Infiniti QX30 GT 2016 review: snapshot

Infiniti Infiniti Reviews Infiniti QX30 Infiniti QX30 Reviews Infiniti QX30 2016 SUV Best SUV Cars Infiniti SUV Range Prestige & Luxury Cars Car Reviews


  • A baby crossover with a bit of panache
  • All-wheel-drive


  • Quite expensive in its competitive subset
  • No reversing camera

The $48,900 QX30 GT is the entry-level small high-riding crossover for Infinti, and it sits below the range-topping QX30 Premium, which retails for $56,900 before on-road costs.

The QX30 GT comes with cloth trim, LED headlights, Brembo brakes with sliding calipers and rear parking sensors. It misses out on a rear view camera, however.

The UK-built QX30 comes with a Mercedes-Benz sourced 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine that makes 155kW and 350Nm. It’s teamed with a seven-speed DSG.
