With the compact, variable-compression, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, designers have shortened the hood line.

Infiniti claims its new turbo four-cylinder produces V6 power with the efficiency of a turbo diesel four-banger.

Even though the concept has a midsize footprint, interior space is on par with some larger luxury sedans, with a floating center console and rear flat floor providing maximum legroom.

Pillar-less suicide back doors and low sills make it easy to get in and out.

A minimalist approach is used for the four-seat interior to not distract drivers from driving. It's designed to be a relaxed, airy environment, trimmed with leather and matte wood.
