2019 INFINITI QX30 vs. Its Competition

2019 Infiniti QX30

The 2019 Infiniti QX30 is largely the same vehicle underneath as the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, sharing a platform, powertrain, and even many interior knobs and buttons.

If the badge on the grille is important to you, the GLA-Class comes at a slightly higher cost.

BMW’s X1 offers more interior space but less exciting styling, and its badge also comes at a premium to the Infiniti’s.

The Jaguar E-Pace is arguably the most fun of the group and has a neat all-wheel-drive system on offer but gets very expensive very fast.

Lexus’s all-new UX offers city-friendly size and styling, as well as a segment-exclusive hybrid powertrain.

Finally, the Volvo XC40 is arguably the best of the bunch, offering standout style and features, not to mention a novel subscription ownership program.
