Default Frankfurt 2015: Infiniti Q30, A Proper Premium Hatchback



Infiniti has finally released the Q30 hatch in production guise just prior to the opening of the Frankfurt Motor Show.

How's this for choice, in Europe at least, Infiniti will offer the Q30 in three trim levels-SE, Sport and Premium- and 5 engine choices, mixed between petrol and diesel.

Starting from the top down, Premium trimmed models will gain visual content over the SE. Notable LED foglights, body-colored and heated door mirrors accentuated by chrome exhuast tips and 18 inch rims.

The Sport model offers a unique front bumper and black tinted front grill to match its dark chrome tips, 19 inch wheels and painted side sills. The Sport also offers a stiffer suspension and will ride ome 15 mm lower then SE and Premium Q30's.

As for motivation, Infinti offers the gamut. A 1.6L gasoline engine offered in 120 or 154 bhp states of tune, a 107 bhp 1.5L diesel and a 2.2L diesel making 168 bhp. Sport and Premium Q30's will be offered with an optional 2.0L 4 cylinder that we've already seen in the Mercedes CLA and GLA.

European shoppers will be offered the choice of a 6 speed manual or a 7 speed dual clutch automatic, unclear if North America will be offered the same choice. Unlikely.

Further price and package information will become available closer to the Q30's January 2016 delivery date.

If its basically the same car as the GLA, I have to say that I like the design of this car better. I think it stands apart from other cars on the road, luxury or otherwise.

I'm liking the choice of 6MT or 7DCT.

Brown is the Premium trim, silver is the Sport.

I'm quite impressed at the interior, the center stack and use of colors was well done, almost helps to create more of a german feel that Japanese, starting to wonder what this will do to GLA sales as this Infiniti is shaping up quite nicely.

I love the purple contrast stitching on what would seem to be the Q30 Sport...

Considering most contrast stitching is red or white, it is cool to see some purple. It matches well with the color palette that they have created for the Q30.

I find that stitching across the center arm rest to be odd, sort of randomly done when you look at the rest of the interior stitiching.
