Edmunds' Expert Review

It still doesn't quite match the benchmark BMW 3 Series when it comes to providing the ultimate connection between car and driver, but the powerful, roomy and agile 2007 Infiniti G35 is oh-so-close for thousands of dollars less.

vehicle overview

When Infiniti brought out the G35 sport sedan and sport coupe four years ago, it was easy to see who the company was going after. With its powerful six-cylinder engine, rear-wheel drive and finely balanced, sport-tuned chassis, the G35 didn't gingerly dip its toe into the entry-level luxury sport sedan/coupe waters. Rather, it took a flying leap, did a cannonball and splashed cold water all over the BMW 3 Series.

At the time, we gave critical praise for the Infiniti G35's style, strong performance and roomy cabin, while the few criticisms involved some lackluster cabin materials, over-assisted steering and the lack of a manual transmission in early sedan models. With the increased availability of a six-speed manual and the introduction of an all-wheel-drive model, the G35 saw its already considerable popularity rise as the years went on.

For 2007, Infiniti has brought out a fully redesigned G35 sedan, while the coupe remains unchanged for now. Key improvements for the sedan include even more power from the already muscle-bound 3.5-liter V6 (306 horsepower versus 293 or 275 in the coupe), an updated and stiffer version of the car's "FM" platform architecture, sharper handling, a mild but complete styling makeover and welcome improvements to interior material quality. A few new features debut for the sedan as well, such as active four-wheel steering, adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera and a rev-matching feature for the automatic transmission's manual shift mode.

Despite standing pat for this year, the Infiniti G35 coupe remains a strong entry in the sport coupe segment, with its handsome styling, fleet-footed personality and relative bargain price tag. Many think of it as a four-seater Nissan 350Z, with which it shares its basic platform.

Either way, the 2007 Infiniti G35 is a must-drive for anyone considering a top entry-luxury sport sedan or coupe. Key competitors include the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Lexus IS 350. With more room and power than its German rivals, a more spacious cabin than the IS and a lower price tag than all three, we expect the G35 will attract plenty of attention this year.

2007 INFINITI G35 configurations

The 2007 Infiniti G35 comes as a midsize sport coupe and sport sedan. The sedan offers five trim levels: base, Journey, x (AWD), Sport and Sport 6MT (six-speed manual transmission). The base G35 comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon HID headlights, leather seating, front power seats (eight-way driver, four-way passenger), automatic climate control, full power accessories, a CD player, a trip computer and keyless entry and start. The Journey adds dual-zone climate control and a six-disc CD changer. The x adds all-wheel drive and heated front seats. The G35 Sport has the Journey's equipment and adds firmer suspension tuning, 18-inch alloy wheels, a limited-slip rear differential, front sport seats and a sport steering wheel. The Sport 6MT includes a six-speed manual gearbox.

Many optional features are also available. The Premium Package includes a moonroof, an upgraded Bose audio system, heated front seats with driver memory, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and Bluetooth connectivity. Go for the Technology Package to get adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights and a rearview monitor. A hard drive-based navigation system with real-time traffic and MP3 music storage capability is available, as are satellite radio, a four-wheel steering system and real wood interior trim.

The G35 coupe is available in either base or manual transmission "6MT" trims. Both are equipped similarly to the base G35 sedan. In addition to a six-speed manual gearbox, the 6MT includes more power (293 hp vs. 275) and a sport-tuned suspension with 19-inch wheels. Option packages are generally similar to the sedan's but lack many of the new-for-'07 features.

2007 Highlights

The year 2007 is a mixed one for the Infiniti G35. The coupe remains unchanged, but the sedan has been completely redesigned. Highlights for the sedan include a stiffer body structure, revised chassis tuning for better handling, a more powerful V6 engine and evolutionary styling.

Performance & mpg

A 3.5-liter V6 powers all 2007 Infiniti G35 models. In the sedans, it makes 306 hp and 268 pound-feet of torque. For the coupes, it makes 293 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque in the 6MT and 275 hp and 268 lb-ft in the automatic version. All but the 6MT trims have a five-speed automatic with manual control and rev-matching on downshifts. The 6MT trims have a six-speed manual. All versions are blindingly fast -- an automatic-equipped G35 Sport sedan we tested ran zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and dispatched the quarter-mile in 13.9 seconds.

