There are so many ways to describe the 2010 Infiniti G37 Convertible Sport 6MT, and we heard all sorts of compliments as we were test-driving the vehicle. One common reaction involves the open mouth with the jaw dropping. Others just say "WOW." We were just as impressed as the casual observers, so if you're considering a luxury vehicle, we strongly recommend that you put the 2010 Infiniti G37 Convertible Sport 6MT on your list!
The 2010 Infiniti G37 Convertible Sport 6MT we tested was Vibrant Red, which really made the car look sleek and classy. The 3-piece power retractable hardtop was easy to use, as you just press one button and it takes all of 30 seconds to lift or drop the top. Watching it in action is reminiscent of a Transformer ready to change up for the next adventure. The 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels with P225/45R19 front and P245/40R 19 rear tires were in a league of their own as they gave the G37 both an elegant and muscular look that was right on the mark and what you would expect from Infiniti.
When you first enter the G37, you feel the luxury appointments from Infiniti immediately, from the leather seats, 7-inch color display monitor in dash, leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter along with the silk obi-finish aluminum finish. The seats were very comfortable and easy to maneuver for the folks getting in and out of the reasonably spacious back seats. We appreciated the power tilt telescopic steering wheel as it felt like the whole dash was adjusting to your driving comfort. The Bose open air sound system in the cabin was clear and powerful, especially when listening to the XM Satellite radio. There is also a 2.0GB Music Box with 800MB storage, USB connection port for iPod interface and other sources. The Navigation system was easy to operate with a touch screen and more options than you can imagine.
Our G37 MT had a 3.7 Liter DOHC 24-valve VVEL V6 engine that produced a smooth 325 Horsepower and 267 lb-ft torque. Gas mileage came in at 16mpg city and 24mpg highway, and could be considerably better with "softer" driving. The vehicle is a true sports car so it of course is rear wheel drive with a 6-speed manual transmission with independent front and rear suspension. The sport brakes with 4-piston front and 2-piston rear calipers are probably some of the strongest and easiest brakes you'll ever press your feet upon! We effortlessly shifted between gears and even when hitting decent speeds (cough, cough), the ride was tight with the beefed up independent suspension working like a charm. We were impressed with the handling and overall performance, but if you're looking for a soft and smooth ride in a luxury vehicle, this may not be your best option. It's a better choice for someone looking for a sportier version of a luxury vehicle.
