The QX30 has a higher ride height than the Q30 on which it’s based, but unfortunately, that does little to improve ride comfort. While calling it uncomfortable would be a touch harsh, there are too many types of road surface where the suspension simply doesn’t keep life smooth enough, meaning it’s nowhere near as cosseting as it should be. Critically, there are numerous rivals that’ll keep you more comfortable. That wouldn’t be so bad if the Infiniti could out-handle the competition, but sadly, it can’t. The body control is fairly decent once the car settles into a bend, but there’s an initial period of sloppiness before that, which makes the turn-in feel rather laboured. The steering, meanwhile, is reasonably quick, but you don’t get a great deal of feedback through the wheel. Bends are dispatched with plenty of grip, and the standard four-wheel drive also means plenty of traction on the Tarmac, but don’t expect the QX30 to be able to venture too far off the beaten track.
