There are so many lease deals out there that it can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to know which ones are right for you and which ones aren’t.
Infiniti haven’t been hugely popular in the UK in the past, but they are becoming increasingly popular recently, and we think that this rise in popularity will coincide with a rise in great lease deals to be had on the brand.
So which deals are the best? We look at the top 5 Infiniti cars to lease, and talk a little bit about their reliability.
What are the top 5 Infiniti cars to lease?
It should be noted before we begin that these prices are correct as of December 2017 and are subject to change. There are many things that impact lease prices, and we recommend doing your own research and also contacting an experienced vehicle broker who will be able to do some research and find you the best deal for you and your situation.
Infiniti Q30 Hatchback
The Q30 Hatchback is a luxury crossover compact that is perfect for small families or for someone who wants something luxurious, but on the smaller side. It comes in several trims with a range of features including cruise control, dual zone climate control and rear parking sensors.
There are five trim levels on offer; the SE, Premium, Premium Tech, Business Executive and Sport. The SE gets cruise control, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition and a 7-inch infotainment system.

Finally, the Sport trim gets sports seats, flat bottom sports leather steering wheel, sports front and rear bumper and a sports braking system.
There are four engines to choose from, a 1.5-litre and 2.1-litre diesel engines and a 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre turbo petrol engines.

The most efficient is the 1.5-litre diesel which achieves 68.9mpg on a combined cycle and emits 108g/km of CO2.
In terms of boot space, the Q30 offers 368-litres with the rear seats in place. The rear seats fold down in a 60:40 split so they don’t go completely flat. However, it does make some extra room.
If you were to lease an entry level Q30 on a Personal Contract Hire then you will be looking at upwards of £210 a month and upwards of £180 a month on a Business Contract Hire. For a top of the range model then you will be looking at upwards of £370 a month on a Personal Contract Hire and upwards of £300 a month on a Business Contract Hire.
Infiniti Q50 Saloon
Perhaps you are looking for something a bit more executive, in which case we would direct you to the Q50 Saloon. The Q50 is a great executive car that makes a change from the BMW’s and Audi’s of the saloon market but comes with all of the executive features including leather seats and adaptive climate control.
There is a 2.1-litre diesel engine, a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol model, a 3.0-litre V6 engine and a hybrid model that comes with a 3.5-litre V6 engine. The quickest model is the hybrid, which can reach 62mph from rest in just 5.1 seconds. Interestingly, the diesel model is the most efficient emitting 114g/km of CO2 for an entry-level model and achieving 60mpg.
The trim levels are the same as the other Infiniti models. The SE model gets Active Trace Control, hill start assist, six airbags, cruise control, rain sensing wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual touch screens, Bluetooth, voice recognition, keyless entry and USB and iPod connectivity as well as many other extras. The Premium model adds heated leather seats and the Sport trim comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, Direct Adaptive Steering, heated mirrors and electric sports front seats. The Hybrid gets its own extras including sports suspension, regenerative brakes and sports brakes. The Premium Executive gets electric heated seats, an I-Key system and sat-nav.
The infotainment system allows you to search the internet and adjust the climate control as well as other comfort settings. You can also upgrade to a premium auto option which includes 14-speakers.
The Q50 boasts 500-litres of boot space, but this does decrease to 400-litres if you opt for the hybrid model as there has to be space for the battery.
If you were to lease an entry-level Q50 then you will be looking at upwards of £300 a month on a Personal Contract Hire and upwards of £240 a month on Business Contract Hire. If you were to lease a top of the range model then you will be looking at upwards of £470 a month on a Personal Contract Hire and upwards of £400 a month on a Business Contract Hire.
The Infiniti Q60 sits in the middle of the Infiniti range and is stylish, comes with a decent amount of kit and is great to drive.

The 2.0-litre can reach 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds with a top speed of 146mph. The 3.0-litre boasts a top speed of 155mph and reaches 0-62mph in just 5 seconds. The most efficient model is the 2.0-litre petrol which returns 41.5mpg and emits 156g/km of CO2.

