do you know what the QX30 will be like and if it will share a platform with a Mercedes?
or did they stop the Infiniti and Mercedes relation at the Q50 and Q30 (i think?) ?

I am pretty sure it will share a platform with Mercedes. Infiniti is going to build quite a few cars using that platform (4?) I am anticipating that the QX30 and the Q30 will be similar in size, with the QX30 sitting a bit higher and looking more like a CUV, whereas the Q30 will sit lower and look more like a hatchback/car.

here we go again....

The QX30 will share architecture with the Q30. So I've come to the conclusion that the Q30 is going to be A class sized and that the QX30 is going to be GLA sized...

A Class


GLA



I believe Q30 and QX30 are going to share a similar relationship, similar dimensions, just one is hatchy one is CUV-ey. All 4 will be the same car underneath and under hood.

NOT IF QX50 GROWS!!!!!

GLK IS GROWING FOR GLA

QX50 WILL GROW TO MAKE ROOM FOR Q30/QX30

Yup, this should clear up any confusion.
It's quite simple actually, and anyone thinking Infiniti/Nissan is stupid, just look at what they have created in the past, and are currently!

The QX30 and Q30 seem to compete within the same range of buyers.

Even if they grow the QX50 it still competes with the same range of buyers.

The pricing will all overlap.

3 CUVs? Many would say the QX70 is a CUV as well.

yes well GLA and CLA both compete at the same price point, but they serve different needs and wants.

most makers stagger their pricing so that models do in fact overlap, its a form of upselling. Imagine you can get yourself into a Q30 for ~$40K loaded, yet you can also get yourself into a scarcely optioned QX50 at that price. For a few thousand more you can have everything you want in the larger car. As the models get more expensive the maker makes a bigger margin. When you average out the payments in a lease or finance scenario the increase of a few thousand from Q30 to QX50 works out to peanuts per month.

Again its all about needs and wants. Just because you can get yourself into a QX50 at the price point you want doesnt mean it will serve your needs.

Same with Q30, at its expected $30k MSRP you could also get yourself into a 370Z, but does the 370 meet your needs?
