And what a baby.. Another Infinity SUV..? Say it is so..!
2017 Infinity QX-30
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the new car parking lot, Mercedes-Benz and Renault Nissan comes crashing together bringing fourth this Unholy mix of French, German and Japanese, thereby rendering all other babies in this luxury SUV's segment insolvent.. Welcome the Infinity QX 30.
Since the turn around of the economy nothing has been selling hotter than small SUVs. Not just in the United States (where it seems we finally caught on) but everywhere in the world, seeing them for their utility, AWD capability, package swallowing ability, and the ability to get into small spaces that your full frame SUV should not even try.. And it doesn't hurt when they got a little luxury to boot.
The Infinity QX 30 will be the next fashion monarch to hit the road while at the same time allowing us to look good while driving it. At the New York auto show seeing it in person and seeing these wonderful curves one has to wonder whether the QX 30 will spend all of its time in bad weather, in the hills camping and fishing, on the golf course, or in Beverly Hills . It really looks the part of a small luxury jack of all trades.. Either way this little babies going to fit right in.
Infinity is being very tight lipped about the specs of the vehicle, however it's going to use its Mercedes platform mates power-train yielding about 208 horsepower in a 2.0 liter Turbo motor and 158lb ft of torque. This guy will come front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive. Also expected to have all of the goodies found in the luxury marks today including cross lane detection adaptive cruise control and semi-autonomous programming.. If it's anything like it's Mercedes stablemate, the GLA, this is going be a fantastic car.
