Targeted at Generations X and Y, the Q30 features Infiniti’s signature design cues with the double-arch grille with 3D mesh, double-wave bonnet, a C-pillar that arcs forward, and low-slung roof-line.

The top-end variant comes with LED front fog lamps, body-coloured and heated door mirrors, 19-inch alloy wheels and chrome dual rectangular exhaust finishers.

The Q30 is powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine, with either 120 hp or 154 hp, and 1.5-litre and 2.2-litre diesel engines, with 107 hp or 168 hp output. Premium and Sport models get a 2.0-litre, petrol engine producing 211 PS. All are four-cylinder units and are paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission or a six-speed manual transmission.

The cabin features Active Noise Cancellation, and offers custom-designed trims such as ‘City Black’ that blends black upholstery with purple stitching, ‘Cafe Teak’ that combines brown and black upholstery with black stitching, and ‘Gallery White’ that gives a high-contrast appearance featuring white leather with red accents.
