Infiniti has announced Australian prices and equipment for both its G37 Coupe and G37 Convertible. The announcement comes ahead of the official local market release of the two sports cars, scheduled for this month. They will join the companyâ€™s recently released Australian market launch models, the FX performance crossover and Infiniti M sports sedan.
â€œThe Infiniti G37 Coupe and Convertible represent Infinitiâ€™s next important step in Australia,â€ says Kevin Snell, general manager of Infiniti Cars Australia.
â€œThese two cars open Infiniti to another vital segment within the Australian luxury car market and expand the scope of our ability to offer luxury car buyers a long-awaited new choice.”
Both models are powered by a 3.7-litre petrol V6 engine producing 235kW and peak torque of 360Nm. The standard-fitment transmission is a seven-speed automatic equipped with adaptive shift control, downshift rev matching and magnesium paddle shifters. A viscous limited-slip differential (LSD) is available for the G37 Coupe.
Chassis and suspension
Underpinning the G37 Coupe and Convertible is the marqueâ€™s driver-oriented front mid-ship platform. This rear-wheel drive design sees the engine placed further back in the chassis to optimise weight distribution for improved handling.
The combination of a double-wishbone front suspension design and a multi-link rear layout, along with carefully tuned suspension geometry, helps deliver responsive handling and ride comfort. Lightweight alloy wheels in both 18-inch and 19-inch designs are available.
Responsive steering is delivered by a vehicle speed-sensing steering design, providing drivers with great feel and optimum steering effort at low and high vehicle speeds.
Available on the G37 Coupe is Infinitiâ€™s exclusive 4-wheel active-steer system (4WAS). This combines a unique chassis configuration equipped with variable front steering ratios and rear suspension geometry that adjusts to steering input and vehicle speed via motor-driven controls.
The systemâ€™s electronic control unit calculates the desired vehicle dynamics from a series of sensors, including vehicle speed and steering angle, and separately directs both the front and rear actuators to change steering gear ratios and rear geometry by moving both the front steering gear and rear suspension lower links â€“ thus enhancing the coupeâ€™s sports car-like agility and secure stability.
S Premium grades of the G37 Coupe and Convertible are fitted with aluminium four-piston (front) and two-piston callipers (rear) embossed with Infiniti lettering and large ventilated rotors â€“ 14.0-inch front and 13.8-inch at the rear.
L-shaped high-intensity discharge (HID) Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated fog lamps feature at the front. At the rear, both models feature broad rear fenders that flow into large LED taillights, an Infiniti trademark; an available integrated rear view camera; rear under-body air diffusers and large dual exhaust outlets with chrome finishers.
The G37 Convertible uses a three-piece retractable hard-top roof that takes it from closed-roof coupe to open-top convertible at the touch of a button. When closed, the G37 Convertible has a coupe-like silhouette similar to that of its hard-top sibling.
Both cars have a sophisticated, luxurious interior with a cockpit-oriented driver and front passenger area. A ten-way power-adjustable driverâ€™s seat is standard fitment alongside an eight-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. The stylish instrument binnacle features electro-luminescent instruments coloured in white and violet. Both models have comfortable rear seating, giving sports car enjoyment for more than just two people. Leather upholstery is fitted to all model grades.
Australian customers can choose from two model grades for both the G37 Coupe and G37 Convertible.
