2012 Infiniti G Convertible Press Kit: At a Glance

The 2012 Infiniti G Convertible remains one of the most seductive vehicles in its class. 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.

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.

The inviting, convertible-focused interior includes standard leather-appointed seating and an available Bose® Open Air Sound System that dynamically changes equalization based on outside noise, vehicle speed, and top position, and an adaptive climate control system that adjusts fan speed in accordance to top position and vehicle speed.

For 2012, the previous Limited Edition package is no longer available. Other changes include the addition of a standard spare tire (replacing the previous repair kit). As in previous years, every G Convertible comes equipped with a standard 3.7-liter VQ-series V6 with VVEL rated at 325 horsepower. The engine is backed by a choice of an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with available solid magnesium paddle shifters or a responsive close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission. The G37 Convertible Sport 6MT adds sport-tuned steering and larger sport brakes, along with 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and W-rated performance tires.

Technology features include standard RearView Monitor and available Pre-Crash Seat Belts and Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC). The G Convertible’s available Infiniti Navigation System includes XM NavTraffic® Real-Time Traffic Information, NavWeather™ with Real-Time Weather and 3-day forecast (XM® subscription required, sold separately), Streaming Audio via Bluetooth® and Zagat Survey® Restaurant Guide. The system also features a touch screen and Voice Recognition.
