That is right, you’ve read it correctly. Infiniti is making the 2011 Infiniti G25 available in the U.S. in September with a price tag of $30,950. Seriously, do we need a re-badged Infiniti G37 sedan? I think not. Under the hood is you will get a less potent 2.5-liter V6 engine that produces about 218 horsepower and 187 lb-feet of torque, which is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The Infiniti G25 also comes with the all-wheel drive system found in the G25x trim. Standard equipment includes leather and 8-way power-adjustable seats, automatic climate control, six-speaker audio, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and HID Xenon headlamps. Optional equipment includes rear-view monitor, dual-zone temperature control, heated front seats and outside mirrors.
Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore, speaking at a media event at the 60th annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, said, “With the new G25 Sedan, we’re broadening the appeal of the G Line with a model designed to provide an additional choice for buyers looking for a true luxury sedan, but who might not need the higher levels of performance provided by our larger engine-equipped G37 models,” “The G25 is positioned in the heart of the luxury sport sedan market, allowing us to bring Infiniti’s Inspired Performance to a wider selection of buyers.”
For less than a couple thousand dollars, you get a boiled down Infiniti G37 sedan with a less potent engine. Geez Infiniti, at least try to put a little more effort and at least redesign the outer shell of the Infiiti G25 a bit if you want to position yourself higher in the luxury sport sedan market. We’re not impressed!
We would love to show you more photos but the G25 is pretty much the same as the G37.
