Introduction

More often than not Infiniti has been likened to Nissan what Lexus is to Toyota. And it seems to be the most accurate description of the brand but unfortunately unlike Lexus, the brand hasn’t enjoyed as much success locally.

Due to a poorly executed attempt to launch the brand in the 90s, Infiniti never really took off and exited with barely any cars sold. However with its re-entry into our challenging market again in 2011, it once again found poor response. Despite having a decent selection of models that boast comparable quality to its main rival, sales was still slow mostly due to the engine capacities offered.

With high road tax imposed on local cars sold, the 5.0-litre and 3.7-litre capacities offered by the brand fared poorly here.

The new Q50 however gives the brand a significantly better chance at standing toe to toe with the competition.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.

Excellent service. I don't get a lot of nuisance calls and car is sold with no hassle. I would recommend this service to anyone looking to sell their precious "asset".
