Infiniti G37 

  • 2008
  • 330 HP 3.7L
  • 167 mph
Sales of the FX45 soft-roader are strong, the G35 saloon is one of the established players alongside the 3-series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-class, and the new G Coupe has been scalping the 335i in group tests from Florida to California.

The coupe's shocks are tuned a little more aggressively than the sedan's, but the ride is still quite comfortable.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Body style

The previous-generation coupe was far more attractive than its sedan counterpart.
by Car and Driver (Aug, 2007)
The base G37 coupe uses the same suspension settings, 13.0-inch brakes, and 16.4:1 steering ratio as the G35S (sport) sedan, but wears 18-inch wheels wrapped in 225/50 Dunlops and will not offer a rear limited-slip differential.
by MotorTrend (Mar, 2007)
It's a wonderfully capable, fast, drop-dead gorgeous, and luxurious machine that anyone shopping for a sports coupe would be certifiably nuts to ignore.
by Car and Driver (Jun, 2007)

Powertrain

The six-speed manual transmission has been revised as well.
by Car and Driver (Aug, 2007)
Gone is the gear-mesh noise, the buzzing, and the clunking from the transmission tunnel, and the shifter for the G37 Sport's standard six-speed manual has been improved immeasurably.
by Car and Driver (Jun, 2007)
The VQ is smooth again, and the exhaust note is a pleasing burble that's always available with a quick mash of the electronically controlled throttle.
by Car and Driver (Aug, 2007)

Performance

The BMW's also runs with its torque converter locked almost all the time for greater efficiency and sharper performance.
by MotorTrend (Aug, 2007)
But brag they should, as not only are the brakes stellar-exhibiting excellent response and pedal feel and no fade-but so is the car as a whole.
by MotorTrend (Mar, 2007)
Both cars are easy to drive smoothly, at least when braking and turning.
by MotorTrend (Aug, 2007)

Handling

Further, the G37S offers the LSD and an available six-speed manual and four-wheel steering like its sedan counterpart, but takes it a notch higher by adding stiffer springs and dampers, larger anti-roll bars, a quicker 14.7:1 steering ratio, 19-inch wheels with 225/45 front and 245/40 rear Bridgestones, and an Akebono brake system that supersedes the previous Brembo unit.
by MotorTrend (Mar, 2007)
It’s good in the sense that it eliminates understeer and makes the G feel extremely agile, but it can feel a little artificial.
by EVO
Control freaks can shift for themselves, using large paddles fixed to the steering column, but doing so isn't necessary to go fast.
by MotorTrend (Aug, 2007)

Engine

That's plenty to overcome the 3's performance deficit against the G in their last two encounters, but Infiniti has retaliated by stroking its venerable 3.5-liter VQ V-6 to 3.7 liters.
by MotorTrend (Aug, 2007)
The V-6's redline is a lofty 7500 rpm, and usable power is on tap nearly from the get-go.
by Car and Driver (Jun, 2007)
The G37 takes the latest engine improvements a step further and adds variable valve timing and variable lift on the intake side, and the compression ratio increases to 11.0:1.
