Infiniti just released the first unobstructed image of its QX30 Concept ahead of its auto show debut in Geneva next month.
The concept rides on 21-inch wheels with higher profile tires than the Q30 concept that debuted at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The two concepts preview future products for Infiniti that will use Daimler’s modular front-wheel drive architecture (MFA).
The QX30 Concept previews what a sub-compact crossover from Infiniti might look like. In production form, both it and the Q30 will be based on the same MFA platform.
Mechanical details are still light, but the company said today that the QX30 Concept is almost 1.2 inches taller than the Q30 Concept. Apart from that, it also wears tougher looking body cladding. According to Infiniti Executive Design Director Alfonso Albaisa, the concept’s design isn’t meant to be particularly decorative so that “customers can drive in or out of the city without worrying about nicks to the chromework.”
