Comments: Frankfurt 2015: Infiniti Q30 Joins the Growing Group of Entry-Level Luxury Models

Recommended Posts

A new entrant is coming into the entry-level luxury class. At an event on the eve of the Frankfurt Motor Show, Infiniti revealed the 2017 Q30 hatchback.

 

The production model isn't much different from the concept at the shown at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show with a front end seen on a number of Infiniti sedans, and bold sculpting along the side. The interior is focused on the driver with a simple layout for the center stack and sport seats.

 

The Q30 comes from the partnership of Diamler and Nissan. That means the Q30 has some bits of Mercedes-Benz's compact luxury car - the A-Class. It begins with Mercedes' 2.0L turbo-four with 208 horsepower for the U.S. Other countries will get a selection of gas and diesel engines producing 108 to 168 horsepower. Front-wheel drive will come standard, while all-wheel drive will come as an option. It isn't known at this time whether or not the U.S. models will get this option. A six-speed manual and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic will be available.

 

Also coming from Mercedes is the front McPherson struts and rear multi-link suspension arrangement from A-Class. Infiniti has made some slight changes with their own settings for the shocks. A set of eighteen or nineteen-inch wheels will be available.

 

We'll have more information on the Q30 before it launches in the U.S. sometime in the second quarter of next year.
