Infiniti will return to a four-crossover lineup in the near future, based on our analysis of the dimensions of the company's latest CUV concept.
Infiniti is previewing a new crossover concept called the QX Sport Inspiration, slated to debut later this month at the Beijing Motor Show with styling derived from the Q60 coupe concept.
As Infiniti continues its attempts at making inroads in the European market, it's showing off a sharper-looking version of its QX70 crossover. Much as it does in the US market, the CUV, formerly known as the FX, is adding an S Design trim.
UPDATE: Infiniti offers a similar package in North America, introduced on the QX70 3.7 as the Sport Package along with the MY2015 updates rolled out a few months ago.
QX70 was the only application for the 5.0L, making it a tough sell in the boardroom.
The Infiniti FX, soon to be renamed QX70 thanks to the Japanese brand's convoluted naming scheme, is currently in the midst of its second-generation. And while we like the compact, sporty crossover's driving character a lot, it lacks the "utility" part of the CUV moniker. That lack of cabin space will be addressed in the future, though.
With the exception of the G37, customers walking into Infiniti showrooms this summer are going to see a bunch of different names pop up as the automaker switches to its new Q-for-car and QX-for-crossover/SUV naming convention for 2014. The first of these renamed models are the 2014 QX60 (which replaces the JX) starting at $41,550* and the 2014 QX70 (which replaces the FX) priced at $44,950* (*prices do not include $995 for destination), and both are on sale now.
