Infiniti has introduced the entry-level G25 sedan. It features a 2.5-liter V6 engine with 218 hp (163 kW / 221 PS) and 187 lb-ft (253 Nm) of torque.

Ahead of this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Infiniti has introduced the entry-level G25 sedan.

On sale in September, the G25 features a 2.5-liter V6 engine with 218 hp (163 kW / 221 PS) and 187 lb-ft (253 Nm) of torque. It is mated exclusivity to a seven-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels (all-wheel drive is optional).

The base model comes nicely equipped with xenon headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, aluminum trim, automatic climate control, and XM Satellite Radio. The Journey trim level adds heated front seats, a RearView Monitor, automatic headlights, and heated exterior mirrors.

According to Infiniti's Vice President, Ben Poore, "With the new G25 Sedan, we're broadening the appeal of the G Line with a model designed to provide an additional choice for buyers looking for a true luxury sedan, but who might not need the higher levels of performance provided by our larger engine-equipped G37 models." He added the company is confident "...the new G25 will attract a lot of attention in the marketplace."

While the $30,950 base price is certainly competitive, we have to question whether saving $2,300 is worth 110 hp (82 kW / 112 PS) and 82 lb-ft (111 Nm) of torque. We'll let you decide.
