BMW has just launched its X1, Mercedes-Benz is working on a compact SUV based on its next-generation B-Class and even Audi is planning a new Q3 positioned below the Q5 and Q7. Now, Infiniti is reportedly planning a compact SUV of its own.

This computer-generated rendering previews the new compact SUV from Infiniti, revealing similar design traits to the current EX and FX models. Set to go on sale towards the end of 2012, the new model will arrive as a 2013 model and is tipped to be called the DX.

Renault-Nissan’s recent alliance with Daimler means Infiniti now has access to premium platforms from Mercedes-Benz, and as expected the new DX will likely share its platform with the B-Class derived BLK compact SUV.

The powertrain lineup will almost certainly consist of highly-efficient four-cylinder and V-6 engines with direct-injection technology.

Of course, all this remains speculation as Infiniti is yet to reveal that it’s even considering the idea.

  1. I hope that it will have more headroom in the back seat than the EX model.

  2. Is the EX not entry level enuf?

  3. How much smaller than the EX can you get?!

  4. Well since MB is doing a smaller then GLK, rumored to be called the BLK, this is not shocking, and about the EX rumor has it that it will grow in size just a bit to fix the headroom issue

  5. I hope they don't use the name DX...makes me think of ultra-cheap trim level civic...but I can see why they would want to with it coinciding with the alphabet

  6. Idoits!

  7. I may sound Clueless, but how do you computer generate a rendering?

  8. If Infiniti follows suite with it's offerings The DX will likely offer two interior and three exterior combination's and then ship 90% Black/graphite to the shore without an option to special order. Infiniti makes luxury cars, but it is not a luxury car company.
