2014 Volkswagen Beetle vs. 2013 Infiniti G37 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Beetle than the Infiniti G37. The Infiniti G37 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Beetle.

Convenience
The Volkswagen Beetle will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Infiniti G37, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Volkswagen Beetle is clearly a better financial choice over the Infiniti G37. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Volkswagen Beetle carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Infiniti G37.

Dimensions
Since the Volkswagen Beetle is much slimmer than the Infiniti G37, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volkswagen Beetle, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Infiniti G37.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Volkswagen Beetle doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Infiniti G37.

Handling
The Volkswagen Beetle has a smaller turning radius than the Infiniti G37, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen Beetle is significantly less powerful than the Infiniti G37. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Beetle and the Infiniti G37. The Volkswagen Beetle has significantly less cargo room than the Infiniti G37, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen Beetle is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Infiniti G37.
