Los Angeles 2015: All-new 2017 Infiniti QX30 is worth watching

By ,

Following the QX30 Concept that made its debut in Geneva back in March, Infiniti yesterday unveiled the production version of its all-new compact luxury crossover during simultaneous launches in Los Angeles and Guangzhou, China. 

Once again, the company said it targets a new generation of premium buyers who appreciate category-defying design inside and out, particularly from Generations X and Y. 

The 2017 Infiniti QX30, which is set to arrive in showrooms next summer, will offer a single powertrain option in North America – a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 208 horsepower through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (with paddle shifters) and all-wheel drive system. In other markets, a 1.6L unit will also be available.

The luxurious interior of the QX30 features high-quality black cloth seats or, optionally, black or beige Nappa leather seats. Look for an advanced navigation system, a panoramic sunroof, and numerous driver assist technologies, as well.

Further details about equipment and pricing will be announced closer to the QX30’s on-sale date.
