Infiniti has released the first image of its Q30 Concept, which the company says offers a unique fusion of body styles, merging of the dynamic design and sportiness of a coupe, the roominess of a hatch and the higher stance of a crossover.

The vehicle, which borrows design cues from the automaker’s Essence, Etherea and EMERG-E concept trilogy, will make its official debut at next month’s Frankfurt show.

Still no tech details as yet, with the brand continuing to tease the Q30′s design approach, saying that it’s aimed at younger customers seeking an alternative to traditional premium compact vehicles. The Q30 Concept, it adds, reflects the brand’s vision to deliver new levels of design, materials, fit and finish, craftsmanship and performance.

In line with Infiniti’s new naming convention, the ‘Q30′ moniker indicates that the resulting series production offering will be smaller than and priced below the Infiniti Q50 compact exec, which means it’s aimed squarely at the likes of the BMW 1 Series and Mercedes-Benz A-Class. More on this one when the time comes.
