The upcoming 2020 Infiniti QX30 will arrive once again. However, a new model won’t introduce significant upgrades. Whatsoever, this compact crossover could be a carryover. Interestingly, some rumors are suggesting the end of the production for the QX30 model. It doesn’t make sense, especially in today’s world packed with crossovers and SUVs.
A more likely outcome is the end of the production in Europe only. However, the 2020 QX30 will surely arrive in North America. New-gen model is still not coming. On top of that, no one knows when will that happen. QX30 shares plenty of similarities with the Mercedes GLA-Class. On top of that, QX30 will keep its affordable price for such a great luxury and great performances.
Exterior is Unchanged
The all-new 2020 Infiniti QX30 will continue with its upscale and attractive design. However, we don’t expect major changes to happen. Whatsoever, new QX30 could be a complete carryover. That means the 2020 model will look exactly the same as the current one. Knowing that QX30 will remain handsome and sharp. Some parts are looking really aggressive. We like the relatively fresh swoopy roofline. Moreover, this crossover wears beautiful lines and creases.
The shape looks really impressive and exterior features are looking perfect. On the other hand, all of the features will stay intact. That includes the grille, headlights, taillights, bumpers and standard 18-inch wheels. QX30 will offer three trim levels like the current model. Furthermore, Mercedes GLA looks very similar to the Infiniti’s compact crossover. The two will share the same platform and much more.
2020 QX30 Interior Updates
The cabin of the all-new crossover will also remain. However, that is a good thing. As you probably know, Infiniti offers an impressive cabin with upscale materials and modern features. When we talk about the best interior design in the compact crossover segment, we have to include new 2020 Infiniti QX30. Luxury is all over the place. Everything starts with the shiny chrome trims. Cloth upholstery is standard and it provides great comfort.
Legroom is ample, but taller passengers can have problems with headroom. Cargo area offers 19.2 cubic feet of space. Tech-wise, QX30 comes with a 7.0-inch display. The infotainment system offers good response and great user experience. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also in the offer. Moreover, compact crossover offers keyless ignition, rearview camera and dual-zone climate control as standard. Optional Nappa leather seats are very luxurious. Speaking of optional equipment, you can buy a premium sound system, panoramic moonroof, and power-adjustable front seats.
Engine Specs, Fuel Economy, Transmission
Even under the hood, the things will remain. That means the 2020 Infiniti QX30 will continue to offer the same 2.0-liter engine. This four-cylinder unit comes with a turbocharger and it produces 210 horsepower. On top of that, the turbo engine offers 260 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is available, just like on the current model.
This engine is available on all three trim levels. Front-wheel drive is standard but Infiniti offers an optional AWD system. With the front-wheel-drive setup, QX30 delivers 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. AWD configuration slightly lowers fuel efficiency.
2020 Infiniti QX30 Price and Release Date
The brand-new 2020 Infiniti QX30 will keep the prices intact. That means you can get this compact crossover for $31,000. This is an affordable price for such a great level of luxury. On top of that, performance is good and fuel economy is above average for the segment.
Infiniti QX30 will be discounted in Europe for 2020. However, this crossover will continue with the production in the United States. Infiniti will release its new model in three-month time.
