Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2019, the QX30 merely adds new option packages for the Luxe model. These include the Navigation package with Infiniti's InTouch services that allow users to unlock and lock the doors and schedule maintenance remotely using a smartphone app, and the 19-inch Wheel package that adds—you guessed it—19-inch Gun Metallic wheels rolling on run-flat summer tires. Otherwise, the QX30 lineup carries over unchanged.

Pros
Concept-car styling,
nicely crafted interior,
Sport model truly feels sporty.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
cramped cabin,
fully loaded versions are pricey.

By:

The 2019 INFINITI QX30 comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.Forward collision mitigation now standard on all trims.Updated trim level names: Pure, Luxe, Sport and Essential.Panoramic sunroof now standard on Luxe and above.

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

The 2019 Infiniti QX30 stands out with style and sprightliness but makes compromises in interior space.

Pros
Swoopy style
Upscale interior
Spry handling
Available all-wheel drive

Cons
Limited interior space
Inconsistent throttle
Style over practicality
Expensive

The 2019 Lexus NX 300h returns unchanged.We suggest adding the Comfort package for its heated and ventilated front seats and blind-spot monitoring. Because you can't get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration on the NX, adding the Navigation package may also be a wise choice.

Pros
Great fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Back seat has enough room for adults
Very quiet cabin at highway speeds

Cons
Limited cargo capacity
Infotainment interface can be distracting to use

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Lexus NX remains a boldly styled, comfortable compact luxury crossover with solid standard features.

Pros
Comfortable front seats
Thrifty hybrid
Now-familiar styling
F Sport handling and seats
CarPlay, finally

Cons
Polarizing design
Sub-par gas mileage on NX 300
Intrusive road noise
Sluggish infotainment

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2019 Lexus NX Hybrid ranked #10 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Lexus NX Hybrid has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros

Great fuel economy
Excellent predicted reliability rating
