NASHVILLE, Tennessee – The 2017 Infiniti QX30, an all-new family of compact crossovers, will begin reaching Infiniti dealerships in mid-2016, according to Infiniti.
The vehicle was previewed in concept form earlier this year at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show. Among its competitors are the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
The 2017 Infiniti QX30 will come in three versions: base QX30, midlevel QX30S and top-of-the-line QX30 AWD. Each will feature unique front and rear fascias, wheels and interior trim.
A 208-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is fitted to all models.
The base QX30 – sold in Europe and other regions outside the Americas as the Q30 – is front-wheel drive and comes well equipped.
The sporty QX30S features a lower stance, more aggressive front and rear fascias, cross-drilled front brake rotors, 19-inch wheels and performance tires. It is sold in other markets as the Q30S.
The QX30 AWD is equipped with an intelligent all-wheel-drive system and slightly higher ride height.
Edmunds says: Infiniti is entering a fast-growing segment of the premium crossover market, giving luxury shoppers yet another excellent choice.
