Infiniti G37 gets ‘top of its class’ rating from Consumer Reports

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

The rating 'top of its class' was bestowed by Consumer Reports on the revised Infiniti G37 when it was pitted against the Acura TSX, Audi A4 and the latest VW Passat CC, all of which gained the 'very good' rating overall. These cars belong to the high-end sport sedan class, with stickers between $29,675 and $37,525. 

Thus, the Infiniti G37 remains on top of its class. The main feature of the car is still its drivetrain, which produces very powerful performance while at the same time generates superb fuel economy compared with the generation that preceded it. According to Consumer Reports, the G37 is very fast and is really a fun drive.

The Infiniti G37, as well as the Acura TSX, is the only car Consumer Reports recommend for June. The latest G37 comes with a bigger 3.71 unit coupled to a 7-speed automatic transmission (Journey variant), generates 328hp and produces a fuel efficiency rating of 21mpg (11.2/100km). A rating of "excellent" was bestowed upon the G37 following its performance in several tests, performing average reliability and adequately in crash and roll-over evaluations.

Furthermore, the G37 received credit for the following: Responsive and smooth 7-speed auto transmission shifting. Stopping power is superb. Although the cabin is cozy, tall drivers will find enough room for comfort. Front seats, which are ideally shaped, offer lots of adjustments and comfort. Meanwhile, the Audi A4 lost points mainly due to the fact that it comes with very complicated controls. Another point loser was VW Passat CC which, in its interior design, compromised rear-seat headroom.
