The Infiniti Q30’s front was officially revealed with a re-announcement of the upcoming luxury hatchback’s 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show world debut, soon after the same picture got leaked online earlier this week.
Now the compact hatchback’s rear-end has been revealed unofficially from its ad filming site in Prague, Czech Republic.
The rear-end appears to be identical to the concept, save for a few changes such as, a redesigned bumper, tail lamp cluster, smaller trapezoidal exhaust pipes, and addition of a windshield wiper and rear reflectors. The side profile also appears largely identical to the concept.
The high-riding 5-door hatchback, developed, engineered and designed in Europe, is based on the Mercedes-Benz MFA (Modular Front-wheel drive Architecture) platform – the same platform that underpins the Mercedes A-Class and the GLA-Class also. While the Q30 will take on the Mercedes A-Class, its crossover version QX30 will rival with the its hatchback rival Mercedes A-Class’s crossover counterpart – GLA-Class.
The A-Class’ crosstown rivals Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series, and the GLA’s competitors Audi Q3 and BMW X1, would be the new Infiniti’s other contenders.
Following the world premiere in Frankfurt, the Q30 will go on into production at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the UK. The QX30 crossover will be announced soon after the hatchback’s production commences, and both Q30 and QX30 are expected to be exported to USA, Canada and China from this plant.
