Official Infiniti Q55 Wagon Cross Over Thread

Infiniti Q50 Estate Rendered




Infiniti announced a new naming system in December last year. This uses Q for the sedans and coupes and SX fro crossovers and SUVs. The first new model to use this system is the Q50 sports sedan unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

This replaces the old G sedan and launches itself into a very competitive market, filled with German warriors packed with the latest compact car technology. Diesels are the first item on Infiniti's agenda, as the Q50 will be once again shown in March, this time in Geneva and sporting a turbo diesel engine from Mercedes.

However, while they have managed to create a fresh design, and are getting ready to secure secure diesel and turbo petrol engines from Mercedes, two quarters of a good car doesn't make a whole.

We wondered what an all-important wagon or estate version of the Q50 would look like, and graphics manipulator Theophilus Chin came to the rescue with a rendered Q50 estate he calls the Q55. Mind you, he's also produced a stunner of a coupe about a week ago, based on the same new Infiniti design lines.
Would you guys be interested in this Inifniti Q55 Cross over / wagon if it ever makes it to production in North America?

I've always been a fan of station wagons but never made it in stone with buy one. i can't recall premium wagons ever being a popular in north america. Europe though, is a popular market for such cars and many premium car makers sell station wagon variants of their popular cars in European auto market. It' seems like ever premium automaker has this up their sleeve but just how effective will it be in the US.

Another competitor has the same idea and may be in the works at the moment. Mercedes is playing with the same idea with their not even release entry level compact the Mercedes CLA. Here is another rendering to have a look at.

I can't see a trend for wagons in the next couple years to come back with a fight. The European automakers are well know for this in the Euro marker and plan on making a foot print herNorth America but will they take the bait. I don't know about you guys but i certainly don't mind. It meets the criteria of transporting car seats and stroller while allowing me to believe I'm driving a sports car again.

If you look back at the wagons on the market in the past you can see why they failed. Ugly looks and designs drove them off.

It's alright but the design comparing it to the rest of the competitors i'd say this one is the ugly duckling. It reminds me a stretched Infiniti JX.

We already have station wagons here. They are just a little taller with a greater propensity to roll over. Come winter I see them upside down in a ditch all of the time.
But you can "sit up higher".
