2011 INFINITI G vs. Its Competition

2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe 2-door Base RWD Angular Front Exterior View
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The most obvious comparison to the G37 Coupe is the BMW 3-Series coupe—though the 1-Series also stacks up.

While Bimmer enthusiasts may be aghast, they will be forced to admit that the G37 is, at the very least, a darn good competitor.

If you can go without the Infiniti owner experience and the extra seats, Nissan's own 350Z has handling that's just as brilliant.

Compared to the beautifully styled 2009 Audi TT, the G37 is a more dynamic performer.

The Audi is front-wheel drive, and this blunts the car's moves.

However, if all-wheel drive is something you're looking for, the Audi (and the BMW 3-Series) offers it, while the G37 does not.

The new Audi TTS might not be considered on the same high-performance page as the G37, but it’s actually quite the sports car.

Quick Specs
8.0
The Infiniti G37 Coupe and G37 Convertible wow with sexy exteriors and lavish interiors, along with excellent performance, but they don't always meet expectations for refinement.
8.4
The Audi A5 Coupe and Cabriolet bear one of the most elegant bodies in autodom, and drive with a light, easy touch.
8.0
The 2011 Audi TT straddles the line between sporty cars and true sports cars--or is it the DMZ?
8.4
Stunning performance is still the calling card for the 2011 BMW M3; the weight it's gained may just be a sign of its success.
8.2
A great performance car that starts just under $30,000, the 2011 Nissan 370Z comes close enough to Porsche performance to make you wonder.
