Safety  - 2012 Infiniti G37 Review - Reviews - Infiniti G

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, the 2012 Infiniti G37 coupe received the highest score, Good, in frontal offset and side-impact tests. It scored Acceptable in roof strength and Marginal in rear-impact testing.

The G37 comes standard with a full complement of airbags including front, front-seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side curtain airbags for front and rear seats. As is required of all 2012 models, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard. Click here for a full list of safety features.

The G37's fetching curves come at the price of visibility. A small, dramatically raked rear window, thick pillars and narrow side windows compromise visibility. The IPL's standard backup camera improves matters, but it could really use a blind spot warning system; one isn't available. Adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning is optional on other versions of the G37 but unavailable on the IPL model.
