Prices sit mainly in the £20,000 to £30,000 bracket and the Q30 offers three basic trim levels; entry-level 'Pure', 'Luxe' and 'Sport'. The 'Pure' variant kicks off at just over £20,000 for a 120PS front wheel drive manual car, with the 1.5 litre diesel an extra £1,000 or so. Standard equipment includes a 7"" touchscreen Bluetooth infotainment system, manual air conditioning, all-round electric windows, auto headlights, leather steering wheel and leather gearshift gaiter. One thing you don't get is alloy wheels: you'll need to option those separately or move up a trim level.
On top of desirable 18"" alloys, 'Luxe' models also get LED front foglights, heated body colour mirrors and additional chrome detailing, not to mention greater levels of tech and comfort inside. 'Sport' models get a 15mm drop in ride height, 19"" alloys, colour-coded sills, dark chrome exhausts and a black front grille with a sportier front bumper. Cars fitted with the 2.2 diesel also gain active noise cancellation to help improve refinement. Go for that engine and one of the swanky trims and you'll top £30,000 without too much difficulty. This is fairly common amongst competitors however. If you're interested in the QX30 version with its raised ride height, wider wheelarches and roofrails, bear in mind that this derivative only comes with plush 'Luxe' or 'Luxe Tech' trim and with 2.2-litre diesel power, automatic transmission and AWD. QX30 pricing starts from around £30,000.
All models receive seven airbags, hill start assist, brake assist, collision warning with active stop and the usual ABS, stability control and traction control.
