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.
New or Significantly Altered Models
After skipping the 2016 model year, the Q60 coupe returns as an all-new vehicle for the 2017 model year. The model range mirrors that of the Q50 sedan with both RWD and AWD offerings. Engine choices include a 2.0l turbocharged four-cylinder (208-bhp) and a 3.0l turbocharged V6 (300-bhp). A Red Sport 400 model sits at the top of the range powered by a 400-bhp turbo V6.
The QX30 is a new global compact crossover vehicle from Infiniti. U.S. versions are offered with a standard 208-bhp, 2.0l turbocharged four-cylinder and 7-speed sequential manual. The QX30 is related to the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.
