The standard engine is the 1.6-litre 4-cylinder motor. Standard options in the Q30 include power steering, power windows, central locking, leather interior, power front seats, alloy wheels, sunroof, automatic headlamps, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, power tilt and telescopic wheel, Bose stereo, infotainment system with touch screen, power mirrors, stability control, intelligent keyless entry and start and an advanced front-side-curtain 7-airbag system. Other safety features include lane departure warning, front collision warning and stop, ABS and brake assist.
