I test drove the G37, BMW 3 series and the Audi A4 and this car beat them hands down. I was blown away that this car beat such noteworthy competitors. The power/punch of the car, the throaty sound of the engine, the opulence of the interior (outside of the stereo/technology) and the edgy look of the car was just terrific. Additionally, I see so many A4s and 3 series BMW's on the road, I know for good reason, but they seem very trendy to me. Downsides are the cheaper feel to the interior controls and stereo, as well as public perception around "American Made" vehicles vs the vaunted European and Japanese competition.
- Acceleration - Throaty sound of engine - Handling - External Styling - Sport Wheels/Styling - Rear seat/Passenger room - Trunk room - Warranty/Certified Program
- As always, interior technology, fit and finish. Improved, but still not in line with Audi or Infiniti... BUT, the Audi A6 system with Nav and the BMW I- drive system both are so bad that they turned me away from those cars
