Infiniti is the luxury division of Nissan, a Japanese automaker, and was first introduced in the North American market in 1989. The first vehicles to launch were the Q45 and the M30 in 1989. The current product line consists of the Infiniti G series, M series, EX series, FX series, QX series, and JX series.
The Infiniti G series is the best-selling line for the company, accounting for over 60% of revenues. The current G model line includes the G37 Coupe, G37 Sedan, G25 Sedan and G37 Convertible. To many car enthusiasts, the G37 Coupe is known as the Japanese BMW, due to its high performance and handling capabilities.

In 2011, the G37 Sedan was awarded the Top of the Class award by Consumer Reports, the fifth consecutive year in a row.
