2011 Infiniti M56: Does the Bike Fit?
May 23, 2011
It's baaack. After a brief hiatus, our "Does the Bike Fit?" series has been renewed for a second thrilling season. Popular demand (meaning no more than one Edmunds staffer expressed interest. And no, it wasn't Jacquot; he already thinks he knows all there is to know about bicycles) pretty much required we keep it going.
Today we examine the Infiniti M56. So, does the bike fit?
As you can see, yes, the bike does fit. But it's a bit of a squeeze-fest to stuff a mountain bike with cheater 29-inch wheels into the back seat, despite the fact the M56 is actually a good-sized sedan.
Now, why the back seat, you ask? Because the M56 doesn't have folding rear seats, so there's no ability to use a trunk pass-through. This is quite inconvenient for lazy automotive editors who prefer to just throw their bikes into test cars with nary a thought. Or a bike rack.
No test cars were harmed in the making of this blog.
