2012 INFINITI M37 Overview
Luxurious appointments, performance, handling, high-tech gadgetry, and an impressive engine highlight 2012 Infiniti M37 sedan.
There aren’t any significant changes for 2012 – just more of the same, which in this case is a good thing. The M37 is powered by a 330-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 that generates 270 pounds-feet of torque for impressive acceleration. The M37’s engine is paired to a rear-wheel seven-speed automatic transmission. For all-wheel drive, there is the M37x which is reviewed separately on this site. To customize your driving experience, Infiniti Drive allows drivers to select various drivetrain settings including Standard, Eco, Sport, and Snow modes via a controller. The Eco mode is probably the most interesting because it indicates how efficiently you are driving via a yellow-to-green gauge and also provides resistance to the accelerator if it detects inefficient driving to help keep fuel economy higher.
Other performance highlights include available four-wheel steering, sport-tuned suspension, and 14-inch front and 13.8-inch rear disc brakes. The 2012 Infiniti M37 receives 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway and competes with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series.
The exterior of the 2012 M37 received a redesign last year so the large grille, standard dual-exhaust pipes, 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, and power-folding mirrors carry-over this year. For a more menacing look, opt for 20-inch wheels, darker grill and headlight fixtures, and a unique bumper.
Inside, the 2012 Infiniti M37 has a spacious, luxurious, and tech-driven interior. Leather upholstery, power front seats, a moonroof, push-button start, backup camera, and USB/iPod connectivity come standard, while a hard drive-based navigation system that provides real-time traffic info, Birdview perspective control, and enhanced 3D building graphics on a seven-inch color display is optional. A 16-speaker Bose Studio Surround sound system joins a heated steering wheel and heated/cooled front seats as available equipment.
Infiniti has taken safety technology to the next level with the Lane Departure Prevention system, which helps keep the 2012 M37 in its lane, while a blind spot detection system warns drivers when they are merging into an occupied lane. An electronic stability system, traction control, antilock brakes, active front head restraints, and six airbags all come standard.
Keep you and your family safe, while enjoying the thrills of driving in the agile 2012 Infiniti M37 luxury sedan.
