A beautiful mix of a coupe, hatchback and crossover, the QX30 impressed with its distinctive design.
While it’s not only about the looks, the QX30 nicely blended the versatility of an SUV with an increased cargo capacity, as well as impressive handling that was more specific to a hatchback, even with the taller ride height.
A luxurious compact would better define the QX30 that was available in four trim levels: base, Luxury, Premium and Sport.
The base trim level was really well equipped with great safety and comfort features, thus the buyers would have needed to look for the upper trim levels if they were interested in leather upholstery, heated front seats, a rear seat armrest and driver memory settings (coming with the Luxury trim level).
The Premium trim level offered roof rails, LED foglights and an upgraded 10-speaker Bose sound system.
Moving forward to the Sport trim level, the QX30 came with unique features such as a tweaked suspension and implicitly a lower stance, 19-inch alloys, front and rear parking sensors, specific black side mirrors, as well as rear lowers fascias, a black grille, front sport seats, an automated parking system and a premium Bose audio system.
While the Sport trim level was only available with a front-wheel-drive system, while the other trim levels could have been both four-wheel-drive or front-wheel-drive.
The 2017 model was powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that generated 208 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque, mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
