For The Infiniti G37 is a quick, responsive, attractive coupe with a decent exhaust note and rarity thrown in for good measure. The rear seats cater well for kids.
Against Running costs, fuel consumption and emissions are high, while residual values could be low. This entry-level trim misses out on leather upholstery.
There’s a price to pay for individuality, but if you don’t want to follow the rest of the pack, the Infiniti G37 might be well worth considering.

Although it’s been around in the US for 20 years, Nissan’s Infiniti brand is new to Europe and faces a hard slog establishing itself as an alternative to other premium brands like Lexus, Audi, BMW and Mercedes.
Infiniti is hoping to attract buyers who want something different and sporty that will stand out from the crowd, which is just as well, as the limited range of powerful V6 engines narrows the appeal of the cars to the wider market. The UK will also only be served by a very small network of dealerships, but Infiniti vows to offer service that is second to none and has, therefore, set itself the goal of ousting Lexus from top spot in the JD Power Customer Satisfaction Index.
However, as these Infinitis represent an entirely new collection of powerful niche models, the outlook for residual values on them looks pretty tough.
The no-holds barred version of the G37 is expensive to run, but really great fun. Guaranteed exclusivity means you won’t be lost in a crowd.