Safety

Antilock disc brakes with brake assist, front-seat side airbags, full-length curtain airbags, anti-whiplash front head restraints, traction control and stability control are standard on all G35s. On sedans, a tire-pressure monitor is also standard and a rearview monitor is optional.

Driving

The 2007 Infiniti G35 is quick, and even changing gears with the automatic is fun, thanks to quick response to the driver and rev-matching on downshifts. But this Infiniti also boasts finely balanced handling. Outright grip is remarkable and body motions are well-controlled. Although the ride quality is fine on the non-Sport suspension G35s, some folks may find the calibration too stiff on the latter cars. The brakes, on the other hand, are flawless. G35 sedans with the Sport trim get larger 13-inch rotors front and back, and they stop the car in impressively short distances. Our only dynamic complaint has to do with the G35 sedan's steering. Ratio and feedback are right on, but the vehicle-speed-sensitive assist needs some fine-tuning. When the vehicle speed is changing rapidly up and down -- as when running through a mountain road -- changes in the assist are too radical and too slow to come, which can give the steering an artificial, video-game quality.

Interior

A fairly long wheelbase of 112.2 inches makes for a spacious cabin for passengers whether they're up front or in back. However, the coupe's stylish, sloping roof line limits headroom for taller folks. Build quality is solid for the most part, if not up to the level of an Audi or BMW. The redesigned sedan boasts improvements in the cabin, such as the use of more soft-touch materials and real aluminum (or optional Rosewood) accents that enrich the interior considerably. Trunk capacity ranges from just 7.8 cubic feet in the coupe to 13.5 cubes in the sedan.

Extremely Pleased with G35
Mark,01/03/2007
Bought first Infiniti after driving all comparable entry level luxury sedans. Expected to purchase new Lexus ES350,IS350,BMW 3-series or Accura TL. The new G35 addressed former interior design flaws with clean, upscale, functional controls. Seats comfortable and leather and trim match any car in class. The car stands out, however, in exterior styling and performance. It is truly a head- turner and I've actually grown tired of telling strangers what type of car it is...most believe it would cost $40- $50K. 306 hp rear-wheel drive in Journey model is responsive with a throaty sound better than competitors. Only the BMW 3 models compare in class and are not worth the extra $5-8K. Safe buy.
Sports Car with Luxury!!!!!!
Tim,12/03/2006
I first test drove the BMW 328XI and was impressed with its driving, handling, and exterior appearance. However, the interior of the vehicle was a disappointment. For a vehicle well over 40 grand the interior should be eye catching as well. Later that day I test drove the 07 Infiniti G35x which to me handled just as well as the BMW. The exterior of the Infiniti is just as impressive as the interior. I purchased it fully loaded for just over 40k. I got it in black with beige leather which I receive compliments all the time. BMW should take a lessons from Infiniti on interior. There is no comparison between the two. The 3.5L V6 (306 hp), blows BMW(230hp) away. BMW is in my rear view mirror.
Whats with the nay sayers???
rebrth,08/13/2011
I really dont understand some of you peoples gripes about this car. Tires and brakes worn out in less than a yr? Averaging 14mpg? Well how about you slow it down. Thats whats you can expect when your flooring it every time your behind the wheel. Even one person that complained about everything in regards to how the car looked inside. Well then why did you buy it. The appearance didnt change after you made your purchase did it? Quality on this car is top notch, its a nissan made vehicle of course. The ride feels extremely stable in all maneuvers. Yeah the average of about 18 to 20 mpg is a bit on the low side but when your pushing out 306hp what do you expect?
I don't miss the Audi.
Floodzone,11/10/2006
My 2006 Audi A4 3.2l was recently totaled. The new G35 was worth the wait. Interior and exterior quality of this car are superb and a significant improvement from the 2006 model. I was concerned that this vehicle would be a cheap "substitute" for the BMW or not live up to my Audi. NOT! In my opinion THIS car has now set the new standard, especially considering the outstanding features and cheaper price. This car is now unmatched: Fun to drive, great power, reliability, luxurious interior, tech options, AND less expensive... Negatives? While I personally would rank overall performance of the G35 best in the class, I would still rank steering precision 2nd to BMW. Fuel economy is so-so.

