Infiniti has flipped the lid on its new QX30 crossover concept, revealed in Geneva ahead of a full production debut next year.

As expected, and as teasers last month revealed, the new compact SUV is essentially a jacked-up version of the earlier Q30 concept.

Infiniti has made a number of small but significant styling tweaks, however, including new bumpers and skid plates at both ends, roof rails, new wheels and the requisite cladding to the guards.

Much of the QX30 concept’s exterior styling could comfortably transition to production, including the sharp character folds and - if only on a flagship sports model - the large wheels and aggressive front bumper.

As with many ‘on trend’ compact SUVs, the QX30’s design focuses more on style than practicality, but Infiniti design boss Alfonso Albaisa promises there’s more to this concept.

“The QX30 Concept looks as capable as it is meant to be. The artistic touches we put in lift the crossover to another level from being just another utility vehicle,” he said in Geneva today.

The concept’s interior has also been lightly updated with new colours and minor design tweaks, and it now appears clear that we can expect much of the cabin’s styling to carry over to production.

The Q30 and QX30 twins are both built on a version of Mercedes-Benz’s new MFA platform, which makes them cousins of the A-Class hatch and GLA crossover.

The QX30 will be ofered with a range of petrol and diesel engines and, while Infiniti hasn’t offered details, we can likely expect Mercedes-Benz’s 2.0 litre petrol and 2.1 diesel units to feature.

In concept form, power is provided by an unspecified 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine, connected to an all-wheel-drive system through a seven-speed auto - a combination that sounds more than a little like the 155kW GLA 250 4Matic.

Watch for the QX30, and its Q30 hatch sibling, to make their production debut in 2016.
