Inside, the 2013 Infiniti G37 Coupe and Convertible invite conflicting impressions; at times they feel like dressed-up sports coupes, while at other times they feel like particularly lean and edgy luxury cars. In truth, they're a little bit of both. With their low seating position, deeply bolstered front seats, hooded gauges, and high center console, the two-door 2013 G37 models have a cozy but tight driving space—and if it weren't for the expensive-feeling wood and aluminum trims, it would feel as if you were in a pure-bred sports car.There are two sets of seats on offer in these models, and we prefer the available sport seats for their wider range of adjustability and more snug bolsters. The low seating position does frees up the headroom for taller drivers, although it may leave shorter pilots with outward visibility issues. In back, there are just two small buckets—even smaller in Convertible models—and in either case these are barely passable for small children. With the top up in the Convertible, think of these more as an auxiliary cargo shelf, as headroom becomes extremely limited.
You might just end up stashing some of your stuff in the back seat of the Coupe, too, as In either case trunk space is quite small—think a roller bag and a backpack.
The Infiniti G37 Sedans tend to be quite noisy inside, and a little more jittery in ride quality than most other luxury-brand models in this class. The same holds true for the G37 Coupe and Convertible. Ride quality and noise—considering all the road coarseness that makes its way into the cabin—are going to be turnoffs to some luxury-car shoppers, while those who have owned stiff performance cars before won't think there's anything out of the ordinary. Anyone who's hesitant about the road noise should drive both the base setup and models with the available 19-inch wheels and sport suspension, as the latter does add even more interior harshness.
The two-door Infiniti G37 models' harsh ride and noisy interiors might be hard to overlook; otherwise they're luxury cars through and through.
