The crossover concept hints at a future premium compact vehicle and gives a strong indication of the brand’s commitment to this segment.
Pushing design boundaries, the QX30 Concept combines the sleek lines of a coupe with the distinguishing features and higher stance of a crossover. Looking poised for action, yet fluid, it promises to deliver effortless capability with style.
The theme of “stylish protection” is evident from nose to tail. The designers have given QX30 Concept a more pronounced aluminium-trimmed bumper up front, while rounding up the rear with a tough skid plate sculpted with nuanced graphics.
The QX30 Concept’s smooth exterior shape is composed of bold sections, deep upward cuts, and intersecting contours to create Infiniti’s hallmark “dual wave” effect. The aerodynamic design accentuates its athletic silhouette, showcasing its confident capability. Carbon fibre in the lower cladding and roof-bar supports adds to the car’s lightweight performance character.
The 21-inch wheels and larger profile tyres are core to the crossover’s sure-footed stance. The spokes are a unique mix of three-dimensional milled aluminium finished in different tones which interlock in a distinctive manner.
Even the roof racks have gone beyond their merely functional use. Extending inward toward the centre line, alongside the glass roof, they provide a “sculpture” for the rear passengers to look through, resulting in an unusual perspective of the world outside.
QX30 Concept will be officially unveiled on March 3 during Infiniti’s press conference at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show
