2009 Infiniti G37 Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
The interior of the Infiniti G37 features a driver-oriented, cockpit-style design. Its seats are well-liked, and most reviewers find the material quality to be excellent. Coupe shoppers will find the back seat small, but otherwise there are few complaints.
- "Cabin assembly quality and most interior materials are on target for the class, with real aluminum or wood trim available." -- Consumer Guide
- "The new car's interior is first-rate, pleasing to the touch and solid in feel." -- Road and Track
- "The interior does its part to make driving enjoyable." -- Newsday
- The coupe's backseat is "inhospitable for all but the smallest occupants." -- Forbes
- "A cockpit-oriented layout that envelops passengers." -- Motor Trend
- The G37 "still doesn't have quite the top-shelf refinement of the BMW." -- Los Angeles Times.
The front seats of the G37 are comfortable and supportive, with most reviewers saying they're comfortable on long drives and grip during aggressive cornering. The rear seats of the coupe are cramped, even for a sporty coupe. But sedan models offer functional rear-seat space. Convertibles do a better job than most at protecting occupants from uncomfortable buffeting by wind.
- "The seats in G37S models have additional side bolstering to keep occupants planted in fast cornering." -- Consumer Guide
- "Competing German sport coupes have much more accommodating interiors, including considerably more spacious back seats." -- Forbes
- The backseat of the coupe is "OK in a (literal) pinch." -- Boston Globe
- "Even the tallest drivers will enjoy an excellent driving position and the generous range of the telescoping steering column. After 2,300 miles, this intrepid traveler felt no need to rush to the chiropractor. About the only gripe we have concerns the bottom seat cushion, as its supportive bolsters make it a little narrow." -- Edmunds
- "Front sport seats were very comfortable and did a good job of supporting us as my driving partner and I took turns flinging the G into the corners of the spectacular winding roads we found ourselves on." -- The Family Car
- "On the upside, the G37 advances the art of keeping the air out of an open-air car." -- Los Angeles Times
The interior of the 2009 G37 features cabin electronics that work together well and an eye-catching aluminum trim theme that many reviewers like. Some find too many hard interior plastics for a luxury car. Its optional navigation system wins points for ease of use. A unique sound system built into the headrests of convertibles wins a lot of reviewer praise.
- "The navigation system itself is refreshingly easy to use, and many audio and climate functions are separate from it. The main gauge cluster moves with the tilt steering wheel." -- Consumer Guide
- "Some of the plastic looks cheaper than it should, like the pieces surrounding the steering-wheel audio and cruise-control buttons." -- Car and Driver,
- "The available Premium package includes adaptive climate control that adjusts heating and air conditioning levels depending on speed, roof position and outside temperature (there are also heated and cooled seats). Also included is the Bose Open Air Sound System, with speakers built into the front headrests and active noise cancellation." -- Los Angeles Times
- The Convertible "gains a new Bose stereo with speakers mounted in the headrests. Top up or down it delivers crisp, powerful sound." -- Jalopnik
The G37 coupe's trunk is incredibly small -- offering only 7.4 cubic feet of storage space. The rear seats fold down in one piece to expand trunk volume into the small back seat. The sedan's trunk, at 15 cubic feet, is close to the class average. The convertible, however, suffers from a small trunk even by convertible standards. With the top down, it's virtually unusable.
- "Interior small-item storage space is just fair." -- Consumer Guide
- In the coupe, one's "first impression of the shallow trunk is that a case of beer might risk getting crushed (it doesn't)." -- Car and Driver
- "With the top up, the trunk is on the shallow side; when the lid is down, it's practically non-existent (two cubic feet)." -- Autoblog
- "The other significant downside to the convertible is that the lowered top all but devours trunk space, down to around 2 cubic feet. Yes, you can take the kids to school in alfresco glory, but there's no room in the trunk for their lunch boxes." -- Los Angeles Times
