The 2003 Infiniti G35 offers an impressive and attractive exterior. In either the sedan or coupe style, it looks assertive and makes quite an impression. The front end and grille slope gently up to the windshield and roof in a fluid line with square like headlights. The grille is unassuming and blends well with the front end of the body design. The sides of the sedan and coupe style are simple with clean lines and very few curves. It was offered in a variety of colors for the exterior, including Twilight Blue, Brilliant Silver, and Garnet Fire just to name a few.
The 2003 Infiniti G35 was designed with usability and comfort in mind. The front seats are bucket style and upholstered with comfortable, breathable cloth. The driver’s seat is equipped with an adjustable lumbar support system. The front seats provide plenty of head and leg room as well. In the back seat, passengers are comfortable with its own ventilation ducts and center armrest. The rear seats are foldable as well. It features power accessories too including power and heated mirrors, door locks, and windows. Infiniti didn’t forget about convenience in the cabin design either. Cruise control is standard as well as a first aid kit, center console with storage, and front and rear door pockets. Alloy and leather make appearances throughout. Alloy trim is found on the center console, dash, and doors. Alloy and leather can be seen on the shift knob, while leather alone accents the steering wheel.
Performance & Handling
There are plenty of good things to say about the 2003 Infiniti G35 in terms of performance and handling. It is equipped with plenty of power thanks to its 3.5-liter, V-6 engine. This motor is capable of 260 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Coupled with a five-speed automatic standard or a six-speed manual optional transmission, it provides plenty of power and is a dream to handle as well. Drivers find the car is more than capable of keeping up with highway traffic making merging and passing easy. In the city, it takes corners and turns just fine with a smooth, comfortable ride.
The 2003 Infiniti G35 offers four-wheel anti-lock brakes, front and rear head airbags, and dual front side mounted airbags as standard. The new tire pressure monitoring system is standard, too. Traction and stability control are part of the sedan and coupe safety features. Both the driver and passenger seats are equipped with head restraints intended to reduce whiplash in the case of an accident.
