INFINITI Q30 continues Middle East winning spree

Infiniti Q30 is by far one of the bestselling vehicles for the company in the Middle East, says a statement released by the company Thursday.

“At launch, the INFINITI Q30 was one of the most hotly anticipated vehicles to be introduced to the region. One year on from the launch, the premium hatch has delivered in spades on the results front making it one of the bestselling vehicles for INFINITI in the Middle East,” the statement said.

Introduced in August 2016, INFINITI has delivered almost 1,200 vehicles to customers around the region, of which INFINITI Q30 the dominant performer among premium hatchbacks in the C-segment, added the statement.

New chapter

Juergen Schmitz, Managing Director, INFINITI Middle East, said: “When the INFINITI Q30 was introduced, it marked a new chapter for our brand. It was the first ever hatch to be introduced by INFINITI – something we felt could contribute strongly to the premium C-segment. Looking back on the performance in the past year, the numbers prove beyond a doubt the absolute success of this vehicle.”

The Q30 takes INFINITI’s signature design cues and evolves them into new dynamic shapes, with dramatic curves and C-pillars that arc forward in a crescent shape that emphasises motion, even when stationary.

An important differentiating characteristic of the Q30’s design is its combination of elevated stance with an overall height that is comparable with models in the traditional compact segment.

Driving on

“With its dynamic styling, enhanced performance and just an all-round premium motoring experience, we expect demand for this vehicle to continue to grow and drive strong results for the INFINITI brand in the region,” added Schmitz.

The INFINITI Q30 is available with 1.6L or 2.0L Turbo variants, with the 2.0L Turbo engine delivering a thrilling 208hp and 350Nm torque. When equipped with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the highest-performing engine in the range is capable of powering the INFINITI Q30 from 0 to 100kph in 7.3 seconds, described the statement.
