Infiniti teases a new C-Segment car. It's called the Q30

Seems that the luxury vehicle division of the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan wants to compete in the C-Segment against cars like the BMW 1-Series, Audi A3 and Mercedes A-Class. To do that they have created the Infiniti Q30 Concept and are going to reveal it at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

Not much is known, but the production version should be introduced early next year, and should be very similar to this concept. With this car Infiniti wants to appeal to a younger audience and expand their product portfolio to achieve an increase in sales.

Alfonso Albaisa, Infiniti Executive Design Director describes the Q30 concept has a “slender, sleek and seductive” look, adding that, “When you see speedy big cats, like cheetahs, they have a slenderness and a lightweight stride. It’s almost like they’re floating. That’s the muscularity we were aiming for with Q30 Concept”.

This is the first car the three-time Formula One world champion, Sebastian Vettel, which is also Infiniti’s Director of Performance, has influenced from the very beginning of the development phase.
