Update 1 - A live image gallery has been added below the story.
Infiniti has released details and photographs on the Q30 that will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show tomorrow.
The Mercedes A-Class based hatchback will be built by Nissan in Sunderland, UK. It will launch in selected countries by the end of the year, and deliveries for the UK begin in January 2016.
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.
Features on the top spec Q30 include Automatic park assistance with Around View Monitor (AVM) and Moving Object Detection (MOD), Blind Spot Warning, Forward Collision Warning with Forward Emergency Braking, Auto High Beam Assist and Intelligent Cruise Control.
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.
Infiniti says that it has applied 'Dinamica,' a soft Italian suede-like material that is increasingly used in the fashion industry, in parts of the cabin like the door trims and arm rest.
