Crash-test ratings are the first stop for anyone researching vehicle safety, and the 2009 Infiniti G37 doesn't disappoint in this category. Moving on to safety features, TheCarConnection.com's research shows that Infiniti's 2009 sport sedan offers all the expected safety sentinels to watch over the car.

The Infiniti G37 sedan lineup has been subjected to both NHTSA's and the IIHS's battery of crash tests and emerged with a very strong report card. In NHTSA tests, the 2009 Infiniti G37 earned a perfect five-star rating in both side-impact categories, as well as five stars in the front driver impact category. The only blemish in NHTSA tests came in the front passenger impact test, where the Infiniti G37 scored four out of five stars. The Infiniti 2009 G37 lineup's IIHS tests were equally impressive, with the sedan earning the highest possible rating, "good," in both the frontal offset impact and side impact tests.

Regarding safety features, the 2009 Infiniti G37 sedan comes loaded. Kelley Blue Book states that "standard safety features on all include front, front-side and side-curtain airbags, active front-seat head restraints," and a variety of electronic systems. Cars.com adds that one of the Infiniti G37's unique features is "a preview braking function that preloads the brakes for faster response if a car in front of you slams on its brakes"; other features include a "standard first-aid kit" and "optional rearview camera (not on base model)." Anti-lock brakes are also standard on all of Infiniti's 2009 G37 models.

One important safety feature you might not find listed in a sales brochure is the excellent visibility afforded by the Infiniti G37's design. Edmunds says the "driving position is excellent, with a relatively low cowl that affords a commanding view of the road." Parking lot maneuvers are aided by the available rearview camera, which helps drivers spot small obstructions behind the Infiniti G37.

Conclusion

The 2009 Infiniti G37 sedan puts safety first thanks to its wide range of standard features and a robust structure.

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.
