While the Infiniti QX30 and the Volvo XC40 compete in the compact luxury SUV segment, they are quite different in size, performance, comfort, and technology features. Despite these differences, you can still find similarities between them, which help make an informed decision about your next vehicle purchase. Here's how to decide between the two cars by 2022 Infiniti QX30 vs. 2022 Volvo XC40 comparison covering all the essential aspects of these vehicles.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

We don't know what to say here, because both cars look great on exteriors. They have larger and more expressive grilles and headlights that give them a rather sporty look, especially considering their small size. Their wheels are a bit larger than those on most crossovers of their size and help give them an air of style that few crossovers can match in their class. With only a few options, either car will appear stylishly designed in any trim package you choose to go with from your local dealer. We'd be hard-pressed to find much fault with how either car looks on its exterior - as if we could ever actually choose one over another at all!

  • Interior Design

Both vehicles have great interior designs, but there are some differences. Infiniti has a 2-zone climate control system with an automatic mode. It also includes an ionizer and ionic air filter to make passengers feel more comfortable at all times inside of the vehicle. On top of that, it is equipped with a 12-way power driver seat and an 8-way power passenger seat for maximum comfort during driving. In both vehicles, the touchscreen display provides a wide range of features to connect your phone or other electronic devices to keep you entertained while driving on long trips or in traffic jams.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to being a truly safe car, it's hard to beat the 2022 Volvo XC40. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it five out of five stars in every one of its test categories: front and side impacts as well as rollover safety. It is also a feature-packed model with standard features like multi-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and road sign recognition. None of these features are available on Infiniti QX30. This means you will have more eyes on your back when you drive around town or are on an open highway trip with your family and friends in the 2022 Volvo XC40.


Depending on which model you choose, there are two different engines that you can get when you purchase a 2022 Volvo XC40. On the one hand, you can get a turbocharged engine with 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque; on the other hand, you can get a naturally aspirated engine with 238 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is optional on both models, but it's standard with certain trim levels of the Infiniti QX30 and is included in all trims of its sibling model-the Infiniti QX50.

The Bottom Line

By now, you probably understand that both of these automobiles are excellent vehicles, but they do have important differences that make one better than another, depending on your needs. While we love both of these cars, we think the 2022 Volvo XC40 is a better choice than the 2022 Infiniti QX30 because it's more fun to drive, has more cargo space, and offers a much longer driving range than its competitor does. If you want to get anywhere in life without spending tons of money on gas, then choose a car like the 2022 Volvo XC40 with over 300 miles range per tank and save big bucks on gas with a high MPG rating (26 city/33 highway).
