Infiniti M37 Test Drive
There's been an abundance of automobiles in my life this month.
It began with an invitation from Chevy to attend a retreat in a 2014 Chevrolet Impala. I took my buddy Elvis and we had a blast.
Then, for my wedding, Ford kindly lent me a 2013 Ford Edge in tuxedo black. It was perfectly roomy for hauling a ton of stuff to and from the venue.
Last week, I zipped around the city in a 2013 Infiniti M37xS. It was great fun to experience such luxury after 13 years in a Mazda Protege.
Now, I'm driving a Hyundai Genesis Sedan and my son and I have a road trip to Huntsville planned. I'm told there's a "blood-pumping" 348 hp from the 3.8 GT engine. I'll report back how it all went.
No, this isn't the new normal, just a perfect storm of test drives that has left my old beater feeling neglected. The month of cars is winding down.
I've had meetings downtown all week, and usually that would put me on the TTC. This week, however, I decided to drive the Infiniti M37 and enjoy the luxury while I can.
Spending some time in the morning in a car with SiriusXM has given me a chance to hear my pals Humble and Fred live on channel 168.
Humble and Fred live on morning radio? What a novel idea...
I paid a visit yesterday to Infiniti Canada's head office where I received a thorough demo of a 2013 Infiniti M37xS. They also lent me one for a week so I could see for myself what this luxury automobile can do.
It may surprise you to learn that I don't often drive luxury cars like the Infiniti M37xS. This model competes directly with the BMW 5 Series. It's way out of my price range, but you can feel that with every kilometre you drive. It's stylish, comfortable and fully loaded with a 3.7L, 24-valve, DOHC V6.
I'm only on day two of driving the 2013 Infiniti M37xS and so far it's feeling like more of a sports car than a 4-door sedan, and that's a good thing.
