The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 BMW 3-Series delivers outstanding performance and comfort in a tastefully understated package. The 2016 Infiniti Q50 is an appealing luxury sedan with improved power and more feel in its "steer-by-wire" system, but a bit more enthusiast flavor would make it a better sport sedan.
