With the 2011 Model Year range now available in Europe, Infiniti G models are honed to give the customer a better clarity of choice, thanks to a simplified range with few options but generous standard equipment. Every model in the all-V6 line-up is now equipped as standard with a 7-speed adaptive automatic transmission with steering wheel paddle-shift for precise manual control when the need, or mood, arises.
Infiniti G37 - £33,508
Now with standard 7-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shift, the entry model to Infiniti’s European line-up is a spacious and luxurious four-door saloon with a seriously sporting side. Its tuneful V6 delivers 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds while cornering poise is assured thanks to resolved rear-drive handling and near-perfect weight distribution. And with features such as bi-Xenon adaptive cornering lights, power front seats and 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, the exclusive G sets the pace for equipment.
Infiniti’s seductive Malbec Black paint finish is now available on all 2011 G models. The colour first appeared on the M saloon in 2010 and quickly became a hit with buyers.
Infiniti G37x GT - £36,538
The entry GT model, with its leather trim and heated seats among other features, not only ramps up the luxury but also the all-seasons capability with standard all-wheel drive. One of the most popular of G models across Europe, the Gx uses the intelligent torque split ATTESA E-TS system, also fitted to the EX and FX crossovers. It retains rear-drive handling feel while adding four-wheel drive traction with up to 50% of torque going to the front wheels when required. The paddle-shift automatic enhances the sportiness, with 0-62mph in just 6.0 seconds.
Infiniti G37x GT Premium - £40,264

The V6 automatic also lacks for little in the equipment stakes, with its leather covered sports seats and roll call of high technology – Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Connectiviti+ HDD satnav, 30 GB Music Box and Bose sound system, among others – from the GT Premium.
Infiniti G37 GT Coupe - £36,319
