2009 BMW M3 Sedan or 2011 Infiniti M56: Which Would You Choose?

September 18, 2009

Yesterday I drove our long-term BMW M3 Sedan to a double-secret location to drive the 2011 Infiniti M37 and Infiniti M56.

While there it occurred to me that the M56, which will go on sale in April, will pack about the same horsepower as our M3 (Infiniti says more than 400). Then I realized that the rear-wheel drive Infiniti (all-wheel drive will be available) will also cost about the same as the M3 sedan, which starts at $55,000.

Obviously the M56 is larger, but is that such a bad thing?

So which would you choose; M3 or M56?
