Infiniti Coming To Malaysia, But Not Soon Enough
Comprising saloon, coupé and convertible body styles, rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel drive and features such as 4-Wheel Active Steer, Infiniti’s G models already deliver more choice than most in the luxury performance market. With the 2011 Model Year range now available in Europe, Infiniti G models are honed to give the customer a better clarity of choice, thanks to a simplified range with few options but generous standard equipment. Every model in the all-V6 line-up is now equipped as standard with a 7-speed adaptive automatic transmission with steering wheel paddle-shift for precise manual control when the need, or mood, arises.
Complementing the more tailored range are new alloy wheel designs for the Coupé and Convertible, a standard rear spoiler on Coupé S versions, and new body colours for all – including the popular Malbec Black first seen on the M saloon.
There are four versions in the new G Saloon range, two of them rear-wheel drive and two GT models with the extra capability of all-wheel drive, courtesy of Infiniti’s intelligent torque split system. As before, the sportiest G, the S Premium, gets standard 4-Wheel Active Steer, among other driver-focused features. Two of the three dynamic Coupé models available also come with 4-Wheel Active Steer while the G37 Convertible, with its electrically retractable hard-top, majors on elegance and technology. Now with standard 7-speed automatic transmission with paddle-shift, the entry model to Infiniti’s European line-up is a spacious and luxurious four-door saloon with a seriously sporting side. Its tuneful V6 delivers 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds while cornering poise is assured thanks to resolved rear-drive handling and near-perfect weight distribution. And with features such as bi-Xenon adaptive cornering lights, power front seats and 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, the exclusive G sets the pace for equipment.
