It's easy to focus on the BMW 3-Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class or the Audi A5 when shopping for a luxury sport coupe. In doing so, though, you would be overlooking a hidden gem of a car.
The Infiniti G37x is based on the Nissan 370Z platform, and powered by a fierce 3.7-liter V6 engine that produces 330 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control is standard, as is all-wheel drive. Fuel economy is what you would expect: and the G37x gets an estimated 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
The interior doesn't quite match the standard set by Mercedes-Benz and BMW, but it comes close. Aluminum or optional wood trim makes for an attractive cabin. Controls and the display screen are easy to use, and the iPod interface is particularly impressive. Cargo space is extremely limited, though the folding rear seat helps. Think of the G37x as a two-passenger coupe that can carry a couple extra friends in a pinch.
On the road, the G37x really shines. The vehicle accelerates with startling speed and the seven-speed transmission shifts at the appropriate time -- even on the downshift. Both road noise and engine noise are noticeable, but that's not unusual in sport coupes. The all-wheel drive and smooth handling make the G37x a breeze on tight, windy roadways. Steering is precise, and the suspension handles the rough pavement with ease.
Overall the G37x remains a solid choice for those in the market for a sports coupe: the list of options and features is substantial; the engine is powerful; and the exterior is sleek and attractive.
Standard features on the Infiniti G37x are plentiful and include: heated eight-way power front seats, automatic xenon headlights, keyless entry and ignition, cruise control, heated mirrors, leather upholstery, auto-dimming rear view mirror, 18-inch alloy wheels, tilt-and-telescoping steering, a color display screen, Bluetooth connectivity, a rear-view camera and a six-speaker sound system with a six disc CD changer, auxiliary audio input jack, iPod interface.
Options groups include: the Premium Package with a sunroof, power tilt and telescoping steering, lumbar support for the driver's seat, rear parking sensors, driver seat memory and an 11-speaker Bose audio system; the Navigation Package adds a touchscreen, real-time traffic, real-time weather, Bluetooth audio, voice controls, media playback and a navigation system; the Sport Package has 19-inch wheels, performance tires, a sport tuned suspension, sport tuned steering, upgraded brakes, front sport seats, adjustable bolsters with thigh support, a limited-slip differential and aluminum pedals; finally there's a Technology Package which can be purchased in conjunction with all the other packages and adds adaptive cruise control, automatic wipers, automatic climate control and a pre-collision seat belt system.
