The 2010 Infiniti G37x Coupe AWD is a bit too gentlemanly. This is not a bad thing, I just feel like I was always the one asking him out. In this day and age, that’s very acceptable. However, every girl likes to feel courted. I don’t know that the G37x was all that interested in pursuing me like it pursued every car in front of it on the road.
I think the first issue is the unassuming paint job on the G37x. It was silver, which is usually hit or miss anyway. I have seen other G37x’s out there on the road and they are truly beautiful in black, white, and well, any other color than silver. So, you know, keep that in mind.
Looking past the paint job is one pretty car. There are beautiful curves, nice hips and a great rear end. Subtle chrome accents are on the trunk lid and the rear tail lights have a great tapered, angled tear-drop shape that makes me happy. The front end is a little more generic, which surprised me.
Again, this is kind of okay because with a quick 330hp V6, people will be looking more at your back end anyway. And that V6? It has a terrific rumble that I’d like to hear a little more of, Infiniti. Delicious. Anyway, if they’re not looking at your backside, remember: It’s what’s on the inside that counts!
Speaking of interiors, I was surprised at the amount of room tucked into the G37x. It being a coupe led me to some assumptions that it would be crammed. But my family fit well, and I was hugely impressed at the deep, comfortable back seats. Do note that only two people can sit back there. While you can do double dates in the G37x, there’s no room for a chaperone (yay!).

The front seat was comfortable, but I had trouble finding a good spot for the seatbelt. It did not like to go anywhere but the side of my neck. I moved the seat to fit the belt better, but that didn’t make me too happy. As before, I felt like I was working a lot harder in this relationship than the G37x.
The controls were pretty easy to use and sat within my reach. The interior wasn’t very showy, it was dressed in black leather, a little chrome, and some brushed aluminum. Nice and clean. Not overly pampering or fussy. But a girl does like to feel special sometimes… I digress. The navigation system was the only thing that felt intimidating because of all the buttons and toggles staring at me before I even got started. But it wound up being pretty easy to use, but I should say that I am getting pretty good at allowing some extra time to program it before I actually leave the house, like a little extra primping before the big date.
Overall, I liked the G37x, but at $45,915 I might choose some options that make it feel a bit more like it cares about me. I’m teetering between a recommendation of Buy It! and Lease It! If you love to pursue, go Buy It! But if you like a little more attention, you might want to Lease It!
