As critical thinkers, we all drive with purpose; that purpose may stem from wanting to get to work on time or hoping to avoid long lines at the coffee shop, but no matter the reason, we require a vehicle that is as purpose-driven as we are. Enter: The new 2018 INFINITI QX30, a luxury crossover that is purposefully designed to handle all of life’s everyday tasks.
What’s so special about the 2018 QX30? For starters, it dazzles the pupils; it shimmers and shines just as much in the driveway as it does on I-81. It also peels around tight turns when you need to, brakes on a dime, and absorbs Roanoke’s pothole nuisances gracefully. Essentially, INFINITI’s newest crossover seamlessly connects “practical you” with the one that just wants to have fun—and everyone at our Roanoke INFINITI dealership can’t help but adore it. Read on to become a lovestruck admirer of the INFINITI QX30, too.
All About Performance
Equipped in all four trims (base QX30, Luxury, Premium, and Sport) is a sprightly 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder. It pumps out 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque when mated to the paddle-shiftable 7-speed automatic transmission, which uses separate clutches for even and odd gears. Front-wheel drive models return 33 mpg on the highway, while AWD versions bring in 30 mpg.
The QX30 Sport is playful enough on the road to quicken your pulse, but its precise handling is what makes this INFINITI soar to greater heights. With an athletic stance and low ride height, this is a crossover built to excite and eager to try new things. It shifts smoothly and steadfastly holds the right gears. Steering is responsive yet firm and a comfort-tuned suspension nullifies bumpy roads and pushes you to be aggressive around the bends.
Style & Sophistication
As an INFINITI, the QX30 delivers the refined traits and high-end qualities you’d expect. If its sloped roof, set of crescent-shaped LED lights, and dual front grille doesn’t catch your eye, the hatchback-like rear should. This “Z-shape flair” is sharp enough to stand out in a crowded crossover field. Premium Nappa leather seats and dashboard trimmings are highlights to the QX30 Luxury model’s cabin. Step up to the Premium trim, and you’ll get automatic wipers, a gorgeous panoramic moonroof, and a 10-speaker Bose® audio system with 2 USB ports. Not to be outdone, the QX30 Sport includes upgraded 19-inch wheels, a surround-view camera, breathable leatherette seats, and navigation.
Finding a favorite feature in the 2018 QX30 is no simple task—there are so many exceptional pieces of tech—but we’ll narrow down our list for you.
- Spinal Support Seats – All QX30 models come with perhaps the most comfortable front bucket seats in the class. Frequent cross-country travelers, meet your next co-pilot.
- Intelligent Park Assist – If you struggle with parallel parking, even on the less-crowded streets of Salem, VA, here’s a tip: let the QX30 do it for you. This driver-assist safety feature uses 4 sensors to help you slide into those tight spots; all you need to do is press a button and operate the pedals!
- InTouch™ Navigation – You can’t always take the familiar route home; sometimes life throws you a detour, forcing you to take roads less-often traveled. In those instances, just tap the QX30’s intuitive InTouch Navigation System, enter your destination, and you’ll be home in time for dinner. No hassles, delays, or dimwitted instructions.
- Intelligent Cruise Control – Don’t stress out over hitting lunchtime traffic. Set your speed and distance from the vehicle in front of you, and let Intelligent Cruise Control do all the work. When the traffic slows, so will you. When the traffic stops, just re-engage and resume your regularly scheduled program.
Compact crossovers don’t come better packaged than this.
