2001 Infiniti G20 Review

Handles well and has some interesting features, but may be outdone by the competition.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2001 Infiniti G20 provides the entry-level luxury sedan for Infiniti and makes a good first luxury sedan for those looking for comfort and performance on a budget. It doesn’t quite have the power or feel of some other models, but it has some appealing features for its price range, and the five-speed manual transmission helps with some of the power issues.

The 2001 Infiniti G20 offers two trim levels. The base Luxury edition and the Touring edition (G20t). With the performance-oriented G20t, you get a limited-slip differential and a rear spoiler.

The Range

Body Styles: luxury sedan

What's New

With the 2001 Infiniti G20, drivers enjoy a leather interior and a manual transmission on both models, nice for those looking for a little power with their luxury. Leather comes standard on the G20t along with a power sunroof.

Exterior

The exterior of the 2001 Infiniti G20 comes in seven colors with an attractive finish. Fifteen-inch alloy wheels come standard on both models. The G20t comes in eight colors and also features a rear spoiler and power glass sunroof standard. Other standard features include power mirrors, windows, and door locks.

Interior

The interior of the 2001 Infiniti G20 includes bucket front seats, an eight-way power driver’s seat, an easy-to-read dashboard, a tilt-adjustable leather steering wheel with cruise controls on the wheel, and front and rear cupholders. The G20t adds leather front seats and climate control. Both models offer a 100-watt Bose stereo system with six speakers and in-dash CD player.

Performance & Handling

The speed-sensitive power steering makes handling a pleasure. The 2001 Infiniti G20 features front drive with a front independent suspension and front limited-slip differential on the G20t. Both models feature a two-liter, DOHC, 16-valve, inline four-cylinder engine that provides 145 horsepower and 136 lb-ft of torque. Drivers should opt for the five-speed manual transmission to maximize power but a four-speed automatic also provides an option.

Safety

In addition to the optional one-touch emergency assist system which can be a lifesaver in case of an accident or other unforeseen calamity, 2001 Infiniti G20 safety features include four-wheel ABS, front head and dual front side-mounted airbags, an engine immobilizer, front seat belt pretensioners, electronic brakeforce distribution, a remote anti-theft alarm system, ventilated front disc and solid rear disc brakes, child seat anchors, and rear-door child safety locks.
