Edmunds' Inside Line
Infiniti has carried the look of the G35 into the G37 and pushed it a little further
The only way you'd know this is a convertible is when the top opens.
The strange proportions common to retractables built on coupe architecture don't afflict the G; it's nicely balanced from any angle
Nissan's engineers and designers worked hand-in-hand to mold the G37 Convertible's shape, avoiding the bulbous back-side that plagues most coupes called to cabrio duty (and our fictional assistant).
In design, the G37 Coupe--even more so than its hardtop convertible companion--is one of the few two-doors that can rival the likes of the BMW 3-Series, maybe with a dash less of mid-life crisis.
It looks mature in the right ways, with a tailored, neat appearance that blends elegance with sporty proportions and cues. It's built from the same platform as the shorter, more evocative Nissan 370Z, and it's a rare case where there's truly a lot of distinction between the cars, with the G37's extra length going to a real pair of rear seats, and its more sublime details going more for an upscale appearance. In all, the G Coupe could be seen as either a softer, more understated sports car or a more edgy luxury coupe.
With thinner pillars and a little more oomph to its rear end (where the folding hardtop resides), the G37 Convertible has a voluptuousness that the Coupe doesn't have. 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 cabin keeps pace with the exterior, with a sedate, well-finished cockpit, lots of lovely soft-touch materials, rich leather, and a choice of deeply stained rosewood trim or softly brushed aluminum.
Handsome and well-detailed, the 2012 G37 Coupe and Convertible are understated as sports cars or edgy as luxury cruisers.
