BMW 5-Series F10 535i is perfect choice for everyday vehicle. It offers great comfort, superb performance and low fuel consumption, considering its power. However, Infiniti has recently introduced the M37S, which offers nearly the same qualities.
The F10 535i is powered by 3.0 liter in-line six-cylinder petrol engine equipped with , twin-scroll turbocharger. The engine features BMW’s EfficientDynamics technologies including VALVETRONIC throttle-less intake technology and High Precision direct injection. The result is 306HP (225 kW) at 5,800RPM and 400Nm (296 lb-ft) of torque at just 1,200RPM. 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The engine is mated to an 8-speed ZF Automatic gearbox. The fuel consumption is 10.4 liters per 100 km in city and 6.3 liters per 100 km on the highway. The combined cycle is 8.1 liters per 100 km.
The Infiniti M37S is powered by a 3.7-litre V6 petrol with VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift). It develops 320HP (236 kW) at 7,000RPM and 360Nm (267 lb-ft) of torque at 5,200RPM. 0-100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox. The fuel consumption is 14.9 liters per 100 km in city, 7.4 liters on the highway and a combined cycle of 10.2 liters per 100 km.
So, the easy math is that the Infiniti is a lot more “thirsty” than the BMW, but still offers decent performance qualities. Other minus is that the M37S is slightly more expensive than the BMW.
Still, the Infiniti M37S is a great choice and which is better is up to the customer’s taste.
