Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Another cushy compact crossover may or may not be what the world needs now, but it’s exactly what Infiniti needs. Enter the swoopy, stub-tailed QX30—which Infiniti is pitching as a “premium active crossover”—to give the brand an entrant in a segment poised for explosive growth. We tested an all-wheel-drive QX30 and found it does a reasonable job of being a cushy compact crossover, with its 8.0 inches of ground clearance, skid plates, and roof rails joining the creature comforts and chrome that come with being an Infiniti.

But those are crossovers. And as we’ve stated before, the QX30 Sport is not really a crossover, but rather a Euro hatch, one that Infiniti happily did not leave in Europe.

Pros
Expressive design, composed chassis, upscale interior.

Cons
Cramped in some dimensions, modest cargo area, transmission needs a Normal mode.

The 2017 Infiniti QX30 is a new addition to the automaker’s lineup and is its first entry to the growing luxury subcompact crossover segment.

Slotting below the aging QX50, the 2017 Infiniti QX30 is a small luxury crossover that’s available in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations. Compared to the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class (the car on which it’s based), the QX30 features a more curvaceous exterior design.

The Infiniti QX30 is shares its platform, engine and transmission with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, GLA-Class, and the not-for-U.S.-consumption A-Class hatchback

Noise inside the cabin is kept to a minimum thanks to a good amount of sound insulation and interior trim materials are high in quality. The dash layout is unique because of its asymmetrical design, but the Infiniti InTouch multimedia interface could be more intuitive. Nissan and Infiniti’s “Zero Gravity” seats come standard and have plenty of support without sacrificing comfort. Although the QX30’s rear seats can accommodate adults but head- and legroom are limited. The low roof and small rear window, however, means rear visibility is compromised due to the car’s dramatic exterior styling.

Pros
Sporty handling and smooth ride
Torque-rich turbocharged engine
Well-insulated cabin

Cons
Cargo space is on the small side
Limited rear passenger room
Steering is a little heavy

You don't have to pay a fortune to get a luxury-branded vehicle these days. The new 2017 Infiniti QX30 is reasonably priced and yet offers you more style and performance than the typical small crossover SUV. Read more to learn if the QX30 has everything you're looking for.

Infiniti considers its all-new 2017 QX30 a combination of coupe, hatchback and crossover. The way it straddles these body types can be advantageous. From a driver enjoyment perspective, you will find the QX30 more athletic and better handling than a typical SUV. Compared to a traditional sedan, the QX30's hatchback design gives you greater versatility, both in terms of its taller ride height and increased cargo capacity. Then there's the QX30's coupe-like styling, which helps it look sportier than the typical sedan or crossover. The question you might wonder, though, is whether this extensive blending results in a vehicle that delivers the best of both worlds or is diluted to the point of not excelling at anything.

Pros
Easy to maneuver around town
High-quality interior looks sharp and comes pretty well equipped
Multiple driver assistance features are available to help keep you safe.

Cons
Sport models ride firm compared to other available versions
Noticeable amount of wind and road noise at highway speeds
Cargo capacity is smaller than rival crossovers
Reflective interior trim pieces are distracting in bright-light situations.

The 2017 Lexus GX ranks 22 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Lexus GX ranks near the bottom of the luxury midsize SUV class. If you want a luxury SUV with off-road capabilities (and standard four-wheel drive), then the GX is one of the few midsize choices that will meet your criteria. It also comes standard with seating for seven. In most other respects, however, you’re better off looking at most other vehicles in the class.

Pros
Excellent off-road abilities
Intuitive technology features

Cons
Low fuel economy estimates
Timid acceleration
Unremarkable cabin materials

For an old-school SUV, the Lexus GX acquits itself quite well.Underneath its sharply-styled body and high-end interior, the Lexus GX 460 hides a utilitarian frame and a suspension shared with the foreign-market Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
Why's that important? The Prado, which is unrelated to the Land Cruiser sold at Toyota dealers in the United States, is a serious work truck designed for farmers in Australia and peacekeepers in Somalia. That helps explain some of its compromises—but despite its high step-in and quirky tailgate, the Lexus GX 460 does a lot of things very well.

Pros
Truck-based solidity
Smooth and strong V-8 engine
Plush ride quality
Comfortable interior
Off-road ability

Cons
Side-opening hatch opens away from the curb
Too-light steering
Poor gas mileage
Spongy brake pedal feel
Compromised cargo area

Lexus has added the Sport Design package to the 2017 GX 460, which includes some different wheels, a different front grille and additional exterior chrome trim pieces. Second-row captain's chairs are a new feature for the GX 460.

Pros
Capable off-road performance requires little effort from the driver
Plenty of luxury features and cabin amenities.

Cons
Poor acceleration and fuel economy from the V8 engine
Uncomfortable standard second-row bench seats
Inconvenient side-swinging rear cargo door
Relatively ponderous handling around turns.
