1. Body is Both Cut and Curvaceous

Parked next to a hapless BMW 335i, the Infiniti looks like Heidi Klum beside Susan Boyle.

In the IPL trim, Infiniti froux-frouxs the car further with bigger chrome exhaust tips and in our tester, “Moonlight” white paint and IPL-specific 19-inch gun metal black rims.

The car also gets a more aggressive-looking front fascia helped by a large front spoiler. Larger black plastic pieces surround the fog lights and revised side sills lend a lower, sporty look.

Make no mistake, that isn’t meant to suggest that the car is in any way feminine, just pretty like a woman. The only time the flared fenders look any better is when you get behind the wheel.
