The idea of a more affordable Infiniti G sedan is intriguing. One does have to wonder, however, what implications moving further down-market and into a lower price segment might have on Infiniti's brand perception as a whole. With the new M on the way and Infiniti's efforts to move that nameplate even further up-market, a more affordable G sedan seems almost counterproductive.

That hasn’t stopped Infiniti, however, from announcing today its new 2011 Infiniti G25 Sedan, which features a 2.5-liter V-6 and goes on sale this September priced from $30,950. That’s about $2,300 cheaper than the more powerful G37 but more importantly, it undercuts the pricing of rivals like the Lexus IS and Audi A4 by about $400 and $500 respectively.

The new 2011 Infiniti G25 Sedan shares the same exterior styling, interior detailing and chassis as the G37, but with a smaller displacement engine. The 2.5-liter V-6 produces 218 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque, versus the G37’s 3.7-liter V-6, which is rated at 328 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.

The Infiniti G25 Sedan also comes with a standard seven-speed automatic transmission and is available in both rear-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive, the latter wearing G25x badging.

Despite being the new entry-level model in Infiniti’s lineup, the G25 still comes generously equipped with standard items including leather trim, aluminum highlights, eight-way power driver’s seat and four-way power front passenger’s seat, automatic climate control, premium audio with six speakers and XM Satellite Radio (subscription required). Other standard features include 17-inch aluminum wheels, xenon headlights, four-wheel Anti-lock Disc Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS).

Upgrade to the more premium G25 Journey model and you get a rear-view monitor, heated front seats and mirrors, and dual zone climate control.

  1. I know this is a base engine, but it could use more power, otherwise I appluad Infiniti for adding in an entry level G. Also can we not do anything about these random comments?
