The QX30 concept is a compact SUV, and uses similar styling to the Q30 small hatchback that Infiniti will put into production this year.

21-inch wheels may be a little large for a production version of the car, but they give the QX30 concept an impressive stance.

The QX30 uses a rear-wheel-drive platform, but will likely be offered with all-wheel-drive.

Diamond upholstery and thick brown leather give the cabin a plush feel.

The QX30 would have a seven-speed automatic mated to a 2-liter turbocharged engine, according to Infiniti's initial specs.
