Taking a step away from the vertically-oriented dual-screen interior of the larger Q50 sedan, the Q30 instead moves back to physical buttons for climate control and audio systems.
It also appears that the Q30’s platform sharing with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class will extend to the interior of the new Infiniti compact.
Power window and seat switches look to have been cribbed from the Mercedes-Benz parts bin, along with steering wheel switches, and even the ignition barrel.
The instrument cluster and central display share Benz DNA too, right down to the centre display graphics.
In place of the column-mounted gear shifter of the A-class, the Q30 uses a floor mounted electronic gear selector.
Behind that gear selector appears to be a rotary controller - while it’s purpose is unknown yet, don’t be surprised if this is a variant of Benz’s COMAND infotainment controller.
Infiniti promises an interior crafted from high quality materials, with Dinamica man-made suede covering the roof lining and pillars.
The left- and right-hand-drive interiors shown also differ in their selection of finishes, while both feature contrasting stitching on the instrument binnacle, padded dash, and seats.
"The Q30's sculpted exterior and asymmetric cabin design are unmistakably Infiniti," said Roland Krueger, president of Infiniti.
"With the Q30, we are entering a new segment for Infiniti and broadening the offer to our customers.”
“This vehicle is a vital part of our strategy to be a top tier global manufacturer of premium cars."
The Q30 will receive its full unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 15, we’ll have more info from Frankfurt as it arrives.
