Forget that the 2012 Infiniti G Sedans are somewhat practical four-door designs; they can provide all the sensory thrills and dynamic satisfaction of full-fledged sports cars.

Don't look to hard for visual differences between the 2012 Infiniti G25 and the mightier G37 Sedans, because there aren't any significant ones on the outside. However under the hood there's a 2.5-liter V-6, making 218 horsepower--a 110-hp deficit versus the G37.

While that might set off warning bells that the G25 is underpowered (by most accounts, it isn't), all the rest of the package remains delightfully the same--with a tight sport suspension, great dynamics and poise, and quite possibly the best steering among sport sedans. Unfortunately, you can't get the G25 with a manual gearbox; it comes only with the seven-speed automatic, which we've noted is an excellent companion with the larger engine in enthusiastic driving but a little lumpy and indecisive around town.

With its smaller engine, the G25 manages somewhat better fuel economy of up to 20 mpg city, 29 highway—that's a mile or two per gallon better than the G37. You won't want to choose the G25 on gas mileage alone, but it could be a good deal for those who want the features, appearance, and handling of the G37 but don't need all the power.

The G25 comes in Base and Journey trims, and in the latter it can be optioned with most of the same luxury and tech features as the G37. Both the G25 and G37 can be had with all-wheel drive—and as such they're called the G25x and G37x.
