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.
