The production version of the Infiniti QX30 has been caught on camera while undergoing tests near the city of Stuttgart in Germany.

Seen here is a test prototype of the compact crossover featuring LED taillights and twin exhaust pipes. Scheduled to go into production soon, the model will be based on the Mercedes-Benz’s MFA platform and will be built at Nissan's factory in Sunderland, UK.

The machine will share many of its details with the Mercedes GLA including a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 211 bhp (157 kW) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque.

The production model was previewed by a concept at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. In June last year Infiniti's president Johan de Nysschen confirmed the QX30 entry-level has been green-lighted.
