Infiniti is readying its entry-level compact car for its official debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, and released this new image last night on its U.K. Twitter account.

The image doesn’t really show us anything new, as we’ve already been exposed to the sleek hatchback in official photos before. The car looks quite similar to the not-for-North-America Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which is natural, since it shares quite a few parts with the German car.

The platform is borrowed from the Mercedes, and likely the engine will be too, as the two automakers have been collaborating on products for a while now. Under the hood will likely be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s turbocharged to make 211 hp.

The Q30 will also share most of its components with the upcoming QX30, which is a hiked up version of the Q30 with a higher ride height. Infiniti is hoping that the Q30 and QX30 will give the brand a major boost in Europe, which is the main market for the two new cars. We’ll report more about the production Q30 when it debuts in Frankfurt.
