But the loss of value. Or the image. And only a German dealer. All justified objections to a young, largely unknown brand such as the luxury Nissan offshoot Infiniti. The 4.66 meter long I nfiniti G37 Coupé with the allure of the exotic, without falling out of line with popular rivals like the Audi A5 3.2 or BMW 335i.

Infiniti G37 Coupé is neatly equipped as standard

Even the price is on the same level, but Infiniti is already available for the basic tariff of the Germans the top version with leather, electrically adjustable and heated sports seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, limited-slip differential and all-wheel steering. The tighter it is on the two rear seats, and the flat trunk holds just 275 (Audi 455) liters. In addition, the interior could use more sophistication and finer surfaces, while processing, functionality and clarity please. The same applies to the multi-adjustable, well-profiled sports seats, which offer comfort and firm lateral support in a sporty pace.

For 320 hp, the V6 of the Infiniti G37 Coupé seems powerless

The only available 3.7-liter V6 that thuds discreetly from the two tailpipes, however, does not exactly invite you to do so, because for 320 hp and 360 Nm it looks surprisingly powerless. It only gets the 1.7-ton truck going as expected when it is resolutely turned, which in addition to a strong consumption surcharge (test medium 13.6 L /100 km) also requires muscle on the clutch and six-speed gearbox as well as a firm hand on the valance.

With the Infiniti G37 Coupé you can go on a journey

Apart from The firm damping, which passes through manhole covers and potholes when dry, does not stand in the way of suspension and noise comfort, nor do the powerful, stable brakes. The fact that the wide Bridgestone tires like to follow their own course is not a weakness for individualists anyway, but rather an expression of character.
