INFINITI expands engine line-up for QX30
- 2.0t DCT AWD available for QX30 Premium grade
- Model Year upgrades enhance Q30 and QX30
Rolle – Following the successful launch of its compact models, INFINITI expands the engine line-up of the QX30 premium active crossover and offers new features for Q30 and QX30. As such, starting from model year 2017, customers of the QX30 Premium grade version can opt for a 2.0t petrol engine in addition to the existing 2.2d diesel.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged DIG (direct injection gasoline) engine produces 350Nm torque and delivers 208hp. It enables an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 230 km/h. This sensation of endless power delivery, at any engine speed, provides a consistent surge or swell in performance, giving drivers the confidence to safely complete an overtaking manoeuvre or join a motorway at higher speeds. The 2.0t engine has already been available on Q30, Q50 and Q60. In addition, the intelligent all-wheel drive system as well as the dual-clutch transmission system will remain standard on all versions of QX30.
From now on, the Premium Tech grades of Q30 and QX30 will also be equipped with a push-button start system as standard which also provides for keyless entry.
The City Black versions of the Q30 Premium and Sport grades, which account for nearly a quarter of Q30 sales, will now be available in three additional metallic colors: Malbec Black, Moonlight White and Blade Silver.
Starting prices for QX30 2.0t DCT AWD per markets are now available.
