Used Car: 2013 Infiniti M Review
The 2013 Infiniti M’s sporty handling and powerful acceleration should keep you entertained behind the wheel, critics said, though they cautioned that it has a firmer ride than many rivals.
Auto writers reported that the 2013 Infiniti M37’s standard V6 engine delivers strong acceleration. The M56 model has a V8 engine that test drivers said is even more potent. A seven-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard and all-wheel drive is available. According to the EPA, the 2013 Infiniti M37 gets 18/26 mpg city/highway, which is worse than many competitors' ratings. Reviewers wrote that the Infiniti M is more agile than many 2013 luxury cars, with cat-like cornering reflexes and sharp steering. However, they noted that buyers should expect a firmer ride, especially with the available sport suspension.
Critics wrote that the 2013 Infiniti M has an appealing cabin with clean lines and nice materials. Some automotive journalists noted that rear-seat headroom is lacking for taller passengers, but they were pleased with the rear-seat legroom. At 14.9 cubic feet, the M has a bit less trunk space than most cars in the class. Standard features include a power moonroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a USB port, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a rearview camera, proximity key, push-button start and a 7-inch infotainment display screen. Available features include ventilated front seats, a 16-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system, adaptive cruise control, navigation, lane departure warning, forward collision warning and blind spot monitoring. Reviewers wrote that the Infiniti M has one of the easiest-to-use infotainment systems on the market.
Other Cars to Consider
Reviewers agreed that the 2013 BMW 5-Series has powerful engine options and athletic handling that help make it one of the most engaging cars in the class. Both the six- and eight-cylinder models get better fuel economy than their Infiniti M counterparts.
Test drivers said the 2013 Lexus GS has both sporty handling and a comfortable ride. The V6-powered GS 350 gets better fuel economy than the M37, and it has an excellent reliability rating.
