Infiniti Q30 2016 hatchback revealed, shares Mercedes-Benz platform

2016 Infiniti Q30

This is the Infiniti Q30, Nissan’s first entry in the premium compact hatchback category, revealed in production form about two years after the public premiere of the Q30 Active Compact Concept. Only a single image has been released so far.

Sharing a front-wheel-drive platform with the awkwardly-proportioned Mercedes-Benz A-Class, it probably shares engines with its joint-venture German cousin as well, likely including the 211 hp 2.0-litre turbo 4-cylinder that currently does duty in the A-Class, the C-Class and the Infiniti Q50. The platform will also spawn a slightly-lifted crossover version called the QX30, in the same vein as the GLA-Class.

Built in England rather than Japan, the 2016 Infiniti Q30 is expected to hit showrooms by the first quarter of 2016 in European markets, with a potential later debut for the GCC if it gets greenlit for our region.

What do you think?



  1. fake luxury car

  2. Why is it bad? I find it better than a lexus ct200. And it most certainly would be a lot cheaper.

  3. Seriously guys, why is it lame? CarandDriver gives 4.5 rating and even claims it to be a better Benz. A quote from their reivew I would like to mention here.
    “As with most not-quite-cars/not-quite-trucks, serious drivers may want something more focused. For everyone else, the Q30’s coy charade as neither a Benz nor a crossover works to give Infiniti showrooms something different, something with a little, um, romance.”

    That’s exactly what I feel too.
