Infiniti Q30 (£20,550 to £32,330)
The Infiniti Q30 is a “premium active compact”, its manufacturer confirmed. Its purpose is to be a fashionable, practical, and striking statement that has a spacious cabin - but is compact enough externally to manoeuvre easily in busy cities. It has 5 doors, a hatchback-style tailgate and a 430-litre cargo capacity.
Engines include the: 1.6-litre 122PS petrol, 1.6-litre 156PS petrol, 2.0-litre 211PS petrol, 1.5-litre 109PS diesel and 2.2-litre 170PS diesel. 0-62mph times range from 7.3 to 12 seconds and average fuel consumption is 42.2 to 68.9mpg. Choose front or 4-wheel drive and 6-speed manual, or 7-speed automatic, transmission.
Infiniti Q30 trims are: SE, Premium, Premium InTouch, Premium Tech, Premium Tech InTouch, Sport and Sport InTouch. Equipment highlights include the Around View Monitor which provides a 360 degree, aerial, view of the surroundings to make parking easier. Images come via a camera on each side of the vehicle plus a colour screen.
Infiniti Q50 (£29,700 to £48,505)
The Infiniti Q50 is the manufacturer's “technologically refined sports saloon”, it explained. Its purpose is to provide comfortable, luxurious and refined transport for executives that make a statement. All versions have 4 doors but cargo capacity varies throughout the range. Expect either: 400, 450 or 500-litres.
Q50 engine options include the: 2.2-litre 170PS diesel, 2.0-litre 211PS petrol, 3.0-litre V6 405PS petrol and the 3.5-litre 364PS Hybrid (petrol and electric). 0-62mph times range from 5.1 to 8.9 seconds and average fuel consumption from 31 to 65.7mpg. Pick front or 4-wheel drive and 6-speed manual, or 7-speed auto, transmission.
Trim levels are: SE, Premium, Premium Tech, S Sport and S Sport Tech. A key feature is the Forward Emergency Braking System. It scans the road for hazards then – should a motorist fail to react – brakes automatically to avoid a collision or mitigate its severity.
Infiniti QX30 (£29,790 to £33,820)
The QX30 is the manufacturer's “premium active crossover”. Its purpose is to build on the strengths of its sibling – the Infiniti Q30 – so the styling is more off-road, it has slightly higher ground clearance and standard 4-wheel-drive. Such strengths complement its 5 doors, hatchback-look tailgate and 430-litre boot.
Propulsion comes courtesy of the 2.0-litre, 211PS, petrol engine and the 2.2-litre, 170PS, diesel engine. Both are teamed with 7-speed automatic transmission. QX30 0-62mph time is either 7.3 or 8.5 seconds and average fuel consumption is either 42.2 or 57.6mpg.
Premium and Premium Tech are the trims. Equipment highlights include the Automatic Park Assistance feature which is part of the optional Tech and Safety Packs. It scans for a suitable size, empty, parallel parking space then automatically steers into it. The motorist continues to operate the throttle, gearbox and brakes.
Infiniti Q60 (£33,990 to £46,690)
The Infiniti Q60 is a “premium sports coupé”, the manufacture confirmed. Its purpose is to be a thrilling, sharp handling, and powerful fashion statement which makes the pulse race. This sharply-styled coupé has 2 doors and the boot volume is 342-litres.
The 2.0-litre, 211PS, petrol engine and 3.0-litre V6, 405PS, petrol engine provide propulsion. The former is teamed with rear-wheel-drive, the latter with 4-wheel-drive and both work alongside 7-speed automatic transmission only. The 0-62mph time is either 5.0 or 7.3 seconds. Average fuel consumption is either 31.0 or 41.4mpg.
Q60 trim levels are: Premium, Premium Tech, S Sport and S Sport Tech. Equipment highlights include Lane Departure Warning that warns the motorist if the vehicle wanders. The Lane Departure Prevention System, in contrast, briefly/slightly steers back within the lane markings if the motorist fails to respond to the warnings.
