As our First Drive revealed, Infiniti's first folding tin-top is a decent performer and markedly more attractive in appearance than its Germanic competition. And now that pricing has been revealed, the 2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible just got a bit more desirable. The seven-speed, automatic-equipped model starts at $43,850, while the six-speed manual model (6MT in Infiniti parlance) with its standard Sport package comes in at $43,900 (both excludes $865 destination and handling). Just for comparison's sake, the BMW 328i starts at $44,550, while the hotter, twin-turbocharged 335i commands $50,700 for the privilege.
Package pricing is listed in detail below the fold, but for $3,250, the automatic model can be outfitted with the Premium setup, while opting for the Sport 6MT saves you $200 on the same package. Navigation and Technology packages will set you back $1,850 and $1,150, respectively, but if it came time to use our money, we'd just tick the box for the Sport ($1,350 with Premium, $1,550 without) and Performance Tire and Package for $650, along with the "R Spec High Friction" brake pads ($370). Make the jump to start specing your G37 Convertible before it goes on sale June 19th.
Infiniti Announces Pricing on All-New 2009 G37 Convertible
FRANKLIN, Tenn. (June 4, 2009) – Infiniti has announced pricing on the newest addition to the Infiniti lineup, all-new G37 Convertible, which is scheduled to go on sale June 19th at Infiniti retailers nationwide. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $43,850 for the G37 Convertible and $43,900 for the G37 Convertible Sport 6MT.
The first-ever G Convertible features a three-piece power retractable hardtop engineered to deliver styling that looks as good with the top up as down. The exclusive convertible-focused interior offers standard leather-appointed seats and is available with a Bose® Open Air Sound System, front seat Personal Speakers, climate-controlled front seats and an adaptive climate control system that adjusts fan speed in accordance to top position and vehicle speed.
The new G Convertible comes equipped with a standard 325-horsepower 3.7-liter V6, backed by a choice of a 7-speed automatic transmission with available magnesium paddle shifters or a responsive close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission – offering buyers the same high levels of performance as the G37 Sedan and G37 Coupe, along with the wide-open exhilaration of top-down driving.
"The new G37 Convertible is a seductive addition to the G line that has already earned such prestigious accolades as Car and Driver's '10 Best Cars' in 2009," said Ben Poore, vice president, Infiniti Business Unit. "It adds all of the excitement of open-air motoring without compromising the G's legendary performance and signature styling. This new G Convertible is one more compelling reason for buyers to put Infiniti at the top of their consideration lists. "
