Infiniti –

2012 Infiniti G37 Sedan

There are a lot of luxury cars available at the moment and one strong competitor is Infiniti. One relevant example would have to be the 2012 G Sedan which is powered by a 2.5-liter V6 engine that develops 218 hp. The car can also be ordered with a beefier V6 3.7-liter unit that produces 328 hp.

It is available with either a rear-wheel drive system or the company’s own Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. The car offers seating for up to five adults, and it is available in eight exterior colors and three interior colors. The prices for this Infiniti sedan start from MSRP $32,400.

2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe

The coupe version of this model is motivated by a more powerful V6 3.7-liter engine that churns 330 hp, linked to either the RWD or the AWD system. Even though it is a coupe, it has enough room to accommodate up to four adults so you get the best from both worlds: the looks of a coupe and the spacious cabin of a sedan. The 2012 Infiniti G Coupe costs from MSRP $37,600.

2012 Infiniti G37 Convertible

The Japanese automaker also has the Convertible version which is considerably pricier as its base price is of MSRP $46,400. It has the same V6 3.7-liter engine with 325 hp but it is available only with a rear-wheel drive configuration.

2012 Infiniti IPL G Coupe

If you want a quicker car, have a look at the 2012 Infiniti IPL G Coupe which is motivated by a 3.7-liter IPL-tuned V6 engine that develops 348 hp. Available only with a RWD configuration, this model features an IPL-tuned high-flow dual exhaust and has a starting price of MSRP $49,350.

2012 Infiniti M35 Hybrid

Our favorite Infiniti is the M model which can be ordered with a V6 330 hp, a 360 hp hybrid or a more powerful V8 420 hp engine. It’s available with a rear-wheel drive system or the aforementioned Intelligent All-Wheel Drive setup and can accommodate up to five adults. The prices start from MSRP $47,700.

2012 Infiniti EX

The most affordable Infiniti SUV that you can buy is the EX which comes with a V6 3.5-liter engine that produces 297 hp. Available in either a RWD or an AWD version, this model has seating for up to five adults and costs from MSRP $35,600.

2012 Infiniti FX35

A more expensive SUV is the Infiniti FX that will set you back at least MSRP $43,450. It can be ordered with a V6 303 hp engine (FX35 model) or the more powerful V8 390 hp engine (FX50 model). The entire horsepower can be sent to the back wheels or to all of them via the AWD setup. It offers seating for up to five adults and can be ordered with one of the seven exterior colors available.

2012 Infiniti QX

If you have top dollars to spend, have a look at the 2012 Infiniti QX that starts from MSRP $58,700. This model is available exclusively with a V8 5.6-liter 32-valve engine that generates 400 hp. It can be purchased with either a rear-wheel drive system or Infiniti’s All-Mode 4WD.

2013 Infiniti IPL G Convertible

One of the models introduced last week in L.A. by Infiniti is this gorgeous 2013 IPL G Convertible  which is powered by a V6 3.7-liter engine that churns 343 hp (348 PS / 256 kW) and 273 lb.-ft (370 Nm), mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox.

For this year’s edition of the Los Angeles Auto Show, Infiniti has decided to bring the new generation of the JX seven-seat luxury crossover, after they’ve unveiled the concept version back in August during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The production version of the Infiniti JX will get a V6 3.5-liter gasoline engine under its hood, a power unit that is capable of developing 261 hp. The car will be available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions, and it will adopt various new technologies, including the Backup Collision Intervention which will allow the driver to spot crossing objects behind the car and the system is capable of applying the brakes in order to avoid collision.

The car will feature an impressive 14-speaker Bose studio surround sound system along with the Infiniti Connection Telematics system which will be able to automatically synchronize the driver’s calendar and offer navigation aid to appointments.

The Infiniti JX35 FWD will carry a starting price of $40,450 while the JX35 AWD will be available from $41,550.

Infiniti FX50 S Vettel

Last month during the Frankfurt Motor Show, Infiniti brought a one-off FX Vettel concept that had aerodynamic and engineering updates which were tailored by the double F1 champion who was directly involved in the development of the SUV. Even though at that moment they’ve said that this will remain a concept, apparently the folks at Infiniti have changed their mind and this car will go into a limited production.

Infiniti FX50 S Vettel

This is only the first model that will be launched as a result of the collaboration between Infiniti and Vettel, who is the company’s ambassador and double world Formula 1 champion for Red Bull Racing. Andy Palmer who is the automaker’s boss described this newly established relationship similar to the one between Mercedes-Benz and AMG or the one between BMW and the M division.

