From the looks of the Infiniti Q30's rear section it could be easily be mistaken as a crossover but from the side it looks as if it was just like any other compact sedan. Why does it give off this impression?

Well first off it is the shape of the Q30 that makes it a hybrid of its own kind. to be fair I would say its a hatchback.

Not exactly sure at the moment but i keep reading about the adjustable ride height system that make it change. Just how high can it go?

Andy Palmer (Infiniti global chief) has said that the Q30 will slot between Audis A3 and Q3. Its supposed to compete in several segments, which makes things interesting because one size fits all has never ever worked. Q30 may end up trying to straddle too many niches and fail..

In that case it might fail in one segment and has another to fall back on. eventually Infiniti will realize it should be just classified as a crossover.

To me the Q30 gives off the vibe of a miniature suv. in my mind i think it is smaller the than the previous EX or might be in the same category. Round and tall would be the best way to describe it.

Seeing this picture makes me realize that at these stages the Q30 is still a concept. I doubt the exterior shape would change much but we never know.

Yeah exactly, there is no rear view mirrors and in replacement there are just cameras on the front window pillars.

it looks a bit too futuristic to even be on a production level at this point, it will definitely lose a number of things but i seriously think the production model will retain most of the shape

I think the shape will stay the same, side rear view mirrors will be added (though i just read an article about using cameras instead of mirrors on cars,)the entire roof will not be glass.

The concept car was supposed to draw on elements of sedans, SUVs, crossovers, and compacts. This largely confused people. I think the car will compete in crossover category.

it's almost like an FX mated with a G37
good way of putting it
infiniti's design language is pretty strong and consistent from vehicle to vehicle, so even someone who was to do a rendering based off of new design languages would be fairly close.

That is the best way to put it in terms of how the Q30 got its looks. The front end from the G37 (lights and grille) and the rear sort of like the FX.

So how many of you in here actually appreciate the looks of the Q30?

I would say i am still 50/50 about it. It will take some time for me to fully digest, lets put it that way.

That's too bad about the all glass roof, I was looking forward to seeing that feature stick but I guess it doesn't make too much sense for safety.

The cameras to replace the rear view mirrors were a given to go. It will be a while till the government lets that one go. I see it coming though.

It's a unique look I'll tell you that much. I can already predict what some people will say about the Q30. That it's an egg shaped vehicle and the ugly duckling in infiniti's line up. so be ready for the negative comments.

The one pie roof was just to impractical for it to make it to production. Not a bad concept idea though. Just think about the repair bill for it if you ever get a stone chip that spreads.

It'll be a while till the Q30 get any real interest for it's looks but probably draw most of the attention either with it's price or technology.
