Infiniti QX30 Concept is… a mountain lion that stings?
According to Alfonso Albaisa, Executive Design Director at Infiniti, “The Q30 Concept was like a panther, lithe and slender. We transformed the QX30 Concept into a mountain lion, strong and muscular.” He added, “With its higher stance and edgier design to match its tough capabilities, you can almost visualize how the QX30 Concept floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee.”
We’re not quite sure that it looks like a mountain lion or whether it buzzes and stings, but it’s definitely more aggressive than the Q30 Concept that it shares a good deal of underlying structure with, and that seems appropriate.
We also think it stands apart as different than the cars it will compete against, like the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Lexus NX and Buick Encore, which is a good thing, considering that those models have a solid head-start in the burgeoning premium compact crossover segment in which the QX30 will play.
