Infiniti G37 Coupe And Convertible To Make Local Debut At AIMS

Tony O'Kane | Oct 9, 2012

Infiniti will showcase the G37 Coupe and Convertible at this month's Australian International Motor Show in Sydney.

The G37 range will join the FX SUV and M large sedan in local Infiniti showrooms in December, when the Japanese luxury brand's two-door range officially goes on sale here.

Absent from the show, however, will be the sedan variant of the G37. When planning its launch into the Australian market, Infiniti decided not to bring in the G sedan, instead electing to wait until an all-new model arrives in late 2013 or early 2014.

Built on top of the same FM platform used by the Nissan 370Z sports car, the G37 has a stretched wheelbase to accomodate a pair of rear seats and a larger boot, however the basic suspension geometry is shared.

The convertible features a folding metal roof rather than a fabric soft top, to improve noise suppression and eliminate wind rustle.

The 370Z's 3.7 litre V6 is also shared with the G37, as is its seven-speed automatic (optional on the Zed, standard on the G37). Power output is slightly lower than the 370Z though, with 231kW instead of 245kW.

Trim grades for the G37 range have yet to be announced, but we can expect the same two-grade strategy used by the Infiniti M to be applied to the G. That means an entry-spec G37 GT and a high-grade G37 S Premium could soon find their way into showrooms.

For now, pricing remains under wraps. Infiniti Australia's Peter Fadeyev confirmed that pricing details will be announced "closer to each model’s date of release, which is December".
