The 2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible comes with a long list of standard safety features, but as of yet, it has not been crash-tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The standard set of safety features outfitted to the G37 Convertible explains its high rating by TheCarConnection.com’s editors. The list includes “a four-wheel disc brake system — including antilock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist technology,” according to Edmunds, along with “standard pop-up roll bars.”
Infiniti’s own Web site and press materials cite other standard safety features as including front airbags, both seat-mounted and door-mounted side airbags, stability control, and active head restraints. Safety options include Intelligent Cruise Control with Preview Braking, which uses sensors to establish a safe speed from vehicles traveling further ahead in the same lane.
Visibility in the G37 Convertible is very good, of course, with the top down. With the top up, it’s still better than in the Coupe: “the narrow roof pillar design (required to make it all fit in the trunk) gives the G37 convertible better outward visibility than the coupe even when the top is up,” Edmunds observes.
