    It seems huge. Probably because the big beast is!

    To be fair, Infiniti quality is good, and pretty much comparable to Lexus.

    I have owned 3 Infinitis in the past. They were all a year or two old and pre-owned certified. They are really not that far off from comparable Lexus models but they are appreciably less costly.

    I think that Toyota released Lexus and that Nissan released Infiniti about the same time ( the mid 1980s??? ). But for a variety of reasons, Infiniti has always been holding up the rear.

    Infiniti quality is very good, actually I rate it as excellent. However, that large SUV gets 13 mpg and is as ugly as can be.

    I see your Infiniti and raise you a Nissan Puke... I mean Juke

    what's wrong with nissan's (that includes infiniti) SUV line? i feel like it would've been much harder to have a nicer looking sedan (i think nissan sedans look pretty nice) than an SUV.

    it's a big box with lights and wheels :\\

    saw one of those a while back, I almost threw up. Not only was the previous model ugly, but they managed to make this one even uglier. The Japs should stay away from SUV's period. The folks at Lexus aren't doing much better in that department.

    Not that ugly. Probably would never own one, but I dig it.

    I'd be surprised if there's an OEM snorkel attachment for this Infiniti model.

    I see them glued on the side of sedans made in the mid to late 90s all the time.

    Aside from the side gills, I honestly don't feel it's that bad. IMO it's somewhat better looking than the previous generation. The rear 3/4 is rather standard but attractive, it's the front that needs a little reworking. Regardless, I could name numerous SUV's available that are equal if not less attractive, i.e. GMC Terrain, Nissan Juke, New FX, whatever we're calling the X6, etc.

    Small SUVs are almost universally hideous. I can't think of one I like.
