At the top of the Infinity G series of sedans, the G37 offers more features, power options and a larger engine than other models. This sedan offers a rather sporty feel and offers a decent amount of acceleration to the driver. The standard 3.7 L V-6 engine only produces 328 horsepower, but this vehicle is small enough that this engine seems to suite it just fine. The G37 can be equipped with a six-speed manual or 7 speed automatic transmission giving the buyer an option to save some cash or choose to automatic for easy shifting.
The G37 is in the same class as the BMW 3 series and is actually quite a competitor when you look at the specs of each and its much lower price tag. For a midsized sedan the G series offer a very robust engine and power train along with many luxury features on the inside. The exterior offers a new more aerodynamic design than earlier models from Infinity, but the latest G37 models still keep most of the overall body design. With powerful add on options like all wheel drive, the G37 has one heck of a package for a great price.

To commemorate the brand's twentieth year in the U.S., Infiniti is offering Anniversary Editions of the G in all three bodystyles. Painted in a special gray hue and featuring unique red leather trim, the Anniversary Editions come with a seven-speed automatic, navigation, sport package and four-wheel active steer (sedan, coupe), climate-controlled seats (convertible), revised fascias, and new alloy wheels with W-rated summer tires.
Even after a few years on the market, the second-gen G line still looks fresh, what with a wave-style hood, double-arch grille, sweeping character lines, and L-shaped HID headlamps. Sporty wheels, ranging from 17 to 19 inches, complete the sport/luxury image.
Arguably the finest in their class, G interiors come standard with leather trim, power front seats, automatic climate control, aluminum trim, intelligent key, and pushbutton start. Options include Bluetooth, navigation, back-up camera, and heated seats.
Performance & Handling
A 3.7-liter, 24-valve V-6 motivates the various G models, offering specific outputs for each -- 325 horsepower for convertible, 328 for sedan, and 330 for coupe. A six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic are available on all models. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional on coupes and sedans. A front control-arm/rear multi-link suspension and available 19-inch alloys deliver decidedly sporty dynamics.
Standard on all Infiniti Gs are six airbags (dual front, front side, and front/rear curtain), HID headlamps, front-seat active head restraints, and electronic stability control. In case of a rollover, convertibles receive second-row fixed head restraints with pop-up roll bars.
