The 2012 Infiniti G Sedan was launched to critical acclaim, gaining praise for its sleek looks and array of gadgets. Infiniti has been gaining ground in recent years in the ultra-luxury class by providing additional standard features and attracting attention on the road; all for less money than its competitors.
While the entry level G25 (equipped with a 2.5-litre V6 engine that delivers 218-horsepower) probably has sufficient power to satisfy most drivers, the G37 provides a blend of performance, luxury, high-tech features and space that is difficult to match, even among European rivals.
The Infiniti G37 sedan has an impressive 326-horsepower 3.7-litre V6 with VVEL and seven-speed automatic transmission with magnesium paddle shifters. Based on the company’s Front Midship platform (the engine is shifted towards the rear of the engine bay, improving weight distribution), the structure has also been stiffened to present a firm and nimble ride quality.
Highlighted features include Japanese-inspired aluminium or wood trimmings, leather and magnesium accents and comfortable seating that give the G37 sedan a sports-car-like feel. Following significant changes in 2010, the G37 sedan was sold with standard features that in the past were upgrade options. In 2012, the G37 has been repositioned as an upmarket version of other models, and in terms of aesthetics, appointments and speed, it certainly achieves that.
Standing alongside top players in the luxury class, the G37 offers plenty of value for money. Some of its best features include nimble handling, responsive braking (as an aside here: safety is excellent and includes antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front-side airbags and side curtain airbags), muscular engine and impressive gadgetry. Buyers who are eager to see their money well spent can’t go wrong with opting for the Infiniti G sedan.
