2022 BMW X1 vs. 2022 Infiniti QX 30


It’s difficult to pick between the 2022 BMW X1 and the 2022 Infiniti QX 30. They are compact SUVs that offer a lot of space, performance, and luxury, so it’s not surprising that they are among the most popular choices in their segment. However, there are still some differences between these two models that will help you decide which one is better for your driving lifestyle.

In this article, we’ll be comparing their engines, ride comfort, and fuel efficiency, among other things, so read on if you’re interested in buying an X1 or QX 30!

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The 2022 BMW X1 is an SUV, so it’s not exactly a compact car. This means it has a higher center of gravity, which can make the ride feel unstable and bumpy at times. The 2022 Infiniti QX 30 is a compact car, which means its low-slung frame gives you more confidence that it won’t roll over in difficult conditions (such as snow).

If you are looking for an SUV that looks elegant and stylish, the X1 will be your best bet. With its sleek body lines, it gives off that classy look.

  • Interior Design

BMW’s X1 is small and compact, so it has a limited amount of space inside. The front seats are comfortable and have good support, but they don’t slide forward or backward very far. The seats in the back seat aren’t as well-designed and can feel cramped on a long road trip. Overall, though, the interior design of this vehicle is quite stylish and modern-looking, with leather upholstery that makes it look upscale even without additional features like heated seats or navigation systems.

Infiniti’s QX 30 has plenty of room inside its cabin, thanks to its large windows and tall roofline (compared to other vehicles in its class). That said, some reviewers found it difficult to get into one because there wasn’t much headroom for taller passengers who were stepping into the vehicle from an angle rather than directly underneath one of its doors. This can be frustrating if you’re trying not only to get into your car but also to drive at night when there isn’t much light around you—you may need someone else nearby with them standing outside who can guide them through safely.

Technology & Safety

The 2022 BMW X1 has a better display than the 2022 Infiniti QX 30. It has a touchscreen, whereas the latter does not. The dashboard of this vehicle comes with two color LCDs for displaying information about it and its occupants, as well as other functions such as entertainment, climate control, and navigation system.

On the downside, this car does not have a rearview camera or parking sensors like its competition does; However, it does feature a blind spot monitoring system to help to reverse maneuvers by beeping when you get too close to an object (like another vehicle) in your blind spot area. It also has a lane-keeping assistant system which is great because it will keep your vehicle within its lane markings even if there are no lines on the road! So now you can drive safely even when painted borders define no clear lanes!

The 2022 Infiniti QX 30 comes with a standard rearview camera and parking sensors, which makes parallel parking easier for drivers without having to rely on mirrors alone during tight turns or backing up into narrow spaces like between cars parked side-by-side.


Now that you know the basics of these two vehicles let’s dive deeper into their engine performance specs. The 2022 BMW X1 has a 2.0L Inline-4 engine with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the 2022 Infiniti QX 30 has a 2.0L Turbocharged Inline-4 engine with 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque in rear-wheel drive models; in all-wheel drive models, this engine produces 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque when paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission or 210 horsepower and 260 pound-feet when paired with a 7DCT dual-clutch transmissions (either type).

The Bottom Line

The new Infiniti QX30 is a wonderful vehicle that would be pretty attractive to most buyers. However, the 2022 BMW X1 has a few key advantages over its competition, including a lower starting price and better performance scores from Consumer Reports. That’s why we think that if you’re in the market for a new SUV in 2022, you should go with the 2022 BMW X1 over its competition.
