By Bill Clark

Pros:

  • Blazing acceleration
  • Sports-car-like handling and braking
  • Comfortable seating for four adults

Cons:

  • Sports-car-like ride all the time
  • Sluggishly-programmed paddle shifters
  • Addicting to drive fast

With a penchant for sports cars and a baby on the way, what’s a guy to do? I do love my 2007 350z, but how practical is it? Is there anything out there with 4 doors that could take its place? There really wasn’t anything I could think of with four doors that would foot the bill. That was, until I spent some quality time behind the wheel of a 2011 Infiniti G37 sedan. That’s right – 4 doors and a lot of fun!

2011 Infiniti G37 Sport Review – A coupe joins the league of extraordinary gentlemen

Tuesday May 10th, 2011 at 1:55 PM

2011 Infiniti G37 Coupe Sport
By contributing editor David Colman

Hits:

  • Inconspicuously Fast
  • Affordable
  • Handsome

Misses:

  • Pretext back seat
  • Weak XM SAT reception
  • Stick Shift Vibrations

The Infiniti G37 Sport is Nissan’s gentrified version of the 370Z. Its defanged appearance is the perfect antidote to the Z’s frontal overbite. Its Gentleman’s Club interior reconstitutes the Z car’s objectionably plastic cabin into a mature environment replete with dual zone climate control, power adjustments for steering wheel position, and infinitely configurable leather sport seats . But the G37 coupe has lost none of the Z’ intense sporting character as a result of the cosmetic transformation. The Infiniti’s 3.7 liter V6, good for 330hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, rivals the identical power plant in the Z for brisk acceleration. The 6-speed manual transmission shifts with precision and alacrity. The stick is short, the leather festooned knob a pleasure to hold. The G37S will run the quarter mile in under 14 seconds at over 105mph, and complete the 0-60mph sprint in just 5.4 seconds.

2011 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI quattro Review – An intoxiating mix of performance, luxury and price

2011 Audi A4

By Peter Newton

Driving Impressions: 2011 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro Tiptronic Sedan

Pros:

  • Swift and sure-footed
  • Powerful yet sophisticated driving- and design!
  • Above average technology integration

Cons:

  • Few and far between (and relatively minor)
  • Functional, but basic Navigation system
  • Narrow trunk limits what it can store

Competitors in the luxury sport car segment vie to provide what I consider the perfect car: a powerful and stylish coach loaded with creature comforts, yet compact and nimble to provide a thrilling ride. They are small enough to offer tight handling, yet roomy enough to fit four adults. The BMW 3-series has ruled this segment in the US market recently, fending off challenges from Lexus, Mercedes, Infinity, Cadillac, and Acura. Audi’s new A4 looks like a strong contender on paper, but can it deliver the goods?

2009 Infiniti G37 Sedan
By Mary-Ellen Ash

Yays:

  • A rocket-car with superb engine power and acceleration
  • Big brakes for excellent braking control
  • Tight, crisp steering
  • Spacious and comfortable interior
  • Large boot cargo hold

Nays:

  • Stiff suspension for a luxury sports sedan
  • Can’t extend limited trunk space by folding down the rear seats

An Infiniti car can always be seen out on the local roads and highways. They always receive strong reviews and compliments in many magazines and websites. Once I got into the G37, I understood all the hype. The Infiniti G37 is a stylish and powerful sedan with all its features adding up to a very attractive package. All the attention to details that went into designing and building this car are what makes this car so appealing.

Bloomingdale's Is Now An Infiniti Dealer?

Wednesday November 5th, 2008 at 12:1111 PM
Posted by: tonyb

Well, if you believe the press release, it would seem so. The headline reads: “Limited Edition Infiniti G37 Convertible Premier to be sold through Bloomingdale’s”.

Wha? OK, I guess that’s not all that way out or anything, Neiman-Marcus sells limited edition BMWs now and again, and hey, it IS a version of car that at best can be described as being a boulevardier.

An Infiniti G37 convertible, limited edition or not, is not the kind of car you’re going to take out for a blast up the coast highway some early Sunday morning. No, this is the kind of car that you and your 3rd (maybe 4th) trophy wife take out for for that charity benefit for Sir Denis Eton-Hogg’s Hoggwood: Summer Camp For Pale Young Boys.

2008 Infiniti G37 – Racing Infiniti's Red Rocket

2008 Duel-at-De Anza autocross course
By Alex Kramer

Every year at the college where I work the auto-tech program hosts an autocross, the “Dual at De Anza.” For years I’ve contemplated entering the event, but either lacked the courage or the right car to do so. When I heard that CarReview.com would be testing a 2008 Infiniti G37 on the weekend of this year’s race, I gave Derek a call and with his blessing entered both of us.

As far as luxury sports coupes go, the Infiniti G37 is a fine example of how impressive this class of automobiles has become. Combining the refinement of the finest luxury sedans with some serious horsepower and handling prowess, the G37 feels most at home cruising down the highway at a high rate of speed. Would this large coupe have the right balance of power and cornering agility for the tight confines of an autocross course? We would soon find out.

2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible

The all-new G37 Convertible, the first-ever open-air G, is set for a mid-2009 model year introduction. Based on the current G37 Coupe, the G Convertible promises stunningly seductive styling and G-worthy dynamic performance.

The all-new Infiniti G37 Convertible is set to make its world debut at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Sales of this sleek and sexy roadster begin nationwide in early 2009.

2008 Infiniti G37 – The European Sports Coupe NOT from Europe

Thursday October 4th, 2007 at 9:1010 PM
Posted by: torbach1

2008 Infiniti G37
by Tamir Orbach

Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Even better acceleration than the ’07 G35
  • Handles and feels like a true sports car and easily up to par with competing BMW sports coupes and sedans
  • Very comfortable sports seats
  • Intuitive controls
  • Lots of standard features and great options
  • Killer sound system
  • Price

Cons:

  • Fit and finish much improved over ’07 coupe, but not yet up to par with BMW (very close though) and definitely not up to par with Audi (whose interiors I consider to be the best in the business)
  • Rear seat is useful only for sado-masochistic adults, small children, or Dobby the house elf, with difficult ingress and egress from rear seat
  • Trunk size is fairly small even for a sports coupe
  • Auto box needs a 6th gear for highway driving
