2011 Infiniti G25 Review
New G25 joins G37 sports sedans, coupes, convertibles.
The Infiniti G sedans, coupes and convertibles are to some extent luxurious, four-seat versions of Nissan's 370Z sports car. All the G models excel at driving dynamics. The interiors are friendly and feature-laden without being too busy. The Gs are priced lower than most comparably equipped European competitors. We think they're a good choice for performance-oriented drivers.
NewCarTestDrive.com correspondent J. P. Vettraino reported from Detroit, with Sam Moses in the Columbia River Gorge, Tom Lankard in Lenox, Massachusetts, and G.R. Whale in Northern California.
