The 2018 BMW X4 xDrive28i is already a potent little performer and will satisfy the majority of drivers. Almost all of the features from the range-topping M40i are available as options, so you won't be missing much other than the overabundance of power.

PROS
Powerful yet efficient engine choices
Interior quality well represents the luxury class
Ride quality is smooth yet handling is sporty

CONS
Rearward visibility is compromised
Cargo capacity is much smaller than rivals
Limited rear-seat space

The 2018 BMW X4 takes today’s trend toward swoopier SUVs and packages it with a roundel up front. It’s entertaining and a looker, but not all that practical.

Pros
Compelling shape
Exciting performance from M40i
Well-equipped at base trim level
Excellent 8-speed automatic

Cons
Pricey at more than $48,000 to start
$2,000 for CarPlay? Really?
Rear seat head room is compromised
Cargo area is oddly shaped

The 2018 Infiniti QX30 stands apart from the crowd based on its styling, but it’s also worth considering for its zippy handling.

Pros
Stand-out style
Comfortable, refined interior
Handles well
Lots of trim levels

Cons
Tight inside
Twitchy throttle feel
Styling overwrought to some
Expensive with options

The 2018 Infiniti QX30 ranked #4 in Luxury Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Infiniti QX30 has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Handsome cabin with high-grade materials
Lots of features for a low price
Longer warranty than rivals

Cons
Small cargo area
Poor rearward visibility

By: 
usnews.com

If you've landed on the Infiniti QX30 as your next vehicle, we recommend the Premium AWD trim. It not only comes with a number of great features, but it also offers the Technology package that helps to alleviate the QX30's blind spots.

PROS
Strong acceleration and sharp handling
High-quality interior materials
Powerful and confident brakes
Interior controls are easy to locate and use

CONS
Less usable cargo space than its competitors
Interior quarters are cramped, especially for rear passengers
Drive modes are either laggy or frenetic
Ride comfort is compromised by the sporty suspension
