Small but tall: Rymco brings the Infiniti Q30 to Lebanon

August 12, 2016

In being a new entrant into the fastest growing premium compact segment, the Q30 is a first for Infiniti. Infiniti has broken the mold with this release which strays from its typically big, bold and overpowering demeanor.

Now on Middle Eastern shores courtesy of Rymco, the latest addition gives the thumbs up to an already shining brand, with its bold and beautiful image compounded into the fact that this is the smallest car ever made for the legendary Infiniti series.

Fierce competition within its segment means the designers at Infiniti had to give that extra focus on the little details, with an extra boost of charm to be sure to stay ahead. This has culminated into signature design cues which shape the car’s dynamic engineering.

A double-arch grille with 3D mesh draws its inspiration from its older brother, the Q50. This curvature has been dramatized to an extent, moving over the bonnet and with flow over the Fenders, and for the length of its body.

The beauty in its engineering is that Inifiniti has managed to swerve into that happy medium of being a cross-over of sorts that can also get away with being a family hatch, depending on which way you look at it, or what you need it for as it strikes a pose. A family package will remain comfortable when hauled up in the Q30, but it won’t feel too spacious should you choose to be a lone rider.

A good look at the Q30 brings to view its signature C-pillar which juts forward in an arc, bringing on a crescent shape inciting an illusion of fast motion – even when the car is in its parking gear. That pitted against its low-slung roof-line elevates the cars stance, adding even more to its already striking image with a delicate mix of sculptural shapes.

LED front fog lamps, LED front fog lamps and heated door mirrors are part of the package, throw in a chrome dual rectangular exhaust finisher, with 18-inch alloy wheels.

And when it comes to technology, the Q30 is teeming with formidable talent, boasting the highest level of assistive technology within its segment. Around View Monitor, Moving Object Detection, Intelligent Parking Assist, as well as Forward Collision Warning with Forward Emergency Braking and Bling Sport Warning are all givens.

The Q30 is available with either a 1.6L or 2.0L Turbo variant, in a 2WD configuration, and the 2.0L Turbo is offered with an optional AWD drivetrain, with its 2.0 L delivering 208hp and 350Nm Torque.

Riding tall but still remaining small, the Q30, with its slick but modest image looks the business when accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. If you like your cars big, but want to keep it compact, your needs will be accommodated for with the Q30.
