Although a relatively fresh model, it looks like the 2021 Infiniti QX30 will be the last model year of this subcompact crossover. Simply, it hasn’t managed to make any decent sales numbers and it looks like the company doesn’t plan any redesign. Therefore, we count on a familiar design for the next year. Logically, the company won’t bother too much with this model, so we count on the same features as well.
The 2021 Infiniti QX30 will continue to deliver good driving dynamics and great exterior styling. On the other side, you may count on subpar cargo capacity and a little bit tight rear seats. The current model seems decent in terms of standard equipment, so we probably won’t see too many novelties for the next year. Naturally, this lack of changes means we can count on arrival in a typical time, sometime in the last quarter of 2020.
2021 Infiniti QX30 Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2021 Infiniti QX30 shouldn’t feature any particular change for the next year. You may count on a familiar design. This crossover is based on the previous generation of the Mercedes-Benz GLA Class, so you may count on the same mechanics. The QX30 uses the same chassis and engines, which means you will get pretty good handling and overall driving characteristics.
On the other side, the styling comes in a typical Infiniti manner, which is great in this case, considering that it delivers all those great curvy lines. Naturally, we don’t expect to see any particular change for the 2021 Infiniti QX30. A couple of new color options seem possible, but anything more than that would be a real surprise.
The cabin of this small crossover looks really good. If you look at the dashboard design and the use of materials, this model looks really impressive. This is definitely one of the nicest dashboards in the class, especially if you like lots of physical buttons. Speaking of knobs and buttons, ergonomics are pretty amazing. Also, we really like the seats and seating position, which feels more like you’re in a hatchback.
Front seats are really impressive, but we don’t really like the fact that the second row is tight. Although that’s a typical thing for the segment, the QX30 seems a little bit tighter compared to rivals. Another complaint goes to the cargo area, which is smaller compared to most competitors. You may count on about 19.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 34 cubic feet with them folded down.
When it comes to visibility, this crossover is a mixed bag. On one side, there’s no problem with front and side visibility. On the other side, rearward visibility is definitely a weak point.
Novelties in terms of standard equipment are always possible, but we don’t expect too much from the 2021 Infiniti QX30. Things should remain pretty much the same, especially in terms of tech goodies. The current model comes standard with things like a 7-inch touch screen, satellite radio, HD Radio, a six-speaker stereo, two USB ports etc. Additionally, you can get things like a panoramic sunroof, navigation system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless device charging, a 10-speaker Bose stereo etc.
When it comes to safety, the list of standard equipment includes things like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and a rearview camera. Additionally, you can get things like blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera, automatic high beams, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and more.
2021 Infiniti QX30 Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, you may count on two familiar units from Mercedes-Benz. There is a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four engine, which is good for about 210 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It ensures pretty good driving dynamics, while the 7-speed automatic transmission works perfectly in pair with this unit. Also, you may count on a pretty impressive 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, which are some of the highest ratings in the class.
In parts of the world like Europe, you can also get a 2.2-liter turbodiesel. This unit is good for about 170 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It also delivers pretty good driving dynamics, while fuel economy is even better.
2021 Infiniti QX30 Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2021 Infiniti QX30 in a typical time of year, sometime in late 2020. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 30.000 dollars.
