The new Infiniti Q30 is slated for delivery later this year, but is making an impression for its technology, design and focus on a new generation of driver for Infiniti. It is based on an all-new turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with 208 horsepower boasting an impressive 258 lb-ft of torque. All of the power is channeled through a 7-speed, dual clutch transmission that pre-selects the gear for a quick response shift.
The bold and aggressive design with its smart curves and intelligent technologies are certain to attract a younger crowd. To enhance the driving experience, Infiniti added multiple features like the Around View Monitor, blind spot warning and forward collision warning with emergency braking. The interior is luxurious, with selected premium materials in a cabin that is very modern in its appeal and styled to what looks like a work of art. Lines are also curved, making an interestingly shaped dash to conveniently house all of the gauges and gadgets to make driving, navigating, changing audio and communicating easy tasks. Bluetooth, USB ports and all of the latest wireless technologies connect gadgets for voice calls and connection to Wi-Fi.
The exterior begins with a contoured mesh grill that transitions into head lamps and curves around to make the impressive lines along which the fenders and a double crease on the hood visually demonstrate the muscle behind this vehicle. The low roofline gives the vehicle a powerful crouch that sets this Infiniti apart from others and evolves the new-generation beast called the Q30.
