Two years after its concept was previewed to the world, the Infiniti Q30 premium compact SUV will again make its way to the 2015 International Frankfurt Motor Show, but this time in its full production guise.

Infiniti claims that the Q30 will be a category-breaking model, offering a car that’s developed for customers seeking “urban individuality”. The Q30 Active Compact is essentially a re-skinned Mercedes-Benz A-Class, with both sharing the same 2.0-litre turbocharged engine and front-wheel drive architecture, of course. This move is part of Daimler and Nissan-Renault’s technology sharing agreement, so that should come as no surprise.

Despite sharing the same platforms, the Q30 is said to embody the company’s dynamic driving prowess without sacrificing ride and handling. We can also expect Infiniti to roll out the QX30 crossover – one that will take on the likes of BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. The Q30 will make its global debut on 15 September 2015 at Frankfurt.
