Not wanting to be left out of the subcompact crossover party, Infiniti just debuted the QX30 concept at the Geneva Motor Show.
A model destined for production, the QX30 concept will join the Q30 – also still currently a concept – compact car as part of a new family of smaller Infiniti models.
Using a seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, the QX30 will be a global product that uses both gasoline and diesel engines. Powering the concept is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that Infiniti says hints at a full range of future turbocharged powertrains.
Designed to be a crossover-coupe, think it as a smaller take on the Porsche Macan or BMW X4. At 174.3-inches in length, this concept is roughly the same size as the Mercedes-Benz GLA and BMW X1. With 7.6-inches of ground clearance, it should be able to handle mild off-road duties.
Other design elements include 21-inch wheels and Connolly saddle leather covered seats with contrast blue stitching. Using the latest generation of Infiniti’s InTouch infotainment system, the QX30 will be available with all the latest connectivity technology.
No exact production date has been set for the QX30 but expect to see it in Infiniti dealerships in the next few years.
