Infinity, the international premier brand manufacturing and marketing arm of Japanese automaker Nissan is set to unveil its 2017 Infiniti QX30 nameplate soon. In a conscious effort to differentiate the QX30 – from its hatchback predecessor the Q30 – Infiniti is branding the new model as a “premium active crossover” vehicle. This implies that the 2017 model will be nothing like the garden-variety crossovers now on the market.
So, does the 2017 Infiniti QX30 really rate all the hype that its manufacturers have built around it? Read on to find out!
2017 Infiniti QX30 – Looks and Shape
Based on officially published details, spy photos, and leaked information, the 2017 Infiniti QX30 will inherit its DNA from some of Infiniti’s existing catalogue. Take for instance the signature front double-arch grille: The top and bottom arches mirror each other to produce the company’s signature on the 2017 Infiniti QX30.
The front, rear and sides of the new Infiniti will also inherit the company’s eye-inspired trademarked design for LED headlights. And you’ll even see a glimpse of this DNA character trait in the tail lamps as well.
One of the distinctive and most recognizable of Infiniti design features – the crescent-cut C-pillar – can also be seen on the side of the 2017 QX30. Also prominent is a shoulder line that dips and rises, and spans the entire vehicle; giving it a longer, more sculpted look. This character trait was so intricate to produce that the design engineers had to come up with a brand new 3D manufacturing process to pull it off!
19-inch aluminium wheels round things up to give the Infiniti QX30 a unique yet familiar look.
