ROLLE, SWITZERLAND – Nov 6, 2012: The expansion of the Japanese performance automotive brand continues in the UK with the opening of its next Infiniti centre based in Hull. This opening represents the seventh Infiniti centre in the UK with more on the way.

Maintaining the Infiniti principles of offering the highest standards of customer care within a contemporary and luxurious environment Infiniti Centre Hull officially opens its doors with a VIP, invitation only, celebratory evening on the 8th November.

Infiniti Centre Hull, situated in the Priory Way complex just off of the A63 and close to the Humber Bridge, has been completely refurbished to meet all the requirements that have made Infiniti's unique retail environment such a worldwide success. The Centre is designed to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere at odds with most people's idea of a car dealership. The latest Infiniti Centre is more in the style of a top boutique hotel than a car showroom.

The Centre is operated by the family run business of the Humberside Motor Group with Stephen Smith at the helm. Stephen commented: "Infiniti is still a new and exciting brand to the UK and I am very pleased to be one of the first centres to be able to supply these luxury performance vehicles. Although they are still a comparatively rare sight on our roads, some people like to stand out from the crowd and the Infiniti range allows our customers to do just that."

Stephen continued; "It is not only the cars that make us stand out from the crowd, when you first walk into the Centre you will be greeted with five star hospitality, very different from any other premium brand and something we believe our customers should expect and enjoy."

The Hull Centre will display and can arrange test drives from the growing range of Infiniti vehicles starting from the SUVs of the EX and FX, to the luxury M saloons, plus three variations of G; Roadster, Coupe and Saloon. Most models are available with V6 petrol and diesel engines (no diesel on G models) but the M also has a petrol hybrid powertrain which produces as little as 159g/km of CO2, helping to keep tax bills low, but is recognised by Guinness World Records as the fastest accelerating hybrid in the world. The FX also comes with a 5.0 V8 petrol engine for the more performance-driven enthusiasts.
