Infiniti G37x Coupe Rutland VT

A powerful engine and a solid chassis make the G37 Coupe an engaging drive. A good selection of standard equipment should help keep prices near the base MSRP, as very few high-priced options are available aside from the Premium Package, which tacks on a ton of goodies (more on that later).

2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe
DriverSide Overview

Now fully entrenched in the battlefield otherwise known as the luxury coupe segment, the Infiniti G37 is focusing on small, subtle improvements to keep itself ahead of the competition. The changes aren’t as drastic as they were a few years back when Infiniti crammed a heavy-hitting 3.7-liter engine into the car’s engine bay, or even as significant as last year’s addition of all-wheel drive to the coupe platform, but when an elegant tapestry is this close to perfection there’s no sense going all Picasso for no apparent reason. As such the improvements are mostly limited to changes in trim packaging, while the most notable addition comes in the form of a new – if not relatively familiar looking –Hard Drive Navigation System. With similar, if not superior power and intriguing options such as Four-Wheel Active Steering, the G37 represents not only one of the segment’s best bargains, but perhaps one of its most entertaining cars as well.

What's to Like
A powerful engine and a solid chassis make the G37 Coupe an engaging drive. A good selection of standard equipment should help keep prices near the base MSRP, as very few high-priced options are available aside from the Premium Package, which tacks on a ton of goodies (more on that later).

What's Not to Like
The Infiniti Controller interactive media system doesn’t come across as intuitive and can be rather cumbersome, especially considering most of the functions can be accomplished in multiple ways. Navigation does not come standard, though the seven-inch color display does.

The Drive:
DriverSide Driving Impressions

The more you drive the G37 Coupe, the more its big V-6 power constantly teases you to mash the throttle. Sudden acceleration is available in any gear thanks to the 3.7-liter, 330 horsepower slug wedged underneath the hood, which delivers surprisingly linear power as the revs climb. Mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission, the G37 is able to manage the sprint from 0-60 in under six seconds and execute pitch-perfect downshifts thanks to its rev-matching technology. Infiniti Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) is on hand to correct any overcommitted mistakes, but disengaging the system won’t send you careening off the road, such is the resolve of the all-wheel drive. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to tell if the system was even deactivated. The suspension is softer than that of the G37 Sport, but still has a firm feel to it, resulting in direct steering that never comes across jerky over rough surfaces.

Engine and Drivetrain
Still one of the best powerplants in the entire automotive industry, the G37’s V-6 engine has a delightfully tinny exhaust note unlike any other. The 3.7-liter V-6 puts down 330 hp and 270 lb-ft of...
