It may sound unfamiliar to North American drivers, but this nameplate has been around for some in many parts of the world. The initial version came four years ago. It is the smallest vehicle in the brand’s lineup, a real entry-level model. Interestingly, it is also the only hatchback Infiniti has to offer. As you may presume, it is in a close relationship with the QX30. Therefore, it shares a lot of parts with Mercedes-Benz A-Class. The two models ride on the same platform and share lots of parts. However, the German model has been redesigned meanwhile, so we expect the same from the Japanese company in the near future. According to the latest reports, the new model would once again come based on the A-Class, but also again with lots of its own, distinctive details. We expect it to come as the 2020 Infiniti Q30.
2020 Infiniti Q30 Redesign
Allegedly, we are about to see 2020 Infiniti Q30 completely redesigned. It’s not that the current model is bad, but it’s not doing pretty well on the market. Therefore, various reports were suggesting discontinuation. According to the last ones, we will rather see a complete redesign. The Japanese manufacturer will take another try. Once again, we count on a tight relationship with the A-Class.
The German company already redesigned its entry-level model and it comes with lots of novelties. We expect the same from the 2020 Infiniti Q30. It will borrow the platform once again and also come with many mechanical parts shared. On the other side, count on the brand’s recognizable styling philosophy, which involves a lot of clean lines and shapes. We are still waiting to hear something from the official about the new model. At this point, it’s all about rumors and speculations.
As we already mentioned, the new 2020 Infiniti Q30 will once again have a lot in common with its German counterpart. Therefore, we are pretty sure it will ride on the same platform, which has been introduced with the new A-Class a year ago. The German hatchback has grown for a bit, so we expect Infiniti to do the same. This would mean about an inch in the wheelbase, and a couple more in overall length. With such an increase, benefits in terms of interior space seem certain.
When it comes to the styling, we expect from the Japanese carmaker to apply its latest design language. Infiniti constantly updates its styling philosophy, but rarely goes with radical changes. Therefore, we have no doubt that the 2020 Infiniti Q30 will come be an evolution of the current model, with recognizable curvy lines and lots of clean areas, which is completely opposite to what we can see on most cars today.
This redesign is also about to bring a completely new interior layout. We expect improvements in many aspects, though we have to say that the current model is already pretty amazing when it comes to interior design. First of all, this hatchback is characterized by a pretty spacious cabin, with pretty generous legroom in both rows. The new model could only become better, as it is about to feature a longer wheelbase.
The interior quality has always been undisputable with this model. Premium-grade materials are all around the cabin, while the dashboard comes with plenty of style. The new 2020 Infiniti Q30 will come with aesthetical updates, but also with the even better overall quality.
Finally, we count on big tech updates. This includes not only a new infotainment system, but also big updates in terms of advanced safety systems and driver aids.
2020 Infiniti Q30 Engines
The current engine lineup consists of two gasoline and two diesel engines. Considering that this hatchback is primarily designed for Europe, we will start with oil-burners. So far, base models have been feature Renault’s 1.5-liter dCi with around 110 hp. We expect this engine to carry on, but with more power. A bigger 2.2-liter diesel from Mercedes-Benz delivers around 170 hp. We expect it will be replaced with a new 2.0-liter bi-turbo unit.
When it comes to gasoline engines, count on two units from the German manufacturer. Base models will feature a smaller 1.4-liter unit, but this one comes in various output versions, so we expect to see 2020 Infiniti Q30 in a couple of variants as well. A bigger 2.0-liter unit will be reserved for higher trims. Once again, it is possible to see different output variants in the offer. Count on both manual and automatic gearboxes in the offer.
2020 Infiniti Q30 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Infiniti Q30 still waits for the official confirmation. At this point, we can only speculate about the possible launch date. Still, some reports suggest the new model could come already in the next year. When exactly? It’s hard to say.
When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger surprises. The current model starts at around 27.000 Euro, so we presume that the new model won’t deviate too much.
Once again, these are just rumors and our speculations, so that this article with a big reserve. We are eagerly waiting to hear something from the officials.
