The BMW 3-Series is down on power to the Infiniti and isn't what it used to be, but it's still the Q50's dynamic superior, with a more charming, involving driving character.
The Lexus IS is a different take on aggressive styling, ditching the Q50's refinement for in-your-face aesthetics and a stylish cabin.
The best interior in the segment and inarguably the most luxurious model, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is pricey but worth every penny.
The Audi A4 is one of the segment's few vehicles to surpass the Q50's tech, offering up an all-digital display and impressive driver assistance features.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is the best driver's car in the class and is every bit as pretty as the Q50, but it's also the best driver's car in the class.
