    Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz are working on a new vehicle architecture that will underpin four new vehicles, including a new crossover. This information comes courtesy of Johan de Nysschen, the head of Infiniti who was speaking to Bloomberg at the Detroit Auto Show. de Nysschen did not talk about whether the new architecture will be front/all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, and how many of those new vehicles would be Infiniti and/or Mercedes-Benz. de Nysschen did say is that first model with this new architecture will appear in 2017.

    Let the Speculation Begin. :D

    I can see this as a compact luxury class model for the two companies with FWD/AWD options. A competitor for Infiniti to compete against Buick and MB to fight against Cadillac once they have an Encore class version of a CUV.
