Infiniti has unveiled to the world the newest member of its premium vehicle family at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show – the Infiniti Q30 compact. When launched, the Q30 is going be Infiniti’s first entry into the luxury compact segment.
Likewise, the Q30 is being marked as vital to the carmaker’s plans for global growth as it is targeted towards a new generation of buyers who are unwilling to be defined by the vehicles they choose. Infiniti’s latest product is available in SE, Premium and Sport versions – each having its own distinct design, dimensions and driving performance.
With three available variants, customers can now further personalize their Infiniti Q30 according to their needs or preferences, whether on the exterior or in the interior. For instance, the Q30 Premium features LED front fog lamps, chrome dual rectangular exhaust finishers, body-colored and heated door and mirrors, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Because the Q30 Premium features an elevated stance, the hip point is higher at 531mm, which means that occupants would have an easier time entering or exiting the car. Infiniti opted for a slim A-pillar design for improved visibility for a confident driving experience.
On the other hand, the Q30 Sport features a slightly distinct face due to the addition of a bespoke bumper and gloss black front grille. It features custom body-colored side sills for an in-motion look, a sporty rear bumper, dark chrome dual rectangular exhaust finishers, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Because the Q30 Sport is slightly lower than the SE and the Premium variants, it allows for more agile ride and handling. Although the Q30 has a coupe-like profile, it features a spacious cabin, which features a boot capacity of 368 liters VDA – one of the best in the premium compact segment.
Albaisa remarked that the Q30 could not be considered as a little version of the larger Infiniti vehicles since it has a posture and shape that exudes freedom.
