Infiniti doesn’t offer a diesel engine in North America, but not having one in Europe is tantamount to brand suicide. The first oil-burner from Nissan’s premium brand will be the FX30d GT, retailing for £45,150, or roughly $67,000. For another£2,000 ($3000), buyers can upgrade to the FX30d S, which is the “sportier” trim level. Both FX models come with all the goodies, but their Lane Departure Warning System is a first for the European market.

After the FX diesel rollout, Infiniti’s smaller EX crossover is next in line, but details are still scarce on the diminutive diesel.
