The 2009 Audi A5 has a very understated appearance, as do several of its peers like the 3 Series and CLK-Class, but the A5's interior is more stylish and inviting, and the 3 Series’ interior is a bit more conservative.
The Infiniti G37 Coupe has a firm ride and sharp steering, like that of the 3 Series, but it's not quite as comfortable as either coupe, and its interior can be noisy.
The 3 Series has nimbler handling than the A5, and the base 328i accelerates almost as quickly as the A5's only engine, but the A5 has a roomier trunk than the 3 Series or other rivals.
The CLK has the most dated appearance of these three, in a fickle portion of the market where it counts to be seen in what’s newest.
