The last time the Q30 was spotted by spy photographers, it was sporting heavy camouflage, concealing much of its body and features. This time around, the Japanese automaker has removed the massive black coverings as it tests the new compact luxury hatchback in Europe.
Sharing a platform with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the Q30 will also feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sourced from the German automaker.
The Q30 will be built in England while its powerplant will be manufactured in the U.S. Expect the compact hatch to enter production in late 2015 for the European market before heading to the U.S. early next year. Infiniti will eventually expand the lineup with the QX30, a high-riding version of the Q30 appealing to compact crossover shoppers.
