Infiniti Cars

Infiniti is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Nissan

While most of its products bear a close resemblance to mainstream Nissan production, the Infiniti line achieves its premium status by infusing its SUV and cars with spirited performance and additional luxury content.

Models

The first car in this brand was released in 1989 and back then, its purpose was to create luxury vehicles for the North American market that would not otherwise fit with Nissan’s mainstream production and became its own separate brand in Australia in 2012. This is the same model Toyota used for the creation and marketing of Lexus, and Honda for Acura. In its first model year, Infiniti released two vehicles, the M30 coupe and convertible and the Q45 sedan. The M30 was powered by the VG30E 162 HP engine and automatic transmission while the Q45 featured a 278 hp V8 engine four wheel steering and an active suspension system. The Q45’s features made it competitive in the full sized luxury car segment against the Cadillac Fleetwood, the BMW 7 series, Mercedes S-Class and the Jaguar XJ. All popular business car leasing choices.

In 1991, Infiniti released the G20, a compact, entry-level car based on the Nissan Primera. This was followed by the j30, a four-door coupe J30 which was powered by a singe VG30DE 210 hp engine. The J30 was designated to be the north American generation Nissan Leopard. The J30 was replaced by the second generation JDM Nissan Cefiro in 1996, followed by the QX4, which was released in 1997. The car features premium accommodations to the Nissan pathfinder.

In the 2000’s Infiniti produced a number of luxury vehicles featuring massive improvements in luxury, performance and aesthetics to counter the reduced desirability of Infiniti’s occasioned by the Japanese asset price bubble. The most successful models were the G35 and the sports-tuned FX45. These were followed up by the QX56 in 2004.

Infiniti’s M35/M45 garnered widespread acclaim from automotive experts, winning “Car and Driver’s” eight car comparison test before being named the best luxury Sedan by “Consumer Reports.” The brand marked its introduction to the European market with the release on four models; the Infiniti FX37, and FX50 performance SUV’S, the G37 coupe and EX37 crossover.

Buying a large SUV like the QX can be an expensive way to go – why notlease an Infiniti QX instead.
