No matter, with the two-piece wind-diffuser mounted over the rear seats, there's ample room for a few bags from the shops, but she'd be hard pressed to find anyone willing to stay put in the rear without divulging state secrets. A display nestled between the tach and speedo lets her know when things are tucked away. The new G37 manages to step up its performance capabilities without reducing driver comfort by including a rear limited-slip differential, 4-Wheel Active Steer system and sport brakes on the options list. I cannot say enough good things about him or the dealership. The bright spots for the G37 Convertible in comfort and quality are its dimmed-down wind noise—a ruffle here and there—and those well-fitted front seats, as well as high-quality materials and just the right noises filtering into the cabin from the V-6.
And that's where the G37 C shines. The four-wheel independent suspension is firm, and its responses let you know that this car is designed for driving enthusiasts — especially with the way the convertible hunkers down in corners.

Get the automatic with the Sport pack, and the steering wheel sprouts magnesium shift paddles.
