The edition for 2018 has just come out, and we can already speak about the next 2019 Infiniti QX30. This compact crossover is still the youngest member of the SUV segment from Nissan’s luxury branch. It doesn’t lack any modern feature. Also, its interior is packed with a lot of leather and premium materials, so the comfort is on the very high level.
Specs of the crossover launched in 2016 are the same as before. The engine is the same, a 2.0-liter turbo-four. A hybrid is a possibility for next season. Nevertheless, it is not official yet. With its dimensions, the 2019 Infiniti QX30 will be attractive. Higher ground clearance provides more space under the vehicle. The better off-road capability is certain. This crossover is getting again a Sport version as the most attractive trim level.
2019 Infiniti QX30 trim levels
The entry-level of the crossover is Base trim. It is already well equipped with plenty of advanced features. Paddle shifters and 18-inch wheels are standard for this model. Also, it will get a rearview monitor and push the start button. Just above the Base version is Luxury trim. Nappa leather, power-adjustable seats for driver and passengers and special stitching are making this model more expensive. Also, seats come with heating and memory function.
The next trim level of the 2019 Infiniti QX30 is Premium. It upgrades the Luxury model with the 10-speaker audio system. That is not all since this crossover comes with a panoramic moonroof and wipers with rain sensors. Roof rails and aluminum plates are standard. The all-wheel drive of this trim adds heated windshield washer nozzle for cold days.
2019 Infiniti QX30 Sport
Top of the level will be 2019 Infiniti QX30 Sport version. First of all, it has all the items we can find on previous trims, plus extras. It comes only with the all-wheel drive system. We will recognize it thanks to larger 19-inch wheels. Special design of the rims will be again present on this model. Sport brakes and intelligent AWD will boost driving impression. Few more exterior details will also make this SUV different than its siblings.
A 106-inch wheelbase provides an excellent maneuverability for 2019 Infiniti QX30. This is one of the advantages of this model. Also, it is not too wide, and drivers will find parking the SUV pretty easy. Width with mirrors is 82 inches. Overall length is 175 inches. The 2019 QX30 will add half of the inch to ground clearance, making the crossover more capable for an off-road drive.
2019 Infiniti QX30 specs
The drivetrain of the 2019 Infiniti QX30 remains the same 2.0-liter from its predecessor. This turbo unit can deliver 210 horses and 260 lb-ft of torque. It is possible thanks to a smooth 7-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Two drive modes are on the offer. Base, Luxury and Premium trim levels will have front-wheel drive setup. The last two, as well as the Sport , are going to have the AWD as an optional drive.
Depending on a drive method, we can get better or worse results for mileage specs. With front-wheel drive, the 2019 Infiniti QX30 will be able to return 35 mpg on highways. All-wheel drive drops these stats to 30 mpg for the open road and 26 miles per gallon combined.
The same 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit could be the base for the hybrid drivetrain. However, it will drop turbocharger. Plug-in variant of the 2019 Infiniti QX30 is not official yet. However, it will upgrade the mileage. On the other hand, we doubt it will top the power and torque stats set by the engine that uses a turbocharger. The release date of the new SUV is expected early next year, and then we will know more about the hybrid.
