Appearance Updates  - 2011 Infiniti G37 Review - Reviews - Infiniti G

Following a face-lift for last year's sedan, the coupe and convertible get some rhinoplasty themselves for 2011. See the photos at right to compare, or click here for specs and features. Stretching more than 9 inches past the BMW 3 Series, the second-generation G sedan is one of the largest in its segment Ч which makes its narrow, 35.4-foot turning circle all the more impressive. The styling at large Ч vintage Infiniti, with curves aplenty Ч looks distinctly Asian, for better or worse. Overall, the look is wearing OK.

Xenon headlights and 17-inch wheels are standard. Both the Sport and Limited packages include 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and some pretty silly-looking ground effects. The base car looks nowhere near as overwrought.

Introduced two model years back, the G37 convertible has a folding metal hardtop that takes a longish 30 seconds to operate. Check out our review of the 2010 model here.
