around town. However, it really does enjoy long motorway journeys with the comfortable cabin being a pleasant place to spend time. There is a good infotainment system on board with a 7-inch touchscreen featuring a built-in satnav and voice recognition. The suspension has been clearly been geared towards comfort, so even rough roads are dealt with easily though cornering at speed will deliver body roll - but nothing too unsettling. The interior is similar to the Q30 so it is well finished and well-designed. Some of the safety features include a moving object detection system, automatic parking which many may find helpful and there's a 360° camera to help protect the car when being driven. Essentially, the Infinity QX30 is an interesting creation in the competitive premium compact SUV market and for those who want a stylish and well-built car with lots of equipment, then this could be the one for you.
