Not sure which way this one will go in terms of heat as it's not a particularly well known car/brand.

I believe it's an established American brand and this particular model is trying to compete with 3 series and C Class here in UK.

Personally it looks like a cross between a Mazda 6 and Lexus IS

Although this deal is for flat paint (appears to be £100 option for metallic) it seems a very well equipped car with plenty of gadgets/features

Engine is decent emitting 114g/km and claiming 65mpg urban yet 0-60secs in 8.7 secs. It's the manual model and it's RWD.

The deal is 2 years personal contract hire, no maintenance and low deposit, for 10k miles/year. You can vary deposit and miles to suit.

Non refundable deposit £798 (3 months equivalent)
£180 admin fee
23 monthly payments of £266

More details on the car here
infiniti.co.uk/car…tml

Infinity is actually Japanese not American.it is the luxury vehicle division of Nissan.

Not sure why deal url never shows, but here it is

I'm pretty sure they're made by Nissan. The posh branch. Sort of the same way that Lexus is Toyota's posh mark. That's a good thing too if you want something really reliable. Especially these days as the Germans are losing the plot with quality.

Had a quick look on Autotrader to see what residuals are like (not many to choose from) and found the following:
Infiniti Dealership (so top end sticker price for a trader)
2014 model with just 16k miles and it retailing for £19k.
Assuming you had to p/x or sell privately for £17k and the cash price new for this vehicle is £31k then that's £14k loss in just over a year.

Probably more to do with the fact that not many people know about these cars hence not much demand for them.

Otherwise car seems alright for looks and kit.

Red Bull have these as sponsors on the back of the cars. Seems ironic how Red Bull Renault are sponsored by Nissan.

Very good cars by the way (Infinity), I would love one myself.

​Nissan and Renault share loads of engines / engine tech so not really.

I'm not a car expert, but I saw one of these on the road the other day, for me they look much smarter than a merc or bmw. Hot price.

infiniti well regarded in usa. they simply havent made a concerted effort to crack the uk before. best thought of as being on par with lexus.

Are they right hand drives. Even the pic on the website shows a left.

Front end looks like a lexus IS

Ta OP. Voted hot.

8k pa is about £600 cheaper over the term. So if the excess mileage is less than 15p per mile then you'd be better off going for that option.

Leasing is the way to go with these.

It's good to see something in this sector that isn't a Bmw, Merc or Audi, bit like choosing a Saab in days gone by.

Correct, its Nissan's luxury brand. Pig ugly cars tho....

Renault owns 43.5% of Nissan, quite a big part...

Hmmm, What Car are distinctly unimpressed with them.
whatcar.com/car…5-2

I think they look rather anonymous for the price they're asking but.
Any decent lease deals for a Tesla?

Hmmm, just googled and roughly around £890...oO

You will get a massive chunk off the RRP so you wouldn't lose that much, would still probably be in five figures tho.

​renault owns part of Nissan



Renault and Nissan are partners in the Renault–Nissan Alliance. It covers both brands, as well as Infiniti, Dacia, and some other smaller manufacturers who primarily focus on other markets in world (e.g. Lada in Russia, and Datsun in India).

Both manufacturers share some platforms and engine technology (for example, a lot of Nissans use Renault's 1.5 dci diesel engine) and they have also shared research & development costs for electric vehicles, such as the Nissan Leaf and the Renault Fluence and Zoe models.

But back on topic - this particular Q50 model actually uses a Mercedes Benz-derived diesel engine - owing to a partnership between the Renault-Nissan Alliance and Daimler... just to add to the confusion!

Heat, btw - seems a decent deal, even if Infiniti don't quite yet have the brand cachet that the usual German suspects (or Lexus, for that matter) have in the UK market. But you never know, in a few years they might just start making some more inroads...

Cheaper than the depreciation suffered by buying with even a hefty discount. If this is the car you want then this lease deal is hot.

Hot. You'd be mad to buy one. Leasing is definitely the way with this one.

​reminds me of the old Lexus IS saloon. Not for me I'm afraid, better alternatives, a bit smaller but golf R

Hot! In terms of depreciation the @rse seems to fall out of all infinitys, so this is a great deal.

In Europe only

The Infiniti fx model was one of the most common cars I saw on the roads of Dubai 5 years ago.

I had never heard of them then.

I liked the look of them.

Yes and that's why most of European Nissan models are so inferior to their non-European models,from design to quality..Renault influence

I drove a hybrid fully loaded model on Wednesday. lovely car. quality interior. exceptionally smooth ride. if this is in your budget it defiantly worth a look.

Yup I did wonder if it was a Merc engine.

Appears to be the one from the C220 CDI with 170bhp, except the Merc is a full second quicker to 60 and slightly better MPG.

I'm guessing it's lighter and possibly a superior gearbox/setup

Pretty sure its a ZF mated to that engine in a Merc so yes the Nissan won't have the same.

No, not American brand.

3 Japanese car brands all have their primium series in different name.

Toyota - Lexus

Honda - Acura

Nissan - Infiniti


Only Lexus is more successful and well-known.

Looks a very nice car that, and will stand out from the thousands of 3-series and A4's on the road.

Does leasing include the insurance company costs or is that extra?

Can u buy the vehicle?

It's a Datsun which ever way you look at it....

You are right about them being Nissan's equivalent of Lexus, but the reliability definitely does not compare to the Toyota brand. In 2014 the Infiniti Q50 was found to be the least reliable executive saloon for sale in the USA:

The Lexus IS on the other hand was the most reliable for the same Consumer Reports survey.

Nope, insurance is pretty much never included in a lease deal. You have to arrange your own.

You also have to be mindful that the insurer may only pay out market value for vehicle and the lease company may be expecting a higher figure, which is where you are expected to make up the shortfall. People buy a product called Gap insurance for this (in addition to norm car insurance)

Manual? WTF

Hardly any dealers about. How would you go about dealer/approved servicing?
