For a decade, Infiniti's only cars were the well-regarded G and M models, but the company recently rebranded to a Q model designation for its entire line-up. At next month's Frankfurt auto show, the company will debut the first completely new car to arise with the Q brand.
The car, shown as a concept, will be called the Q30, and hits the premium compact segment.
Don't expect a rebranded Versa, as Infiniti says it developed the Q30 from the ground-up, consulting with Director of Performance Sebastian Vettel. The car will let Infiniti compete with the Lexus CT200h and BMW 1-series.

CNET will be on hand in Frankfurt for the Q30 unveiling on September 10.
