abel Posted: 10/26/2010 2:12am PDT This is a curiously old fashioned looking vehicle, without having the appeal of being 'retro' in styling. Other models in the Infiniti line up, with the exception of the FX, are pretty conservative, but at least more or less passable. This really is a pudding. And it's supposed to be kind of stateoftheartish hybrid. Afraid you'll have to do much better, Nissan, if you wish the Infiniti to be taken seriously in Europe (incl. the UK). Guess what it shows is that anything that's styled with the American market in mind doesn't translate all that well to Europe, whereas, by contrast, Euro styling has a significant following in the American premium market.
