2013 Infiniti G37 IPL Review

2013 IPL G ConvertibleFew cars truly compete with the German luxury sedans and coupés, but the Infiniti G37 IPL 2-Door Convertible does better than just keeping up with the German competition. The G37 is otherwise known as the 3-Series killer, and after driving one for a week, we could see why from the first day. The dynamic control and powerful Infiniti Performance Line (IPL) tuned 3.7-Liter V6 engine means a driving experience you won’t forget every trip to work.

Stepping into the stunning G37, we were introduced to a vibrant red leather interior. The seats are uniquely made with the IPL logo on the front and back, and along with the steering wheel, are completed by the IPL red stitching. Every luxury feature one may need for maximum comfort was supplied in this coupé. Heated and cooled seats with eight combined temperature controls, as well as the advanced climate control systems Nissan provides for their luxury brand, make for comfort no matter what side of the prime meridian you’re on.

Handling around corners is seemingly effortless and smooth. The IPL-tuned performance suspension mates with the 19 inch 7-spoke aluminum wheels to hold the street like rails. With the (legal) chance, and the appropriate line of asphalt, you can push the G37 IPL to its limits. You’ll find that the take off is satisfying, but not punishing. The thrust of the G37 IPL is enough to enjoy the magnesium paddle shifters, but don’t expect to find any BMW M3s behind you.

Controls within the convertible are simple. The radio is self explanatory and brings prestigious sound from the Bose® Open Air Sound System, which includes personal speakers in the front seat headrests. The three-piece top can be dropped at the push of a button and fits into the trunk nicely. It’s easy to admire this car with the top down; it has been designed with a free, but organized, look crossed with aggressive sporty styling, whether the top’s on or off.

The G37 IPL is an incredible car that allows for a versatile and fierce design that complements its cross of luxury and sport. Decent efficiency with intriguing overall power that excites are two things we expect from a performance Infiniti. Our only complaint is the almost cheap feel to the plastic looking dash. But assuming the high level of technology and pristine options offered, you get the most for your buck from the G37 IPL at its $62,415 price tag. Comparing it to many German competitors, you can expect around $20,000 more for the same options.

If you’re in the market for a performance coupé or convertible, don’t let this slip your mind. The style and performance will force adrenaline through your veins and be sure to excite you on your first drive. Get to your local Infiniti dealer and see for yourself.

Review: 2013 Infiniti G37 Sport

 

Sexy.

That is exactly what this car is. The 2013 Infiniti G37 Sport is exactly what you are looking for when you say, “I want a sexy car that goes fast.” The G series has always been great, and it continues to be with this model.

Even though the outside of the G series really doesn’t change that much from year to year, that is not necessarily a bad thing. It still has the long wheelbase that you are used to in the G37 and has to lines, lights and touches that you are used to with the G series and I love every bit of it.

Of course, there is a lavish interior to go along with the exterior. The designing inside the G37 is great. Everything was in reach for me, and the passenger didn’t have to strain when I was annoying them with Justin Bieber songs on the radio. It is quite roomy for a 2-door in the front, but lets you down with little space in the back seats. If you are looking for a car to take the family out in, you may want to steer away from this model. But, if you are looking for that sporty car with a luxurious interior, take a looksy here.

However, the exterior and interior are not what is important when it comes to the G37 Sport, its the drive that matters and if it is a great drive you are looking for, you can find it in this car. Corners were taken fluidly and power was constantly provided to the tires. Its not often that I say that a car was given the right amount of power, but I can easily say it right now with this car. Its  3.7-liter V-6 puts out 330hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Most importantly, all of this is handled by a 6-speed manual transmission, giving you the ultimate sport feel.

I loved every second with this car and I would say that it is worth all of the $44,900. If you are looking for a sport, quick and sexy car, the 2013 Infiniti G37 Sport is exactly what you are looking for.

Review of the 2013 Infiniti FX37

 

The 2013 Infiniti FX37 is a luxurious crossover meant to compete with the likes of the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz M-class. We were surprised with this car all around. It looked great and drove even better.  Here is our main man Bucky's words on the 2013 Infiniti FX37.

Price: Tested Model Price $55,800

Engine: 3.7-liter V6

Horsepower: 325hp

Torque: 267 lb-ft

Weight: 5,519lbs

 

How did you feel about the exterior of the car?

-Overall, I was pleased about the outside of this car. It had very fluid lines all around. The only thing I found unattractive about this car, was the fact that it looked like a squished SUV.

How did you feel about the interior of the car?

-Geez, what a comfortable interior. Every time we get an Infiniti, I know I am in for a great cabin. While the buttons on the wheel were a bit much, the functionality of the interior was great. The seats formed to me thanks to the adjustable seats and comfortable padding. I felt like I could drive for hours and feel like I was on my recliner at home.

What was your favorite part about driving the car?

-The giddy-up in this car was there. I wasn't expecting a great amount of pickup with the heavy weight of this car and the lower power output, but when I stepped on it, it went. And of course, the ride was as smooth as ever. The body-roll was noticeable around corners, as is expected with most crossovers, but some just tend to mask it than others.

Did it have enough power?

-The power was there from the get-go, however I felt like it would top-out after a little while. While I liked its performance, I could definitely see them adding more power to the engine, thus making a much better car. All I'm saying is that there could be more power. 

What was your least favorite aspect of the car?

-I wasn't too pleased with its exterior. Like I said, it seemed squished. And the fascia looked to be a forgotten entity on the car when they were designing it.

How much would you price this car at?

-$45,000.  This is actually the base price of the car, and with $10,000 of options added into the car, I would say the $45,000 is still appropriate. 

If you have the money and were looking for a car in this class, would you buy it?  If not, which car would  you buy?

-You know, I wouldn't mind owning this car. Even though it competes with the likes of Mercedes-Benz and BMW, I have always enjoyed my time in Infinitis.

Introducing the Oh-So-Sexy Infiniti Emerg-E



Infiniti Emerg E

Earlier this week, the first pictures of the oh-so-sexy Infiniti Emerge-E were leaked before its official debut at the Geneva Auto Show. This electric supercar has a very beautiful design that makes it stand out from the rest. You wouldn’t necessarily call a Toyota Prius or its equivalent sexy but the electric Infiniti Emerg-E deserves the title. According to Infiniti’s press release “The Infiniti Emerg-E will be the first car from the brand to have not only a range-extender drivetrain offering vivid performance with zero emissions capability but also one mounted in a mid-ship package for optimal handling”. The official unveiling will take place on March 6 at the Infiniti stand and this event will also be transmitted live for those who cannot be there via Infiniti’s European website, www.infiniti.eu.
