Finally we get a first look at the all-new Q30, just in this one picture. Expect more photos to go live leading up to the days of its debut at Frankfurt 2015!



An image of the oh-so-important entry-level Infiniti Q30 has been released ahead of its official debut later this summer at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Infiniti sent over these photos of the car, where we can clearly see the final design of this Japanese hatchback. But then again, is it really Japanese? The Infiniti Q30 is actually based on the MFA platform that underpins the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, CLA-Class and GLA-Class, giving this car a bit of a German influence. Further showcasing its international flair, this car will be built in Sunderland in the UK.

Regardless of its origins and influence, it’s clear that the new Q30 is a striking car, an important factor for entry-level luxury vehicles.

“Design is a key pillar of the Infiniti brand, and the new Q30 Active Compact perfectly embodies this approach,” said Infiniti president Roland Krueger. “The Q30 Active Compact delivers the distinctive design, the driving dynamics and the individuality that our customers expect of an Infiniti vehicle. With our first ever entry in the compact car segment, we continue the product offensive and provide additional options for our discerning customers.”

Under the hood of the Q30 you’ll likely find a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and seven-speed dual clutch transmission, again thanks to some help from Mercedes. Front wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive will likely be an optional extra. Although this picture of the Q30 depict a fairly tall hatchback, Infiniti will also debut a slightly higher-riding model called the QX30 at around the same time.

Expect the Q30 and QX30 to hit US dealerships in 2016, while the official debut of the car will occur on the opening day of the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, so be sure to circle September 15 on your calendar.

It looks no different from what we saw with the concept, except perhaps that it isn't in that rose gold color any more. There might be some more changes at the abck of the vehicle though.

Color might have something to do with it but overall it looks close enough to what we originally seen and even in spy shots which gave a very good look at what we now see here.

I also saw this spy shot that gives us a look at the back of the Q30 as well. Now we really have a full look at the Q30.

I think that it looks quite good, and I even like the color that they have on it. It is extremely similar to the concept, which should make most people happy. I like where Infiniti is taking their lineup as it slowly updates models. The Q50 looks so dated compared to the rest of what is going on with their new models though.

I might be wrong but something about that photo looks off to me, almost as if it was photoshopped into that background.

I don't think so. You can see the reflection of the wheels on the wet pavement. Not the best resolution but I don't see it being photoshopped.

I would expect it to be there. We should know any time now.

I am wondering if the interior of the Q30 will be basically the same as the Q60.
