Product Overview

Infiniti Q45 Mark II (chassis code Y33) is a full-size luxury sedan in production from 1996 to 2001. It was powered by a single naturally-aspirated V8 engine that displaced 4.1 liters mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. The Q45 Mark II was sold in Japan as Nissan Cima.
The Q45 II used the same platform of the Y33 Nissan Cedric / Gloria. While the engine now displaced only 4.1L, the Q45 name, which was based on the Gen1 model's displacement, was kept.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Infiniti Q45 II uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.
