Car buyers often find it difficult to choose either of the 2018 Infiniti QX30 or the 2018 Volvo V40 Cross Country, given their excellent set of attributes on offer. At the end of the day you have to make a choice, and this comparison will help you in doing that.

Design & Style

A posh exterior is what you should expect from luxury brands like Infiniti and Volvo, and very rarely do they disappoint us. However, it doesn't reflect the inside of a vehicle. Speaking of which, the 2018 QX30 is a small SUV that can hold up to 4 people. The front and rear seats are quite comfortable, but there's inadequate legroom to stretch out. The selling point of this subcompact SUV is the premium selection of materials and the strong build quality.

On the other hand, the Volvo V40 Cross Country gives you a smooth ride in a cabin that exudes luxury and opulence the moment you jump inside. Alloy wheels have been added to the upgraded model to enhance sporty look. It's a big sigh of relief that the seats are quite spacious and comfortable, compared to other rivals, while the leather upholstery add up to the cabin's design.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 QX30 comes standard with an infotainment system featuring a 7-inch touch screen, satellite radio, HD Radio, and two USB ports. It takes some time to master the controls and buttons, as there are plenty of them. Overall, the system is quite easy to use, although graphics feel a bit downgraded. In terms of safety, you only have a rearview camera included in the model.

The Volvo V40 Cross Country combines functionality with a design when it comes to technology features. The infotainment system is quite impeccable, along with the navigation system and premium audio speakers. Active safety features include forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.


The 2018 QX30 is a lively SUV with a turbo 4-cylinder engine that provides sufficient power to zip around the town. However, it is not a favorite choice for those in quest of a fuel-efficient option. This is where a 2018 Volvo V40 Cross Country is a clear winner, with its 2-liter 4-cylinder engine delivering an output of 152 HP and 180 lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

The above comparison is quite evident of the fact that the 2018 Volvo V40 Cross Country is not just a masterpiece from the outside, but also delivers on fuel economy, handling ability and technology. It has plentiful amenities to give you a smooth ride and is certainly rated higher than Infiniti QX30.
