I was just think about the cars that the Q30 would be competing against. The back end of the Q30 looks semi-wagonish, it is at least a hatchback. I was just thinking that a big competitor would be the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake. What do you guys think?

Obviously it won't compete in North America since the CLA Shooting Brake isn't coming here, but in Europe???

Seems like the Q30 could be a bit smaller than the CLA Shooting brake.

@trals do you think that the Q30 is going to be more expensive than the CLA SB?

I think that it is going to come down to the pricing of the Q30. It is hard to tell where they are going to try to price it since we haven't seen a production version yet. I wouldn't say that the Q30 is a shooting brake vehicle though. More of a crossover/hatchback. I can see people cross shopping the two though.

I think a good starting point is looking at the MB cars based on MFA. CLA $29,999 and GLA $30,XXX. I think its fair to expect infiniti to undercut MB by a touch, simply because there is no way infiniti can compete with the allure of the MB badge in a straight up price match.

Great way to see it. Infiniti has no choice but to underpin Benz's pricing or meet it. Thankfully if you buy an Infiniti you get more value for your money but an MB is an MB.

yea they should be able to put more technologies into the vehicle than mercedes was able too, its the only way to claw your way up the ladder. It took audi 20 years to be considered a significant option.

If Infiniti makes the Q30 a better vehicle than the CLA then they could charge more. Not much more of course, but I don't think they will have to undercut the CLA. They will match it or price a slight bit higher. From the looks of the Q30 so far, I think that it will be a better looking vehicle than the CLA.

B-Class is boring, but when it comes to Q30 competitors i know the b-series will be one of them. I have a good feeling the Q30 will crush the b-series.
