Hi! I'm Miranda Lightstone for watchmojo.com and today, we’re going to meet the newest member of the Infiniti family, the G25x. Looking from the outside, the G25 is almost identical to the G37. This is much smaller, it’s kind of like a shrunken down version of the G37. The trunk is stubbier, the front nose is a little bit shorter but in all other aspects, it’s pretty much the same car. And that follows through to the inside as well.
Even though this is the entry level base Infiniti, it’s pretty much like any other Infiniti. You’ve got your leather seat, you’ve got your full entertainment system; you’ve got a back up camera. [Inaudible] at the back seat is smaller. There's not as much legroom as in previous G’s and that’s a bit of a shame but again, this is an entry level and it is supposed to be smaller, so you can't really complain, especially since the trunk is actually quite large. So, in all respects, this is a very practical G.
Now, just because this is the baby of Infiniti bunch, it doesn’t mean that it’s missing out on any power. This is a new engine for Infiniti. As a G25, it has a 2.5 liter V6 engine that pushes at about 218 horsepower and a 187 pound-feet of a torque. It doesn’t sound like a lot but for a car this size, it actually does quite a good job and I think it has a quite substantial amount of kick.
Another point that I really like about this car, as an Infiniti has kept its exhaust rumble. It sounds like the parents that was on the first G35 or the FX model, but you can still kind of hear and it is nice that they kept it. This entry level Infiniti might be the baby of the bunch but the G25 is still a well appointed vehicle available for less than you might expect.
