QUALITY | 7 out of 10
The main gauge cluster moves with the tilt steering wheel.
the engine is far raspier than the precision sewing-machine smoothness of either German competitor
lacks some refinement for everyday driving
Top down, you're left with just 2.0 cu ft of cargo space, so pack light.
All G37s lack the overall ride composure of top German rivals.
The G37 Coupe's deep front seats, hooded gauges and a high center console create a cozy--albeit somewhat tight--driving space, trimmed in expensive-feeling wood and aluminum trims.
We prefer the available sport seats, and their wider range of adjustability, and their more snug bolsters. The seating position is low, which cuts rearward visibility down to near zero--and moving the front seats back cuts out what little leg room exists for the small rear buckets. The rear seats are just barely passable for small children, and in convertibles it might as well be called a 2+2 as headroom is so scant with the top up.
Trunk space is very small--think a roller bag and a backpack, so you might end up using part of the back-seat area as cargo space.
Those who plan to cover long highway distances--or even those who have an urban commute on choppy roads--should beware: Just as in the G Sedans, the G37 Coupe and Convertible don't have a very luxury-like ride. Especially with the available 19-inch wheels, ride quality can be nervous and jittery, and there's even more road noise than is typical in a performance-oriented luxury vehicle.
For the most part, the 2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe feels the part of a luxury car--although the harsh ride and noisy interior might be hard to overlook.
