The 2008 Infiniti G35 finds itself in the very fortunate position of not only holding some of the highest possible crash-test ratings from both the NHTSA and the IIHS, but it also comes loaded with safety features. On the Infiniti 2008 G35, it's clear that occupant safety is a top priority.
Unlike its coupe sibling, the 2008 Infiniti G35 has been examined by both major crash-testing authorities in the United States. In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests, the Infiniti G35 earned a perfect five-star rating for front driver impact protection and all manner of side impact protection. The only blemish on the 2008 Infiniti G35's NHTSA record comes from the front passenger impact test, where the Infiniti G35 scored four out of five stars. The Infiniti 2008 G35 scores very well in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests, where the vehicle earned the Institute's highest rating, "good," for both frontal offset and side impact protection. In awarding a "good" rating for frontal offset impact protection, the IIHS says "measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity."
The 2008 Infiniti G35 also sports a variety of safety features that serve to both prevent accidents and improve overall safety in the event of an accident. Edmunds reviewers write that "anti-whiplash front head restraints, traction control and stability control are standard on all G35s," and other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the Infiniti G35 features a full complement of airbags as standard as well. Cars.com notes that the airbag list includes "dual-stage front airbags, side-impact airbags for both front seats, and side curtain airbags that cover the front and rear side windows in a side impact." ConsumerGuide reports that other standard safety features include "antilock 4-wheel disc brakes" with "brake assist."
Also improving overall safety on the 2008 Infiniti G35 is the fact that the visibility from the driver's seat is quite generous. ConsumerGuide says that the visibility is "good in sedans," while Cars.com adds that a "Rearview Monitor shows what's behind the vehicle on the dashboard's optional navigation screen when the automatic transmission is in Reverse," which further improves driver awareness.
