Infiniti recently announced the line-up of its all-new QX30 premium active crossover for Canada and the United States.
While sharing basic exterior and interior designs, the QX30 line will be offered in three unique versions, each with its own front and rear fascia, wheel design and interior themes:
QX30: The crossover’s highly sculpted exterior, unique stance and asymmetric cabin design exemplify Infiniti’s design-led approach to product development. This version is sold in Europe and other regions outside of the Americas under the Q30 name. In the Americas, this model will be front-wheel drive.
QX30S: With a lower stance, aggressive front and rear fascia, cross-drilled front brake rotors, 19-inch wheels and performance tires, the QX30S is the sports version of Infiniti’s new premium compact line. It was shown at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, and is sold in other markets as the Q30S.
QX30 AWD: With an intelligent all-wheel drive system, slightly higher ride height and off-road inspired front and rear valence panels, the vehicle is able to take on urban, suburban and winding rural roads in all driving conditions. The QX30 AWD debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show as the QX30.
The QX30 line for Canada and the U.S. is powered by a 208-horsepower, 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder mated to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, and is scheduled to go on sale at Infiniti retailers in Canada and the United States in mid-2016.
