2011 INFINITI G37 Sedan vs. Its Competition

2011 Infiniti G37 Sedan 4-door Journey RWD Angular Front Exterior View
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The most direct rival to the G37 Sedan is the BMW 3-Series.

Like the G37, the 3-Series has great dynamics and near-perfect steering, though our editors like the steering feel of the G37 best.

Overall, though, the 3-Series is more refined, composed, and day-to-day livable—especially if you reside in a place with rough roads.

The new Audi A4 is another top rival, with its rear-biased Quattro all-wheel-drive system promising more driving enjoyment, plus top-notch materials and a cohesive design inside and out.

For those who want a sporty but comfortable choice, the Lexus IS would work; its interior is a bit more cramped and it doesn't feel as sporty overall, but otherwise it's comfortable.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2011 Infiniti G Sedans remain one of the top choices driving enthusiasts willing to sacrifice a little comfort for responsiveness and poise.
8.0
If the bold exterior is to your liking, the 2011 Acura TL is a solid luxury value—and the SH-AWD has true sport-sedan chops.
8.2
With strong performance, good practicality, and respectable fuel economy, the attractively styled 2011 Audi A4 strikes a great balance for an everyday-driving sport sedan.
8.4
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.
7.4
The 2011 Lexus IS 350 and IS 350 look and drive like sport sedans, but they're not as performance-oriented as sport sedans from BMW or Infiniti.
