The Fuga show car on the Nissan stand at the Tokyo
Motor Show will be the new Infiniti M45, sources confirm. The sporty-looking
sedan shares a platform with the Infiniti G35 and FX45 and the Nissan 350Z.
All-wheel-drive will be an option and the 4.5-liter V-8 should be standard.
sporty exterior and an interior boasting roominess
One element contributing to the car's sporty form is the gentle line traced by the high roof that allows outstanding ease of entry/exit. Many new design techniques were utilized for Fuga, including the creation of a beautiful flowing form by applying hairline-finished aluminum from the roof line to the trunk lid.
Positioning the tires at the four corners of the body works in concert with the large-diameter aluminum wheels to project a powerful image with a low center of gravity for superb driving performance. The lamps at both the front and rear are styled in an L-shape with two round rings on the inside, a technique that enhances the car's sporty, premium-quality atmosphere.
Fuga boasts interior spaciousness surpassing all other sedans in this class anywhere in the world. Even with 180-cm-tall occupants in both the front and rear seats, there is still plenty of room for the rear-seat passengers to stretch out their legs in relaxed comfort.
2. A new luxury sedan interior executed in a "Japanese modern" theme
The basic color of the interior is pale green, which is coordinated with the subdued dark grayish green body color. The T-shaped center console and the door trim are decorated with unvarnished genuine wood of a white cypress color. This combines with the glossy lacquer-like painted wood panels to express the bold contrast of white and jet black, reflecting Japanese aesthetics. Formed with an integrated cushion and seatback, the seats are bathed in soft indirect light coming through the "Japanese paper-covered taste" shade of glass roof during day time and gentle indirect light through the side of roof console at night.
3. Superb driving performance delivered by the FM Package
Fuga also features various driving support technologies, including Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), a lane-keeping support system and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). It also adopts Nissan's Intelligent Brake Assist, which was first introduced on the facelifted March released in August this year, and Brake-operated Pre-crash Seatbelts in the front seats, among other state-of-the-art safety features befitting a luxury car.
4. Cutting-edge IT and telematics technologies
Located in the middle of the center console is the latest interface that embodies Nissan's proposals for a new trend in IT and telematics. Control switches are also mounted on the steering wheel to reduce the driver's workload substantially while providing multifunctionality. In addition, speakers are embedded in the rear-seat head restraints to facilitate the use of videophones in the rear seats, which is expected to be a widespread trend in the future.
