Safety, Reliability & Pricing

Safety, Reliability & Pricing  - 2010 Infiniti G37 Review - Reviews - Infiniti G

In crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the G37 sedan earned the top score, Good, in frontal and side-impact crashes. It also earned a Marginal rating in rear-impacts, despite having standard active head restraints. IIHS has yet to conduct its latest roof-crush tests on the G37. It also has yet to test the G37 coupe and convertible; because of the unique layout for each body style, the sedan's crash-test results don't apply to the other versions. Standard safety features on all G37s include an electronic stability system, antilock brakes and six airbags. Click here for a full list.

Reliability for the current generation has been good; it's downright excellent for the G37 coupe. The sedan starts in the low-$30,000s, which is competitive with the gaggle of Audi, BMW, Lexus and Mercedes competition albeit that's with their base six-cylinder engines, which the G37's V-6 handily stomps. It's nicely equipped for that price, with a standard automatic transmission, xenon headlights, leather upholstery, eight-way power front seats, single-zone automatic climate control, a CD stereo with an MP3 jack and keyless access with push-button start. Options include heated front seats, a moonroof, a navigation system, a backup camera, USB/iPod connectivity and an upgraded Bose stereo. Getting a six-speed manual requires moving up to the G37 Sport which includes a sport-tuned suspension, bigger wheels and the aforementioned styling revisions but a Sport Package with similar content is also available on the midlevel, automatic-equipped Journey trim. All-wheel drive is available on all but the base G37; the Anniversary trim essentially comes fully equipped.

The G37 coupe and convertible start around $36,000 and $44,000, respectively. Load up the G, and the sedan tops out north of $43,000. The coupe can exceed $50,000, and the convertible the only variant to offer cooled seats can top $55,000.
