Which Luxury Automaker Is Right for You?

Infiniti and BMW are a pair of luxury auto brands with much different stories. Based in Germany, BMW has been around since 1916, has an extensive racing pedigree, and makes one of the auto industry’s most iconic sedans, the 3 Series. Infiniti was created in 1989 as a luxury brand for Nissan.

These two brands compete in most of the same categories, though BMW offers more overall models, illustrated by its four vehicles in the luxury small cars segment, compared to two for Infiniti.

In this slideshow, we’ll determine which brand has the better overall lineup by comparing U.S. News scoring in individual categories. These scores are based on dozens of professional reviews and other pieces of data, providing a comprehensive picture of test-driver opinion for each vehicle.
