It’s not all about performance with the 6-Series, even in the M6. There’s a softer, more well-equipped side to the 2013 6er, and it encourages good times behind the wheel even when the pace slackens.

In fact, the 2013 M5 is every bit as good as its non-M counterparts on the street. So, it’s it’s almost perfect.

The 2013 Scion FR-S is surprisingly good. It displays a fantastic balance, with a more neutral setup than we’ve found in many cars priced at twice the FR-S’s starting point of $24,930. It’s simply a joy to drive—a real sports car.

The Nissan 370Z remains a worthwhile and engaging sports car—especially for those without a world-beating budget. Price isn’t the 2013 370Z’s only strong suit, though it remains a relative performance bargain.

With its shark-like styling re-interpreted in an all-new vehicle for 2012, the BMW 6-Series is better than ever, improving in almost every measure over the previous model.

Nimble, comfortable, surprisingly roomy given its compact exterior, and fantastically light weight, the 2013 BRZ is about as perfect a package as we could ask for.

Sedan

Almost coupe-like in profile, the 2012 Infiniti G37 is a modern, powerful sedan with just enough aggression without descending into caricature. For an enthusiast driver, the G37 is one of the best bets around.

Hatchback

OK, so it’s fuel efficient – but how is it to drive? Surprisingly good. It exhibits a lot less body roll, and though that won’t help it grip a corner any harder thanks in part to its low-rolling-resistance tires, it’s more comfortable swinging around 90-degree bends in town.

The 2012 Infiniti G37 Convertible is a potent performe,r and its interior is rich and luxurious. It’s a convertible, however, which means space isn’t abundant—particularly in the rear seat.
