The first Infiniti Q30 came out today from the production line of Nissan’s factory in Sunderland, England. The company invested £250 million in the factory so that it is able to manufacture the Q30.
The Q30 has received five stars in Euro NCAP’s crash tests and it is based on the MFA platform of Mercedes-Benz, while it shares many elements with the A-Class, CLA and GLA. It will be offered with a range of petrol and diesel engines, among which will be a 1.6 liter that is available with either 120 or 154 hp, a 1.5 liter diesel with 107 hp and a 2.2 liter diesel producing 168 hp. Additionally, there is a 2 liter petrol engine that delivers 208 hp, but it is only available for the Premium and Sport versions. The engines will be offered with either a 6-speed manual transmission or optionally with a 7-speed automatic, dual clutch.
