What's New - 2011 Infiniti G Sedan
The 2011 year marks the introduction of the Infiniti G25. Outfitted with a smaller engine and a less lengthy list of standard features, the G25 serves as an economical alternative to the Infiniti G37. On the other end of the vehicle lineup spectrum, the G37 is now available with a couple new premium special-edition packages.
2011 Infiniti G Sedan Styling
Both the Infiniti G37 and Infiniti G25 exude a true sport sedan exterior. Though largely understated, a definite undertone of muscle seeps through the large front end and curved roofline. Those who want a luxury sedan that offers a touch of boldness (without being brash) will likely find much to like about the Infiniti's sheet metal.
Keep in mind that Infiniti G models are also available in coupe and convertible forms.
Inside, Infiniti engineers paid special attention to the vehicle's styling elements. With intriguing choices such as textured trim accents that are meant to resemble Japanese rice paper, the Infiniti delivers a truly unique entry-level luxury experience. Front passenger seating is ample and should accommodate most drivers adequately. On sedan models, rear-seating dimensions are good for the class. At 13.5 cubic feet of trunk space, the G sedan falls a little short in the category of cargo.
2011 Infiniti G Sedan Performance
The new base engine for the Infiniti comes in the form of a 2.5-liter V-6 that is mated to a 7-speed automatic. Power output is listed at 218 horsepower and 187 lb-ft. of torque. In comparison, the returning 3.7-liter V-6 available on the G37 earns 328 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of torque. Both engines are available with all-wheel drive.
