Question My 5th Infiniti QX30 Malbec or Obsidian? & Q's

Huge Infiniti fan....I've had the G37, EX35, FX35, M37......and impatiently waiting for the QX30.

It drives me insane will all the hype Infiniti does NOT show all the colors on actual cars. Most notably, white, obsidian black and malbec black. I'm biased to black.....and interested in malbec. If I go back and look at malbec (other years of Infiniti) they all look different. If anyone finds a picture of the QX30 in malbec black.....PLEASE post it!

I've seen the white and obsidian on eu websites, but still no malbec.

PS I was told by a dealer that 2018 QX30 will have their button entry & push button start (vs MB key). BUMMER for me ...
PSS Does the "Push Button" Park bother anybody? Your Park position is now Reverse. An accident waiting to happen??

Thank you!

Just to update...I did see the white on Infiniti News thread too (after seeing it on a EU website).

White is what i'll be going for since to me that looks the best out of all. This design really goes with white and you know what they say about a car that looks good in white!

Ultimately you'll want to see these in person, best way to confirm the color you want.

Malbec is a color you need to see in person - in the daytime. It looks different on each car because each has different 'lines'. If you look at a Q50 in Malbec, you'll get a good idea of how it will look on a QX30 though.

Unhappy To see Malbec......

Unfortunately, no dealership has ordered the malbec for their lot. All I have is the book swatch (which I posted on this site) but I'm still unsure....

I saw the Malbec this past Saturday. It looks pretty dark walking up to it, but in the sun different shades of purple and some dark blue tints. A lot depends on the viewing angle and the sun. There is also way too much metal flake in the paint. The paint chip in the brochure is not even close with this color.
