Love Mercedes-Benz but can’t afford one? Drawn to Infiniti’s new design language but don’t love the drive? The 2017 Infiniti Q30 may be just what you need. With the hardware supplied by Mercedes-Benz and the software provided by Infiniti, the 2017 Infiniti Q30 hits a sweet spot that has been hard to scratch for many other automakers. Infiniti calls it an active compact and it occupies the space somewhere between a small SUV and a hatchback, and if it comes in at a reasonable price, it may just be the ultimate alternative to a pricey Benz.
