The not-yet launched Infiniti Q30 compact crossover will essentially be using a re-worked version of the Mercedes-Benz MFA (Modular Front Architecture) platform found on the A-Class, B-Class, CLA, GLA and the upcoming CLA Shooting Brake.
In a surprising twist of events, it seems that the development for the car will be largely carried by Mercedes-Benz instead of Infiniti, at least according to Dieter Zetsche.
Speaking with Autocar, the magic mustache man at the helm of Daimler AG had this to say: “We would take the lead on developing any compact car. It is our platform.”
From the reports coming in so far, we understand that the Infiniti Q30 will be the Infiniti version of the Mercedes-Benz GLA, with some of the production sites for the two models being shared in the future.
