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.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..
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.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?
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 shapeSeeing 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.
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.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.
