Latest spy pictures of the next-generation BMW 3 Series-rivalling Infiniti G37

This is the new Infiniti G37, which is set to take on the likes of the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class from next year.

The G37 is expected to be launched at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2013 in US spec, and then at the Geneva Motor Show two months later, where we’ll get to see the diesel models for the first time.

On the subject of powertrains, the G37 is expected to get Mercedes engines as part of the Daimler-Renault-Nissan alliance.

We expect the new G37 to be offered with the 1.8-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol, and 2.1-litre four-cylinder and 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel engines already found in the current Mercedes C-Class.

As for looks, the Infiniti G37 is expected to draw heavily on Infiniti’s recent concept cars, which is no bad thing. While the impressive Emerg-e concept won’t be built, its styling, and particularly its swoopy interior, are said to have a strong influence on the new G37’s design.

The car in our pictures is the G37 saloon, but a coupe and convertible are expected to join the line-up. A hybrid model is also expected, to compliment the Infiniti M35h, which competes with the Mercedes E300 Bluetec.
