2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe AWD--photos
Equally appealing to geeks and gearheads, the Infiniti 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.
Although the 2009 Infiniti G37 features the same 3.7-liter heart as the Nissan 370Z, the vehicles serve different purposes. If the Z is an athlete, the G37 is that same athlete in a suit. Don't make the mistake of thinking it can't move, just because it's suited up.
The G's suspension features a dual flow path suspension that does double duty of remaining firm in the turns and soaking up bumps without drama. Some sort of adjustable suspension would be better, but this one does the job.
The seven-speed automatic transmission features a Sport mode that holds the revs longer and blip rev-matches on the downshifts. Unfortunately, the slow shifts don't really fit with the G's sporty character.
As climates get colder, you'll be seeing a lot of this console. Here you'll find the heated seat controls and the switch to put the all-wheel drive system into snow mode, which evenly distributes power to all four wheels by default.
