FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Total Car Score, a leading automotive ranking and comparison website, today announced INFINITI as the number one scoring brand on its listing of the "Top 10 Best Car Brands for 2012."  The study, which focuses on the strength of a brand's overall product range, is based on numerical ratings for 2012 model year vehicles by independent automotive media and reviewers.  INFINITI vehicles averaged a Total Car Score of 82.09.  INFINITI was followed by Mercedes-Benz, Buick, Aud1 and Lexus.

"The list provides a data-driven assessment of which automakers are producing the most desirable, highest quality cars, crossovers, SUVs and pickup trucks," said Total Car Score Editor in Chief Karl Brauer in announcing the results.

"Ranking first in the Total Car Score Top 10 is validation of our efforts to produce a total lineup of Inspired Performance vehicles, not just one or two great cars," said INFINITI Americas Vice President Ben Poore.  "INFINITI has always maintained one of the freshest, most dynamic product lineups in the industry and it's heartening to receive this important acknowledgment by Total Car Score."

The 2012 INFINITI lineup includes the INFINITI M luxury sedan and INFINITI M Hybrid; INFINITI G Sedan, Coupe, Convertible and IPL G Coupe; INFINITI FX performance luxury crossover; INFINITI EX crossover; and INFINITI QX full-size luxury SUV.  In addition, INFINITI recently launched two new 2013 models – the 3-row/7-passenger INFINITI JX luxury crossover and the IPL G Convertible.  All of these vehicles are available now at INFINITI retailers nationwide.  Every INFINITI vehicle also comes with INFINITI Personal Assistant, a unique personal concierge service providing owners with 24-hour access to live assistants no matter where they are.

INFINITI offers a full-line of luxury performance automobiles, including the G Coupe, Sedan and Convertible, INFINITI M sedan, EX and FX crossovers, the QX full-size SUV and the all-new INFINITI JX luxury crossover.  More information about INFINITI and its Total Ownership Experience can be found at
