Infiniti Q30 concept

Check it out, new entry level hatch from Infiniti based off the Mercedes A Class platform.

What do you guys think will it spawn off into a Nissan in the future?

I don't think it will spawn off into a nissan. They are trying really hard currently to separate nissan and infiniti as infiniti is really trying to become a player in the luxury market. Hard to do when you can get the same vehicle with a nissan badge.

I do like the q30. I wish it was a true hatch though and not this CUV type vehicle. It's too close to the EX/qx50. I'm actually surprised this isn't being called a qX with it's high ground clearance. If you don't know infiniti naming yet all cars are Q and all SUVish vehicles are QX.

Looks way too big for how small it is on the inside. The Q30 used to be fairly small (it was the same thing as a 96-99 maxima) and now this thing is just going in all the wrong directions. The front of it is still pretty sexy but that's all I'm seeing that I enjoy.

You are confusing the new, never released q30 with the old I30. Two totally different vehicles. The q30 isn't a new I30. The i30 was a midsize sedan. This new q30 is a compact crossover/hatch.



People are calling the q30 the next g20. Though that was a compact sedan I think they are referring to more the fact that it's the entry level luxury vehicle from infiniti and not the body style. Rumor has it that this q30 will spin off a compact sedan in the future though. i <3 G20's

The rumors of Q30 spinning off into a range of vehicles would not surprise me as Audi is going to be doing the same with the A3 as a sedan, cabrio, and coupe. Also Mercedes with the CLA and A-Class.

I think this entry level luxury market is going to be huge in the coming years.

Infiniti has openly admitted they are aiming squarely at audi. They want to recreate and surpass what audi has done in the past 20 years. Not sure if anyone remembers old audi but they were not really a luxury maker. They did some racing stuff and in the 80's were part of a huge unintended acceleration scandal.

Infiniti even went as far as to hire Johan De Nysschen, former president of U.S. operations.

BTW the q30 will be sharing parts with the Mercedes A-class.

It seems that Mercedes and Nissan have some agreements going, rumors. I would love to have an Infiniti with a Mercedes built motor!

Last rumor I read is this q30 and the q50 will be using a mercedes built 2.0 turbo engine. I am kind of sad to see the company that once created the sr20det using engines from someone else but these are the times.

Love that car. Wish that was more the way infiniti went. More hatchback, less crossover. Be nice if the AMG tuned engine finds it's way into one of the infiniti's.
