Infiniti Canada received three ALG Residual Value Awards including its fourth consecutive Best Luxury Brand award.
For the second year in a row, ALG named the Infiniti QX56 Luxury Fullsize Utility award recipient, while the EX35 received the award for best Luxury Compact Utility.
“Delivering inspired products that are best-in-class is what Infiniti is all about and recognition by ALG as Best Luxury Brand four years in a row is a testament to this,” said Allen Childs, President of Nissan Canada Inc.
ALG Award winners are determined through study of the competition in each segment, historical vehicle performance, industry trends, and economic conditions. Vehicle quality, production levels relative to demand, and pricing and marketing strategies remain the key factors that impact ALG’s residual value forecasts.
“Infiniti's top ranking among luxury brands category is a testament to the significant desirability and strong value of its models,” said Geoff Helby, Canada Regional Director for ALG.
“Infiniti delivers a combination of unique performance and luxury to offer consumers excellent value.”
Making its regional debut at the show, the all-new 2013 Infiniti JX is a new offering in the luxury crossover segment the company says is designed to “excel in the areas that this segment’s buyers desire most.”
The Infiniti JX offers segment-leading overall passenger and rear cargo volume with increased accessibility through wide door openings and the ability to access the 3rd row without having to remove a 2nd row child seat.
At a starting MSRP of $44,900, the Infiniti JX is loaded with technologies including the world’s only Back-up Collision Intervention (BCI), added to the currently available Blind Spot Intervention (BSI) system. When the transmission is in reverse, this safety feature will help the driver detect crossing vehicles and objects behind the vehicle and, if necessary, can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision.
The new crossover is expected to hit dealership lots this spring.
