Expert Quotes:

There's no discernible difference in steering weight and feedback or suspension damping.
Edmunds' Inside Line

True, the G25 will never catch a G37 in a drag race. But if we judge performance on sound alone, if we could choose one engine over the other to listen to—we'd pick the G25's 2.5-liter V6.
Popular Mechanics

Braking, steering and handling performance remain pure Infiniti – always impressing
Autoblog

the G25 drives pretty much how it could be expected to -- like a G37 that's down more than 100 horsepower and just under 100 pound-feet of torque.
Motor Trend

snappy braking and crisp cornering that keep it among top-tier sports sedans
USA Today

If you want a sport sedan that's responsive communicative, and fun to drive, the 2013 G37 remains one of the best picks. Even though several of its alternatives have recently been refreshed or redesigned, it holds the crown in sheer fun behind the wheel, due to its near-ideal weight distribution, precise and well-weighted steering, and a suspension tune that helps it feel fleet-footed. 

The smaller 2.5-liter V-6 that made its debut for last year in the G25 has already been discontinued. That leaves the 328-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 in G37 models as the only engine--available with manual or automatic transmissions and with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The seven-speed automatic transmission seems to have two personalities, we've noted. It's a little lumpy and indecisive in gentle driving, yet it becomes snappy and actually smoother under harder acceleration; it also includes magnesium paddle-shifters and a smart throttle blip for downshifts. The six-speed manual gearbox is also a good pick.

Engine power is strong in either case, although we add a big asterisk for refinement; the V-6 is a raucous engine, with a coarseness that enters the cabin and a surprising level of engine noise.

Suspension tuning is superb, however. This might just be the best-handling sport sedan, and it's hard to fluster even when pavement surfaces are less than perfect; the quick-ratio steering unwinds predictably and it transmits some surface feedback; brakes are stout and strong; and there's a balanced, seat-of-the-pants feel to hustling the G37 through the corners.

Conclusion

Even the most demanding driving enthusiasts should be happy with the 2013 Infiniti G37.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
