TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Infiniti G Sedans remain one of the top choices driving enthusiasts willing to sacrifice a little comfort for responsiveness and poise. The 2011 BMW 3-Series continues the tradition of excellent handling, brisk performance, and high quality, though its relatively compact size does result in some compromises.
