2009 INFINITI G37 Convertible vs. Its Competition

2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Infiniti G37 Convertible stacks up against all these hardtop convertibles with four seats and fine performance, and it’s easily the best-looking of the bunch.

The Volvo C70 springs for a Scandinavian-inspired interior, turbocharged engines, and a great Dynaudio sound system.

The BMW 3-Series Convertible adds about as much weight to its Coupe cousin as does the G37, but its handling is somewhat sharper and its look a little less pleasing.

The VW Eos is a Consumer Reports favorite for its top-down action, dual-clutch transmission, and quality interior trim, but it’s less attractive than the G37 Convertible.

Quick Specs
8.4
The 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe does a neat convertible trick: it keeps all the charm of the Coupe while opening up more to the world outside.
8.2
The 2009 Volkswagen Eos isn't sexy, and it's one of the most practical choices among convertibles and there's a lot to like.
8.6
The 2008 BMW 3-Series sedan has the best overall driving experience in its class and remains the gold standard among mid-size sport sedans.
8.2
The 2008 Volvo C70 feels light and gets lighter with the top down -- just don’t plan on taking many friends or much cargo along for the ride.
