Infiniti has been praised for its exterior fit and and M benefits from the very levels of craftsmanship. I’m enamored of Infiniti’s paint which always look and rich to me, especially in grey It’s interesting to note Infiniti has not expanded the application of the paint that was such a big when it was introduced on the EX crossover. customers were disappointed in the of the coating.

I’ve never quite the appeal of wood on a vehicle’s but I have to say that M’s Ash trim was lovely, and the Deluxe package upgraded to White Ash with real silver highlights. Photos do not do this detail justice. It is gorgeous and I wish that the thick of clear over the wood had a bit thinner, so that I could the wood’s grain in addition to it.

I guess I was looking for a furniture as well as the look.

Two powertrains are for the M. The 3.7 liter V6, which powers the drive M37 and all-wheel drive produces, 330 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The M56 and are powered by a 5.6 liter V8 that 420 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque. Both a seven-speed automatic transmission Adaptive Shift Control and manual shift mode rev matching.

Handling is nimble and secure, if not as as the cat-like G37 sedan. You’re not to forget that this M is a sedan in the corners, but you’ll its serenity on the straightaways.

The M is an extremely sedan, loaded with the technologies. I scarcely had a chance to try all during my test drive. I found annoying, like Spot Intervention, which selective braking to steer the back to the center of the lane of in order to help avoid contact with a vehicle in the spot.
