The first images of the mid-engined Infiniti Emerg-e have been leaked online
4 March 2012

The first images of the Infiniti Emerg-e have been leaked online ahead of the sports car concept’s official unveiling at the Geneva motor show. The imposing, rear-drive, two-seat performance car features wide flanks, sculpted cooling ducts (including on the roof) and large turbine-effect alloy wheels with low-profile tyres.

The concept’s front-end gets the marque’s familiar chrome-rimmed grille design and the integrated bumper features a splitter. The headlight cluster includes LED daytime running lights.

The Emerg-e’s heavily sculpted bonnet design continues along the concept’s sides and at the rear, and the sleek light clusters have been pushed to the car’s flanks to accentuate the car’s width.

Most striking is the Emerg-e’s glass roof, which tapers over the engine bay to expose the motor. Inside, the concept gets sculpted leather seats, blue LED lighting and a unique centre console design.

The Emerg-e is the first mid-engined car from Infiniti. It follows the 600bhp hybrid Infiniti Essence concept seen at Geneva in 2009 and the front-drive Etherea hatchback concept that was shown at the Swiss show last year.

The manufacturer is also plotting an all-electric saloon that is expected to break cover at the New York motor show in early April.

Like the styling but it's of limited relevance - typically any production car will look comparatively mundane. The name is an unfortunate marketing Emerg-ency. Give over with the mid-word punctuation (woops).

Could be... But I'm sure it will be slower than the in-house GT-R, and three or four times as expensive.

  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona

    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
