The entry-luxury INFINITI G has been a staple of the INFINITI lineup since the brand's inception in 1990. It entered its fourth generation in 2008 as the G37, and added a hardtop convertible to the model mix the following year. A compact rear-driver, the drop-top G scores high on power—330 horsepower—and is tuned for spirited driving even with the base suspension.
The retractable steel top adds security and quiet, but seriously reduces interior space. The rear seat looks like a padded shelf, and the trunk holds a laughable two cubic feet with the top down. The star of the line is the high-performance IPL model with 348 horsepower, a firmer suspension and unique trim pieces.
