Infiniti will outsell Cadillac this year worldwide, but still lags the Germans and even Lexus in country-club prestige.
This is the first look at the car Infiniti hopes to take that next step with — a four-seat luxury hatchback called the Q80 Inspiration that heralds a more aggressive play for the world's wealth.
It's always hard to get a sense of scale from a concept car, especially with only the single photo released by Infiniti ahead of the car's unveiing next week at the Paris Motor Show.
Trust us, it's big; at a total length of 198.9 inches, its about seven short of a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but wider by five inches. The roof is entirely lightweight acoustic glass, and Infiniti says the interior is a four-person cockpit with each seat swathed in various technological wonders.
