New pictures show dramatic Infiniti Q30. Design takes cues from coupes, crossovers and conventional hatches

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.

Hopefully as this is based on Mercedes A class chassis it will ride a lot better , as by all current test ,s of the A class all seem to suggest its ride is not up there with its competitors. Mind you Nissan are better at understanding suspension settings me thinks.
