Infiniti News

Infiniti is the luxury automotive brand of Nissan and was launched in November 1989 exclusively for the North American market. It has since expanded to 15 countries including most of Europe. All Infiniti models are based on Nissan's FM platform, except for the QX56 full-size SUV, which is based on the F-Alpha truck platform. The brand's logo is an artistic interpretation of Japan's famous Mount Fuji.

    Official: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge portends seriously powerful future sports sedan
    1389618000

    "If we built this car I would expect it to feature over 500 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque." Eau Rouge is a notoriously difficult turn at Belgium's Spa-Francorchamps Circuit that is capable of striking fear into the hearts of the most hardened driver. Naming a car after something so terrifying, therefore, strikes us as a rather poor ...

    Recalls: 2014 Infiniti Q50's novel drive-by-wire steering system recalled
    1387207860

    The gradual replacement of mechanical components in automobiles with electronic systems brings with it definite advantages, but also poses certain potential dangers. Just think of the inevitable problems you've encountered with the computer on which you're reading these words and you'll know what we mean. But a computer crashing isn't as problematic as ...

    Official: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge racing toward Detroit with Red Bull in its veins
    1386259260

    There are several ways an automaker can get into Formula One racing. It can start its own team from scratch (like Toyota did in 2002), it can buy an existing team (like BMW did with Sauber in 2005) or it can supply engines to other teams (as so many manufacturers have done over the years). Infiniti chose another direction and opted to sponsor the ...

    Report: Infiniti Q50 steer-by-wire system took 10 years to develop [w/video]
    1386111480

    Infiniti's Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) is quite a novelty - the system employs no physical connection between the steering wheel and the front wheels under normal circumstances and instead relies on a computer, clutch and steering-angle actuator to guide vehicles down the road with input from the driver. In our First Drive review of a 2014 Infiniti ...

    Report: Infiniti brand will finally make its debut in Japan, but not the name
    1384435740

    Nissan left the automotive media scratching its collective head when it announced that its Infiniti luxury brand would be renaming all of its vehicles, with cars wearing the Q designation and CUVs/SUVs wearing the QX badge. So the G Sedan became the Q50, and the G Coupe became the Q60. The QX56, meanwhile, became the QX80, and the FX crossover became the ...

    Infiniti Red Bull Racing won the 2013 Formula One World Constructors' Championship, and their driver, Sebastian Vettel, won the World Drivers' Championship for the fourth year in a row at last weekend's Indian Grand Prix.

    Nissan will be recalling over 151,000 vehicles due to issues with the anti-lock braking systems.

Needless to say, unpredictable ...

    In its latest 'ad', for a lack of a better term, Infiniti has taken the art of online video a step further, adding a heap of interactivity and, if we're honest, some weirdness to the experience. The video, called Deja View, starts off with two sharply dressed people arriving in an Infiniti Q50 at a nondescript location, with a bunch of windmills whirring ...

    Infiniti and Lexus might be a little concerned now that both of their new luxury sedans, the Q50 and IS250, were unable to net Consumer Reports vaunted "Recommended" rating during their first year on the market. In fact, not only did the two fail to earn a "Recommended" rating, they finished behind the vast majority of the competition after testing, ...

    Ever hear that the best stuff is saved for export? Just ask Japanese luxury car buyers. It's been decades since Japan's largest automakers set out to take on Europe's finest with dedicated luxury brands of their own, but they have kept those brands largely out of their own domestic market and sold them almost exclusively overseas. But that's beginning to ...

    What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them. That's giving ...

    The Singapore Formula One Grand Prix is the Monaco GP of the Orient – a weekend known more for its glamour and time-slot than on-track action, with a temporary circuit that punishes every mistake, usually terminally. Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes-AMG Petronas got the best of Free Practice 1, opening the curtain on a possible resurgence of Silver ...

    What's in a name? When it comes to cars, it can be a lot more than you think. Infiniti caused quite a bit of hubbub late last year when it announced it would be changing its vehicle names so that all of its cars start with Q and all of its crossovers and SUVs start with QX. Now, the luxury division of Nissan has posted a video that it says explains the ...
