We all Lexus but there’s another brand from a Japanese that, had things gone to would also be looking on more than 20 years luxury cars to Australian

It didn’t, though. The Infiniti Nissan’s rival to the game-changing LS400 of the early 1990s, and the brand soon disappeared the local scene.

The same didn’t happen elsewhere, the US, where Infiniti gained a and grew to encompass a range of equal (at least in quantity) to its rival.

Now Nissan is having another go at its luxury brand here with three models, a more comprehensive attack. We the mid-sized M prestige sedan to see how it up.

Price and equipment

The M range include four-cylinder models so it has no to price-leading petrol and diesel offered by Audi, BMW and other

But the cheapest model, the petrol-powered M37 here, more than its starting price of $85,900 on-road costs, matching the climate control, sat nav, Bluetooth and other doodads by its competitors and then upping the with heated/cooled seats, steering wheel and a reversing

There is another M37, the S Premium, which is mechanically different with four-wheel and sports suspension and also has toys and a lot more safety

There’s also the diesel-powered (starting at $87,900 for the GT and $99,900 for the S and a petrol/electric hybrid model, the which is available in just one level (GT Premium) and starts $99,900.

Unlike most Infiniti doesn’t offer a version and it hasn’t been by the ANCAP crash-test regime though with six airbags, control, parking sensors and camera there’s nothing to it wouldn’t be competitive.

The M37’s 3.7-litre V6 has the herbs to push it standstill to 100km/h in just 6.2 making it a bit quicker than a (it does it in 6.3 seconds) and significantly than a A6 2.8 FSI or Jag XF 3.0 V6 (they do it in 8.1 and 8.3 seconds

Its refinement or economy aren’t as as its performance. Work the engine and it’s particularly intrusive (if not as as the similar engine in the Nissan and its 10.2L/100km official economy is way off the class-leading 528i. Still, as we with our 10.4L/100km test it is at least achievable.

How it drives

The ingredients are there to the M37 a good drive. It’s with sharp steering and an ability to keep turning in other cars would be their noses wide.

the M37’s adjustable suspension to mode and it not only corners less slop but has a more and comfortable ride, though its struggles with big bumps Tyre noise is also a companion on coarse-chip.

Comfort and

Distinctly swoopy design and nice touches like Japanese ash wood trim and a leather dash binnacle the M37 with a look and feel way the mainstream.

But it doesn’t run as deep as some cars. The white Infiniti stitching looks tacky and the computer has a simple duo-tone rather than the flash units now offered by most

There are functional idiosyncrasies, like a foot-operated parking and touch-screen sat-nav unit clear and easy to use but too far away to without a stretch. The front are luxuriously padded but a bit flat, the eats into headroom a problem for most, but taller will notice) and there’s a of small-item storage once you get the cupholders and big centre console

Back-seat occupants enjoy a reclined, lounging bench good leg room but head and space could be more Access to the respectably cavernous could be better, too.
