Infiniti to Debut New G in Geneva

Next-generation Infiniti will be "much sportier and more dynamic than the current car".

Striving for market share in a highly competitive market, the Infiniti G series has some tough rivals on its hands. The BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, Lexus IS, Acura TL and new Cadillac ATS (to name just a few) all compete for the same buyers. So in an effort to make its entry a more compelling one, Infiniti is preparing to launch an all-new G at the Geneva Motor Show next March. Benefitting from a collaboration between Renault-Nissan and Daimler, the new G could borrow a platform from Mercedes.

It is almost certain to use the German automaker's engines, tipped to include both gasoline and diesel-burning engines in four and six cylinders right from launch. The current G37 packs a thirsty 3.7-liter V6. While a smaller 2.5-liter V6 was offered for a time, as it remains in its Japanese-market counterpart, the Nissan Skyline (not to be confused with the GT-R that shared its underpinnings in previous incarnations), the smaller engine was discontinued in North America last year. Infiniti currently offers the G37 in sedan, coupe and convertible body-styles, and is likely to follow down the same road with its replacement.
