Infiniti Q30 review - Reliability and Safety
Available safety features are comprehensive, and the Q30 earned a five-star Euro NCAP rating
The Q30 is available with Infiniti’s three-year or 60,000-mile warranty, which even covers any imperfections in the paint.
Safety features include Blind Spot Warning, that warns of other vehicles in neighbouring lanes hidden in the driver’s blind spots. Forward Collision Warning with Forward Emergency Braking, alerts the driver to hazards in the road ahead – and ultimately takes automatic action, applying the brakes to help avoid or mitigate the effects of a collision.
Auto High Beam Assist, a highly-intuitive technology improves safety during night-time driving by automatically dipping headlamps to avoid ‘blinding’ cars driving in the opposite direction. Meanwhile, intelligent Cruise Control can maintain a safe distance from the car in front for a safe and relaxing drive.
Euro NCAP gave the car a five-star crash test rating, thanks to this range of safety kit. Of special interest is the fact that the car has an excellent pedestrian score of 91 per cent.
