Nissan says the 2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible will be priced from the low $40,000 range.
The Japanese automaker says the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $43,850 for the G37 Convertible; a Sport edition with a manual transmission is $50 more, at $43,900. That makes it a direct competitor for the likes of the Mercedes-Benz SLK two-seat roadster and the BMW 3-Series Convertible, which has slightly more room for rear-seat passengers. The Volvo C70 and Saab 9-3 Convertible also are close in price and mission to the new Infiniti.
We drove the new Convertible a few weeks ago--and in case you missed our first drive, you'll be interested to find the G37 is a rarity. It's just as good-looking, if not better, than the car that spawned it. It rates near the top of TheCarConnection.com's list of luxury sportscars: overall, it scores 8.4 from our editors, with highlights in styling and features. We found the new convertible’s looks, road manners and interior fittings up to speed—even if back-seat room and a drop in acceleration and handling aren’t quite as satisfying as the less stylish BMW 3-Series Convertible.
The new hardtop convertible goes live at showrooms on June 19th. For more information, go to our 2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible pricing, specifications, and photos page.
