WHAT’S NEW?

Herald Sun - Motoring - - PRES­TIGE -

PRICE

The base price of $38,900 is not as sharp as hoped but the value is good and it con­tin­ues through all three models.

EQUIP­MENT

Think baby Benz and you’ll get the ba­sic pack­age, from 17 and 18-inch al­loys to auto safety brak­ing and speed sign recog­ni­tion.

PER­FOR­MANCE

The 1.6-litre base en­gine is noth­ing spe­cial, even run­ning in Sport, but the seven-speed DSG is good and the 2.0-litre petrol is more than enough for the car and class.

DRIV­ING

It’s sur­pris­ingly plush in the sus­pen­sion, com­fort­able and quiet. It’s no sports car but Benz al­ways has the A45 AMG.

DE­SIGN

In­finiti calls the Q30 a cross­over but it could also be seen as a funky hatch. It’s not as con­fronting as some In­finiti de­signs but still has per­son­al­ity.