Infiniti FX50 S Vettel

This Vettel edition of the FX50 S comes with a new design for the front grille, LED daytime running lights, a carbon fiber spoiler which has been modeled on the front wing of a F1 car, a rear spoiler, along with carbon fiber sills and wing mirrors.

Infiniti FX50 S Vettel

At the heart of this SUV is a modified V8 5.0-liter engine that churns 414 hp and is able to hit 186 mph (300 km/h) thanks to the fact that the limiter has been removed and it has more horsepower under its hood.

Infiniti FX50 S Vettel

Palmer added that since the FX50 S Premium costs 58,250 pounds, this limited-run Vettel edition might have “a price tag of up to 75,000 pounds.”

2012 Infiniti M35h

The Japanese car manufacturer Infiniti has become popular for rolling out cars that offer luxury and performance. With the introduction of the M35h model in Europe, the company decided to not focus on the car’s fuel economy or the list of available goodies. Instead, they’ve invited the guys from the Guinness World Records to UK’s Santa Pod Raceway where the gorgeous sedan was officially certified as being the “world’s fastest accelerating full hybrid” in the entire world.

2012 Infiniti M35h

They took a regular, production-line version and tested it without making any sort of modifications, achieving an average run of 13.9 seconds @ over 100 mph. The car is motivated by a V6 engine that develops 292 hp and an electric motor that has an additional 67 hp, all for a grand total of 359 hp. These figures are available for the European-spec model while the North American version offers “only” 350 hp.

2012 Infiniti M35h

Anyway, the car needed 5.5 seconds in order to do the 0-62 mph sprint, which makes it a little bit faster than the now-defunct BMW ActiveHybrid X6 that does the 0-60 mph sprint in the same amount of time. Let’s not forget that we are talking about a frugal car so we have to mention that it can return 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, according to EPA. In addition, the 2012 Infiniti M35h can be driven in electric mode at speeds of up to 75 mph.

Infiniti FX50 Vettel Concept

About six month ago, rumors started surfacing the Internet about a special edition of the FX which has the signature of the current world F1 champion Sebastian Vettel. After a couple of teasers, we finally get to see the car, and from the beginning we have to tell you that it won’t make it as a production model as this is only a one-off concept.

Infiniti FX50 Vettel Concept

The chassis of the car has been lowered by 20 mm and they’ve also implemented a new aerodynamic package that includes both revised front & rear bumpers. For the front splitter as well as the rear diffuser, Infiniti’s engineers have used carbon fiber, while the mirror covers, front grille and the side sills benefit from the same treatment. Thanks to these upgrades, the coefficient of lift (Cl) has been improved by 30% over the standard model while the coefficient of drag (cd) is now 5% lower. The car rides on massive black-painted 21-inch alloys that have silver rims.

Infiniti FX50 Vettel Concept

By installing the aforementioned carbon fiber components and the lightweight wheels, they’ve managed to reduce the weight of the car by 101 pounds (46 kg) in comparison to the regular FX50S Premium and it now weighs 4,517 lbs (2,049 kg), which is still a lot if you ask me.

Infiniti FX50 Vettel Concept

Real black carbon fiber was used for trimming the door panels, center console and the dashboard, while the gearshift paddles and the steering wheel got the Alcantara treatment. The FX50 Vettel features specially-designed sport seats that have additional support and have been wrapped around in black quilted suede cloth that was finished with purple stitching and a couple of “SV” logos.

Infiniti FX50 Vettel Concept

The car is powered by a revised version of the standard V8 5.0-liter engine and it now has a new exhaust system and a remapped ECU, which increases the output to 420 hp, up from the standard 390 hp. They’ve also ditched the V-max limiter and included a longer final drive ratio which allows the vehicle to hit a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h). It is also faster in the 0-62 mph sprint, being able to do it in 5.6 seconds, which 0.2 quicker than the regular model. Other modifications include re-rated dampers as well as stiffer springs.

Infiniti FX50 Vettel Concept

As we said in the beginning, this is only a one-off concept and at the moment there are no plans of launching a production version but we’re almost certain that if the feedback is very good they’ll change their mind and roll out a limited series which will probably carry an exorbitant price tag.

Infiniti IPL G Convertible Concept

During this year’s edition of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event, Infiniti announced that the IPL G Convertible, which was on display there as a concept, will spawn into a production variant as a 2013MY.

Infiniti IPL G Convertible Concept

IPL is the company’s performance division and the car will probably have the same engine as the concept, which is a V6 3.7-liter unit that develops 333 hp (338 PS / 249 kW) and has a peak torque of 276 lb.-ft (374 Nm).

