Infiniti has revealed the stylish and highly capable QX30 Concept, the design vision that will inspire a new premium compact crossover.

Combining the sleek lines of the coupe with the command sitting and all-wheel drive of a crossover, the QX30 Concept is just as adept at navigating high street as it is exploring weekend getaways.

With its sharp looks and original features, the QX30 Concept was designed by an international team to appeal to global customers who are less likely to follow tradition. The concept’s compact footprint matches their search for a product that suits their urban lifestyle. The elevated stance of the crossover also provides a higher visual perspective in city traffic and in parking maneuvers.

The QX30 Concept is the latest in a series of concept vehicles for which Infiniti has announced a definite and clear intent for production. The QX30 Concept-inspired crossover will be launched next year.

The body looks wider and thicker, thanks to the 21-inch wheels, large tires, and increased blackout around the wheel opening. The satin chrome front bumper is low with big side openings, giving off an air of rugged protection. The sense of stylish fortification is reinforced by the hardy kick plates under the doors and the tough-looking but sculpted skid plate in the rear.

Inside, the bold and dark environment harmonizes with the outdoors appeal of the exterior. All four seats have been streamlined for a suspended look, evoking a feeling of honed athleticism. The U-shaped seat frame is partially wrapped with a layer of premium Connolly saddle leather offset by blue stitching. The contrast between the exposed and covered parts of the frame lends a three-dimensional quality to the interior.

The array of powertrains is expected to cater to a variety of lifestyle aspirations around the world, depending on whether customers prefer a sportier or a more efficient drive.

The Concept gives a glimpse into the level of technology available, features not typically found in compact cars. For example, Infiniti InTouch keeps the driver connected to his digital world when on the move.
