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.

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...

The UK specification 'City Black' SE has purple stitching as standard. The 'Sport' & 'Premium' specs have not yet been published. Q30 specs can be viewed on the Infiniti.co.uk web site. I am expecting to see the car & have a test drive next month. Orders are being taken for delivery from January onwards ........can't wait to see it in the metal.

Looking at the GLA in comparison, I think that infiniti has done a better job with their interior. I like the way the screen is done more in the Infiniti. The shifter looks better than that storage compartment, and I've never been a fan of the vent design that Mercedes has.

Was hoping to see the white seat trim in the configurator but it doesn't seem to be an option at all.

Probably because the 'Sports' and 'Premium' specification cars are not available until 2016, the 'SE' & 'City Black' being first off the block!. I will be questioning the local salesman on 23rd October when the Q30 officially goes on view at my Trafford Centre shopping mall. I will up date you Indiana on the 'configurator' thread.
