21 October 2009

Nissan has revealed its new Fuga luxury saloon.

The car is essentially the Japanese version of the Infiniti M saloon, which will go on sale in the US and Europe next year.

See the hi-res Nissan Fuga picture gallery

A 2.5-litre V6 and a 3.7-litre V6 will be available at launch, while a hybrid version will be offered as well from autumn 2010.

Inside, it gets “premium semi-aniline leather” seats, soft-touch trim, and wood-grain and chrome detailing.

Tech features include double piston shock absorbers, which improve ride and handling by increasing oil flow inside the shock absorber to reduce vibration from road undulations and absorb minor road imperfections.

Well curiosity got the better of me so I looked it up, it comes from the Italian fuga, which in turn comes from Latin, also fuga, which is itself related to both fugere (‘to flee’) and fugare, (‘to chase’).

In a related story they plan on building a large family van in Detroit suitable for soccer moms called the "Mother Fuga".

Somehow I find this very retro looking . Like an early fifties Healey ( and I don't mean Austin-Healey)

    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
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
