Nissan’s luxury division is a relative newcomer in Europe but they are working hard to make up for the lost time and corner a share of the lucrative market. Its latest offering comes in the form of the EX Black Premium. Based on the diesel-powered EX30d GT Premium trim it is being hailed as one of the world’s first coupé crossovers, the Black Premium delivers everything the EX30d is known for including dashing looks, refinement, luxury and a class-leading 550 Nm of torque.
Apart from the black color the Black edition features graphite leather interior plus 19-inch alloys, a sunroof, aluminum roof rails and a Bose sound system. The vehicle is being offered at about a $5,000 premium over the standard top-spec model. But the vehicle comes with a night for two – fine dining included – at any of the hundreds of luxury hotels associated with the Relais & Château group, as well as membership in its exclusive Club 5C.
Launched simultaneously across all of Infiniti’s European markets, only 150 pieces will be released for Europe. Infiniti is the official automotive partner to Relais & Châteaux and the membership, for two years, in the exclusive Relais & Châteaux Club 5C program that they are offering that you can normally get only through invitation. So that the 150 EX Black Premium owners can fully appreciate what the Club 5C offers, the first sumptuous night is on Infiniti.
