So putting in a 2.0T is competing with the Sonata? Not the BMW 328, Audi A4, Cadillac ATS, Mercedes-Benz C300....

If you want to compete with the Joneses, first you need to keep up with them.

it's going to be a 2.0T shared with the Benz C class. Let's see how it performs first for gas mileage purposes

Cars in most other countries, especially in Asia, have huge importation taxes, along the lines of 100%, and engine displacement taxes, that increase exponentially with the displacement. Its a kind of luxury tax, and a method to control pollution and increase gas savings.

Yes, Infiniti should stick to targeting the niche market of enthusiasts and sink like so many....Saab, etc.
The R&D investment of developing a new motor platform is far more expensive than paying to use someone else's design. It makes complete sense to me.
Let's face it, I bet an overwhelming percentage of G37 owners don't care about what's under the hood as long as it provides decent power and economy.
I am more than certain Infiniti has analyzed the demographic of the G37 buyers and this move will definitely yield more profits, despite of loosing the market of enthusiast.
