Infiniti: GLA-Based QX30 is not a successful product

Only 8,101 were sold last year

That’s how many QX30 compact crossovers Infiniti sold last year in the United States, representing a massive decrease of 42.5 percent compared to 2017.

What went wrong with the Infiniti-badged version?

Well, the QX30 is “not a very successful product.” These are words of Infiniti’s new president. In an interview this week with Motor Authority, Christian Meunier’s words for better plan with the QX30 is here, but it won’t be linked to Mercedes and its GLA anymore: “It will be replaced in the future by an all-Infiniti platform.

After all, the QX30 is not an old product considering it made its debut in production guise a little over three years ago at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The QX30’s direct replacement with other model might benefit. (From a Variable Compression-Turbocharged (VC-T) gasoline engine as implemented in the QX50).
The larger crossover offers 268 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 280 pound-feet (380 Nm) of torque from its 2.0-liter unit. 
But Meunier specified the new crossover could get a smaller engine featuring the same tech, possibly in a hybrid setup.