You can also use a smartphone app that helps you remember where you parked or track your car should it be stolen. There are a few trim levels for you to choose from. The Premium level trim comes with cruise control, climate control, leather seat trim, parking sensors, remote locking, heated seats and heated mirrors. The Premium Tech gets the full safety pack including adaptive cruise control, emergency braking and accident prevention.

The Sport Tech adds an eco pedal.
In terms of space you get just 342-litres which is fairly small compared to its competitors but it should be enough for your shopping and essentials.
If you were to lease the Q60 then for an entry level model on a Personal Contract Hire then you will be looking at upwards of £450 a month and upwards of £380 a month on a Business Contract Hire. For a top of the range model you will be looking at upwards of £660 a month on a Personal Contract Hire and upwards of £550 a month on a Business Contract Hire.
Infiniti Q70 Saloon
If the Q50 isn’t executive enough for you, then the Q70 is the step up in the saloon market. Larger than the Q50, it comes with Distance Control Assist and comes with an I-Key with smart access even on the lower trim. The starting price is £34,260, so more expensive than the other Infiniti’s but is also affordable for such an executive car.
There are two main trim levels, the Premium and the Sport, with the Premium Tech and Sport Tech adds extra safety kit and equipment. All models get rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, sat-nav, 18 or 20-inch alloy wheels and ventilated leather seats. The tech models get radar cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, a Bose sound system with extra speakers, a 360-degree parking camera and Forest air conditioning. Wonder what Forest air conditioning is? It’s a climate control system that mimics irregular breezes, the ones you would find in the forest, coupled with a tree pine fragrance. Which is fun.
The models also get the Dynamic Safety Shield system as well as lane departure warning and Low Speed Following which automatically brakes at low speeds if needed.
You also get blind spot warning, six airbags and anti-whiplash front head restraints.
In terms of engines, there are a few for you to choose from. These include a 2.2-litre diesel engine, a 3.7-litre petrol and a 3.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid. If you’re looking for speed then you will want to look at the hybrid model as it achieves 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds. The most economical, however, is the diesel engine which achieves 57.6mpg and emits 129g/km of CO2.
The boot space is fairly good and on par with rivals at 500-litres. However, this decreases to 450-litres in the diesel engine and 350-litres with the hybrid version.
If you are to lease a Q50 then for an entry-level model on a Personal Contract Hire you would be looking at upwards of £330 a month and upwards of £270 a month on a Business Contract Hire. If you were to lease a top of the range model then you will be looking at upwards of £530 a month on a Personal Contract Hire and upwards of £440 a month on a Business Contract Hire.

The most premium trim comes with Intelligence Cruise Control and an Around View Monitor with corner parking sensors.
There are two petrol engines and one diesel engine to choose from. The petrol line up consists of a 3.7-litre V6 and a 5.0-litre V8 engine and a 3.0-litre V6 diesel with 235bhp. The fastest engine is the 5.0-litre petrol engine which achieves 0-62mph in 5.8 seconds. The most efficient model is the diesel engine which can achieve 32.8mpg and emits 225g/km of CO2.
There are three trim levels, the GT, the S and the S Premium. The GT comes with 20-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, Bi-xenon headlights, LED taillights and a sliding sunroof.

For a top of the range model you will be looking at upwards of £670 a month on a Personal Contract Hire and upwards of £560 a month on a Business Contract Hire.
In conclusion, there are a few good Infiniti vehicles for you to lease. There are some great deals to be had on both private and business contracts including on Personal Contract Hire and Business Contract Hire. However, these deals are subject to change, and are correct as of December 2017. We recommend that you do your own research on Infiniti lease deals before you make a decision, as these deals can change. They could get more affordable, or they could get more expensive. We also advise checking every aspect of a lease deal before you decide to go ahead. You must look at the mileage and the contract duration, to ensure that it suits you.
You should also be sure to check the initial rental, as that could be higher than you have budgeted for. Hopefully, however, this has given you some idea of how much it will cost to lease an Infiniti car. We advise people every day, and we find some great lease deals. Therefore, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
