The 2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe has performance that borders on brilliant, with a level of driver involvement only rivaled by the BMW 3-Series; although not the same can be said about the G37 Convertible.

Expert Quotes:

These coupes are grippy and agile, with little lean in corners.
Consumer Guide

its steering, which at first seems to be artificially cursed with too much effort, comes alive at speed to inform its driver precisely how much cornering grip remains at the front tires
Edmunds' Inside Line

The brakes are spectacular, and the suspension supremely manages to keep the car flat on hard corners and balanced even when you have to dump the throttle under hard acceleration.
AutoWeek

The new seven-speed auto tranny is a jewel: responsive, crisp, always in the right gear
Motor Trend


The 2012 G37 Coupe rides on a version of the same platform that underpins the longer G37 sedan and the shorter Nissan 370Z, and all versions sport a 3.7-liter V-6.

In the G37 Coupe, the engine makes 330 horsepower, and winds up to a 7500-rpm redline; while the engine seems to have infectious enthusiasm, it gets a little coarse in those upper ranges. We'd be satisfied with either the six-speed manual or the seven-speed automatic, though the throttle-blipping, paddle-shifted automatic seems a more natural fit for this Infiniti's mission. A 0-60 mph run of about 5.5 seconds is promised.

The Coupe's confident rear-drive handling is highlighted by very good steering, though it may be a touch less communicative than that in the sedan. The ride's very well damped in standard versions; it gets a little choppy the 19-inch wheels of the Sport package are added. Overall grip is quite good, but all-wheel drive is an option, a rarity in the class. There's not much space between BMW's sporty coupes and those from Mercedes-Benz these days, but the G37 Coupe lands squarely in the middle.

One model that especially stands out from a performance perspective is the G37x Coupe AWD, which utilizes Infiniti's ATESSA E-TS all-wheel-drive system found on other Infiniti models. It's an excellent system that's proactive and helps maximize stability when cornering.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe has performance that borders on brilliant, with a level of driver involvement only rivaled by the BMW 3-Series; although not the same can be said about the G37 Convertible.

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.
