Infiniti Q30 (2015 – 2019)

Not a current model

The Infiniti Q30 was a medium-sized five-door hatchback. It was based on the previous Mercedes-Benz A-Class platform, although it was built at the Nissan plant in Sunderland in the UK.

The Q30 had a high-riding sister called the QX30, which is not covered on this page. Now that the model is no longer in production, we are unlikely to build a page of reviews for that vehicle.

The Infiniti Q30 received mixed scores from the UK motoring media, ranging from poor to good. It was praised for being an improvement on the Mercedes model on which it’s based, especially in terms of ride comfort and reduced noise levels. However, it was criticised for being outdated and poor value compared to newer rivals in its class.

Infiniti announced that it would be withdrawing from all Western Europe car markets by 2020. As a result, production of the Q30 ended in Summer 2019. Servicing and maintenance for Q30 customers will be handled by Nissan dealers.
