What it is:
 Nissan's luxury brand comes of age.
Complex Says:
 Infiniti's cars had always been nice, but they couldn't hold a candle to ze Germans. When the G35 showed up, the game changed and people were frequently cross-shopping Infinitis with Benzes and Bimmers. The G35 was a refined, powerful, and reliable car that did wonders for the brand's image and sales.
