SAFETY | 9 out of 10
Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the G37 Coupe or Convertible.
The standard set of safety features outfitted to the G37 Coupe and Convertible explains its high rating by TheCarConnection.com's editors. The Convertible's 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," which are the sole major difference from the Coupe.
Among the optional safety features, ForbesAutos reports, "a Preview Braking function is included with the optional laser-guided Intelligent Cruise Control that automatically pre-pressurizes the brake lines in anticipation of a panic stop." Edmunds says other safety features are available on the "optional Technology Package," which comes with "adaptive headlights and front seatbelts that can better prepare for front occupant safety if a collision is anticipated."
Visibility in the 2010 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. However, Cars.com is quick to point out that although the Infiniti G37 has a "low riding seating position," the generously sized windows help maintain good overall visibility.
Despite the lack of crash-test ratings, the 2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe / Convertible lineup scores well due to its excellent safety features.
