Today at the 2012 L.A. Auto Show, Infiniti announced that an all new sports sedan will be shown off at the upcoming North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

With recent updates to the BMW 3-series and the introduction of the Cadillac ATS, the Infiniti G has been upstaged, so it is possible that the car Infiniti is talking about is the new G. It seems likely, since the last time the G sedan was updated was back in 2009 as a refresh of the 2006 G35.

Thanks to a recent partnership with Mercedes-Benz, it is possible that the new Infiniti will sport a powerplant from the German automaker. Europeans can also expect a diesel model to head their way as well.

The new G sedan is expected to show off new styling cues sourced from the now dead Emerg-E concept car.
