By all rights, the Audi S4 competes best against the BMW M3 in performance and the BMW 335i in price-and enthusiasts rave over both BMWs for rippling powertrain muscle and captivating rear-drive handling.
The Lexus and Infiniti sedans are new to the sport-sedan game, the Lexus capped by a shrieking IS-F edition and the Infiniti G37 without a hyper-performer, but with some of the ride and handling magic of the BMW.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class tops out with the C63 AMG sedan, but even the base C350 has more capable handling than before; however, rear-seat room is still cramped and its interior styling a little complex.
