The 2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe and G37 Convertible share running gear and most of their styling, with only the folding hardtop, more curb weight, and some open-air tweaks separating them. Available with a single engine and a choice of transmissions, the 2010 G37 also is offered as an all-wheel-drive coupe. Changes for 2010 are limited to options like a new navigation system, rain-sensing wipers, and an air purifier. Swift performance and great looks make the G37 a natural competitor for the BMW 3-Series, and with a base price in the $35,000 range, the G37 also takes on the new 2010 Audi A5 / Cabriolet lineup, as well as Nissan's own 2010 370Z coupe and convertible.

While both the 2010 G37 Coupe and Convertible are handsome, finely detailed designs, the G37 Convertible is almost better-looking than the Coupe. It has thinner pillars and a little more oomph to its rear end (where the folding hardtop resides), which give it a voluptuousness. It's by far the best-looking folding-hardtop convertible you can buy, with none of the squatness that affects everything from the Volkswagen Eos to the Ferrari California. The Coupe's no slouch, either, with a dynamic look that really gains composure over the prior version, thanks to more gracefully drawn-up headlamps and a curved-up hatch. Automobile says the Coupe "looks muscular and tough in person," and "overall, it's a subtle evolution of a great design." Cars.com cites the "curvaceous body" and describes "one of the more sinister interpretations of the familiar air dam and side portals you see on many cars." The convertible gets even more kudos: "it's an inch wider than the G37 coupe and completely new from the windshield back, even if you'd be hard-pressed to tell with the top up," LeftLane News reports. The folding roof, they note, "retains a coupe-like profile when the top is raised." Autoblog agrees on the G37's "seamless transition from coupe to convertible," and explains how clever engineering avoids the typical folding-hardtop pitfalls: "The trunk doesn't bulge upwards like the visually-challenged Volkswagen Eos thanks to a completely redesigned rear suspension." Jalopnik concurs: "Top up, it's hard to tell it's not a coupe...Top down and you have something even prettier"-and Automobile makes it unanimous when it declares Infiniti "has created a hardtop convertible G37 that has lost almost none of its elegant coupe sibling's visual appeal."

It shares some major mechanical pieces with the Nissan 370Z, but the four-seat G37 two-doors out-suaves that smaller two-seat roadster outside and inside. Both the G37 Convertible and Coupe share a dash covered in lovely soft-touch materials and muted leather, which brush up against aluminum or wood trim and frame a clear, wide set of gauges along with the comparatively uninspiring, orange-LCD graphics of the audio system. Edmunds loves the "user-friendly controls" and "handsome design," though Car and Driver says only that the interior "pleasant enough." Cars.com reports it's "a vast improvement over the first-generation G35." Edmunds comments "soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin transmit a sense of luxury." Kelley Blue Book finds the "seven-inch LCD screen...radiates colorful and attractive graphics that further enhance the new model's more contemporary vibe."

Conclusion

The 2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe / Convertible outshine German competitors with curvaceous styling cues and a richly trimmed interior.

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.
