Since leading Infiniti's renaissance in 2003 and a complete redesign last year, the 2008 Infiniti G35 sports sedan continues with its strong performance, taut handling, and room for 5, now with added comfort and technology options. Available in Base, 6MT, and X trim levels, all are powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 with 306 hp combined with a 5-speed automatic with manual shift control. Fuel economy is estimated at 15/23 city/hwy. Safety features include standard ABS, traction control, front, side and curtain airbags, and tire pressure monitoring. The G35 has always compared well with BMW 3 series, Mercedes C class, and Audi A4, delivering luxury and performance combined with parent company Nissan's outstanding reputation for quality.Read more Read less
A redesigned Infiniti G coupe makes its debut for 2008, offering a new look and more power in the way of a 330-horsepower, 3.7L V6. New performance-oriented equipment takes advantage of the power, and the interior now has some improved convenience and entertainment features. To keep pace with its increased displacement, the G35 coupe (as it was formerly named) has appropriately been renamed the G37. The G35 sedan is carried over from a thorough redesign for 2007, which brought a more powerful version of its 3.5L V6, a new all-wheel-drive version called the G35x, and a greatly improved interior, among many other changes. For 2008, the G35 sedan gets a new Sport Package and an 18-inch tire and wheel option for the G35x. Optional Technology and Navigation packages have been revamped, an iPod interface is available, and XM satellite radio is now standard.
Performance; attractive interior; available performance and technology options.
Infiniti's 2008 G35 sedan and G37 coupe are quite different in appearance yet have a similar, sharp-edged character that lends priority to performance over comfort. That's not to say that their interiors aren't well-appointed; both models come with great seats, an elegant interior with nice materials, and very impressive audio systems. Both G models stand out for offering overall performance near the top of its class, when compared with other V6 sport sedans and coupes in its price range. The new coupe manages to step up its performance capabilities without reducing driver comfort, with a rear limited-slip differential, 4-Wheel Active Steer system, and Sport Brakes on the options list.
