The 2013 Infiniti M37 is a four-door, midsize, luxury sedan that blends performance and style with good craftsmanship to create a stunningly beautiful masterpiece that is truly a hard act to follow. The Infiniti M models, which include the M37, M56, and M Hybrid, remain a showcase for advanced technologies that make them safer and more enjoyable to be in. Drivers get the satisfaction of a welcoming cockpit that creates a refreshing experience each and every time behind the wheel, while passengers enjoy luscious seating with immense room to maneuver.
New For 2013
All M models now have auto-dimming exterior mirrors and an automatic trunk ""cincher."" The Sport Package is offered with all-wheel-drive models, and the Premium Package now includes a rear sonar system and Infiniti Connection. Sport stone is now offered as an interior color for Sport models. A 20-inch performance tire and wheel package replaces the previous 18-inch wheel package.
The 2013 Infiniti M37 has approximately a 195-inch length, 73-inch width, 59-inch height, 114-inch wheelbase, and 3850-pound curb weight. Its sporty appearance, highlighted by the shape of its fenders and wave-style doors, give it a look unlike any other car on the road. The flowing contours of its body appear to have been carved by the wind. A highly efficient aerodynamic shape is created by combining an athletic stance with a long, low, elegantly-sculpted hood and high rear deck. Exterior features include a power tinted sliding glass moonroof with one-touch open and close, dual exhaust with polished tips, and heated power-folding door mirrors. An available Sport Package adds 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels with all-season tires.
Interior & Cargo
When designing the interior of the 2013 Infiniti M37, the company sought to center its focus on the individual operating the car, presenting a functional design that blends precision with artistry, innovation with comfort, and supports the enhancement of driving performance and passenger contentment. Drivers will surely fall in love with the instrument panel, which features Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges, a seven-inch color display that outputs vehicle information and an analog clock. Their affection will remain uplifted as they sink into 10-way power-adjustable heated seats that offer two-way power lumbar support. Front passengers share the same luxury. Drivers can also take advantage of individual Intelligent Keys, which are geared to remember settings for climate control, audio, and navigation. The rear seat is as comfortable as the front, and there is an ample amount of leg and headroom. Trunk space is adequate, measuring about 15 cubic feet. For people seeking a higher level of technology and features, a Premium Package adds a touchscreen display on the dash that transmits real-time traffic information and weather, allows for streaming of audio onto Bluetooth compatible devices, and includes a 10-speaker Bose audio system.
The 2013 Infiniti M37 has a wide range of safety features, including a number of innovative technologies that provide enhanced security by monitoring conditions, helping avoid collisions, and protecting passengers when one occurs. Two such systems, Infiniti’s Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), function by using a small camera that is installed behind the windshield to look for lane markers ahead of the vehicle, calculate position in relation to those same lane markers, and then warn the driver of a possible unintended lane departure with an audible buzzer and visual display. Also available, as part of the Technology Package, are Blind Spot Intervention (BSI) and Blind Spot Warning (BSW) systems that use audio warning sounds and visual indicators to let drivers know if a vehicle is detected in the blind spot area.
The M37 is equipped with anti-lock brakes on all four wheels, along with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist. Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and a Traction Control System (TCS) work to provide improved handling. There are driver and front-passenger front and side-impact airbags. Overhead airbags are present for all seats to protect occupants’ heads during a rollover or side collision. Front seats have active head restraints with four-way manual adjustments to help protect from injuries related to whiplash. Seat belts have pretensioners that automatically tighten to help restrain passengers in the event of an accident.
Every single 2013 Infiniti M37 is powered by a 3.7-liter, 24-valve, aluminum-alloy, V-6 engine that pumps out a whopping 330 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. It is mated with a seven-speed, automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control and manual shift mode with Downshift Rev Matching, making for smoother shifts. Swift acceleration provides thrills and chills. Zero to 60 mph is accomplished in just six seconds. Average fuel economy is 18/26 mpg city/highway driving and 21 mpg combined.
The M37 is available in either rear or all-wheel drive. A unique feature is the Infiniti Drive Mode Selector, which is an integrated control system allowing drivers to choose from four driving modes, depending on road conditions or mood, by using a dial switch planted on the center console. The suspension has an independent double-wishbone design in front teamed with an independent multi-link system in the rear. It provides a smooth ride with minimal vibrations. The Four-Wheel Active Steer (4WAS), which is included in a Sport Package, provides lower steering effort at low to medium speeds and an even feel at higher speeds.
