The Nissan Fuga as it is called in the land of the rising sun has another name in the US, the Infinity M which was preview earlier in California at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The Luxurious Nissan Fuga be showcased at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show & it will be available with either the VQ37VHR 3.7-liter V6 or the VQ25HR 2.5-liter V6 powerplant. Among the list of technology Nissan wants to boast about is ‘Double Piston Shock Absorbers' (frequency responsive) that employ a double piston construction to improves handling and ride quality. Next on the line is what Nissan claims as a world-first ‘ECOpedal'. When the eco-pedal system is on, each time the driver steps on the accelerator, a counter push-back control mechanism is activated if the system detects overly zealous throttle work, helping to inform the driver that they could be using more fuel than required. If I could recall this feature was available on the Kia Optima/Lotze that receive a minor facelift not too long ago.
Moving on to the interior which I personally feel is the best looking part of the Fuga actually has pure silver powder applied alongside the premium wood grain panels to yield immaculate mirror finish. Another Nissan's first would be the Climate control system which take cares of pretty much everything from temperature, humidity and even surppress undesired cabin odour. Audiophiles will take note of the Bose® Surround Sound System, which drives 16 speakers with a 14-channel digital amplifier, will ensure premium sound quality.
There will be a hybrid model joining the line up which employs a 3.5-liter V6, high-power Li-ion batteries and a highly efficient one-motor-two-clutch parallel hybrid system solely developed by Nissan, this model generates the fuel consumption of a compact C-segment car. This model will be launched in the Japanese market from 2010 autumn.
