2012 Infiniti G37 Overview
The versatile, performance-oriented 2012 Infiniti G37 still comes in any body-style you could want (sedan, coupe, and hard-top convertible) and delivers luxury and an engaged driving experience no matter which variety you choose.
Changes to the 2012 Infiniti G37 include a new Graphite interior color and 18-inch alloy wheels with a dark finish to the Limited Edition, and the addition of a black grille to the Sport Appearance Edition. The coupe remains unchanged, while the convertible adds a spare tire. Competition to the G37 includes the BMW 3-Series, Lexus IS, Audi A4, Acura TSX, and Cadillac CTS.
There are not only many several body types for the G37, but there is an all-wheel-drive version G37x (reviewed separately on this site). The G37 sedan and coupe have a 328-horsepower (330-horsepower on the coupe), 3.7-liter V-6 that generates 269 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to either a standard seven-speed automatic or optional six-speed manual transmission (the coupe is only available with the automatic). The performance-oriented IPL coupe boasts a version of the same engine tuned to deliver 348-horsepower with 276 pounds-feet of torque through an electronically controlled seven-speed automatic or six-speed manual. Fuel efficiency ratings are 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
All 2012 Infiniti G37 models look different with the sedan featuring standard 17-inch alloy wheels and xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, and optional 18-inch alloy wheels and adaptive headlights. The coupe has a tapered rear fascia, while the IPL includes 19-inch rims and a rear spoiler. The G37 convertible can deploy and stow its folding metal hardtop in approximately 30 seconds.
The G37 sedan seats five in standard leather seats, while the coupe and convertible seat four. A six-speaker, USB/iPod-compatible sound system, heated front seats, dual power outside mirrors, automatic dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth® connectivity, push button start, and a seven-inch color display. A hard drive-based touch-screen navigation system with Lane Guidance and 3D building graphics, power sliding moonroof, and 10-speaker Bose sound system are optional. The convertible is available with a Bose Open Air stereo that places speakers near the head restraints, as well as heated and ventilated seats.
Safety features include a rear sonar system, brake assist with Preview Braking, front-seat pre-crash seat belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, active front head restraints, and an electronic stability system. Intelligent cruise control will preload the brakes and tighten the seat belts if it detects slowing objects ahead.
With a variation of body types, engine types, and trim levels, there is most certainly something for everyone with the 2012 Infiniti G37.
