The Fuga (Japanese: 日産・フーガ) is a full-size luxury sedan produced by Nissan of Japan since October 2004. It is built on a wider, stretched wheelbase version of the Nissan FM platform. After the Nissan Cima and Nissan President were discontinued in August 2010, the Fuga became Nissan's flagship vehicle. In North America and Europe, the Fuga is sold as the second and third-generation Infiniti M, where it has been the flagship of the Infiniti luxury division of Nissan since 2006.
First shown as the Fuga Concept at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show, the Fuga is a replacement for the long running Nissan Cedric and Nissan Gloria series of cars. The name of the vehicle was inspired by the fugue, a composition musical form. The name Fuga was chosen to suggest that the long, storied histories of the Cedric, Gloria, Cima, and President are being combined into a new vehicle that continues to provide the prestige and heritage of those vehicles. The last model code for the Cedric and Gloria was Y34, and the last model code for the Cima was F50, with the President as PGF50. Two versions of the smaller Y34 (Cedric & Gloria) and the larger F50 (Cima & President) platforms were offered due to Nissan's dual sales channels in Japan, called (Japanese: Nissan Blue Stage) and (Japanese: Nissan Red Stage), where Blue Stage sold traditional Nissan products and Red Stage sold former Prince products like the Nissan Skyline, the Gloria, the Nissan Laurel and the Nissan Auster.
