2007 Infiniti G Review

By

The 2007 G35 Coupe carries on without the styling upgrades made to its stablemate, the G35 Sedan. Far from dated, the Coupe's sleek styling, intelligently appointed interior and sizzling performance attributes seem at odds with its ridiculously low sticker price, which makes it a thorn in the side of long-time rivals BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Powered by a rev-happy V6 engine and driven by its rear wheels, the G35 Coupe is endowed with the performance attributes so important to enthusiast drivers, yet also has the styling and sophistication to impress those who appreciate the finer things in life. Simply put, the G35 Coupe represents a masterful blend of beauty and brawn, with a hefty dose of reliability and strong resale value tossed in for good measure.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you like traditional rear-wheel-drive performance coupes with all the luxury trappings of a premium sedan, you'll love the G35. Its long hood, short deck and low-to-the-ground stance are ideal for enthusiastic driving.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you're a tall driver, you'll find the G35 Coupe to be a tight fit, even with the driver's seat at its lowest position. Some will lament the lack of a V8 option, but only those who have not experienced the G35's V6.

What's Significant About This Car?

A push-button starter is made standard (not available on models with the manual transmission), as are automatic on/off headlamps.

Driving the G

Driving Impressions Thanks to the G35's standard traction control and excellent brakes, the rear-wheel-drive coupe provides outstanding stability in all driving conditions. The steering may feel a little heavy, but its responsiveness...

to the driver's commands is never in question. The ride is firm and direct, but only when the G35 is equipped with the optional 19-inch wheels and upgraded Sport-Tuned suspension might some people consider it to be on the rougher side.

The G35 can accelerate with such fury it might seem there should almost be a warning label draped across the dash. You'll discover the five-speed automatic does an excellent job of holding its upshifts until every last ounce of torque is milked from the current gear. Of course, true enthusiasts will want to opt for the six-speed manual transmission.

Pop-Up LCD Navigation
The clever pop-up LCD navigation screen keeps the navigation controls separate from the audio controls.

High Center Console
The high center console allows you to rest your arm perfectly in line with the six-speed manual.

2007 Infiniti G Details
2007 Infiniti G photo Interior

Although it lacks the more modern interior of the new G35 Sedan, the execution of the G35 Coupe's interior is still rated as excellent. It is true that some materials have a less-than-luxurious feel, and the power seat controls remain inconveniently placed atop the lower seat cushion. As we mentioned, headroom is a challenge because of the tapered roofline, but the seating is still first-rate. Another nice interior touch is the adjustable pod that houses the instrument gauges—it moves up and down with the tilt wheel.

Exterior

The G35's raked rear end may mean minimal headroom for rear passengers, but it is a positive in the looks and aerodynamics departments. Cargo space is on the small side, but the wide trunk opening, coupled with a deck lid that can open at a 90-degree angle, makes it easy to load large or bulky objects. The big 18-inch alloy wheels look just right on this car, and they actually deliver a fairly comfortable ride.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The G35 Coupe comes with a 275-horsepower V6 (293 horsepower with the six-speed manual), five-speed automatic with manual mode, automatic air conditioning, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), illuminated entry with remote, bi-xenon headlamps, dual heated power mirrors, AM/FM stereo with MP3-compatible six-disc CD changer, side-curtain airbags, front side-impact airbags, leather trimmed eight-way driver and four-way passenger power and heated seats, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with touch controls, tire pressure monitor, 17-inch alloy wheels and power windows.

Optional Equipment

Options include a six-speed manual transmission, Bose audio, power glass moonroof, onboard navigation, 18- and 19-inch wheels, sport suspension, power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, limited-slip rear axle, Rear Active Steer Package and SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

Under the Hood

The G35 offers only one engine choice, but it's one beautiful piece of machinery and without question is one of the best V6 engines on the planet. You'll marvel at the amazing power, and perhaps even more so at the impressive fuel economy.

3.5-liter V6
275 horsepower @ 6200 rpm (automatic), 293 horsepower @ 6400 rpm (manual)
268 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4800 rpm (automatic), 258 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4800 rpm (manual)

"I have 272k miles and counting on my 2003 G35 and still love to drive it like it's brand new. It has provided the best of both worlds as an every day commuter vehicle. Comfront, style and sports car driving all rolled into one. Trust me, anyone that knows me personally can tell you that I like cars that are well balanced (fast, handleling and comfort all rolled into one). I also autocrossed the car for 3 years when I first bought it. The 2003 6MT has no speed or rev limiter and will do the entire 160 on the dash. I recently completed a trip to OH and got 26 MPG on the highway. For the cost versers value; you can't go wrong. I love my G! It's the blue car in the middle. If you see the photo than you'll notice my weekend vehicle uniquely qualifies me to say these things."

"Surprisingly strong, very responsive engine. Quick to answer when the throttle is pushed. Nice, throaty tone to exhaust. Handles fairly well. Road noise almost objectionable, but overlooked because of the other positive features. Comfortable, quality interior. Very reliable, but very expensive if parts are needed."

"I bought this car off the show room floor in 2004. It has been impeccable in every way. Superb performance, and has never needed a single repair. I will be purchasing a new one shortly. This is my third Infinity, and each has been an absolutely outstanding automobile."

"Got this car with 54K and now to 130K. Quiet, powerful and smooth sports sedan. If you want the road feel, buy the BMW but if you want the nice handling and a bit more road isolation, this is the one."
