Before actually driving the car, we were inclined to think it might prove to be a bit uncomfortable, especially suspension-wise. Upon seeing the 18-inch alloy wheels engulfed in low-profile performance tires, our opinions strengthened. Truth is, we were a bit wrong. A little more than a bit, actually.
You see, the Infiniti G37 Sedan has one of the most compromising types of suspension setup we've ever encountered. Sporty and stiff during hard cornering, braking or accelerating and mildly... let's not call it exactly soft, but comfortable whenever cruising around town or the open road. Sure, we're not saying that the G37 is the most comfortable medium sedan out there (because it isn't), but it sure felt better than the BMW 330d xDrive on paved roads. Both cars were rolling on 18-inch wheels by the way.
At the limit, it feels every bit as sporty and as accurate as a top of the line BMW 3-Series, but the comfort is much improved. The comfort features inside the car are also on the high side, starting with the heated front seats with no less than five heating stages and ending with the highly intelligent cruise control system.

So, apart from the somewhat stiff suspension on really hardcore roads and the interior space which is not exactly as large as you would expect, the Infiniti G37 Sedan is quite a comfortable car. We would go as far as say that it's probably the most comfortable medium sports sedan out there. Continue reading
