Right up against the BMW 3-Series is where Infiniti wants to be with its G37 Coupe; and for the most part, this model measures up, providing a sharp, athletic driving experience, as well as a design and overall feel that simultaneously channel true sports cars and more plush luxury coupes.
The G37's a strong competitor to BMW's 3-Series coupe, even if the G37's IPL edition isn't in the same league as the multifarious M3.
Both get more heat from Mercedes, now that the C-Class comes in two-door form--even as an AMG.
The pretty Audi A5 comes up a little empty-headed when it comes to performance, but its high-performance S5 variant is a fast, mature touring car.
Lexus' IS sedans and convertibles are also worth a look, though they feel small and tight, and with the smaller V-6, underpowered.
The Nissan 370Z is another alternative that only the die-hard enthusiast crowd might consider alongside the G37; it's not as refined or as luxurious as the G37 Coupe, but it's a brilliant performer.
Just beware that engine and road noise are omnipresent—to a much greater degree than in the G37.
