Serving Novi, MI

With numerous compact crossover SUVs to explore and to choose from, you understandably want to be discerning as you search for the right vehicle that meets your high expectations. The 2019 INFINITI QX30 is one of the newer luxury models on the market, and it has the stunning style and features that may place it squarely at the top of your list. However, you may wonder how it compares to the 2019 Volvo XC40. The XC40 is an all-new model, so you may not be familiar with all that it offers. A close comparison may help you to pick out the right vehicle from these options.


The 2019 INFINITI QX30 is offered in four trims. These trims are all powered by a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbo engine with idle start-stop technology. They also come with front-wheel or all-wheel drive and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. With these equipment combinations, you can expect to enjoy 208 horsepower across every mile.

In comparison, the 2019 Volvo XC40 is offered in four trim levels with two powertrain options. Most trims are equipped with an inline-4 turbocharged engine that provides up to 187 horsepower, and they are only offered with front-wheel drive. You will need to upgrade to the top XC40 trim to have access to more than 200 horsepower and all-wheel drive.


While the QX30 and the XC40 are both compact luxury crossover SUVs, they deliver appeal in unique ways. The QX30 is a vision of graceful elegance with long, flowing lines that span fluidly from front to rear. The hood’s unique design beautifully creates the image of power without impacting its polished perfection. The side windows have a sharp angle that adds to the QX30’s sense of forward momentum. The INFINITI model’s appearance is further boosted by a tailgate spoiler, LED headlights, numerous wheel options, and other elements. The 2019 Volvo XC40, on the other hand, has a boxier design overall. This is characterized by straight lines from front to rear, except for a geometric intrusion in the side panels. The roof and hood are relatively horizontal, and the side windows and taillights add to the geometric feel of the XC40.


The base trim of the QX30 is notably more affordable than the base trim for the XC40, but the included equipment does not represent the substantial price difference. The QX30 is outfitted with equipment like an intelligent key, a 7-inch display screen with touch functionality, a rearview monitor, assistive safety technologies, and many other high-end features in the base trim, and these features become increasingly sophisticated with each trim progression. The base trim for the XC40 has a touch display screen, a standard audio system, an auto-dimming rearview monitor, a trip computer, USB ports, and other items.
