QX30 Concept designed to look good above all else
After showing a teaser image of the new crossover last week, Infiniti has finally revealed the QX30 Concept at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Billed by the automaker as their precursor to the global premium compact crossover segment, the all-new QX30 features the sleek silhouette of a coupe that is combined with a power of an AWD utility vehicle.
Designed to put style above all else, the front end of the QX30 features Infiniti's distinct grill design that is paired with a satin chrome bumper and sharp-looking headlights.
Defined character lines, 21-inch wheels and a low roofline dominate the side profile of the crossover while the rear gets angular taillights and uniquely-shaped tailpipes.
The interior can seat 4 and is fitted with two-tone leather seats with blue-contrast stitching, a center-dash mounted display, metallic accents and a flat-bottom steering wheel.
Infiniti did not specify the exact powertrain but they did state that the QX30 will preview an upcoming production crossover that will be available with a selection of gasoline-powered and diesel-driven engines mated to an AWD system.
“QX30 Concept foreshadows an entry in the premium compact segment that provides a stylish alternative to the existing offer in this segment. The vehicle embodies our conviction to give customers the freedom to go wherever they want, whenever they want – in a style that turns heads and makes a statement, in a way that expresses their individualized character,” said Roland Krueger, Infiniti President and CEO.
The production model expects to against the Audi Q3, BMW X3, Lexus NX, and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
