Infiniti's second compact crossover, the QX30, arrived in September 2016 and followed its almost-identical Q30 cousin to the Australian market.
Offering an increased ride height and four-wheel-drive drivetrain, compared to its low-riding front-wheel-drive stablemate, the QX30 was positioned as a luxury model.
Available in entry-level GT and top-spec Premium variants, the QX30 was powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produced 155kW and 350Nm, and was mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Both variants were only offered with one option, metallic paint, as all other equipment – such as driver safety aids and a Bose 10-speaker sound system – was standard in each model grade.
