This is an official teaser image of an all-new model that Infiniti will be unveiling at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show next week. The premium brand says that the new car will come with world-first technologies, stand-out design and class-leading interior space. That class should have the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Audi Q5 because we’re expecting it to be the new Infiniti QX50 SUV.

Infiniti says that the new model will see a fresh interpretation of the brand’s “Powerful Elegance” design language, characterised by flowing sculptural lines and strong, muscular proportions. The end result presents a purposeful aura, while hinting at its dynamic capabilities. We’ll see.

“As with all Infinitis, we have been inspired by our desire to drive, expressed with power and artistry. With this all-new model, inspiration comes from striking the perfect balance between lust and logic. At a glance, seamless and sculptural, getting closer to the car reveals an ingenious blend of proportion and space,” said Alfonso Albaisa, senior VP of global design.

What’s shown here is the standard Infiniti grille and the adjoining headlamps, which are squares arranged from big to small – matching what we’ve seen in spyshots. That’s different from the “scales” seen on the concept, but look more elaborate than the simple beam on the just-launched QX80.
