A prototype of the brand new Infiniti QX30 has recently been spied while testing in Europe ahead of a public debut. The compact SUV is reported to be built at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in England and will be added to the company’s lineup along with another model, the Q30 hatchback.
Although the spotted Infinity QX30 was under heavy camouflage, some details such as a prominent grille and a large Infiniti badge could still be noticed.
The QX30 will be riding on Mercedes-Benz’s MFA platform just like the Q30 and will be offered with an all-wheel drive setup.
The Infinity QX30 is believed to be powered by 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines borrowed from Mercedes.
The Infinity QX30 is expected to be unveiled in late 2015. The vehicle will compete against the likes of the Mercedez-Benz GLA, BMW X1 and Audi Q3. The company hasn’t disclosed the car’s price tag, but it could be somewhere around £28.000.
