Car and Driver posted a review for the 2017 Infiniti QX30 Sport and they're left hoping that a Red Sport model or something in that regards comes out. They do say it is a good bit snappier than the base though, with the Sport model cutting the 0-60 time by approximately half a second which is huge. They did like it overall, just felt like it could use more and handle it.
2017 Infiniti QX30 Sport Test ? Review ? Car and Driver
For one thing, it’s a quicker animal. Compared with the AWD model, the QX30 Sport’s acceleration from rest to 60 mph dropped by nearly half a second, from 6.6 to 6.2 seconds, with 100 mph arriving 1.3 seconds sooner, at 16.8 seconds versus 18.1. The 5-to-60-mph rolling start time fell from 7.2 to 7.0 seconds while the 30-to-50-mph and 50-to-70-mph passing times are down by half a second each, to 2.9 and 4.2 seconds. It handles and stops better, too, clinging to the skidpad with an impressive 0.90 g of lateral grip, up from the AWD model’s ho-hum 0.83 g. Braking from 70 mph took 157 feet, six fewer than its more rugged counterpart.
