Infiniti’s portfolio of smaller models is blossoming. The QX30 concept is proof of that, as it will likely join the Q30, also still currently a concept, in Infiniti’s new compact family.
At 174.3-inches in length, the concept is roughly the same length as the BMW X1 or Mercedes-Benz GLA. With 7.6-inches of ground clearance and 21″ wheels, it should be able to handle basic off-road duties. Think it as a smaller Porsche Macan or BMW X4, as in designed more like a cross-over coupe.
Interior design elements include a glass roof sunroof, saddle and quilted leather seats with aluminum trim, and LED mood lighting. The QX30 will be available with all the latest connectivity technology using Infiniti’s newest generation InTouch infotainment system.
The QX30 will be a global product that will use both gasoline and diesel engines paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The concept is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is probably the result of the Mercedes marriage. Infiniti also is hinting at a full range of turbocharged powertrains in the future.
Expect to see it in Infiniti dealerships in the next few years although no exact production date has been set for the QX30. Pricing should range in the low-$30k’s U.S.
