The Infiniti G35 badge represents a sports sedan and a sport coupe, both based on the stellar rear-wheel-drive Nissan 350Z sports car. And the 2004 Infiniti G35 sedan is available with all-wheel drive. The rear-wheel-drive G35 sedan was introduced in March 2002, representing an affordable alternative to the BMW 3 Series sedans. It was followed by the G35 coupe, a luxurious and practical version of the Z. The new G35X borrows its , all-wheel-drive setup from the superb Infiniti FX luxury crossover vehicles. The G35 sedan boasts all the hallmarks of a true sports sedan: powerful engine, rear-wheel drive, sports suspension, performance tires, excellent brakes, balanced weight distribution, and a driver-oriented cockpit. It handles better than most front-drive sedans and it boasts more horsepower than the rear-wheel-drive BMW 330i, Lexus IS 300, and Mercedes-Benz C320. Infiniti's daring design, with stacked headlamps, catamaran fenders, and short overhangs give the G35 a unique look we find appealing. It's also practical, offering more interior space than other cars in the near-luxury class. Best of all, it costs less than the BMW, Lexus, or Mercedes. The G35 coupe is essentially a longer, more luxurious GT version of the Nissan 350Z. It's longer than the Z, has a trunk instead of a hatchback, and it has a rear seat that can be used to transport the smaller members of the family.