More About This Model

The halls are empty now. The offices quiet. The window blinds drawn. After 40-odd years of daily hustle and bustle, Nissan's headquarters in Gardena, California, sits idle, a "For Sale" sign staked in the front yard, the company name yanked from the building's facade. All mail has been forwarded to Nashville, Tennessee.

Yes, the company's corporate move to the home of country music is complete, but the 2007 Infiniti G35 sedan is a product of Nissan's Southern California workforce. In fact, it's the last Infiniti product to be executed in its entirety by those sun-loving surf bums, and it's a good one.

Class-leading grunt
Five trim levels are offered: G35, G35 Journey, G35x AWD, G35 Sport and G35 Sport with a six-speed manual transmission. Infiniti says the G35 Sport automatic, like our rear-drive test car, will make it the second most popular of the five models. The all-wheel-drive G35x gets a larger piece of the pie because it's popular in the Northeast, while only 10 percent will buy the manual gearbox.

All five models are powered by the same all-aluminum 3.5-liter V6. It's the fourth generation of the 24-valve, double-overhead-cam VQ35 engine, which honestly, we didn't think Nissan could improve on. Wrong again. This engine now revs higher, makes more power and uses less fuel.

Approximately 80 percent of the engine's parts are new, including the block, which has been made stronger. Nissan's white lab coats also added electromagnetic variable valve timing to the exhaust valves, a higher compression ratio and true dual exhaust. But the coolest new gizmo under the G's aluminum hood is the engine's symmetric twin ram air intake system, which uses two throttle bodies and routes the incoming air around rather than through or over the radiator. Nissan says the system helps reduce airflow resistance by 18 percent and increases horsepower by 3 at 60 mph.

Now the engine lights up the spec box with 306 horsepower at 6800 rpm, 268 pound-feet of torque at 5200 rpm, a 7500-rpm redline and an EPA rating of 19 city and 26 highway when backed by the five-speed automatic. That makes the G35 more powerful than nearly all of its six-cylinder rivals, including the BMW 330i, Audi A4 3.2 and Mercedes-Benz C350. The Lexus IS 350 also packs 306 hp, but it makes more torque, 277 lb-ft, at a lower 4800 rpm; and according to the EPA, it gets better mileage (21 city/28 highway).

Class-leading thrust
As you would expect from the above paragraph, the G35 blows all 12 doors off its German rivals, while the Lexus matches the Infiniti's performance. Our tester tore up the track with a scorching 0-60-mph run of 5.6 seconds and a quarter-mile performance of 13.9 seconds at 102 mph. The last 330i we tested, which had a six-speed manual, was nearly a second slower in each test.

In the age of the six-, seven- and now eight-speed automatics, the Infiniti's transmission, with only five forward gears, may seem behind the times. But the five-speed's proper gearing, attentive action and ability to match revs perfectly when manually downshifted makes the transmission a standout and the perfect choice for this very capable sport sedan. It delivers all of the hard-driving advantages of BMW's complex sequential manual gearbox (SMG) without any of that transmission's drivability issues.

Those manual gearchanges can be made with the well-placed shifter or steering-column-mounted paddle shifters, which are cast from lightweight magnesium and covered with a delicate swatch of leather. The paddles are extra large and conveniently placed, but they don't turn with the wheel as they do in the BMW M5.

The magnesium paddle shifters are standard on the G35 Sport, along with drilled aluminum pedals, sport seats with thigh extensions and driver's power bolster adjustments, a sport steering wheel with specially colored stitching, 18-inch wheels and tires, a unique front fascia, a viscous limited-slip differential, and unique tuning for the car's electronic stability system. Options exclusive to the Sport models are a four-wheel active steer system, which our test car had, and a clumsy rear spoiler, which it thankfully did not.

Hard tail
Infiniti says the four-wheel active steer (FWAS) system (which activates at 25 mph) improves the vehicle's handling by adjusting the toe of the rear suspension up to one degree based on steering input and vehicle speed. At the same time, a planetary gearset that's been added to the steering shaft varies the steering ratio between 12.0:1 and 18.5:1. We would like to say the system works but not having track tested a car without the system, it's hard to know.

Testing a car with four-wheel active steer versus a car without it probably wouldn't prove anything anyway. When you order FWAS, the sedan's suspension is stiffened beyond the G35 Sport's standard settings, so any difference in handling could be due to the active steer system or the differences in suspension tuning. Or both.

