|Type||Steering Wheel controller|
|Successor||Logitech G29 and Logitech G920|
The Logitech G27 is an electronic steering wheel designed for Sim racing video games on the PC, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. It uses a USB interface, and is based upon the previous G25, with some new features including the use of helical gearing instead of the previous straight gears used on the G25. As of December 2015, the Logitech G27 is no longer sold by Logitech, in favor of the newer G29 and G920 steering wheels now offered by Logitech.

- 2 force feedback motors.
- One set of gears between motors and wheel, including an anti-backlash design.
- 2 paddleshifters.
- 6 buttons.
- Dual-motor force feedback with helical gears that produces less noise than the G25, and provides better steering response.

- A shifter unit:
- 8 buttons.
- 1 D-pad.
- A gear stick with a six-speed 'H' pattern gearbox. Reverse is selected by pressing down and changing to sixth.
