Last night Infiniti revealed the facelifted G37 sedan along with its new 2011 M sedan at a reception in Beverly Hills. We’ve already seen the Infiniti M as the Nissan Fuga at the Tokyo show in October, but the G sedan was a bit of a surprise.
Infiniti slightly changed the design of the G37 sedan’s front end and upgraded the interior to keep its best-selling product fresh. New headlights, grille, and relocated fog lights are about the extent of the visual changes for the car. Inside, Infiniti is offering a new navigation unit and some changes in trim colors. Overall the car looks very similar to the 2009 G37 sedan and it will be pretty difficult to tell if the G37 you are looking at in the wild is a 2009 or 2010.
In other Infiniti news, company officials confirmed there will be a QX replacement coming for the summer of 2010, a hybrid version of the 2011 Infiniti M will arrive one year after the M37 and M56, and Infiniti is still working on its electric vehicle. Infiniti is also considering expanding to the Central and South American markets at some point in the future.
It’s a bit funny that Infiniti threw a party in Beverly Hills during the Los Angeles auto show but doesn’t have any cars on the show floor. Nissan and Infiniti were among the first brands to cut major auto shows in an effort to preserve cash during the recession.