One thing's for sure. The suspension tuning on the G35 Sport, which is firmer than the suspension on the other three trim levels, is just too firm. The car's new 40-percent-stiffer chassis allowed for such aggressive suspension tuning, and Infiniti's chassis engineers took the bait. Order four-wheel active steer and the ride becomes downright teeth chattering. We expect Infiniti will be getting some hate mail from Sport owners in the rough-road states.

Class-leading agility
Nobody but BMW owners will complain about the G35's handling. Front-end grip borders on the remarkable, while body control and balance are superb. At the track it circled the skid pad with 0.85g of lateral acceleration and slipped through the slalom at 67.1 mph — both a cat's whisker under the performance of the BMW 330i.

Wheelbase is the same 112.2 inches as last year, but the front and rear tracks have been widened 0.7 inch in front and 0.9 inch in the rear. The four-wheel independent suspension also received some revision up front, with a new single-pivot double-wishbone design which replaces the previous model's two lower links. Infiniti also staggered the car's tire sizes for the first time (225/50R18 in front, 245/45R18 at the rear).

Our only dynamic-handling complaint has to do with the G's steering. Ratio and feedback are right on, but the vehicle's speed-sensitive steering assist needs a little sorting. When the vehicle speed is changing rapidly up and down — like when you're charging a mountain road — changes in the assist are too radical and too slow to come, which can give the steering an artificial, video-game quality.

The brakes, on the other hand, are flawless. Sport models get larger 13-inch rotors front and back, and they stop this big sedan with little trouble. Fade is not an issue, pedal feel is excellent and stops from 60 mph take just 112 feet.

The ins and outs
Designed and still built in Japan, the 2007 G35 is essentially the same size as last year's model. Length is up half an inch, while the car is just 0.8 inch wider and 0.5 inch lower. Weight is up just 48 pounds.

It's also the same size on the inside, with a few minor exceptions. Rear-seat headroom has been shaved a bit, while there's a little more knee room thanks to a more careful carving of the door panels. Five still fit, but rear passengers shouldn't be much taller than 6 feet. Another change was the loss of the G's reclining rear seat, which was unique to the class. (We're told it was dumped for weight savings.) Trunk space is unchanged at 13.5 cubic feet.

Perhaps the new G's most meaningful improvement over its predecessor is its interior design, which has certainly taken several steps up in ergonomics, materials quality and ambience. Infiniti calls the décor "modern warmth." Real aluminum trim is not only standard, it has been textured to resemble a fine, handmade Japanese paper called Washi. The effect works, but when combined with our tester car's black leather, the décor is more Raider Nation than modern warmth. African Rosewood trim is optional on non-Sport models.

Option packages on our tester included the Premium Package, which added a sunroof; power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel; memory for the driver seat, mirrors and steering wheel; Bluetooth; heated front seats; auto up-down rear windows; and a 10-speaker Bose audio system Infiniti calls "Studio On Wheels." Our test car did not have the optional Intelligent Cruise Control, adaptive front lighting, a rearview monitor, or the navigation system which features XM NavTraffic with real-time traffic information.

It's all wrapped in an evolutionary two-box design that's more aggressive than the shape it replaces, but also a little fussy in its details. Misses include a contrived chrome lip spoiler and overwrought grille bars, made to look like the twisted blades of samurai swords. Hits include the dual chrome exhaust tips, lower greenhouse and the pull-type door handles. Love it or like it, it's no doubt recognizable as the new G35, so it works.

If it ain't broke...
It was the 2003 G35 sedan and coupe that made Infiniti a player in the luxury market. After 13 years of rocks and trees and retagged Maximas, Nissan's luxury division found its stride. Last year, Infiniti sold 121,000 vehicles, 55,000 of which wore the G35 badge.

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.

Infiniti has left the car's size, layout and winning combination of luxury, performance and price essentially unchanged, while improving every aspect of the vehicle. A neat trick, one that has earned the gang a few rowdy nights at the Grand Ol' Opry, and one that will keep the G35 on the top rung of the midsize-performance-luxury-sedan market.

The manufacturer provided Edmunds this vehicle for the purposes of evaluation.

