2013 Infiniti G37 Overview
The G37 comes as a sedan, a coupe and a folding-hardtop convertible. The sedan and coupe come with rear- or all-wheel drive; the convertible is rear-drive only. The sedan has room for five while the other body styles can hold up to four people. Competitors include the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, as well as the Lexus IS, Cadillac CTS and Audi A4.
New for 2013
Infiniti has revised the model offerings for 2013. The G37 Sport Appearance Edition and Limited Edition sedans are gone, leaving three sedans for 2013: Journey, Sport 6MT and all-wheel-drive G37x.
The G37 sedan features headlights that sweep back along the car, as well as a curved hood and large grille. Exterior features include standard xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels, while adaptive headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels are optional.
The G37 sedan seats five, though the rear center position is uncomfortable. Infiniti does not offer a folding backseat, something that competitors like the 3 Series and C-Class do. Standard interior features include standard leather seats and a six-speaker, USB/iPod-compatible stereo. Optional are a Bose premium stereo and a navigation system with Bluetooth streaming audio.
Under the Hood
The G37 sedan's 3.7-liter V-6 makes 328 horsepower and 269 pounds-feet of torque. Mechanical features include astandard seven-speed automatic transmission (available six-speed manual) and rear- or all-wheel drive.
The G37's optional adaptive cruise control can alert the driver, preload the brakes and tighten the seat belts if it senses rapidly decelerating traffic ahead. Standard safety features include six airbags, active front head restraints, four-wheel antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system.
The G37 coupe gets stronger engines than the sedan and comes with rear-wheel drive or, on the G37x, all-wheel drive. The Journey and G37x come with a seven-speed automatic; the Sport 6MT has a six-speed manual; and the IPL offers a choice of automatic or manual.
The G37 convertible has a three-piece folding metal hardtop that deploys or stows in about 30 seconds, unique (from the coupe) body panels from the windshield forward and rear pop-up roll bars. All models have rear-wheel drive.
In the base and Sport 6MT models, the 3.7-liter V-6 makes 325 hp. The base has a seven-speed automatic and the Sport a six-speed manual transmission. High-end features include available heated and ventilated seats and a Bose stereo that places speakers on each side of the front head restraints.
