Video Review: The 2010 Infiniti G37 S Convertible

Host Jessi Lang thinks the 2010 Infiniti G37 S Convertible is one of the most well-rounded luxury sports car on the market and after watching her convincing arguments, you’ll be hard-pressed to disagree. With an attractive design, stiff handling, and packing a punch, the G37S Convertible is quite the package.

Infiniti is pitting the G37 S Convertible against manufacturers known for their performance and luxury, the likes of Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz, and it holds it own. The G37 Convertible is unique as it was designed as a convertible, not by Infiniti forcing the G37 Coupe into a convertible model.

Under the hood, the G37S Convertible is powered by a 3.7L V6 engine that produces 325 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque. You have the choice of a seven-speed automatic with features like rev matching or a tightly-geared six-speed manual. The fuel economy numbers with the V6 are not anything impressive but aren’t surprising with the performance, averaging 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

On the interior, Infiniti has done an impeccable design job. The cockpit is driver-oriented with a one-piece steering wheel and gauge setup that moves as a unit, making the gauges visible to the driver at any position. The standard audio offering with six speakers, six CD changer, mp3 playback ability, radio data system, and optional satellite radio will be enough for most buyers but for those who plan on driving with the top down a lot and still want to hear their music should opt for the optional open air Bose sound system with 13-speakers and microphones that optimize EQ settings for open and closed topped driving.

If you’re not looking to load up on options but you want the performance, comfort, and luxury, the price is right, starting at $46,950. However, if you want to stock up on goodies and upgrades, the price will break $50k like our tester that came in at $50,035.
