Infiniti Named Canada's Best Luxury Brand For Residual Value



    
    - Nissan Canada Takes Home Four Segment Residual Value Awards, Most of
    Any Manufacturer -
    

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - Just one day after announcing another
record year for sales, Nissan Canada Inc. (NCI) is pleased to accept ALG's
recognition of both its Infiniti and Nissan brands. The announcement came
yesterday, as ALG named Infiniti as its first winner of the overall Luxury
Brand Residual Value Award. According to ALG, Infiniti is recognized with the
award because its vehicles' residual values are "consistently strong,
reflecting its aggressive pricing and superior quality".
    "This recognition is a testament to the quality and value of the entire
Infiniti product lineup", said Wendy Durward, Director, Infiniti Dealer
Operations, Infiniti Canada. "Residual value is an important reflection of the
strength of an automotive brand, and we're thrilled to rank number one in the
luxury category."
    Nissan Canada Inc. was also the recipient of four segment Residual Value
Awards, the most of any manufacturer. ALG named the Maxima (Full Size Car),
GT-R (Luxury Sports Car), Rogue (Compact Utility Vehicle) and Murano (Midsize
Utility Vehicle) all winners in their segments.
    "We're very proud to be recognized in four different vehicle categories
representing the diversity of our vehicle lineup," said Jeff Parent, Vice
President, Sales and Marketing, NCI. "After another record year of sales for
Nissan Canada these awards demonstrate that not only do we provide exciting
new products that Canadians want to buy, but they provide value over the long
term."
    According to ALG, the First Canadian Residual Value Awards are based on
2009 model year vehicles and are derived after studying segment competition,
historical vehicle performance and industry trends, and are based on analysis
using Canada-specific data. Further information about ALG can be found at
