Infiniti has released the first pic of its new Q Inspiration Concept ahead of its debut at the Detroit motor show.

The car represents a new direction in design and looks, dare we say – quite Jaguaresque?

Infiniti says the car is the first manifestation of its new form language for an era of advanced powertrains and presents a design vision for vehicles in this segment.

The exterior of Q Inspiration features clear and concise lines and eschews classical sedan forms with its elongated silhouette.

“We aim to take traditional sedan architecture to its next stage of evolution,” design director, Karim Habib, said.

“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.”

The Q Inspiration Concept will be revealed in Detroit on January 15.

Great site, a great initiative with great writers, love it. But all is not perfect……If you want people to comment/engage more, make it easier to comment e.g. need to lift the comment dialogue box up above the thumbnails and the bio instead of having to hunt for it. Plus make it consistently available for every story and hide most of the comments except the first 4 say, with a “see more comments” button (FB manages that better). Know it’s called cars4starters but a Glenn Miller story? Finally, subbing – headline in the Ralph Nadar(sic) story?????
