The 2017 Infiniti QX30 is getting ready to make its debut at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show, but our spy photographers have caught the compact crossover in production ready-form.

Having made its debut in concept form earlier this year at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the compact crossover will bow in Los Angeles next week. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait that long to see what the production model will look like, as spy photographers have caught it testing undisguised. Essentially a high-riding version of the new Q30 hatchback, the QX30 will be built on the Mercedes-Benz MFA platform. In other words, the QX30 is essentially Infiniti’s version of Mercedes-Benz’s GLA-Class.

Expect more details on what will power the Infiniti QX30 when it is officially unveiled next week. It will likely have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine for its entry-level model, although Infiniti has hinted at a full range of turbocharged powertrains including diesel variants.
