TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The Basics:

TheCarConnection.com's editors drove the new Infiniti G37 Coupe in order to give you an expert opinion. TheCarConnection.com also researched available road tests on the new Infiniti G37 Coupe to produce this conclusive review and to help you find the truth where other reviews might differ.

Introduced last year and available in three different models (base, Journey, and Sport), the Infiniti G37 Coupe is joined by a fourth model for 2009, the G37x Coupe AWD. The new coupe utilizes Infiniti’s ATESSA E-TS all-wheel-drive system found on other Infiniti models.

The 2009 coupe's engine received a boost to 330 horsepower last year; redline is a high-revving 7,500 rpm. A new seven-speed automatic transmission with Drive Sport (DS) Mode and Downshift Rev Matching enhances the driving experience, working with electronic controls that help the box shift smarter, especially on the track where the downshift rev-matching keep the chassis balanced and the engine in the power band.

Compared to the Nissan 350Z, with which the G37 shares some unseen mechanicals, the G37 is far more suave outside and inside, with two additional seats in back. But honestly, while the G37’s front seats are very comfortable, the rear ones are nearly useless.

The 2009 Infiniti G37 comes with a stiff chassis, double-wishbone front suspension, a multilink arrangement out back, and stabilizer bars at both ends. At the corners are massive disc brakes. Base models get 13-inch platters all around, while 14-inch (front) and 13.8-inch units are used on the Sport 6MT variant. Covering the discs are aluminum 18-inch rims on the base, and 19-inch rims for the Sport 6MT.

Directing all this high technology is rack-and-pinion steering gear with electric, as opposed to hydraulic, assist. The feel of the steering isn’t ideal, however. On the track, it sometimes varies the effort unexpectedly, which is disconcerting. Roadholding is fantastic, while the ride is a bit nervous, thanks to big tires and a short wheelbase.

The 2009 G37 Coupe is as well-equipped as luxury coupes typically come, and the standard feature list includes automatic climate control, an intelligent key, and leather upholstery. Journey models get upgraded audio and a dual-zone climate system, and enable tech options like intelligent cruise control, adaptive front lighting, a hard-drive based nav system, and four-wheel active steering. A self-healing clearcoat finish called Scratch Shield paint helps make the G37 more appealing. 2009 models also feature a redesigned dial-type seat heater switch and automatic speed-sensing power door locks.
