Frankfurt 2015: 2016 Infiniti Q30 Ready For The Floor


Bowing at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, the 2016 Infiniti Q30 active compact aims to attract a new generation of buyers now flocking to GLAs and XT5s.

The first vehicle to leave Infinitis newly upgraded facility in Sunderland, United Kingdom, the Q30 also marks the first time the premium brand is playing in the compact crossover space. The main goal behind the Q30 is to attract Gen X and Millennial buyers who believe a car is an expression of self rather than status,’ desire vehicles which defy traditional categorization, and offer a made-for-me approach to luxury.

To do this, the Q30 reinterprets Infinitis design language into its own, blending fluid lines with a rakish, elevated, coupe-esque profile. Going further, potential buyers can go from the base model to either Premium or Sport trims, which offer such items as: LED fog lamps; shapely bespoke bumper; body-color heated door mirror; 19-inch alloys; and raised or lowered stance, depending on trim chosen.

Power for the Q30 comes from a range of diesel and gasoline engines, with only the 2.0-liter 16-valve I4 coming to North America. Output is 208 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque, which is mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

The 2016 Infiniti Q30 is expected to hit select markets later this year. Price of admission has not been stated as of this writing.

    We’re not sure how they implemented it, but after some other games’ uses we compiled a set of guidelines for our preferred implementation, which matches what you see in Skullgirls.nSince they are using the legacy controller notification, I’m hopeful that they adhered more closely than USF4 did. But ultimately that really boils down to how their game handles controlle1/profiles and how rigid that code is.
