Crossover SUVs are among the most popular vehicles on the market. A lot of drivers will love the new 2018 INFINITI QX30. Not only does the QX30 have a sporty appearance that turns heads, but it also delivers an engaging performance on the road. Luxurious features make the QX30 even more rewarding. It currently goes head-to-head against the 2018 BMW X1. Let’s see which one of these compact crossovers wins this head-to-head comparison.
If you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, the 2018 INFINITI QX30 is destined to grab your attention. Its sculpted bodywork will cause everyone to take notice. Signature styling cues, such as a bold double-arch grille, further separate the QX30 from the competition. Some of the stunning paint colors include Liquid Copper, Magnetic Red, and Chestnut Bronze. If you desire an especially sleek look, check out the QX30 Sport. A lowered ride height gives it an especially powerful stance. The QX30 Sport also flaunts some exclusive styling treatments, including a stunning set of 19-inch Gun Metallic wheels and dark chrome exhaust finishers. While the BMW X1 is attractive, it isn’t as seductive as the new INFINITI QX30.
You’ll certainly appreciate the QX30’s everyday comfort. Its "Zero Gravity" seats are engineered to keep your spine in the ideal anatomical position. On the other hand, Car and Driver takes points away from the BMW X1 for its uncomfortable standard seats. The value-packed INFINITI QX30 is also a true bang for the buck. Even the base trim comes loaded with a lot of equipment. Although the BMW X1 is well equipped, it’s missing some of the QX30’s standard features. Satellite radio and keyless ignition are extra on the more expensive BMW X1. You can also take advantage of the QX30’s dual-screen InTouch infotainment system, which is more user-friendly than the X1’s single screen.
When driving the new INFINITI QX30, you’ll enjoy an extra peace of mind. It provides 60,000 miles of basic warranty coverage, which surpasses the BMW X1’s 50,000-mile basic warranty. The QX30’s 70,000-mile powertrain warranty gives it yet another advantage. By comparison, BMW’s powertrain warranty runs out after 50,000 miles. This is an especially important factor for the drivers who plan to do a lot of traveling.
