Infiniti QX30 Sport — Stylish and aggressive

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Infiniti set out years ago to be the styling leader as well as the performance champion in the luxury crossover segment with the 2003 FX. Today, in the rapidly growing small luxury crossover segment, Infiniti adds the 2018 QX30 to the styling/performance mix.

Infiniti Q60 Red Sport — Sexy performance

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Performance has returned to the Infiniti brand under the new Red Sport name in the popular compact Q50 sedan and Q60 coupe offering the same spirited driving opportunity available in the horsepower-infused BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupes. The name to remember when shopping an entry luxury coupe is Q60 Red Sport 400.

2017 Infiniti Q50



PHOENIX — The Q50 is a compact entry-level luxury sedan and Infiniti’s best-selling vehicle. Introduced for the 2013 model year, it replaced the popular Infiniti G37 sedan. We weren’t fond of the new Q50 when it was introduced, and felt Infiniti took a step backward from both the G37 it replaced and competitors in the segment like Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE and Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans.

PHOENIX — The Infiniti QX30 is yet the latest all-new vehicle to enter the heavily populated and growing entry-level compact luxury crossover utility vehicle segment, joining Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, to name a few. Infiniti is Nissan’s luxury brand and, for the most part, builds quite excellent vehicles. Stylistically, Infinitis have always had more visual appeal than competitors from Acura and Lexus. But I’ve never found them particularly thrilling to drive. More about that in a bit.

2017 Infiniti QX30



INDIANAPOLIS — The QX30 is a stylish little Infiniti crossover. Or, is it?  Beneath the flowing chiseled bodywork are the bones and powertrain of the Mercedes-Benz GLA. That’s a good start, because despite a few quirks and princely price tag, it’s a nice little Infinedes.

PHOENIX — With just five percent of the automotive market share, two-door coupe models are considered objects of desire rather than a vehicle that fills a mainstream transportation need. People buy them because they want one not because they are necessarily a practical choice. And visually, the new Infiniti Q60 is not only an object of desire it’s also absolutely gorgeous inside and out.

Infiniti QX60 — Family friendly luxury crossover

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The window sticker on the 2016 Infiniti QX60 proclaims it is "built for families, designed for drivers." Infiniti has definitely got the family part down. The QX60 is a very attractive three-row crossover with a useable third-row seat and with numerous available kid-friendly features. The "drivers" part not so much. If you are looking for a performance and handling machine in the image of BMW or Audi, best to check out the X5 or the Q7.

2016 Infiniti Q50



SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Leaving its best-selling model basically untouched for 2015, product planners made some sweeping changes to the Infiniti Q50’s powertrain elements for 2016. Even Q50 owners would be hard pressed to identify which is which when faced with a 2015 and a 2016 parked side by side, but the differences are striking when you goose the accelerator.

Infiniti QX50 — Now with more passenger space

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

It is said family responsibilities have mandated the need for more useable cargo space even if you love sport sedans. The conflict between buying what the family really needs and what you want can be excruciating.

It wasn't that long ago that the 2015 Infiniti QX80 was named the highest ranked Large Premium SUV in the annual J.D. Power U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study.
