Infiniti is the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Nissan. Nissan started selling this brand in 1969 in North America. In 2012, Infiniti moved its corporate headquarters from Japan to Hong Kong. In 2012, Infiniti sold almost 120,000 vehicles in the U.S. The current Infiniti lineup includes seven models. While enjoying your Infiniti, you also want to be sure you have the proper insurance protection.
If you are considering an Infiniti purchase, you may want to get a tentative Infiniti car insurance quote before making your decision. This may save you time and effort, especially if you are moving up from a less expensive model. You may also try to get financing ahead of time so you know what price range you are comfortable with.
A full auto insurance policy will cover the following:
Insurance costs vary based on a number of variables such as these:
All Infiniti models rate consistently high in safety. All three models reviewed below have antilock brakes, traction control and stability control. You will get a better insurance rate if your auto has a high safety rating. If you buy one of these vehicles, you will save on your Infiniti car insurance.
Infiniti EX: The Infiniti EX is a sport utility vehicle. It gets top ratings in handling and accident avoidance. The interior is of top quality and well constructed. The engine and transmission are more than adequate. The vehicle seats five. The EX model has proven very reliable with better than average ratings for the last several years.
However, this vehicle is not a full-sized SUV. And Infiniti did not design it for off-the-road use. The fuel economy is disappointing at 18 mpg overall with premium fuel. The interior is somewhat cramped and the rear storage area is small.
The 5-year average cost to insure the EX is $1,328 for model year 2013.
Overall, Consumer Reports magazine recommends this vehicle over Acura RDX, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 or the Mercedes-Benz GLK class.
Infiniti QX60: This luxury SUV crossover gets top ratings for roominess, fit and finish, and front seat comfort. Like all Infiniti models, its safety rating is above average. Reliability is above average. The QX60 seats seven. Front wheel drive is standard. Stability is acceptable but not superior.
Its negative qualities include a 19 mpg overall rating with premium fuel, poor rear visibility and adequate but not agile handling. The engine is slightly smaller than the competition's and maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds compared to 5,000 for others.
Despite some of the drawbacks, Consumer Reports magazine recommends the QX60 over the Acura MDX.
Infiniti Q50: This is a relatively new luxury sedan with a G37 chassis and a number of new features. It has a rear or all-wheel drive option. This car debuts the Infiniti In Touch touchscreen communications system. It also has direct adaptive steering and active lane control. Reliability and customer satisfaction are good and, like all Infinitis, safety ratings are above average.
Consumer Reports magazine has not yet tested this model but still recommends it based on its predecessor models.
Infiniti is a well-established luxury brand. Any of its products should give you many years of quality service. Before driving the auto off the lot, make sure you get the best deal at the right price for your Infiniti car insurance.
