Infiniti showed off the QX30 Concept at the 2015 New York Auto Show, displaying a small, luxury crossover SUV that slots beneath the QX50.
What Is It?
The QX30 Concept is a five-seat, four-door compact luxury SUV with tall, 7.6-inch ground clearance, and all-wheel drive. The he QX30 Concept shares a family relationship with the Q30 concept that debuted last year at the Frankfurt Auto Show, but the QX30 Concept about 1.2 inches taller than the Q30 Concept.
What Infiniti Is Saying
“We wanted the spontaneous fluidity of the QX30 Concept design to cut through the urban clutter and rigidity, reflecting its go-anywhere and spur-of-the-moment nature,” said Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director. “With its higher stance and edgier design to match its tough capabilities, you can almost visualize how the QX30 Concept floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.”
