You couldn't lease a G37 for that when they CR did the rating. The G37 is old and the new model will be out soon. Merc and BMW already have their new models out. It's not a fair comparison. I've...

So the fact that the Infiniti suffers from more road noise, wind noise, and gets the worst gas mileage in it's class is "at-the-limit driving" stuff. Or the fact that has the tightest cabin? I see...

That is just it. Wind noise should be identical in the G25 and G37 but it wasn't and CR reviewed the two cars differently. Since the G sereies are known to have wind noise issues CR shoudl have...

I gave up on CR long before the F30 review. The fact that they find the new IDrive system "confusing" says a lot about their ability to judge cars.

The A4 is a fine car and is close to or on par with the 3 series. I have no issue admitting that and considered buying one. It just looks too much like the Jetta for my tastes.

Even though it is an Audi specific chassis, it was designed to utilize the 2.0T set-up (also used in VW) which is FWD/AWD.

Since Audi shares tech with VW and virtually every VW is FWD to start out with, it's a pretty safe assumption that the Audis are designed as FWD/AWD.
