So I'm watching the flash video for this car at Infiniti website, and I have to say the interior seems really quite nice with a lot of attention to details. But what really caught my eyes was this line.

"Direct Adaptive Steering - Control. Precision. Adaptability. Handling’s triple-crown. Now, after over ten years of research and development, it is firmly within reach. This world's first system uses electronics to streamline the steering mechanism for a more precise feeling behind the wheel. Over rough or uneven roads, this moderates the need for constant, subtle adjustment, imparting a commanding feeling of stability while helping shield the driver from excessive road vibrations."

I don't know the details, but this sounds like an EPS that actively tries to suppress road feel, as if it doesn't already do it by nature. I admit it's hard to tell much from this one paragraph, but this sounds like something to watch out for as the reviews start to come in.
