Infiniti Car Insurance

Infiniti is the luxury brand of the Japanese carmaker Nissan Motor Company. In their history of 20-something years they have tapped the markets of 15 countries and have 230 dealers across the world. They have sold over 1 million cars in the United States at an average of around 100,000 units per year. 2009 was the worst year in sales, with little over 81,000 cars sold, but 2012 seems to have been the best out of the last five years – they sold close to 120,000 units.

Infiniti cars aren’t cheap to insure. With a very few exceptions, Infinity owners will pay (a lot) more than the national average to have their vehicles covered. Here are the median costs for the lineup of Infinities that will be available on the American market this year.

  • 2012 Infiniti EX35 – $1,469
  • 2012 Infiniti FX35 – $1,515
  • 2013 Infiniti FX50 – $1,857
  • 2012 Infiniti G25 – $1,455
  • 2013 Infiniti G37 – $1,644
  • 2013 Infiniti JX35 – $1,785
  • 2013 Infiniti M35h – $2,188
  • 2013 Infiniti M37 – $1,802
  • 2013 Infiniti M56 – $1,948
  • 2013 Infiniti QX56 – $1,686

With the exception of the models that don’t have a 2013 generation yet, insurance for an Infiniti is well above the national average of $1,596. And this shouldn’t come as a surprise, given that the cheapest Infiniti has a retail price of around $36,000, and spare parts aren’t exactly cheap. It’s a luxury brand, and the costs of ownership are quite high. However, insurance is not extremely expensive, and not even close to what you would be paying for a luxury Mercedes or Audi.

If you are shopping around for a well equipped, high class car – be it a sedan, a crossover or an SUV – and don’t want to spend a small fortune on running it, then an Infiniti might be the right choice for your needs.
