2013 Infiniti G Convertible Combines Seductive Coupe-Like Styling and Exhilarating Performance
The Infiniti G Convertible remains one of the most seductive vehicles in its class in 2013. Created around the central idea that a luxury
performance convertible should look equally inviting with its top up or down - and be equally enjoyable to drive sans roof or not - the G
Convertible combines grace and performance with signature Infiniti attention to detail. It is again available in two models, G37 Convertible
and G37 Convertible Sport 6MT. For 2013, a new IPL G Convertible, the second model in the Infiniti Performance Line™, is also offered.
Highly Seductive Styling Inside and Out
Based on the highly popular Infiniti G Coupe, the G Convertible offers a model-exclusive design from the A-pillars back, including a unique body
structure and a wider rear track. Its athletic, well-proportioned coupe-like styling, flowing front fenders, wave-like hood, and signature
Infiniti double-arch grille offer an uncommon presence that is only enhanced when the exclusive three-piece power hardtop retracts with
one-button operation securely into the trunk.
With the top up, the G Convertible maintains its classic Infiniti G coupe-like silhouette through use of a special three-piece "clamshell"
retractable hardtop, which allows for both a stylish shorter rear overhang and a low trunk lid. Signature Infiniti styling cues include
L-shaped High-Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional xenon headlights with fog lamps. In the rear, the taillights are unique to the G
Convertible, incorporating an inner "circle of light" for added style. The chrome rear trunk finisher incorporates both an integrated high-mount
stoplight and the small camera for the standard RearView Monitor system. The G37 Convertible Sport 6MT includes a unique front fascia/bumper
design (also included with the G37 Convertible with Sport Package). The automatic top opening/closing sequence takes approximately 30 seconds
from start to finish. The open/close switch is located on the center console, just behind the transmission shifter lever.
For 2013, the G Convertible is offered in eight exterior colors: Vibrant Red, Malbec Black, Liquid Platinum, Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian, Moonlight
White, Pacific Sky and Lapis Blue.
The G Convertible's inviting interior design combines sophistication, craftsmanship and thoughtfulness with unique, available systems. Every
element is created to enhance the open-air driving experience, taking into consideration the typical challenges to fully enjoying open-air
driving, such as added interior noise and turbulence, added heating and cooling system demand and even the fact that the seating surfaces can get
hot in the sun or cool at night.
The driver-oriented cockpit features an Infiniti signature instrument panel design with Infiniti electroluminescent instrumentation with a
white illumination color scheme, integrated multi-function information drive computer display and signature analog clock. The double
hand-stitched leather-covered steering wheel is designed for maximum comfort and usability, with standard wheel-mounted audio and cruise
controls. The G Convertible with Sport Package also has solid magnesium paddle shifters for its 7-speed automatic transmission.
Special Silk-Obi aluminum interior trim, inspired by fine Japanese silk, is located across the instrument panel, on the center console and
on the door panels. Also available are interior Gloss Maple Accents. Leather-appointed seating is standard and is offered in three colors -
Graphite (black), Wheat and Stone. Heated 8-way power driver/8-way front passenger seats are standard, with Climate-Controlled Seats available as
part of the Premium Package models with the automatic transmission.
The G37 Convertible Sport 6MT includes special sport-styled front seats with manual thigh extension and driver's power thigh and torso
support - along with sport stitching for the front seats and steering wheel, high-grip aluminum pedals and foot rest. A power walk-in device
with position memory provides easy access to the 2nd row seats (the front seats move forward automatically at the touch of a button to allow
passengers into the rear seats).
The G Convertible's long list of comfort and convenience features includes standard Infiniti Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition and
an Adaptive Dual Zone Climate Control System air conditioning system that adjusts to provide optimal comfort with the top up or down. Two audio
systems are available, starting with a standard 6-speaker AM/FM/CD system with MP3 playback capability, Radio Data System (RDS) and center
console-mounted auxiliary input, 7-inch color display and SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately).
A second audio system is also offered - a 13-speaker Infiniti Bose® Open Air Sound system with AudioPilot® 2.0 technology that that
dynamically changes equalization based on outside noise, vehicle speed, and top position. The system's special Bose® Front seat Personal
Speakers, mounted in the front seat head restraints, enable superior front audio quality regardless of the top position.
Other available G Convertible features include standard Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and the available Infiniti Navigation System with
available NavTraffic and NavWeather (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), Streaming Audio via Bluetooth® and Zagat Survey® restaurant
reviews and touch screen.
Liberating Dynamic Performance
Like the G Coupe and G Sedan, the G Convertible's outstanding dynamic performance credentials start with a combination of its advanced FM platform and
award-winning V6 engine. Every 2013 G Convertible comes equipped with a standard 3.7-liter V6 engine with VVEL (for Variable Valve Event and
Lift), rated at 325 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. The VVEL system combines hydraulic-controlled variable valve timing and electronically
controlled variable valve lift on the intake side, helping to improve not only performance and response but also emissions and fuel efficiency
(over a non-VVEL system).
The engine is mated to a choice of an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode, downshift rev matching,
Drive Sport (DS) mode, Adaptive Shift Control (ASC) and available solid magnesium paddle shifters; or a responsive, lightweight close-ratio
6-speed manual transmission on the G37 Convertible Sport 6MT.
The G Convertible's responsive handling and ride performance is provided by its advanced FM (Front Mid-ship) platform design, which
optimizes front/rear weight balance and creates a stable foundation for the 4-wheel independent suspension. The front suspension is an
independent double-wishbone design, with a single pivot lower wishbone and a long upper link. The multi-link rear suspension separates the Dual
Flow Path® shock absorbers and springs, locating the shock absorber inline with the wheel center. These designs help minimize alignment
changes and reduce suspension friction for nimble handling and smooth riding characteristics.
Responsive steering is provided by a vehicle-speed-sensing system, with sport-tuned steering offered with the G37 Convertible Sport 6MT and
G37 Convertible with Sport Package. Standard on all G Convertibles is Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS). Braking
performance is provided by standard 4-wheel vented discs with 4-channel, 4-sensor Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force
Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. The G37 Convertible with Sport Package and G37 Convertible Sport 6MT are further enhanced with larger
ventilated rotors (14.0-inch front/13.8-inch rear) and aluminum four-piston calipers front/two-piston calipers rear, embossed with
Also available is Infiniti's Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), which assists in maintaining a consistent following distance from the vehicle
ahead. Preview Braking identifies sudden braking situations with laser sensors to determine distance and relative speed of the vehicle ahead in
the same lane and "pre-pressurizes" the brake system before the driver steps on the brake pedal.
Standard on the G37 Convertible are 10-spoke 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with Dunlop SP Sport MAXX A1-A P225/50R18 front and P245/45R18
rear all-season tires, while the G37 Convertible Sport 6MT utilizes special 19-inch cast aluminum-alloy wheels with Bridgestone Potenza
RE050A high performance tires (P225/45R19 front and P245/40R19 rear). The 19-inch wheels and tires are also available on the G37 Convertible as
part of the Sport or Performance Tire & Wheel Packages.
An Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and occupant classification sensor is
standard, along with door-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags, front-seat mounted side-impact supplemental air bags and front seat
Active Head Restraints. The rear seat includes fixed head restraints with rear Pop-up Roll Bars. The G Convertible also features reinforced front
side members, front pillars and body sills.
