Infiniti released pricing today for its 2013 G luxury sedan line, announcing a $3,800 climb in the base price over the 2012 model, though that’s only because it cut the G25.
That price covers the “Journey” trim level which comes with a seven-speed automatic transmission. A six speed manual can also be had, but only in the sport version which topps the range at $42,395 including delivery. That car is also loaded up with both the premium and navigation packages although none of the other package options Infiniti offers are available on that car.
As one of Japan’s key competitors against German luxury sedans because of its reasonable athleticism and rear-wheel drive the G sedan is pitted against cars like the BMW 328i and Mercedes-Benz C250. The car doesn’t budge a penny this year and still makes a compelling price argument against the BMW which starts at $39,395.
Still, that certainly won’t be enough to sway Bimmer buyers from the turbocharged four-cylinder newly packaged in the BMW 328i. While the Infitini’s V6 isn’t bad, it’s left looking outdated, thirsty and underpowered.
