    Infiniti Previews Next Q70 with Q Inspiration Concept

    Infinti has pulled the wraps off the Q Inspiration Concept, which the company says previews its next midsize car. In other words, the Q70.

    The Q Inspiration shows Infiniti's "new form language" design that will likely spread throughout its lineup. The design takes the current large grill and enlarges even more. It also shows more of a coupe like greenhouse with a continuous taillight.*

    Infiniti says the interior was inspired by minimalism and to be human-centric. While the material design does seem to be minimal, the number of screens for is far from minimal.*

    The concept is powered by Infiniti's VC-Turbo, which combines a gasoline engine with turbochargers to have the same power and efficiency of a hybrid or diesel engine.

    ProPilot also is shown on the concept, which is Infiniti's next level of autonomous vehicle system.*

    Look for a production version of the Q Inspiration to debut in the next two years.

    What I find weird is that, as cars become more efficient, they need less openings for cooling, not more. And, BEVs need nearly none. Yet, the trend in terms of styling is huge grills -- most of which will be blocked off. Seems like a weird affectation. At first, one could argue it created styling differentiation. But, when everyone is doing it -- what's the point? Stylists -- come up with a more honest way to create a recognizable 'face'!!

    I agree with you on that and even with gas powered engines the 86 Taurus and Sable proved you didn't need much of a grill anyway.
