The 2016 Infiniti Q30 hatch hasn’t yet made its local debut, but in the leadup to the premium small car’s arrival ANCAP has awarded the Q30 a 5-star safety score.

ANCAP CEO, James Goodwin, praised the Q30’s crash test results.

“This model performed well across the range of demanding physical crash tests,” Mr Goodwin said.

The Q30 scored 32.12 out of 38 points for adult occupant protection, 42.22 out of 49 for child occupant protection, and 32.97 out of 36 for pedestrian protection, boosted by the standard fitment of an active bonnet.

Mr Goodwin also praised the standard inclusion of autonomous emergency braking across the range, however the lack of a pedestrian detection function was noted.

Mr Goodwin also raised concerns about the lacks of features like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.

“Physical crash performance is important, but avoiding a crash is what we’re aiming for. It’s pleasing to see Infiniti provide AEB standard for the Australian market,” he said.

Infiniti’s smallest model borrows its underpinnings from the Mercedes-Benz A- and B-Class compact range, and is set to go on sale in Australia towards the end of the third quarter of 2016.
