Expert Quotes:

There's no discernible difference in steering weight and feedback or suspension damping.
Edmunds' Inside Line

True, the G25 will never catch a G37 in a drag race. But if we judge performance on sound alone, if we could choose one engine over the other to listen to—we'd pick the G25's 2.5-liter V6.
Popular Mechanics

Braking, steering and handling performance remain pure Infiniti – always impressing
Autoblog

the G25 drives pretty much how it could be expected to -- like a G37 that's down more than 100 horsepower and just under 100 pound-feet of torque.
Motor Trend

snappy braking and crisp cornering that keep it among top-tier sports sedans
USA Today

The 2012 Infiniti G37 is one of the most responsive, communicative, and fun-to-drive sport sedans in its class. With a near-ideal weight distribution, a well-tuned suspension, and steering that even the most demanding enthusiasts will like, there's a lot to love here from a driver's perspective.

Infiniti's 3.7-liter V-6 is a little too raucous for some luxury-performance tastes--and not nearly as smooth as BMW's excellent turbocharged six--but it has enough muscle to satisfy rabid performance enthusiasts. A base G25 model gets a 218-hp, 2.5-liter V-6 that's smooth, by most accounts, but doesn't give nearly as strong of a performance kick. Shift quality with the seven-speed automatic transmission in the G37 Sedan (the only transmission in the G25) is somewhat lumpy and indecisive in gentle driving, but it becomes snappy and smooth when accelerating hard; magnesium paddle-shifters and a smart throttle blip for downshifts when driving hard makes the combination all the more satisfying--though the six-speed manual is great as well.

Price no object, the G is also quite possibly the best-handling sport sedan. Even on less-than-perfect surfaces, the suspension is hard to fluster and brakes are stout. In particular, the G sedans manage to get steering feel just right; the quick-ratio system unwinds smoothly, loads evenly, and transmits some surface feedback, as a good sport sedan should.

 

 

Conclusion

The 2011 Infiniti G37 delivers top-notch performance that should satisfy the most demanding enthusiasts.

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.
