2011 Infiniti M56: Playing Favorites
July 29, 2011
As I was eagerly making my way to the M56 after work the other night, I realized a couple of things.
The first thing is that I really like driving this car. The mill feels like it's bursting with power and is responsive to even the slightest throttle inputs. Every maneuver becomes a recipe for enjoyment.
The second thing is that I like driving this car more than I like driving our 528i. I'd never have guessed that I'd wind up feeling that way. They're both big cars, but the M56 feels more spry, less ponderous.
Our M56 is a good-looking sedan within and without, but I still prefer the chilly Germanic aesthetic seen in the 5 Series (and the E-Class), and that's definitely something I'd consider if I were shopping in this segment. When it comes to driving dynamics, though, the M56 really tickles me, more so than the 5.
