2014 inifiniti q50

The redesign of Infiniti's G37 sedan, now known as the Q50 (above) and the brand's big seller, hit the market in August as a 2014 model. Sales of the smaller Q30, developed with Mercedes-Benz will start in the 2015 model year. Four more new or redesigned models are due out by 2016.

Lincoln brought out the MKZ midsize sedan this spring and follows with the MKC compact crossover based on the Ford Escape a year from now. A new mid-size crossover derived from the Edge and a full-size sedan from the Taurus family aren't due until 2015 and 2016 respectively, and Lincoln executives have publically complained about a lack of fresh product.

Advantage: Infiniti
