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
