... to the prestige brand’s presence.

The luxury arm of Nissan is the latest entrant in Australia, launching in September with the FX range of SUVs and the M sedans.

A G37 coupe and convertible will join the fleet later this month with prices starting at $75,900 for the V6-powered coupe and $87,900 for the hardtop. Infiniti Cars Australia general manager, Kevin Snell, says the duo deliver on the company’s “inspired performance” motto.

“The Infiniti G Coupe and Convertible are exciting alternatives to the current crop of luxury sports cars. Their exterior designs set them apart and they deliver a true sports car-style driving experience,” he notes. Both cars are propelled by a 3.7-litre V6 with 235kW/360Nm matched to a seven-speed automatic.

Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlamps, dual-zone climate-control, leather upholstery, powered and heated front seats, a seven-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, satnav, Bluetooth streaming, a Bose sound systems and a sunroof

The range-topping S premium versions add more interior bling along with upgraded brakes fitted inside 19-inch rims with a tyre pressure monitoring system. The coupe’s sports credentials are boosted by four-wheel steering, a sports suspension tune and a limited-slip differential.

The G37 will take on products from Japanese rival Lexus along with the usual German suspects in Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, all of which have less powerful engines for the same price. Infiniti says its design gives buyers a chance to stand out from the angular pack without sacrificing comfort or performance. It also has the best warranty of any prestige brand at four years/100,000km.

“These two cars open Infiniti to another vital segment within the Australian luxury car market and expand the scope of our ability to offer luxury car buyers a long-awaited new choice,” Snell says.
