2007 Infiniti G35 Sport: Steering and handling
August 06, 2007
Though I'm perhaps putting myself at odds with commentary delivered in previously published G35 and G37 road tests, I will state that I'm not overly enamored with our Infiniti G35's steering. It's variable assist, but in some instances — slower speed corners, primarily — the steering feels artificially heavy. Most drivers equate heavy steering as being sporty, but in this case I feel it hampers this sedan's ability to be nimble and engaging.
Otherwise, the G35 is highly capable...
I took it out on one of my favored canyon roads a few days ago. There's plenty of grip available from the Bridgestone RE050A 245/45R18 tires, and the car is solid and well balanced. You can drive the G35 Sport hard and fast and it won't complain a bit.
