The 2009 line of Infiniti G37s features one major difference from previous models. The 2009 Infiniti G37 adds the convertible and sedan to previous year’s standalone coupe. All are unified by the 3.7-liter V-6 engine and the seven-speed automatic transmission. New to the line in 2009 is the addition of all-wheel drive as well as self-repairing clear-coat paint.
The exterior of the 2009 Infiniti G37 will vary depending on the trim style. All makes of the vehicle have leather accents on the interior and aluminum or wood trim. The front area is reinforced across the seats and is extremely comfortable for average-sized drivers. Consumers who require more room may find the fit tighter and more uncomfortable. The body base and color vary across the models as do size and wheel specifications.
The base G37 is a standard option with no variability across its range. The Journey, Sport, and G37x have a wide range of customizable options. The packages can be confusing, however, and vary dramatically. Moon roofs can be installed and even a telescoping steering wheel. Upgrades can also include the audio system, which features in headrest sound system in the convertible as well as iPod connectivity. Also in the convertible is the option of seat coolers that keep the driver more comfortable.
The Navigation package includes many options that focus on travelling features, including cameras and hard drive capabilities. The previous two packages may be combined and must be purchased before the Technology package can. The technology package focuses on integrative technology capabilities and other interesting connectivity features.
Back seating varies across the makes. The coupe and convertible leave much to be desired, especially in the middle seat. The cargo area is best utilized in the sedan and the coupe though the latter has much less room. The convertible trunk space will shrink dramatically when the top is down.
