Infiniti ladles on the standard equipment for its luxury coupe and convertible.
"Standard features are plentiful" on the G37 Coupe, says ForbesAutos. "Bi-xenon headlights, keyless ignition, leather upholstery, eight-way driver and four-way passenger power seats," as well as a "CD/MP3 player with satellite radio" are standard, according to Edmunds, along with automatic climate control. Higher trim grades get upgraded audio; a dual-zone climate system; intelligent cruise control; adaptive front lighting; a hard-drive based navigation system; and four-wheel active steering. All-wheel drive is an option.
All 2010 G37 Convertibles come with, of course, the power-folding hardtop. The top's operation is a simple affair, taking "30 seconds to dance elegantly into its hatch," Popular Mechanics reports. When the top goes down, the G37 Convertible adapts; it can be outfitted with "heated and cooled seats...and even a climate-control system that will adjust the fan according to speed." There's also a door-mounted button to lower the roof before entering or after exiting.
Convertibles also get "leather seats, a double-hand-stitched leather steering wheel (with multifunction buttons for audio and cruise control), dual-zone climate control, a rearview monitor system and a six-speaker CD audio system with MP3 and satellite radio capabilities," Edmunds says; XM satellite radio is also standard. Optional in packages are features like Bluetooth, Adaptive Climate Control, a 13-speaker Bose Open Air sound system, and the "optional sport seats...(part of the Sport package)," Edmunds adds, which "offer a superb combination of lateral support and comfort."
Infiniti's navigation and sound system is a favorite at TheCarConnection.com; the nav offers 3D "flyover" views, while the Bose sound system allows easy access to music and playlists without too much wheel-and-button fuss-increasingly rare in imported luxury cars. However, Edmunds wishes for more "audio adjustment options in the G37 convertible, as both the standard system and the optional Bose system give you only treble, bass, balance and fader controls to play with."