Infiniti IPL G Convertible Concept

When it will hit the market, the car will be available with a 3-piece folding hardtop and it will ride on 19-inch IPL aluminum alloy wheels. In addition, it will feature a sports-tuned suspension and exhaust, along with an interior cabin that will be wrapped around in red leather, while the exterior will have a Malbec Black finish.

Infiniti JX 7

After a few days in which they’ve revealed several teasers, this week at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event organized in Monterey, California, the Japanese automaker Infiniti unveiled the JX 7 Concept, which is the preview of the production version that will be presented at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show.

Infiniti JX 7

Design-wise, from the outside of this big 7-seater crossover we notice that they’ve borrowed a few styling ideas implemented in the company’s Essence concept, like the grill and headlamp design, plus the crescent-cut D-pillar. It seems that the interior cabin continues the swoopy exterior styling, featuring three rows of seats which can accommodate up to seven passengers.

Infiniti JX 7

Infiniti said that the production version will come with a rich selection of technologies, including Blind Spot and Backup Collision Intervention systems, Infiniti Connection Telematics systems, along with a powerful Bose Audio Studio Surround sound system that benefits from the Waveguide bass technology and comes with 14 speakers.

Infiniti JX 7

Under the hood all we know is that it will have a V6 engine of undisclosed capacity, but most likely it will be a 3.7-liter unit which will be linked to a “sports-tuned” CVT. Clients will have the possibility to opt from an AWD system or a FWD version.

More information about the car will be revealed in November at the L.A. Auto Show.

2012 Infiniti FX

A few days ago Infiniti revealed the first batch of photos with the facelift version of its FX sport utility vehicle which will make its official debut later on this August at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Set to go on sale in the United States next year, it will come with a lot of styling updates that were inspired by the company’s Essence that was revealed back in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show.

2012 Infiniti FX

The facelift version will come with a new front grille and an entirely updated front fascia. In addition, clients will be able to choose from new designs for the alloy wheels while the cabin will also benefit from some updates, like a new instrument cluster and heated seats.

2012 Infiniti FX

As for engines, the 2012 Infiniti FX will be powered by either an entry-level V6 3.5-liter engine that develops 303 hp or with a more powerful V8 5.0-liter unit that fires 390 hp. Clients will be able to get the SUV with either a RWD or an AWD configuration and these engines will be mated as standard with a 7-speed automatic gearbox.

2012 Infiniti FX35 Limited Edition

Infiniti also confirmed that they will roll out a special edition of the FX, dubbed FX35 Limited Edition which will ride on bespoke 21-inch alloy rims and it will come with a special Iridium Blue paint, special floor mats, tinted headlights as well as aluminum pedals

Also at the Pebble Beach, Infiniti will bring the 7-seat XJ SUV. It seems that neither this seven-seater nor the aforementioned Limited Edition will make it into United Kingdom or at least that what Infiniti told Autocar.

AHG Sports Infiniti FX 30dS

AHG Sports is the tuning division of Infiniti Zentrum Hamburg and they’ve decided to prepare an upgrade program for the FX 30dS model. If you have this car and you are willing to spare 1,250 Euros, the company can raise the output figure of the V6 3.0-liter diesel engine from the standard 235 hp (238 PS / 175 kW) and 406 lb.-ft (550 Nm) to 276 hp (280 PS / 206 kW) and 600 Nm of torque.

AHG Sports Infiniti FX 30dS

What impresses me the most are those 21-inch wheels and the rubbed wrapped around them. These 3-piece CC Schmidt Revolution wheels are available in 11 x 21-inch and are covered by 295/40R21. Why you ask? Because a set costs 7,900 Euros! They are indeed very nice, but let’s face it, for that kind of money you can buy a whole car.

AHG Sports Infiniti FX 30dS

For another 1,495 Euros, they’ll install lowering springs which will drop the suspension of the Infiniti FX 30dS by 25 mm. The price includes installation.

Infiniti M35h

Although the hybrid technology incorporated in our cars may seem new, it’s actually something that engineers have been working on for over 1000 years. The first hybrid car was invented in 1888 and the first hybrid patent was completed in 1909.

Infiniti thought of putting all that history together in their new ad for their M35h. The car maker suggests that its vehicle is the top result of a hundred years of evolution and it can give you the best performance money can buy: 360 hp and a 32 mpg fuel consumption.

Our opinion is that the insight was good, but they could’ve spent a little more time over the details. Still, it’s a decent commercial. Watch it below:
