Along with three new Nissan models, the Japanese automaker is also planning to showcase another trio of debuts for its premium Infiniti brand at the LA Auto Show later this year. Included in the list are the Infiniti M Hybrid, the G25 Sedan and the IPL G Coupe.
The M Hybrid uses Infiniti’s 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to an electric motor to get what Infiniti says is V8 power with 4-cylinder fuel economy. Infiniti has promised that its innovative new hybrid powertrain will deliver anywhere from a 60 to 90 percent improvement in fuel economy.
Joining the hybrid will be the G25 Sedan, a new entry-level Infiniti model designed to compete with the Lexus IS250 and Acura TSX. Instead of the G37′s 328-hp V6, the G25 will get a 2.5-liter V6 with 218-hp. For $30,950, a G25 sedan will still give you features like 17-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, leather seats, aluminum interior trim, power seats, and six-speaker stereo. The upscale Journey trim level adds a backup camera, heated front seats and dual zone climate control.
Finally, the IPL (Infiniti Performance Line) G Coupe will be unveiled as more potent and sport-injected version of the G37. Upgrades to the G include a retuned 3.7-liter V6 engine with a high-flow exhaust to bump power slightly to 348-hp. Torque also jumps to 276 ft-lbs. Additional modifications include a retuned suspension, 19-inch wheels with sport brakes and a limited slip differential – plus there’s a unique aero kit, as well as IPL badging for a time of 14.7:1 Other standard features include a special IPL engine cover, a back-up camera and incredible red stitching.
As always, AutoGuide will be on hand with complete coverage of all the LA Auto Show debuts starting November 17th. Until then, see our LA Auto Show preview here.
