2013 Infiniti M56x vs. 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Infiniti M56x offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Infiniti M56x and the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Infiniti M56x, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Infiniti M56x will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Infiniti M56x and the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Infiniti M56x is a little wider than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Infiniti M56x, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Infiniti M56x does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

Handling
The Infiniti M56x has about the same turning radius as the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti M56x has a much more powerful engine than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti M56x and the BMW ActiveHybrid 3. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Infiniti M56x will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

Warranty
The basic warranty for the Infiniti M56x offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 in terms of months/miles.
