The latest addition to Infiniti's best-selling model, the G-series sedan and coupe, is the 2009 Infiniti G37 sedan, which is nearly unchanged in the styling department compared to the outgoing G35.
TheCarConnection.com's research shows the automotive press is very pleased to find that Infiniti, by and large, leaves the Infiniti G37 sedan's styling untouched. Prospective buyers have the choice of four trim levels for the Infiniti G37, which Cars.com lists as "base, Journey, Sport 6MT and G37x," with the x variant featuring all-wheel drive. For Infiniti's 2009 G37 lineup, Kelley Blue Book finds that the "well-tailored sheetmetal effectively complements the G37 sedan's sporting character" as it tastefully blends "crisp lines and sensual contours" to make a "visually distinctive styling statement." Indeed, the 2009 Infiniti G37 is one of the most instantly recognizable cars on the road; Edmunds reviewers note as much when they contend that the Infiniti 2009 G37 "looks distinctive...from its swoopy exterior styling to its origami paper-inspired 'Washi' aluminum interior trim." Car and Driver also raves about the "crisp styling" on the exterior of the Infiniti G37, which Kelley Blue Book says is highlighted by "an eye-catching grille treatment with four sculpted bars that twist from center to edge like traditional Japanese sword blades."
Infiniti's strong corporate styling language continues inside the cabin of the Infiniti 2009 G37 sedan, where Kelley Blue Book finds "aluminum accent trim textured to resemble traditional Japanese handmade paper." Car and Driver reports that, like the exterior, the interior design is unchanged, with "the only immediately noticeable change [being] the switching of the seat-heater controls from toggle switches to rotary knobs." Otherwise, Car and Driver says, the cool styling elements "and phenomenal steering wheel remain." Other major positives for the interior include the fact that, according to ConsumerGuide, "the navigation system itself is refreshingly easy to use, and many audio and climate functions are separate from it." Overall, Kelley Blue Book feels that the 2009 Infiniti G37's "cockpit-like ambiance may strike some as a bit busy," but at least "the controls are logically arrayed and the flashy electroluminescent main gauges are quite legible."
