Pittsburgh-area auto buyers are intrigued with Infiniti. Sales of new models grew 40.4 percent in 2012, the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Association said in a report.

The sales growth to 764 vehicles still gives Infiniti just 0.6 percent of the local market, compared to leaders Chevrolet, with 13.5 percent, Ford, with 12.1 percent, and Toyota/Scion, with 9 percent. Chevy and Ford sales dipped slightly last year while Toyota grew 32.4 percent, according to the report based on Experian Auto data.

Other top gainers for 2012 among the most commonly purchased brands: Chrysler, with sales up 25.5 percent, Audi, 19.5 percent, Volkswagen, 18.7 percent, Ram, 17.7 percent, Jeep, 17.6 percent and Honda, 16.6 percent. Overall, new light vehicle registrations grew 5.4 percent last year, below the estimated 13 percent improvement nationwide. Growth of 6.1 percent is projected for 2013.
