The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Has the 3-Series become too portly, expensive, and upscale? If you think so, the 2009 BMW 1-Series might make you happier. The Infiniti G37 Coupe is the best-selling coupe in the segment for a number of good reasons: it’s incredibly fast and handles well, and it’s good-looking in a well-heeled way.
