The Lexus IS 250 is part of IS family of Luxury Compacts that started in 1998. The 250 editions became part of the lineup in 2005 as part of the second generation. In 2009, the IS 250 C joined the lineup, offering faster performance. In 2016, Lexus discontinued the IS 250 in favor of the IS 200t, a high-torque I-4 turbo.
The Infiniti G series dates back even further. Starting in 1990, this compact sedan was introduced to the U.S. It lasted four generations until the name was discontinued in 2015. The series was renamed Q40 or Q50 in 2013. The name Q60 was added for the coupe and convertible models. While the G series was popular, Infiniti wanted to rename its lineup. Even by today’s standards, G37 editions were quite powerful with plenty of horses under the hood. Coupes and convertibles were sold under the G37 model name. Sedans are listed as G37 Journey editions.
