The 2012 Infiniti G sedan offers a new Malbec Black exterior color. The G37 sedan also receives various updates to its Limited and Sport Appearance editions, including a new graphite interior color, 18-inch alloy wheels and Black Obsidian exterior color for the Limited Edition and a new black grille for the Sport Appearance Edition.
For 2010, Infiniti makes some interior modifications, including new gauge color and center console design, new interior colors and new trim. Rain-sensing wipers and Advanced Climate Control with Plasmacluster air purifier are added to the Technology Package, while the next-generation Infiniti navigation system is made available.
For the first time, the Sport Package is now available on the all-wheel-drive G35x model, as is an 18-inch wheel and tire upgrade. XM Satellite Radio becomes standard, the RearView Monitor moves from the Technology Package to the Navigation Package and a dedicated iPod interface joins the options roster.
Infiniti, Nissan's luxury arm, competes directly with Toyota's Lexus and Honda's Acura, and indirectly with Cadillac, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Thanks to recent bolder styling and across-the-board rear- and all-wheel drive, Infiniti has succeeded in distancing itself from parent Nissan and positioning itself as a serious player in that aspirational group. This excellent new G35, cleverly contented and strategically sized between BMW's compact 3 Series and mid-range 5 Series, is Infiniti's most affordable car and its volume leader.
Most observers agree that BMW is the industry benchmark for truly sporting sedans, and that BMW's 3 Series is the best of the best among the semi-affordable. But not everyone with sport sedan aspirations wants or can find the budget for such a pricey German car. Many buyers would prefer a domestic or Japanese equivalent, if such an alternative were available, and many manufacturers targeting BMW have come tantalizingly close to delivering that alternative. This new Infiniti G35 may be the closest yet to hitting that elusive target.
