Infiniti is the upscale division Nissan launched in 1989 in response to Toyota's Lexus and Honda's Acura brands. Infiniti took the bold step of renaming their entire product line for the 2014 model year. Car lines like the G and M became Q50 (G sedan), Q60 (G coupe) and Q70. SUVs and crossovers like the JX, FX, and QX56 became the QX60 and QX70, and QX80.
