If you’re looking for a crossover, there are lots to choose from in the red-hot segment. But those looking for a vehicle with a focus on driver engagement should definitely explore the 2018 Infiniti QX30 Sport.
Because even while it undercuts some other luxury crossovers—think the Jaguar E-PACE and Porsche Macan—on price, the engineers at Infiniti wanted to give the crossover the spirited driving dynamics of a hot hatch. And in our opinion? They succeeded. Power comes from a turbocharged I-4 which puts out 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which in front-wheel drive models, allow it to make the jump from zero to 60 mph in a brisk 6.1 seconds.
That said, numbers aren’t everything, and the chassis, brakes, and fantastic steering all make this versatile machine a treat. Whether you’re just tooling around town, hauling home stuff from Costco, or looking to tackle a twisty road, the Infiniti QX30 Sport will handle whatever you can throw at it.
