29th November, 2012

Infiniti, Nissan's performance luxury brand from Japan, has announced prices and equipment for its G37 Coupe and G37 Convertible models which are due for local release in the coming weeks priced from $75,900*.

They will join the company’s recently released Australian market launch models, the FX performance cross-over and the Infiniti M sports sedan.

“The Infiniti G37 Coupe and Convertible represent Infiniti’s next important step in Australia,” said Kevin Snell, General Manager of Infiniti Cars Australia. “These two cars open Infiniti to another vital segment within the Australian luxury car market and expand the scope of our ability to offer luxury car buyers a long-awaited new choice.”

“These two exciting sports cars embody Infiniti’s performance luxury credentials by packaging dynamic handling with technology, comfort and quality in an athletic yet elegant design. These are luxury cars for drivers.”


Both of these soon-to-be-released Infiniti models are powered by a 3.7-litre petrol V6 engine featuring VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) technology, producing a maximum power output of 235 kW and a peak torque of 360 Nm. The standard-fitment transmission is a seven-speed automatic equipped with Adaptive Shift Control, Downshift Rev Matching and magnesium paddle shifters to make driving smooth and enjoyable. A Viscous Limited-Slip Differential (VLSD) is available for the G37 Coupe.

Chassis and suspension

Underpinning the dynamic performance of the Infiniti G37 Coupe and Convertible is the marque’s driver-oriented Front Mid-Ship platform. This rear-wheel drive design sees the engine placed further back in the chassis to optimise weight distribution for improved handling. The combination of a double-wishbone front suspension design and a multi-link rear lay out, along with carefully tuned suspension geometry, helps deliver responsive handling and impressive ride comfort. Lightweight alloy wheels in both 18-inch and 19-inch designs are available.

Responsive steering is delivered by a vehicle-speed-sensing steering design, providing drivers with great feel and optimum steering effort at low and high vehicle speeds.

Available on the G37 Coupe is Infiniti’s exclusive 4-Wheel Active-Steer System (4WAS). This combines a unique chassis configuration equipped with variable front steering ratios and rear suspension geometry that adjusts to steering input and vehicle speed via motor-driven controls. The system’s electronic control unit calculates the desired vehicle dynamics from a series of sensors, including vehicle speed and steering angle, and separately directs both the front and rear actuators to change steering gear ratios and rear geometry by moving both the front steering gear and rear suspension lower links – thus enhancing the coupe’s sports car-like agility and secure stability.

S Premium grades of the G37 Coupe and Convertible are fitted with aluminium four-piston (front) and two-piston callipers (rear) embossed with Infiniti lettering and large ventilated rotors – 14.0-inch front and 13.8-inch at the rear.

Exterior design

Externally, the G37 Coupe and Convertible wear a sharp, kinetic design with elegant and sophisticated proportions. L-shaped High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated fog lamps feature at the front. At the rear, both models feature broad rear mudguards that flow into large LED taillights, an Infiniti trademark; an available integrated RearView Monitor camera; rear under-body air diffusers and large dual exhaust outlets with chrome finishers.

The G37 Convertible uses a three-piece retractable hard-top roof that takes it from closed-roof coupe to open-top convertible at the touch of a button. When closed, the G37 Convertible has a coupe-like silhouette similar to that of its hard-top 'sibling'.


Both cars have a sophisticated, luxurious interior with a cockpit-oriented driver and front passenger area. A ten-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is standard fitment alongside an eight-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. The stylish instrument binnacle features electro-luminescent instruments coloured in white and violet. Both models have comfortable rear seating, giving sports car enjoyment for more than just two people. Leather upholstery is fitted to all model grades.
