Nothing has changed much from the sketch Infiniti teased us last week of the Q30 and still looking very much like the Etherea concept car that has made up the base of our Q30 speculations. I expect the hidden door handles to be replaced by traditional handles once Q30 reaches production as well as getting smaller rims.

Infiniti has still not released any specifics regarding the Q30 but rumors have been circulating that Infiniti will borrow power plants from the Mercedes GLA just as the platform has been borrowed.

It is coming in to shape for production. Too bad the concept look is gone I knew it would eventually happen where the back would go through a change. The suicide doors are probably gone as well.

This is still really a concept though. There are no door handles.. Still haven't seen the interior or the rear of the car.

Thats not entirely true




The Q30s front isnt as round, its adopted more of a Q50 snout, but it has kept the same basic flowing shape, especially from the profile. The biggest difference i notice is how the concept Q30 has now been given a traditional CUV hatch unlike the small deck the Etherea had..

And the mirrors

the major differences that I see in the concept and more realistic model q30 is the bubbleback glass is gone. the headlights are different sharing the same ones we see on the q50 and the side contour lines follow through to the rear quarter panel.

I like how it turned out though. I love how it looks from the side.

It lost the FX style grill in favor of the newer Q50 style grill.
I think that has to do more with adopting the new design language. The FX/QX70 grill is from the last design cycle, I fully expect next gen QX70 to look like a scaled up version of the Q30. I'm not sure what type of design schedule Infiniti has their models on, but i assume it would be relatively easy to give all models a re-fresh to include the Q50 esque snout...

So we have a Q30, do you think we'll get a QX30?

I am liking the new look, seeing how realistic the Q30 has come to the production stages makes me think how much more change there would be and what else will they be working on, is the interior done?

never noticed it before but i love how the side turn signals look on the side mirrors, it's not a design you will see anywhere else.

It looks a little bit too much like the Q50 though. Kind of like someone actually chopped the front of a Q50 off and merged it with a FX

No words on the interior yet, aside from what we saw with the Etherea concept. We probably wont get a look at the inside until the Q30 shows up to Frankfurt, but im expecting to get something very Q50, maybe fewer standard features but we'll see.

For reference this is what im imagining:

It shouldn't be too far off of the other infiniti interiors. for all the new up to date shapes and design just take a quick peak at the Q50's interior.

One thing to look out for is info from Mercedes. It's on a Mercedes platform and apparently they will be building the Q30. Might be some hints from them
