Infiniti is the upmarket brand of Nissan - in a similar way that Toyota has Lexus - and the G Coupe is the most sports-focused model in the range. It's designed to be a high-quality alternative to models such as the Audi A5 and BMW 3-Series Coupe with supreme build quality and top-class refinement.

Infiniti is the upmarket brand of Nissan - in a similar way that Toyota has Lexus - and the G Coupe is the most sports-focused model in the range. It's designed to be a high-quality alternative to models such as the Audi A5 and BMW 3-Series Coupe with supreme build quality and top-class refinement. It certainly feels like a luxury car on the move with superb refinement while it's also enjoyable to drive with impressive handling. The fact that Infiniti is quite unknown means the G Coupe is a rare sight on the road and attracts attention, although the styling isn't particularly daring or distinctive. The biggest drawback is the limited engine line-up - there's currently only one petrol - a 3.7-litre V6 which is thirsty. The interior also lacks the style and sophistication of alternatives, while the rear seats are cramped. However, Infiniti dealers, although few and far between, do offer the highest levels of customer service.

What owners say...

 Lots of room for front occupants, and although the boot is shallow the back seat folds.  

4 out of 5
