Infiniti

Infiniti is the luxury division of Nissan, one of the biggest Japanese manufacturers and part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. Infiniti was founded in 1989, mainly to cater to North American customers looking for the reliability of a run-of-the-mill Nissan in a more up-market package. However, since then, Infiniti has expanded to become a global brand and it currently makes cars in Japan, China, and the U.K. Infiniti's portfolio is quite extensive with three sedans, one coupé, and four crossover SUVs currently available in the U.S. Infiniti announced that it will become an electric company with the entirety of its lineup being hybrid or electric by 2021.

What is the Cheapest Infiniti?

The cheapest Infiniti is the QX30 compact crossover with a starting price of $30,250 without any added fees and taxes. That’s the price of the QX30 Pure trim level that comes with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-pot that puts out 208 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque between 1,200 and 4,400 rpm. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends all of the power to the front wheels. There’s a $5,400 price gap in Infiniti’s range before you get to the second least expensive model, namely the $35,650 Q50. The only coupé Infiniti currently sales starts from $40,850.

What is the Sportiest Infiniti?

The sportiest Infiniti is the Q60 two-door coupé in its top trim level, Sport 400. The Q60 Sport 400 features a 400 horsepower, 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 under the hood. You can have it with either RWD or all AWD (for an extra $2,000 up from the $55,000 MSRP of the RWD version). The V-6 produces 350 torques that can make the P275/30R20 rear tires squeal if your foot is heavy enough on the loud pedal. The Q50 compact sedan can also be had with this potent V-6 engine as it’s available on the top-of-the-line Red Sport 400 (and the Red Sport 400 AWD) trim level and, actually, the sedan is cheaper than the coupé with a $51,350 sticker price for the RWD version (and the same $2,000 premium if you want AWD).

What is the Most Popular Infiniti?

The most popular Infiniti is the QX60 mid-size luxury crossover SUV. It’s no surprise that the most popular car from Nissan’s luxury division is an SUV but what may be unexpected is that the QX60 is the second-largest SUV on offer, costing $11,100 more than the compact QX30 that’s built in the U.K. Last year, Infiniti sold a total of 149,280 automobiles, down by 2.7% compared to 2017, when it sold 153,415 units. The QX60 established itself as the clear customer favorite in Infiniti’s lineup with 47,370 units dispatched in 2018, up by almost 7,000 units compared to 2017. To put it into perspective, the company’s runner-up best-selling car, the Q50 compact sedan, was sold in just 334,763 units while little under 26,000 QX50s found new customers in the U.S. in 2018.

What is the Most Expensive Infiniti?

The most expensive Infiniti is the QX80, the company’s flagship SUV. The QX80 is a $65,500 full-size, seven-seater, luxury SUV that’s a whole $13,600 more expensive than anything else that Infiniti has to offer. While it may seem cheap when you think that a Lincoln Navigator, one of the most popular full-size SUVs in the U.S., starts from $74,500, it’s still significantly more expensive than the next QX60 that starts from $44,350.

What is the Fastest Infiniti?

The fastest Infiniti is the Q60 Red Sport 400. It can go from naught to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds thanks to the 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 that makes 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is limited at about 150 mph but that’s respectable for a car that weighs over 3,700 pounds - which is actually more than the dry weight of the sportiest Q50 that also sports the same 400 horsepower engine under the hood. That one can reach 60 mph in about 4.9 seconds, although depending on the setup, you could probably match or even beat the time of the Q60 Red Sport 400.

Are Infiniti Cars Reliable?

Infiniti cars are reliable, as you can expect since they’re based on Nissan underpinnings and share components with Nissan models. J.D. Power announced in its 2018 U.S. Initial Quality Study that Infiniti was among the brands that improved over the course of 2018 in comparison to the 2017 statistics, with owners reporting 15 fewer problems per 100 cars. Having said that, older models face electronics-related issues and some customers complain about the quality of the materials used inside and the fact that some of them age prematurely compared to the materials found in other luxury brands that are comparable in terms of price.
