ALL-NEW 2009 INFINITI G CONVERTIBLE MAKES ITS WORLD DEBUT AT THE LOS ANGELES AUTO SHOWFirst-ever Infiniti G Convertible Set For Spring 2009 Launch in North America
Infiniti today unveiled the latest expression of its 'Inspired Performance,' the all-new 2009 Infiniti G Convertible, at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show. The first-ever Infiniti G Convertible builds upon the performance legacy of the Infiniti G line, wîth the liberation only a convertible wîth the top down can provide. It is scheduled to go on sale at Infiniti dealers in North America in the spring of 2009, followed later in other Infiniti markets around the world.
'Designed to rejuvenate the spirit, the G Convertible adds an open-air soundtrack to the G's legendary driving exhilaration,' said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, speaking before automotive media at the vehicle's world debut. 'This new G has dual beauty – it looks as good wîth the top up or down – along wîth a beautiful, leather-appointed interior that is meant to be experienced wide-open.'
The new G Convertible offers a three-piece folding steel top and a special convertible-focused interior, which features a unique 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.
Every 2009 G Convertible comes equipped wîth an advanced 3.7-liter V6 rated at 325 horsepower. The engine is backed by a choice of an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission wîth available magnesium paddle shifters or a responsive close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission.
