Review Summary:

’s G-Sedan is an entry level luxury car that has been around since the 1990’s and is under constant pressure from the Germans with their BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Keeping in mind ’s current fascination with the letter Q, the G Sedan is expected to undergo major surgery and walk out of the operating theatre with a completely new body and a Q50 badge on its bootdeck lid soon.

Pros

Aesthetically, the Infiniti G-Sedan trumps its competition almost effortlessly.

Cons

Majority of the features fall into the optional category and the G-Sedan's ridiculous price tag.

If you were to line-up all five generations of the G-Sedan alongside one another, there is almost no design relation amongst them whatsoever. With the first and second generation vehicles looking like proper economy vehicles, it is only after the third generation model in 2001 that the designers started experimenting with some impressive curves. The 2014 Infiniti G-Sedan sports a taut expression with a chrome grille and although it may not be as elegant as its German rivals, it’s surely a lot more aggressive, aesthetically at least.

There is a typical Nissan aura to the interior, but being Nissan’s sibling that enjoys the finer things in life, Infiniti has used better quality leather and softer materials throughout the cabin. The dashboard is fuss-free and quite nicely put together, with the highlight being the infotainment system that sits neatly in the centre.

The feature list on the G-Sedan is rather long, and surprisingly, majority of the features fall into the ‘standard’ category. Although magnesium paddle shifter, HID headlamps and a 10 speaker Bose sound system are standard affair, the more exciting features such as a sunroof, Bluetooth and Navigation are all options that you’ll have to shell out extra dough for.

It’s either a 2.5 litre V6 or a 3.7 litre V6 engine that the G-Sedan is available with. If you opt for the former, 218 horsepower and 253 Nm of torque is at your disposal, but opt for the latter and figures increase significantly to 326 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a 7 speed automatic transmission and deliver power through the rear wheels.

Pull out a chair and have a seat, because what you are about to read could quite possibly the most shocking thing you read all week. While the BMW 3-Series starts at AED 130,000 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class starts at AED 134,000, the Infiniti G-Sedan is North of AED 140,000! Granted, it’s on its way out and may one day be a part of some of the nicest sedans to come out of Japan, but when evaluating it here and now, it is gobsmackingly expensive!
