Infiniti's bread-and-butter product is the G-Series but as we've seen it age from a crowd pleaser to an also ran, the Japanese marque knew it was time to give it a proper update.

Though it's not the first time we're seeing the all-new Q50, the 2013 Chicago Auto Show gave the Agents another chance to take a look at it.

In this lighting I have to say it appears that Infiniti did a pretty nice job on this product. Several elements I particularly find attractive on the Q50: 1) I think the creases on the hood, which are integrated into the front grille, is a real nice detail, 2) The sculpted rear fender shoulder line that starts in the middle of the rear doors is a nice touch, and 3) I am digging its proportions — short front/rear overhangs.

For me, the major sticking point is its interior that doesn't seem to grab me.

Otherwise, with reports coming in that it will receive a hybrid variant, a four-cylinder turbocharged motor, plus a diesel abroad, it could be a competitive product out of the gate.

Really though it's just a shame Infiniti didn't update the six-cylinder powerplant that's carried over from the G37. Seems like a missed opportunity to me.
