The first Infiniti diesel model in the company’s 20-year history will cost from £45,150.

The Infiniti FX30d is available to order now ahead of the first deliveries in July. An EX30d will follow later in the summer.

The FX0d is powered by a 235bhp, 406lb ft direct-injection 3.0-litre V6 diesel unit that helps the car achieve CO2 emissions of 238g/km and combined fuel consumption of 31.4mpg. The FX30d can get from 0-62mph in 8.3sec.

Four trim levels are offered: GT, GT Premium, S and S Premium.

Speaking at the launch of the diesel models at the Geneva motor show in March, Infiniti’s European vice-president Jim Wright said a diesel engine was a must if the firm was to establish itself in Europe.

“We were aware from the outset that for Infiniti to offer a complete range a powerful diesel engine was a must, especially in the European premium SUV market where diesel represents the bulk of sector sales,” he said.

I have to agree with others,

I have to agree with others, I much prefer the esthetics of the model to the right of the car.

But, in diesels you look at the Torque...............which the Infiniti has 550Nm. The BMW has nowhere near that!
That was based on old BMW figures from their engines 3 years ago: Infiniti FX0d: 235bhp, 406lbft, 31.4mpg, 238g of CO2 BMW X5 x30d: 245bhp, 398lbft, 38.2mpg, 195g of CO2 BMW X5 x35d: 286bhp, 428lbft, 34mpg, 220g of CO2 BMW X5 x40d: 306bhp, 442lb ft, 37.7mpg, 198g of CO2 All the BMW engines are more powerful and more economical. Importantly all drop below the 225g of CO2 tax threshold, unlike the Infiniti. Only the x30d has less torque, but does have more power. Now, I wouldn't buy the BMW or the Infiniti, but a lot of buyers will look at those figures and go for the BMW as the list prices for those listed is £43k-£47k
