4-door Sports Car — Most like the stylish body shape, panoramic sunroof, ample head & leg room, great sound system, quick speed acceleration, USB connection, Bluetooth capability, heated seats & steering wheel. Most dislike car sitting low to ground (Hard for tall people like me to get in & out of car)

Pros

This car is great on gas mileage; and comes equipped with a monitor, so that you can see in real time what you're actually getting per gallon.

Cons

I really don't have anything negative to say about my car.  Frankly, as my children are growing older, and involved in more activities, a van or suv makes more sense for our family.

Sporting Luxury — I loved the combination of the luxurious interior, with the sunroof, leather, heated seats, great sound system, all married with the sporty performance. These features, combined with the affordability of the purchase, care and maintenance really allows you to enjoy the ride in this model!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very Attractive And Sporty Car — I like this car very much. Its a car that is sporty and robust and turns heads when it has waxed and detailed. The handling is very resonsive and the acceleration shows it's 290 hp engine. I guess the only draw back for me is that I would have like to have it in the SV model now.

Nissan mannage to add most of the infiniti features to this car without increasing the price too much as it still carries Nissan badge.

Really Happy With It, Looks Good, Drives Good And Was Worth The Money — Performance: Firstly it has 300 bhp (near enough and 4 driving modes with paddle shifters. Then top it off with a DSG style gearbox for smooth and sports modes. Acceleration can be steady or pin you to your seat. On the highway at 120km/h there is minimal noice as youd expect from a luxury car and this one is a borderline Infiniti. Fuel economy isnt too bad either from this 3.5l V6 engine. A full tank can return 700km if driven respectfully or around 300 if not. Build Quality As with most things Japanese it has a solid feel to it. No wobbly interior parts and the finishing of the leather sports seats is exquisite. The faux walnut fascia surrounding the transmission and cubby hole could do with a re-think though. Bose sound system as well as a touch screen Sat NAv, iPod control and built in 20Gb HD ensures that the car is stacked with toys. Auto dimming mirros, electric rear blind, electric windows, seats, central locking keyless entry & start and even cooled drivers seating. Did I mention front and rear sensors AND a rear camera too! Appearance The car has a sporty, aggressive look that could have easily swayed more to the world of boy racers if the spoiler or body kit were any more exaggerated. it can sit alongside the likes of the higher end luxury cars and still carry its own. The alloys are a very nice touch too. Cost of ownership It was a reasonably priced car when new AED134k. The same vehicle now in a 2012 model is around the AED140k mark. The car came with registration, insurance and a service package thrown in (till 20,000km) and I extended it to 60k. So far it hasnt missed a beat as you would expect from a new car. Fuel can be a probelm if you have a heavy right foot, but on the whole not so bad. Fun Factor The car can be a family sedan and then switches to this sporty roadster style sedan when needs to. The paddle shifters help to alleviate those boring drives and can engage the driver easily. I can see why some people would take this around a track

Pros

Great exhaust note to acompany awesome engine

Cons

gas mileage ok....that's it

An Infinity With The Nissan Badge — 290 Hp V6 with the CVT transmission makes for smooth and quick acceleration. Buckets seats in the front and the back. Best features are probably the integrated ipod system, the sound quality, and HEATED STEERING WHEEL!!! Beautiful car that drives and handles great!
