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 launches creepily interesting 'Deja View' interactive online movie [w/video]
    1382563920

    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, ...

    Report: Nissan bringing Infiniti brand to Japanese market
    1381757460

    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 ...

    Report: 800k car names trademarked globally, suddenly alphanumerics seem reasonable

    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 ...
