Coupe

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.

Aggressive, streamlined, sporty, and yet tall, the Infiniti FX packages crossover functionality into one of the most graceful forms on the market—and its performance matches.

Convertible

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.

Handling is perhaps the 3-Series’ best trait; it should be high on any driver’s list of fun-yet-practical cars. The redesign is largely successful, too, with a more premium look, better materials, and on the comfort front, more rear-seat space.

The Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is serious. Serious about performance despite also being serious about luxury accomodations. Serious about value. Serious about style though it can haul the kids and the groceries better than any sedan.

The 2013 Corvette accelerates and handles as you’d expect: very, very well. Inside, the Corvette shows a bit of why it costs so little for so much performance, however.
