2017 Infiniti QX30 – Fuel Economy Review

In this episode, we test drive the all new 2017 Infiniti QX30. Infiniti rejuvenates its crossover line-up with its smallest offering, blending the brand’s striking design language with compact yet spacious interiors. Our tester was equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine capable of generating 208 horsepower (@5,500rpm) and 258 lb-ft of torque.

With its compact dimensions and small yet powerful engine, the QX30 achieved excellent fuel economy numbers in our test. Our test vehicle yielded 660km on a tank of gas and gave us an average fuel economy of 7.7L/100km. With these numbers, the QX30 might be one of the most fuel-efficient gasoline-powered luxury vehicles on the road today. The fact that it is an all-wheel drive equipped crossover makes it all the more impressive.
