New Infiniti QX30 Concept Previewed Ahead of Geneva Reveal
Infiniti has released the first full image of the QX30 Concept, which will have its world premiere at next month’s Geneva motor show. The design study hints at a future compact crossover model.
The exterior shape is marked with flowing sections, upward cuts, and intersecting contours to create what Infiniti designers call a “dual wave” effect. Lightweighting measures include the use of carbon-fibre for the lower cladding and roof-bar supports.
“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 Infiniti design boss, Alfonso Albaisa.
30mm taller than Q30 Concept, Infiniti says the QX30 has been developed around a theme of “stylish protection”. The designers say they have given the car a more pronounced aluminium-trimmed bumper up front, while rounding up the rear with a ‘tough’ skid plate.
“The QX30 Concept has been designed to make occupants feel safe and protected inside, and customers can drive in or out of the city without worrying about nicks to the chromework,” explains Albaisa.
The car sits on 21-inch milled aluminium wheels shod in large profile tyres.
