Geneva Motor Show 2016: Infiniti QX30 breaks cover

Published 01 March 2016

Infiniti has launched its new QX30 crossover at the Geneva Motor Show. The Audi Q3 rival will go on sale in the summer from £29,490 and feature all-wheel drive as standard. 

Built in Sunderland, the QX30 stands 45mm higher than the Q30 hatch with which it shares most of its parts and interior. Unusually for a crossover, the QX30 gets all-wheel drive as standard (there’s no front-wheel drive version) and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Infiniti hasn’t officially said which of the Q30’s engines the QX30 will get, but we’d expect the bread-and-butter version to be powered by the 2.2-litre diesel with 170PS. In the Q30, it gets the car to 62mph from zero in 8.5 seconds, so expect to add half a second to that.

There are no details on trims or equipment levels either, but Infiniti tell us the QX30 will be better equipped like-for-like than the Germans however, in order to give it a USP beyond styling that Infiniti itself calls "turbulent, sculpted character."
