2017 Infiniti Q30 Sport AWD, Review, Specifications.The Q30 is similar to a crossover, that’s not it. It is also an Infiniti, which is also not accurate. Basically, it’s a rebadged Mercedes-Benz GLA, but to varying degrees and for a good effect, Infiniti has a lot of work in the differentiation of their potato-shaped thing of Benz potato-shaped thing, that is the story heard ’round the Internet provide that This knockoff only a Mercedes, is not entirely correct. The Q30 is its own strange animal, and therein lies some of its appeal.
The large hatchback body and 7.5 inches of ground clearance implies crossover, but it is only with front-wheel drive in the United States all-wheel drive is with European models, the restricted Q30 we was drove so equipped, but will default on its QX30 a Q30 “crossover” version with more body cladding and ground clearance.

The window switch, steering wheel buttons, door mounting power seat controls, and the steering column stalks stand out as the only visible Benz components. Infiniti’s seven-inch touch screen crowns the central console. Chief Engineer Vehicle Grahame Cornforth describes the integration of your screen with proprietary electronic platform Mercedes’ as having been a colossal undertaking. We would describe it as worthwhile, especially the work that went into that the diagnostic equipment, the physician can play with Q30 German electronics at the dealership Infiniti.
