Europeans require better quality for their cars, that’s for sure. And even if Infiniti has a real success, they need to adjust on the European market if they want to have the same success in there.

There will be big differences between American and European models when the brand debuts in October in nine European markets.

Those push-button switches in the wood-grain consoles? Gone — replaced by knobs that are closer to what Mercedes or BMW customers in Europe would expect to see.

The European models will have new heated-seat systems, new stabilizers and bigger brakes than their American cousins. A new seven-speed automatic transmission will be offered. Windshield wipers will have more powerful arms, and the window seals will be heavier.

Engineers are making 300 to 500 changes per car to prepare for the introduction.
