The 2013 Infiniti M37xs is part of the fourth generation Infiniti M series of luxury cars from the Japanese car company Nissan. The M series has gone through numerous changes over the years, especially when it comes to the exterior body shape. It is said the curves that are now part of the 2013 Infiniti M37xs were inspired by cars like the Jaguar and Maserati.
Under the hood
The M37xs is powered by a peppy 330 horsepower 3.7 L V6 engine, delivering remarkable performance, yet still surprisingly efficient fuel economy. The engine is paired with a 7 speed automatic transmission with sport shift package (shifting paddles on the wheel or using the gearshift).
The 3.7 L V6 has an all aluminum block reducing the vehicle weight and also features variable valve lifting technology, precisely controlling the air/fuel mixture. This helps reduce gas consumption levels to 12 L/100km (city) and 8.3 L/100km (highway).
The Ins and Outs
The interior of the 2013 Infiniti M37xs is all about luxury and comfort for its driver and passengers. The driver and front passenger are pampered by heated and cooled, 10-way power seats with adjustable lumbar support. All of the seats are luxuriously covered in soft leather for added comfort and elegance. Infiniti includes their proprietary Active Noise Control system which uses noise from four speakers mounted in the doors to cancel out the road noise.
The optional Premium Package adds a next level in technology with an 8 inch touch screen display with Infiniti controller to access navigation, climate, maintenance reminders and comfort/convenience features. An added bonus is the NavTraffic system which provides real time traffic and weather updates. The premium package also includes a Bose audio system with 10 speakers to deliver premium quality sound.
The exterior of the 2013 Infinti M37xs comes standard with many premium features including a power moonroof, power sunshade, power folding side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers and high intensity xenon headlights. Additional features included in the technology package consist of the AFS front headlight system that automatically swivels and levels the headlights and lighted door handles. You can get the M37xs in six elegant colors; Malbec Black, Platinum Ice, Diamond Graphite, Aspen Pearl, Storm Front Gray and Black Obsidian.
How It Drives
To drive the M37X was a joy. It lived up to the Infiniti brand without a doubt. Driving in the winter months I find that weather is a major safety concern but the way that the M37x drive and the safety features that were put into the car I felt very safe. If you have ever driven in winter months in Canada you know that if you do not have faith in your automobile then you probably will not put it on the road. I had no such issues with the M37x in fact it was the opposite I found I would be running to the store or volunteering to drive just so I could drive. The acceleration and handling were both very smooth and easy to control. The suspension was great and I barely notice which to my is one of the best thing because some of my passengers become motion sick very easily. I was very happy overall with the M37x and would of loved to had it for a little bit longer because not all cars in the class give what is offered by the 37x.
The Executive’s Choice
The Infiniti brand has long been a favorite of executives all over world, and with all the modern technology, comfort, convenience and power it really is no surprise. As the luxury division of Nissan it competes against the other Japanese luxury brands like Lexus (Toyota) and Acura (Honda).
If you are looking for a high end luxury car for your next vehicle purchase you need to consider the 2013 Infiniti M37xs and you will see for yourself why it’s a popular choice.
