To most consumers it was not known that the partnership of Infinti and Mercedes has begun successfully and are starting to bloom. The new Infiniti Q30 is the offspring of the two. The Q30 will be using a platform from the Mercedes family known as the MFZ platform. The MFA is another upcoming addition to the family but may be just based in Europe.

So what is the point of the Q30 you might ask. It is a unique breed which can compete in two segments. The entry level luxury sedan and with a flick of a button voila it can now play with in the Crossover segment with it's three way adjustable ride height system. I would say this is a first.
If you have a concern for the power, the rumor is the Q30 will sport a 245hp supercharged hybrid four cylinder engine with a CVT transmission.
It is strange at first thought but don't forget about the Renault and Mercedes Alliance working with Infiniti. Is it me or is it awkward how Mercedes will be competing in the exact same category but both will be sharing the same platform.
