Infiniti has upgraded the specifications of both the Q30 and QX30 for 2018 along with the introduction of a new cross product global grading structure, featuring the trim names of Pure, Luxe and Sport.
Prices start at £20,600 for the Q30 1.6t petrol version with the Sport repositioned to offer even better value than before from £26,060.
The entry grade Pure (previously SE) comes equipped with standard features such as forward collision avoidance, automatic headlamps, LED running lamps, Bluetooth audio streaming and multi-function leather steering wheel.
Customers who want to choose a more complete package can either go in the comfort direction, called Luxe or into sporty models, dubbed Sport. Both grades offer more engine choices, along with InTouch navigation, 18-inch (Luxe) and 19-inch (Sport) alloy wheels, dual rectangular chrome exhaust finishers and lane departure warning as standard features.
Specification on both includes DAB radio, intelligent cruise control and blind spot warning. Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection helps make it very easy to park, and if that is not enough, auto park uses twelve sensors to measure the dimensions of the parking spot and help steer the vehicle into it; the driver only needs to apply the accelerator and brakes.
The Q30 Sport and Sport tech versions feature specific design elements such as sports bumpers with a diffuser at the back. A 2cm lower ride height features on the 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engine versions.
The QX30 will only feature in Luxe and Luxe Tech grades but offers design updates, with optional 19-inch alloy wheels attributing to a more commanding look.
Both Q30 and QX30 offer a set of connected services, such as “InTouch Tracking” to track the car in case it was stolen, and “My Car Finder” to see the whereabouts of the car on a map and provide a route back to its location.
The new Q30 and QX30 are available to order now and will be in showrooms as of March 2018.
