Car and Driver: M45 Wins

Postby Jesda » Wed Mar 23, 2005 11:59 am

Car and Driver compares the 2006 M45 to MB E-class, BMW 5-series, STS, Audi A6, Jaguar S-type, Acura RL, and Lexus GS430.

Guess who wins?

Edit: Oops, I put the winner in the topic.

A revelation for the non-SUV crowd? (Jesda)

Grat scan! Funny, while the new ones are faster and have more gegaws, the article really makes me want to keep the G50 (and FY33) and upgrade the wheels, tires and brakes. I wouldn't settle for 16 mpg on the highway when I can get 20+ mpg at high double figure average in complete comfort.

It's a great step forward for Infiniti (Note to Corporate: Don't let Audi use the Q designation yet!), and it seems to roundly beat the GS is all reviews. Now that's what I call I-finesse!

Seems like it needs the V8 5 and E series for serious competition. Just don't include price, or it's game over for Infiniti.

The final two sentences speak volumes:

"The M45 rocks. Game over."

The only one that really surprised me was beating the new RL. The others have gone downhill...ESPECIALLY Audi.

I'm really glad that the new M is a real Infiniti. I hope that the Q replacement is even better.
