2001 Infiniti G20 Review

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

Reviewed by Automotive on


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
Engines: 2.0-liter four-cylinder
Transmissions: five-speed manual, four-speed automatic
Models: Infiniti G20, Infiniti G20t

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.


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.


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.


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.
