Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

If you've ever driven a modern Nissan then you may be a little disappointed that there are several familiar switches and controls in the more upmarket Infiniti, such as the sat nav buttons (where fitted), steering column stalks and climate controls. That said, the finish is impeccable and the cabin certainly lives up to Infiniti's reputation for high quality.

The design isn't the most daring, but the layout is easy to get on with clear dials and logical switches, however it lacks the modern and unique touches of many alternatives. The engine start/stop button is a sporty feature though and the seats are excellent, as is the driving position. Another neat touch is the instrument cluster that moves up and down with the steering column.

With excellent sound insulation and high levels of refinement, the G Coupe is a wonderfully relaxing long distance car, helped by supportive seats - particularly in the S version which gets sports front seats with 14-way electrical adjustment for the driver. The rear is quite cramped - as are most two-door coupes this size, and fitting child seats would be incredibly tricky though there are Isofix mounting points.

It's also quite dark and gloomy, but would be okay for two adults on shorter journeys. Usefully, the front seats slide forward electrically to make getting in and out a little easier. All models come with climate control as standard.
