The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2008 BMW 1-Series makes a true Bimmer available for under $30,000 (but just barely).
