2017 INFINITI QX30 vs. Its Competition

2017 Infiniti QX30

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 is, essentially, a QX30 by another name, but the German name has more cachet.

Fresh off a redesign, the boxier BMW X1 may be a better choice for buyers with frequent back-seat passengers and cargo.

The Audi Q3 is similar to the QX30 in that it is essentially a raised hatchback version of the A3.

The choice of a 2016 Acura RDX may be more logical than emotional, and we find it a value.

The 2016 Volvo XC60 is almost as stylish as the QX30 and comes with the Swedish brand's reputation for safety.

Quick Specs
6.6
Built on Mercedes-Benz roots, the 2017 Infiniti QX30 is an agile and stylish subcompact that toes the line between crossover and hatchback.
7.2
The 2017 Acura RDX is one of the smoothest, most responsive-driving compact crossover SUVsā€”even though it prioritizes practicality.
6.5
The 2017 Audi Q3 isn't the most space-efficient or fuel-efficient in its class, but it gives compact luxury shoppers the ride comfort, easy maneuverability, and flexible cabin they seek.
6.2
Pleasant to drive and built to a price, the 2017 BMW X1 is a mainstream subcompact crossover that is pleasant to drive but lacks the brand's "ultimate driving machine" performance.
6.2
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is a small, luxury compact 'ute that prioritizes "looks" over "feels," or in other words, it's probably perfect for a lot of shoppers.
7.0
The 2017 Volvo XC60 is a near-luxury contender at near-luxury prices. Its safety might be its biggest strong suit, which it rightly deserves.
