2001 INFINITI G20 Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Infiniti is Nissan’s luxury brand, and the front-drive G20 sedan is the entry-level model. The G20 shares some components with the Nissan Sentra, including its four-cylinder engine, and appears to have a short future in the United States.

For the 2002 model year, Infiniti will replace the G20 with what is expected to be a larger sedan with a six-cylinder engine and perhaps rear-wheel drive. Infiniti says the new model will have European styling and sports car-handling ability.



Exterior
The compact G20 is 177.5 inches long — about 3 inches longer than the Honda Civic sedan. The Touring model (G20t) is easily distinguished from the base model by its standard rear spoiler.



Interior
Cloth upholstery is standard in the G20, and leather is optional. Infiniti says it has five-passenger capacity, but the rear seat lacks sufficient legroom for most adults to fit comfortably.

Standard equipment includes air conditioning; a Bose sound system with cassette and CD players; power windows, locks and mirrors; remote keyless entry; and a theft-deterrent system.



Under the Hood
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 145 horsepower and teams with a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes and side-impact airbags for the front seats.



Driving Impressions
For about the same money as a four-cylinder G20, you can get a V-6 Honda Accord or Toyota Camry with stronger, smoother acceleration and a roomier interior. You ...

For about the same money as a four-cylinder G20, you can get a V-6 Honda Accord or Toyota Camry with stronger, smoother acceleration and a roomier interior. You won’t get the Infiniti brand name, the more comprehensive warranty or the more attentive service, but the Accord and Camry will have higher resale values.

Good car

by Julie from Del Mar on December 19, 2017

It’s a great car, ran for quite awhile with the usual maintenance. Not a million on the road so I can find it in the parking lot. Read full review

Nice Car

by btaylor from Akron, OH on September 7, 2017

This car can take a beating, but when parts do go out theyll be expensive. I had the tan leather heated seats and they were my favorite thing during the winter. The car handled pretty well in the snow... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
