The Infiniti Q30 Concept has been revealed and it gives us our best idea yet of what the production version of the VW Golf rival will look like when it begins rolling off the line at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in 2015.
The small premium hatchback will make its debut at the Frankfurt motor show 2013 this week.
Infiniti has attempted to combine design elements from coupes and crossovers, as well as conventional hatchbacks, in an attempt to attract younger buyers to the brand. Similarly, the flowing interior is made from a mix of materials intended to appeal to a generation that the company believes is appreciative of striking design.
Highlights include stereo speakers built into the ceramic seatbacks and special stitching on the dash. Infiniti has also confirmed that the Q30 will be the first car to be developed with input from its director of performance – Formula One champion, Sebastian Vettel – from the very beginning.
