HONG KONG, China - Infiniti has released a full-body images of its QX30 concept ahead of its debut at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show in March.

The crossover hints, Infiniti says, at a future premium compact vehicle.


Infiniti executive design director Alfonso Albaisa said: "We wanted the spontaneous fluidity of the concept design to cut through the urban clutter and rigidity, reflecting its go-anywhere and spur-of-the-moment nature.

"It's been designed to make occupants feel safe and protected and customers can drive in or out of the city without worrying about nicks to the chromework."


The concept sports what Infiniti calls "stylish protection" through its pronounced and aluminium-trimmed bumpers and sculpted skid plate. It has 21" alloy rims, scultped roof rails and carbon-fibre body elements. The new crossover is 30mm taller than the Q30 concept.

According to the automaker: "The car’s smooth exterior shape is composed of bold sections, deep upward cuts, and intersecting contours to create Infiniti’s hallmark 'dual wave' effect."

The concept will be officially unveiled at the 2015 Geneva auto show on March 3.
