The Infiniti G25 sports sedan offers almost everything the top-rated G37 does but costs less. The G25 is agile and fun to drive. Further, its interior is well finished and fairly quiet. Definitely skewing toward the sporty side, ride quality is taut, composed and comfortable enough -- but not exactly luxurious. With its smaller V6, the G25 is noticeably slower than the G37, but gets substantially better fuel economy.

What Owners Say

"Impressive acceleration and confident handling."

William R., GA (2012 Infiniti G)

"Although 400 pounds heavier than the coupe it still has great acceleration, superior handling with ultra high performance all weather tires"

Anonymous, MD (2012 Infiniti G)

"Terrific in every regard."

Ulf Z., GA (2012 Infiniti G)

"The 330-horsepower performance is explosive"

Anonymous, CT (2012 Infiniti G)

"Good handling in adverse weather conditions better than expected."

Anonymous, WA (2012 Infiniti G)

"Fun. It has a very high redline of 7600 rpm, so you can get spirited acceleration, even with the extra weight of the hard top convertible, and a thrilling sound. Cornering is spot on, again, considering the extra weight."

Anonymous, VA (2012 Infiniti G)

"The car accelerates nicely, provides good road feedback, and corners predictably without excessive body lean. Good visibility, but the drivers seat is a little narrow, but otherwise comfortable."

"Very fast and love the free flow exhaust. Handles pretty darn well for a sedan."

GARY A., TX (2012 Infiniti G)

"Acceleration and handling are excellent. Particularly the acceleration options. It has a series of modes in which it can be driven from economy to sporty. I usually use economy, but on occasion I've used the sport mode to avoid potential hazards. I'd like to add that, living in Arizona, I am totally ignorant of how my car would perform in snow or Winter driving conditions."

LAWRENCE K., AZ (2012 Infiniti G)

"powerful and takes corners extremely well, very sporty feel and handling"

DANIEL R., WI (2012 Infiniti G)

WAYNE P., MD (2012 Infiniti G)

"Absolutely perfect in every way. I love driving the infiniti in any road condition. It handles perfectly. It accelerates very smoothly, easily, and rapidly no matter what speed you hit the throttle from. This is a perfect car from the handling perspective and provides loads of comfort."

Anonymous, WA (2012 Infiniti G)

"Handling: The G37 Journey has a very slow steering response because of a slow steering ratio, i.e, turns lock to lock. The G37s Sport model has a faster ratio and is satisfactory. Didn't know of the different ratios, per model, when making the purchase."

W H., FL (2012 Infiniti G)

"The accelerates quick;y and handles great. A fun to drive car."

RITCHIE A., CA (2012 Infiniti G)

"Upon acceleration the vehicle hesitated consistently. When taken to the dealership, I am told there is nothing wrong with the car. Yet EVERYONE who drives it feels it unequivocally"

B S., FL (2012 Infiniti G)

"I purchase the Infiniti G37 XS sedan version which includes the 18" wheels for better aggressive road handling. The driving and handling of this vehicle is sporty with a firm grip on the road, especially in quick cornering maneuvers. The acceleration is snappy from a dead stop but feels even more aggressive when passing. It is always a pleasure to drive this dynamic feeling car."

KEVIN F., IL (2012 Infiniti G)

"Very very Quick comfy handling style"

RICHARD L., CA (2012 Infiniti G)

"Performs like an M series BMW."

TIMOTHY S., TX (2012 Infiniti G)

Anonymous, AZ (2012 Infiniti G)

"Seats are very comfortable in front, no back seat to speak of. The ability to move passenger seat back and forth while sitting in drivers seat is great. The blowers for the seat heater/cooler are very loud. I would have been much more satisfied if I could have had the trim in an imitation wood instead of the brushed stainless steel."

Anonymous, MS (2012 Infiniti G)

"1.Drivers seat overall uncomfortable; much difficulty with getting the drivers seat to really "fit" me when driving the car. unessarily overcomplicated the driver seat settings. 2. upon starting the ignition (every time) the rpms run high and car makes a loud noise simultaneously, a sputtering type noise-as though the engine is struggling and/or running very roughly-this subsides in approximately one minute, 3. the car is a very noisy drive on the highway, unpleasant and uncomfortable because of the noise 4. the ride is bumpy, this G37 model doesn't handle well whatsoever; suspension not anywhere near tight, handling is loose with much play in the steering wheel; this car doesn't feel solid which is very disappointing- definitely a cheap/poor quality from infiniti. I've driven two other models by infiniti and they did not live up to their standards with the G37. extremely disappointed, I will be trading this car in soon and have only owned it for 8 months. I do not like this vehicle at all. my experience with this vehicle has caused me to lose total faith in ifiniti. I will not purchase any model from infiniti ever again. for lack of a better overall description, this is a cheap, poorly made vehicle. I don't understand why infiniti did this."

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

Anonymous, CT (2012 Infiniti G)

"Compared to other vehicles that I looked at (including the BMW 3 Series), the G-37S came equipped with more options, a bigger engine, and more horsepower. To purchase a BMW 3 Series with all of the options that I have on the G-37S probably would've cost $15,000 more. Ini addition, oil changes are relatively inexpensive for this vehicle. Having said all of that, I previously owned a BMW 330ci and no other car that I've owned handled and drove as well as that car did."
