Infiniti QX30 Concept
Introduced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the 2015 Infiniti QX30 Concept is a crossover that Infiniti hopes will bridge the gap between the different models in their lineup. As seen in other crossover models, the QX30 borrows many design cues and innovations from the hatchback that it was based upon. Essentially, the QX30 can be considered a Q30 on steroids. Base MSRP $49,850
The QX30 Concept features a range of crossover-specific exterior pieces, including meatier side sills and rear bumper, off-rod friendly body cladding, and large 21-inch wheels. All of the other exterior lines, curves, and arches are carried over from the Q30, meaning that while the two models may look similar, they are very different beasts. A pronounced aluminum-trimmed bumper along with cladding help to separate the QX30 from its Q30 relative. This added aggressiveness is what Infiniti hopes will draw the eyes of potentially new customers. Other new additions include redesigned headlights and taillights, and a refined rear end with newly styled exhaust tips.
Continuing throughout the interior of the car, the similarities between the Q30 and QX30 are again readily apparent. The dash of the QX30 Concept features a two-tone, brown-and-gray layout with the same violet accent lighting, LCD Screen with Infiniti InTouch in the center, and a console that seems to be production-ready. The seats are wrapped in luxurious leather along with the steering wheel and door panels. The seats feature brown leather centerpieces with gray, diamond-quilted bolsters that offer plenty of support and are perfectly accented by contrast stitching.
A Mercedes-sourced turbocharged, 2.0-liter inline-four cylinder engine will power the QX30 Concept. This power plant will produce 266 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque, pushing this car to 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds. A top speed is electronically limited to 140 mph.
