Pricing and specification details of the Infiniti G37 Coupe and Convertible have been released ahead of the rear-wheel-drive two-door models’ arrival in Australian showrooms from late next week.
Two variants of the Infiniti G37 Coupe, the $75,900 GT Premium and $83,500 S Premium, are joined by the sole $87,900 S Premium variant of the G37 Convertible in the three-pronged Japanese luxury sports car line-up.
While new to our market, both cars have been available overseas for a number of years, with the G37 Coupe entering production in 2007 and the Convertible joining it in 2009.
Both the Coupe and Convertible G37 are powered by the same 235kW/360Nm 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine with VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) and feature a seven-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift control, downshift rev matching and magnesium paddle shifters as standard.
Targeting responsiveness and comfort, the Infiniti G37 combines a vehicle-speed-sensing steering system with double-wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear.
A viscous limited-slip differential and Infiniti’s Four-Wheel Active-Steer System (4WAS), which electronically alters front steering gear and rear suspension links for enhanced agility and stability, are also available for the G37 Coupe. Lightweight 10-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels are standard fitment on the base GT Premium Coupe, with the Convertible’s standard 19-inch alloy wheels also available on the hardtop as part of the S Premium package.
Sitting inside the wheels of all S Premium grade models are 355mm front and 350mm rear brake discs with ‘Infiniti’ embossed aluminium four-piston (front) and two-piston (rear) calipers.
High-Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-xenon headlights, integrated fog lights, and LED tail-lights feature as standard on both the fixed roof Coupe and drop-top Convertible, with a reversing camera, rear under-body diffuser, and large chrome-finished dual exhausts available as options.
Inside, both cars receive a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and eight-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, with leather upholstery fitted to all model grades. A seven-inch high-resolution colour touchscreen display, 30GB HDD navigation system, and iPod/USB and Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming also feature.
While the G37 Coupe keeps its occupants entertained via an 11-speaker Bose sound system, the Convertible scores a 13-speaker Bose Open Air Sound system that automatically optimises equaliser settings for open and closed roof situations – taking 25 seconds to switch between with the three-piece retractable hard-top roof.
Standard safety equipment includes driver, front passenger, side and curtain airbags, seat belt pretensioners, front seat active head restraints, and dual pop-up roll bars (G37 Convertible only).
Other options available under the Coupe’s S Premium and Convertible’s $2000 S Premium Monaco Red package include Monaco Red leather upholstery matched to red-stained Maple wood trim, sports-tuned suspension, tyre pressure monitors, a 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with thigh extensions, rear spoiler, and red ‘S’ badging.
The new Infiniti G37 Coupe and G37 Convertible will take the luxury Japanese brand’s local line-up to four cars joining the currently available Infiniti FX SUV and Infiniti M sedan.
