Yonkers, New York – The updated Infiniti G37 topped Consumer Reports’ tests of upscale sports sedans, despite facing strong competition from three newly-designed vehicles. With an “Excellent” overall road test score, the G37 remains the highest-rated vehicle in the category.

The G37 was tested against the redesigned Acura TSX, Audi A4, and all-new Volkswagen Passat CC, all of which achieved “Very Good” overall test scores.

“The Infiniti G37 continues its reign as top in the class,” said David Champion, senior director of the Auto Test Center. “The drivetrain is still the highlight of the car, delivering very strong performance while getting better fuel economy than the previous generation. The G37 is very quick, and handling is agile and fun.”

The G37 and TSX are the only vehicles from this month’s test group that are rated “Recommended.” Consumer Reports only recommends vehicles that have performed well in its tests, have at least average predicted reliability based on its survey, and performed at least adequately if crash-tested or included in a government rollover test.
