SUNDERLAND, United Kingdom – Production of the all-new 2017 Infiniti Q30 luxury crossover began on Thursday at the automaker’s Sunderland plant in the United Kingdom, with the first vehicles set to be exported to the U.S. and China.
The Q30 is expected to arrive at Infiniti dealerships soon.
Pricing has not been announced, but Infiniti told Edmunds earlier that buyers should expect a price tag of around $30,000-$32,000.
Key Q30 competitors include the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
Infiniti calls the Q30 an “active compact” car, but it spans several segments, including coupe, hatchback and crossover.
Nissan’s premium brand said the Q30 is “designed for a new generation of buyers who are not willing to be defined by their choice of vehicle body type.”
Edmunds says: Infiniti’s first compact model will be in showrooms – and your driveway – before too long.
