2009 Infiniti G37x Coupe (review)

Equally appealing to geeks and gearheads, G37 Coupe combines an athletic presence, a high level of performance, and a complete cabin tech package into a vehicle that's attractive from almost every angle.

Cruising the freeway in the 2009 Infiniti G37x Coupe, we were impressed by the level of luxury and refinement. Over the highway's sweeping turns and long straights, the G Coupe was proving to be quite the Grand Tourer, smoothing out the bumps and damping out much of the road and wind noise.

From our heated leather-trimmed seats, we were guided to our destination by Nissan/Infiniti's excellent hard drive-based navigation system, which also served up tunes from its 9.3GB MusicBox or our connected iPod.

Veering from the major traffic artery, the G37 revealed its sports car roots on a windy back road. Its powerful 3.7-liter V-6 singing a throaty exhaust note as the rear-biased all-wheel drive system and firm suspension allowed a level of nimbleness that betrayed the Coupe's largish size.
