Comparative Test: Acura TL and Infiniti G37 Part III

January 15, 2015 at 18:49

Acura TL weighs 112 pounds and has a longer transmission G37 with fewer gears. This was the reason that Acura has demonstrated quite mediocre results during a high-speed test drive. It accelerated to 96 km/h for 6.7 seconds and traveled 400-meter distance in 15 seconds at a speed of 151 km/h.
Almost 60% of the weight of this 1782-pound car is lying on its front wheels. Therefore, we have noticed a rather weak handling balance Acura TL – on sharp turns clearly visible under steer steering.
Powerful four-wheel drive TL sports sedan that provides good maneuverability. Acura gained 0,93g on skid pads and drive through the slalom at a speed of 108 mph. Let’s face it, it’s very good results. Next Acura continued to please us. During the test drive this vehicle brake system took only 32 meters braking distance to a complete stop at a speed of 96 km/h whatever it was, but the 2009 Acura TL SH-AWD – it really is a car with character.

Comparative Test: Acura TL and Infiniti G37 Part II

It is worth saying that the interior Acura TL is slightly superior of the salon G37 on beauty, and on spacious. However, this feeling is very visual, thanks to the ergonomically designed front panel (in particular, TL has a multi-function display instead of the usual touchscreen G37). Quality plastic and soft leather interior Acura very well perceived visually and to the touch. Numerous buttons and controls on the front of cars have a convenient size and intuitive interface.
Despite a very good four-wheel drive system of TL, this car can unlikely surpass by the performance of heavy duty iron monster Infiniti G37. Acura has a quite traditional 3.7 liter engine V6, which squeezes up to 305 horsepower and 273 Nm of torque. This is a very good performance, but they are clearly lagging behind the power characteristics of Infiniti.

Infiniti has created a four-wheel drive version of the G37, for all-season driving a sedan, which is quite logical opposite of its opponent’s four-wheel drive at least Acura TL SH-AWD. As for pure performance, here in 2009 Infiniti G37 Journey clearly has no equal.
With regard to the equipment of this vehicle, it is at a very high level. G37 has a solid Sport option package, which includes summer tires, and 46 cm. wheels, limited-slip differential, additional controllers for transmission (which are mounted on the steering wheel), more powerful brakes, a frisky steering and stiffer suspension. Our bright red test Infinity G37 sedan also had the Premium option package and Navigation package. All of these pleasures of life brought the total cost of the vehicle up to $ 41.265.

Today’s fight: Audi A5 3.2 FSI Quattro and Infiniti G37S. 3.7 Part II

January 9, 2015 at 23:57

Infiniti’s accelerator pedal a little progress is extremely responsive – no habit car reacts excessively active. Similarly, acts and gearbox, ready on demand to include the driver downshifts. As you become accustomed to the car begins to like this character – “Infinity” just follows orders without question and refinements. Powerful coupe is unthinkable without effective brakes. “Infiniti” showed very good, but not excellent results. The work of ABS against the background of German rival is coarse and less effective.
First the suspension of Infiniti seems too hard, but with increasing speed sensation changes. Not that added comfort, but feel: the car confidently “costs” on rough roads. Surprisingly good was and power consumption.
