Owner of a Q30S 2.2D AWD and happy to have joined the forum. Car is amazing and speedy :)
I'm based in Luxembourg and don't worry I'm not the only owner in the Country. There are few other Q30 around. :D

Welcome to the forum.

Lucky for you guys the diesel is optional, we on the other hand can only hope!
How many miles have you put on it so far and do you find power to be enough in the city and on highways?

Hi Folks

I've got the Malbec Black and the Black City pack. Wheels have some purple accents.
So far I've put on +/- 6,000kms (car got delivered in March).
Driving in the city with the Economy setup is perfect. Low consumption (6,7/100km) and engine not loud at all. I was impressed by the low consumption on the highway.
Power is enough for its weight and size. On limitless highway it is good fun.

How are you finding visibility to be when parking it the city? City situations can be the most challenging for vehicles like this in my experience unless you have a lot of time behind the wheel.

if we got the car, the pics will come of our Infiniti Q30S (city black) 2.2D DCT AWD. I hope of the low consumption. We have also a Volvo V40 (2016) in standard equipment but with the 2.0 D with 120 HP, manual gearbox. This car drinks not much, 4.5 L / 100 km on the highway and 5,3 around all day. The Skoda Octavia (4x4) 2.0 D 150Hp drinks around 6.4 liter / 100Km. Maybe the Q30 is coming on this or maybe lower, but with an automatic gearbox the consum will be a little higher , i like to try. Because when i drive i look in front what is happening, but my wife is driving normal and using more Diesel. We will see

Parking is not an issue. I have the 360 camera and I have not had difficulties so far. Parking assistant is also a helpful optional.
However, I admit that visibility is not good and the 360 camera optional should be a "must" for this car in my opinion.

Hi Mathieu
Overall consumption will be similar to your Skoda. On the highway you can easily reach the 4.5l/100km if you drive slowly. I drove through Switzerland during Easter and I've gone below 4.5l/100km.

The biggest take away to drive efficiently is to just gradually easy into the RPM range till you got to the speed required. Most people are surprised by how little throttle they actually need to apply to stay within the flow of traffic.