Stereo Evaluation

System Score: 8.5

Components: "Infiniti Studio on Wheels" is the official name of this stereo system. It features Bose components and is an extra-cost option for the G35. It's included as part of larger options packages — most costing in excess of $3,000 — that offer many desirable features in addition to an upgraded stereo. The system consists of three speakers mounted in each front door including a 10-inch woofer, a 1-inch tweeter and a 3-inch mid/high-range speaker — another 3-inch speaker resides in the center of the dash as well. Each rear door has a 6.5-inch speaker and there's another 10-inch woofer in the rear package shelf. Total speaker count is 10. The upgraded system also includes a Bose digital amplifier mounted under the rear package shelf.

Performance: Bose says the goal of this new Infiniti sound system is to deliver detailed, lifelike sound. In many ways it has succeeded. Thanks to those three 10-inch woofers mounted throughout the car, bass response is deep, sharp and well controlled. Kick drums sound especially impressive, and even certain singers with a low frequency to their voice come across with a richer texture. Midrange is also very, very good with excellent sound presence. The vocals cut through nicely, which ultimately makes most types of music pleasant to listen to. Infiniti provided a Stevie Ray Vaughan CD with the car, and those gruff vocals combined with a raw, pure guitar to showcase the sound system perfectly.

On some harder rock tracks, separation is only slightly less than perfect, and at very high volumes some distortion can creep in. Otherwise, the optional sound system is a treat to listen to and flexible enough to give an acoustic Johnny Cash track a certain intimacy while at the same time delivering the needed punch of a driving Reliant K song.

The interface is simple and easy to use thanks to a revised and more upscale-looking center display screen. However, there's no midrange adjustment, and we'd like to see some customizable features like an equalizer similar to what Harman Kardon systems offer. Of course, those Harman Kardon stereos come in much more expensive cars.

Best Feature: Sharp, lifelike bass that doesn't sound messy.

Worst Feature: Lack of customizable settings.

Conclusion: An excellent-sounding stereo. Its only flaw is a lack of customization. — Brian Moody

Second Opinions

Inside Line Editor in Chief Richard Homan says:
It's nice to meet a luxury carmaker that doesn't need to rely on an SUV to make its numbers. The G35 accounts for about a third of all the Infinitis sold in the U.S. That's a pretty big responsibility, but the first-gen G35 shouldered the burden nicely. And Infiniti's second go at the G35 sedan isn't about to mess with a successful formula.

The new G35's styling is not a radical departure from its predecessor, which makes sense as I am always surprised to note that the current G35 still looks fresh even after four years (I was not originally a fan, but somewhere in 2003, I acquired a taste). The leather-trimmed interior is an easy place to feel good in and to feel good about. The car's 3.5-liter VQ V6 still deserves a standing ovation for its enthusiasm and output, but a five-speed automatic is one gear shy of the competitive luxury standard.

I suspect that the second-generation G35 will enjoy that same comparison-test advantage that helped the gen-one car do so well: It'll be a quality, upper-midpack contender until sticker price gets tossed into the equation. At that point, the G35 will bump the BMW 3 Series off its throne with a value proposition that cannot be ignored.

Senior Road Test Editor Josh Jacquot says:
Bitchin' steering. Incredible brakes. Unflappable chassis. An automatic transmission with legitimate performance potential harnessed to a 300-hp six-cylinder. Sounds like a serious sports car, doesn't it? Now add these to the list:

Four doors. Modern luxury appointments inside and out.

No, it's not a BMW 3 Series. But it's without question the 3's biggest rival when it comes to luxury/performance sedans. Infiniti's G35 sedan, since its introduction, has possessed outstanding dynamics, brilliant styling and a low-rent price tag the Germans could only hope for. Now, with its engine fully updated, it's a true class leader.

The G's revised 3.5-liter V6 makes an impressive 306 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque. But those numbers only tell part of the story. The rest becomes clear as the G's tach needle blasts straight past its old 6600-rpm redline on its way to a genuinely usable 7500 rpm. Those extra 900 revs allow the true enthusiast some serious involvement that would never happen with a lesser engine. Like, say, the 3.0-liter straight-6 in BMW's 330i.

And the G will hold its own against the 3 in any handling showdown — our slalom tests show only 0.3-mph difference between the two in the slalom. Heck, I even prefer the G's chassis over the legendary Bimmer. And that just doesn't happen very often.

Should I lease or buy a 2007 INFINITI G35?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
