Infiniti eyes off the Germans with new four-door coupe concept.
The Japanese luxury brand has released the first image of its newest concept vehicle, following on from a very sneaky teaser image of the vehicle's nose last month. This time the premium Japanese auto maker has shown off a full rear photo of its Q Inspiration Concept car ahead of its debut.
Due to be fully unveiled at the 2018 North American Auto Show in Detroit on January 15, the sedan concept is the first car to preview the brand’s latest design language that will also herald a new range of drivetrains to enter the Nissan-owned brand's stable.
The sedan features an extensive glasshouse, which incorporates a large panoramic sunroof that stretches from the front windshield to the boot, among plenty of curvaceous sheet metal. At the rear are thin rear taillights that mimic the teased front headlights and there's a lack of any door handles all-round.
In a current wave of two-door coupes and SUVs, Infiniti says its sedan and new drivetrains revolutionise the segment.
“We aim to take traditional sedan architecture to its next stage of evolution,” said Karim Habib, Infiniti executive design director.
“The Q Inspiration offers an alternative form; something more flowing in appearance and muscular in stance, with an unusually long and balanced cabin. Experimenting with new proportions in an established segment with the arrival of smarter, compact powertrains, the Q Inspiration features a shorter hood and elongated body, with all the benefits to interior wellbeing, comfort and space that this layout entails.”
All details will be revealed at the 2018 Detroit motor show this month.
