Buying Guide: Infiniti Q30 event (2015-2020)


The Infiniti Q30 is more of an A-Class in a separate jacket. What should you focus on at events?

Winning the market share with a new paid brand requires patience. In Europe, Infiniti, a luxury Nissan unit, is trying to increase sales with a low-cost model. Although the Infiniti Q30 does not claim to be a real Infiniti, and when the new one is plagued by high prices, it compensates for it as an event with other available features.

Body

Within the Infiniti range, the Q30 is odd. It is not a sedan or SUV and the technical base is not Japanese, but German. Under the skin, the model is based on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class (W176), the result of a technical partnership between Renault-Nissan and Mercedes-Benz. You can’t see it from the outside. Fascinating styles share fashion indicators with greater Infinititis, such as the shape of the lanterns and grille, the non-penetrating rib and the different kink in the standard C. Q30 column has crossovers 1.49 meters high. The Q30 game has a sporty look and is close to the pitch. Additional pricing options include flexible LED lights, privacy glass and glass roof.

Interior

The natural structure of the exterior develops partially in the interior. Despite the important details of Infiniti, the German nature of many elements remains to be clearly identified. The dashboard has an Mercedes-Benz model analogue / digital device with an 7-inch infotainment system. for taller and taller people. The advantages are the high quality of the equipment, good finishing and good sound reduction. Depending on the version, the interior has a luxurious or more sporty decoration. Optional packages include navigation, Bose sound, live parking assistant and various security systems, including blind warning, cruise control, emergency braking system and camera system.

engine

There are three gasoline and two diesel engines, all four-cylinder needles and a turbocharger. The 1.6t petrol engine produces 122 hp and 200 Nm or 156 hp and 250 Nm. The 2.0t petrol engine delivers a maximum of 211 hp and 350 Nm. The small diesel engine is 1.5d (109 hp, 260 Nm), the top diesel is 2.2d (170 hp, 350 Nm). With the exception of the smallest diesel engine, which is also installed in the Dacia, Renault and Nissan models, all engines come from Mercedes-Benz. Time series problems that some petrol and diesel engines come from Das Haus seems to ignore the W176 series, and therefore also the Q30. However, it never hurts to listen to possible noises that may indicate wear. An additional precautionary measure with the 1.6t is the turbocharger mode and the turbocharger vacuum valve. The 1.5d is the only engine to have a timeline.

Infection

The entry-level Q30 models have a front wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. The distribution of two seven-speed routes, 7DCT, is available at an additional cost. Such automatic distribution is common on more powerful 1.6t and 2.0t engines and 2.2d diesel engines. Four-wheel drive is available at an additional cost on 2.0t and 2.2d. With 7DCT automatic transmission (Mercedes-Benz 7G DCT automatic transmission), check that the gear change is smooth, shock-free and noise-free. The duration of the oil change for automatic shipping is 5 / 100,000 km.

Suspended

Like the A-Class, the Q30 has a free-standing suspension with McPherson scratches on the front and a massive rear construction. Power steering is electric. Despite the technical similarities, Infiniti has its own driving habits. For conventional models, the emphasis is on comfort, with long suspension transport and a pleasant steering, while the sports versions exchange comfort by further contact with the road and operating system. The size of the wheels starts at 17 inches and goes up to 19 inches.

Which one should I have?

The 1.66 hp gasoline engine with 156 hp is a good match for the Q30 and is the most obvious choice. Which does not mean there is anything wrong with other engines, because they also do their job well. The base model has 17-inch wheels and hubcaps with manual air conditioning. The most interesting and complete are Luxe (LED fog lights in the front, rear parking indicators, maritime transport controls) or Luxe Tech (invisible part warning, Nappa skin, electric seat adjustment). Sportier drivers can choose from Sport (19 inches, sports optical package, sports suspension, sports brakes, LED fog lights) and Sport Tech (black roof, sports seats, nappa leather). Commercial versions are based on basic design and include 17-inch alloys and / or leather upholstery.

Infinity Q30

Should this one be him?

The Infiniti Q30 is a luxury car with an attractive design and enough characteristic features. The lack of sales success is mainly due to (also) high prices and a well-established system in the system of Audi A3, BMW 1-Series and its first cousin Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Not to mention the alternatives such as the Lexus CT 200h, Volvo V40 and all the ‘premium’ crossovers in which the C-section is extremely rich. The lack of commercial success does not change the positive features of the Q30, which can also compete for quality and top of its class. The fact that Infiniti has withdrawn from Europe is an extra guarantee in itself, but not at competitive prices. Even if the event, it is not an automatic deal and because of the limited distribution, the price is higher than you think.
