In the segment of subcompact luxury crossover, the QX30 stands out for many reasons. It is a good-looking, comfortable SUV, which features an opulent cabin and plenty of standard equipment. The initial model came about three years ago. Therefore, many believe it is time to see a mid-cycle update. At this point, we are still waiting to hear something from the officials, so take the following details with a dose of a reserve. In any case, the 2020 Infiniti QX30 will continue to deliver lots of great characteristics. A possible update would probably bring novelties in terms of the style, while the essentials would probably remain unchanged. Therefore, count on the same mechanics and engines in the offer, while the interior could be upgraded with additional standard features. Despite the possible update, we probably won’t see any earlier arrival than usual. The 2020 Infiniti QX30 should hit the market late in the year.
2020 Infiniti QX30 Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Infiniti QX30 definitely won’t change. Count of a familiar layout, which based on, now, the previous generation of the more familiar Mercedes-Benz GLA. Two models ride on the same platform and share most mechanical parts, including two engines. In terms of the styling, the QX30 comes with its own look, based on the brand’s current design language. In practice, this means a lot of curvy lines, though we must consider the possibility of a mid-cycle update. So, count on possible new aesthetical details. Most of them would, naturally, come to the front end, which could receive novelties on the grille, bumper and maybe even headlights. A couple of changes on the rear end would come as well. Still, we have no doubt that the overall shape would remain the same, with familiar roofline, but with new wheels in the offer.
2020 Infiniti QX30 Interior
The interior design is definitely one of the strongest points of this subcompact crossover. It offers a pretty amazing level of quality, considering the segment. The dashboard looks very classy, while most areas feature hi-end, soft-touch materials. Seats are, typically for Nissan, very massive and supportive, some of the bests in the class. When it comes to the leg and headroom, the first row is pretty generous. Typically for subcompact crossover, the second row could be tight for taller passengers. A big complaint goes for rearward visibility, which is poor, due to a low roofline and thick pillars. Another weak point is sound insulation since the cabin can become quite noisy at higher speeds. Still, this is one of the aspects that could be easily solved with the upcoming update. When it comes to the cargo volume, most rivals are better. You can count on modest 19 cubic feet behind rear seats and 34 cubic feet of overall cargo capacity.
The possible update could bring a lot of novelties in terms of standard equipment. Still, we must say that the current model already comes with plenty of standard features and lots of options. In terms of tech features, all models come with things like a 7-inch touch screen, satellite radio, HD Radio, a six-speaker stereo, two USB ports, Bluetooth etc. In higher trims, you can also get a premium audio system, navigation, panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot and more.
When it comes to safety features, all models are equipped with systems like
2020 Infiniti QX30 Engines
The powertrain section completely relies on engines from Mercedes-Benz. In North America, all models are powered with a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine, which delivers around 210 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Such amount of power provides pretty decent acceleration and we must add that the crossover’s ride is pretty balanced, gentle but also quite dynamical. One of the strongest points is the fuel economy. This engine ensures pretty impressive 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, which are some of the best ratings in the class.
In other parts of the world, you can also get a 2.2-liter diesel engine, which is good for 170 horses and 258 pound-feet of torque.
Both engines come paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which works pretty smooth.
2020 Infiniti QX30 Release Date and Price
Despite the possible mid-cycle update, the 2020 Infiniti QX30 is expected to come sometime late in the years. We also don’t expect bigger changes in price. So, base models should go around 30.000, while top-range versions could easily go over 43.000 dollars. Key rivals are models like BMW X1, Audi Q3, Volvo XC40 etc.
