2007 Infiniti G35 Sedan Review

The Infiniti G35 is widely credited with saving Infiniti from obsolescence when it arrived in 2003. Indeed, it played an important role in Nissan’s turnaround at the early parts of this decade. For 2007, Infiniti redesigned the G35 sedan, while leaving the coupe alone for now. The solid FM platform has been updated, and there are some styling changes as well. It’s still easily recognizable as a G35, but it does look more modern. The VQ engine got some upgrades internally. It’s the same size, but now puts out more power ( 306 on the new scale, so it’s a nice jump. ) I can’t wait for the new G35 coupe – but I’m partial to coupes. For a sedan, the new G is pretty sweet. Is it better than the BMW 3 series? Well, don’t ask me. Keep reading to find out.

2007 Infiniti G35 Sedan Reviews

New Car Test Drive reviews the 2007 Infiniti G35 and writes – ‘The transmissions ably handle the engine’s power and power curve. Clutch operation on the six-speed manual is heavier than we would expect on a sedan, even a sports sedan. This makes for sometimes rocky clutch engagement, especially at low speeds and light throttle. A luxury car’s shift lever ought not vibrate as much as the one in the pre-sale test car, but Infiniti techies said this was an anomaly that will be cured in cars built for sale to consumers. Similar assurances were given for a whine in the first four gears that evoked memories of straight-cut gears in full-on race cars. Shift pattern and gear selection, though, were tight and precise, respectively, requiring little effort.

Car and Driver reviews the 2007 Infiniti G35 and writes – ‘Infiniti’s G35 line was always a weird anomaly to me. The coupe and the sedan were both great to drive, but the coupe had graceful, flowing lines that made it look elegant and sporty, and the sedan looked portly and had an awkward, sloped rear end. Perhaps Carlos Ghosn whipped the design team into shape, because this new car is stunning. The revised front end looks tight and sporty, and the sloppy rear-end slope is replaced with more properly proportioned architecture.

Autobytel reviews the 2007 Infiniti G35 and writes – ‘The stereo was simple and elegant, and could be controlled using buttons on the steering wheel. I didn’t use those much, since the switch for cycling through the pre-set stations operated counter-intuitively. Instead, I preferred the six pre-set buttons, the volume knob, and the tuning knob mounted smack dab in the middle of the dash.’

Inside Line reviews the 2007 Infiniti G35 Sport and praises Infiniti on making a good decision – ‘You’d have to be loopy to mess with that kind of success, and Infiniti hasn’t. The 2007 Infiniti G35 sedan, which will hit dealers in November (the 2008 G35 Coupe will reach dealers next summer), is very much the same car as its predecessor, only better. Think G35 2.0.’

Cnet reviews the 2007 Infiniti G35 and writes – ‘Whenever we got the opportunity, we were out test-driving the 2007 Infiniti G35, which attests to how much we liked this car. Except for the less than stellar mileage, the power train is extremely satisfying. Handling is very good, and interior comfort is top-notch. Ours didn’t come equipped with navigation, but it is available. Sound quality is also very good, and the Bluetooth integration works well. Each system has its odd quirks, but overall, the G35 is highly desirable.’

Automobile Mag reviews the 2007 Infiniti G35 and compares it to a Bimmer – ‘In its chassis tuning, its tightened embrace of technology, and–if you load up on all the new options–its price, the G35 is, more than ever, a Japanese 3-series.’
