Overview

Car shoppers who long for Nissan 370Z-like handling with two extra seats, or want the Nissan Armada's full-size SUV capability with more creature comforts, need look no farther than their local Infiniti dealer.

Infiniti is Nissan's upscale brother, offering a line of vehicles characterized by equal parts style and luxury, with a heavy dose of performance mixed in for good measure. The lineup is less robust that that of competitors such as Audi and Lexus, but the models that are available promise to impress. The Infiniti G37 replaced the Infiniti G35 as the brand's entry-level model; variants include the Infiniti G37 sedan, Infiniti G37 coupe, and Infiniti G37 convertible. Move one step up the price ladder and you'll find the Infiniti M, a sedan that's available as the V6-powered Infiniti M35 and the V8-powered Infiniti M45. The full-size Infiniti Q45 sedan was canceled in 2006.

Like its many competitors, Infiniti also builds a line of SUVs and crossovers. The small Infiniti EX35 offers another Japanese alternative to Germany's BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, whereas the heavy-hitting Infiniti QX56 takes on rigs like the Cadillac Escalade. In between resides the Infiniti FX35, or for drivers who crave a V8 rumble, the Infiniti FX50.
