After a couple of years on the market, it is hard to expect bigger changes for the 2019 Infiniti QX30. The attractive crossover came originally in 2016, based on the Mercedes GLA. While the mechanics of these two models are completely the same, Japanese manufacturer comes with a little bit different approach when it comes to styling. Engineers from the famous manufacturer wanted to take the best from three different philosophies. So, the model basically features a hatchback body style. Still, a higher ground clearance makes this car a crossover. Finally, there is a coupe-like roof-line, which sacrifices the practicality but provides a far better visual appeal.
Considering its relatively recent launch, we don’t expect bigger changes for the next year. The 2019 QX30 will continue with a familiar styling and with the same engines and complete mechanics. Expect to see the new model late in the year.
2019 Infiniti QX30 redesign
When it comes to styling, we don’t expect to see changes for the next year. The original model came two years ago, so we could say that it is still early for some changes on the exterior design. The 2019 Infiniti QX30 will continue in the same way, featuring the same design which is considered to be one of the most attractive in the class.
This crossover combines various kinds of design approaches, so we can notice a hatchback-like shape, mixed up with a beautiful coupe roofline, which makes the model look even more attractive. At the front, you can notice the Infiniti’s current design language, characterized by sleek lines, unlike most of the competitors that are pretty sharp-lined.
On the inside, 2019 Infiniti QX30 will be sleek as well. Curvy lines with plenty of hi-quality materials make an excellent combination and this crossover has a real upscale interior.
