Expert Quotes:

The G's interior is sharply styled
Edmunds

Has the look and feel of a true enthusiast vehicle, inside and out
Kelley Blue Book

Shapes that are more angular, less organic
Cars.com

The Infiniti G35’s current shape made its debut only last year, but the styling is still similar to the much-praised previous generation of G35.

The exterior of the 2008 Infiniti G35 in any trim receives high praise in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. The four available trims of the Infiniti 2008 G35 lineup are "base, G35 Journey, G35 Sport 6MT and G35x," according to Edmunds, but Cars.com says that the only major differences are that "the Sport trim level is distinguished by a different front face and side sills" and "steps up to 18-inch rims."

Otherwise, all 2008 Infiniti G35 models share what J.D. Power calls "voluptuous and sensual" styling that creates "a profile that implies an eagerness to achieve velocity." Other reviewers heap praise on the exterior styling as well, with Kelley Blue Book admiring the "well-tailored sheetmetal" that melds "crisp lines and sensual contours into a tasteful yet visually distinctive styling statement." Cars.com reviewers note that one of the most distinguishing characteristics on the 2008 Infiniti G35 sedan is a "character line" that "runs from the front wheel arch and along the door handles and drapes over the rear wheel arch." When viewed from the front, Kelley Blue Book says that the Infiniti G35 features an unmistakable and "eye-catching grille treatment with four sculpted bars that twist from center to edge like traditional Japanese sword blades," along with "flush-fit L-shaped headlights and taillights that flow around the fenders front and rear."

The interior receives accolades from reviewers, though with a few caveats. Kelley Blue Book warns that the "cockpit-like ambiance may strike some as a bit busy," but they also note the "controls are logically arranged and the flashy electroluminescent main gauges are quite legible." However, ConsumerGuide says the "control layout has some small buttons" and "takes some acclimation"; in addition, the "steering wheel rim may block full view of gauges for some drivers." In the criticism department, Kelley Blue Book mentions that the center stack display's "legibility tends to come or go based upon the amount of reflecting sunlight." Edmunds counters, claiming the Infiniti 2008 G35 lineup "offers user-friendly controls" and a "handsome design." They also feel that the Infiniti G35 "provides a refreshingly unique take on cabin decoration."

Conclusion

The 2008 Infiniti G35 sports an eye-catching shape and a well-detailed interior.

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.
