Detroit 2018: The Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept Reminds Us Of A Few Other Cars

All set to make its debut at the upcoming 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit later this month, Infiniti has released the first image of the Q Inspiration Concept.

Featuring an elongated silhouette of a fastback similar to the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7, the Infiniti Q Inspiration which represents the next step in Infiniti’s design, looks like it is going to be a four-door coupe when it enters production in the future.   

"We aim to take traditional sedan architecture to its next stage of evolution. The Q Inspiration offers an alternative form; something more flowing in appearance and muscular in stance with an unusually long and balanced cabin,” said Karim Habib, Infiniti’s executive design director.

Karim was also the former chief designer at BMW before joining Infiniti in July 2017.

“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."

From what we can see, the concept features frameless doors, a panoramic glass roof, large sporty wheel design, sleek tail lights that run across the rear and a pair of side air vents that look very similar to the ones on the current BMW 5-Series and 7-Series.

That being said, the Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept will be revealed in Detroit on January 15, 2018.
