I don’t know that I necessarily agree with Michael Schulz’s characterisation of Berlin as ‘ugly’ — I mean, it’s not exactly a total dump like [readers should insert their own urban bête noire here, as we don’t want the backlash], is it? Still, it’s not hard see what he means when he says the German capital and the new Infiniti Q30 provide a pleasant contrast, the former uncompromising and sometimes wilfully unbeautiful, the latter a thing of flexed curves, thoughtful ergonomics, comfort, style.
As part of their promo for the new model, Infiniti gave Schulz The Seeker, programmed to lead him across town to a secret location where a Q30 had been left. Navigating the city he’s already known for documenting on his über-popular Instagram feed (wait for it) Berlinstagram, Michael’s journey neatly expressed how the car aims to blend sympathetically into its environment.
