    Shifts are heard in engine pitch but rarely felt, and highway kickdown is quick and free of gear-hunting. Infiniti Ms can be had with a V-6 or V-8, two-wheel or all-wheel drive, and a five-speed automatic. Its a good car for the price I paid for it. If you want a used, reliable, luxurious car this is it. The cabin trim — aluminum or optional wood — is the real deal, not synthetic.

    INFINITI M35 Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos - The Car Connection

    Its V-6 churns out fluid power with no peaky bursts or low-end sluggishness, and under hard acceleration its high-pitched whine should be music to any gearhead. Credit the engine, a longtime award winner from Infiniti parent Nissan. Though the M's five-speed automatic is a gear or two short of the competition, it works just as well, if not better. It holds lower gears tenaciously It holds lower gears tenaciously at lower speeds, refusing the mileage bait of an early upshift while you're still on the gas.

    Shifts are heard in engine pitch but rarely felt, and highway kickdown is quick and free of gear-hunting. Around town, lower gears arrive almost instinctively — accelerating out of a corner or pulling around a semi, for instance, you're rarely caught flat-footed in a higher gear. Jaguar's ZF automatic comes to mind in the same league, and I hope Infiniti preserves this sort of performance in its upcoming seven-speed automatic. If the M35 is confident, the M45 is authoritative. Don't let the mere horsepower difference fool you — with an extra liter of displacement , the M45's V-8 boasts a torque peak that's rpm lower, with 68 more pounds-feet of twist.

    It trades the M35's finesse for brute hang-the-tail-out power at pretty much any speed. In my brief time with the M45 — it was a model — I found the acceleration unmanageable at times. It would come in spurts, particularly through second and third gear, giving the car a restless feeling on city streets. If your commute involves roads that are open enough for the M45 to stretch its legs, though, it could be serious fun. The M35x and M45x utilize an all-wheel-drive system that transfers power forward or backward electronically.

Despite my test car having the Sport package — which augments the four-wheel-independent suspension with sportier tuning, bigger wheels and high-performance summer tires — ride quality was livable.

    Highway road noise remains tolerable up to 75 mph — above that, wind and road noise quickly encroach — and the car's chassis dispatches bumps with modest noise and few reverberations. If you live near curvy roads you'd do well to drive them in the M. The steering wheel moves with a lighter touch than in Infiniti's smaller G35, and though it doesn't feel as precise in prolonged bends — highway cloverleafs, curvy backroads — the turn-in precision for lane changes and most city driving is in the same league.

    All told, the steering feel encourages twisty-road driving in a way a Volvo S80 or Mercedes E-Class cannot. Body roll remains well in check, and at its limits the M displays good grip and even better balance.

    The Sport package adds Infiniti's Rear Active Steer, which power-adjusts the suspension hardware to angle the rear wheels slightly while the car is turning. The purported result is swifter handling. I couldn't tell when the system was operating — or what benefits it added — but the M never once came off as unresponsive , so evidently it did its job.

    Naturally, models without the Sport package probably display different ride and handling characteristics. All-wheel-drive models increase the M's turning circle to Those figures are right on par with the competition. The rear-wheel-drive Lexus GS carves the narrowest circle, at Suffice it to say the M looks much like it did before, though certain elements now recall the redesigned G Models with the Sport package get inch alloy wheels, while others have inchers.

    Originally lauded for its quality compared with Infiniti's previous efforts, the M's cabin has held up well thus far. Interior surfaces aren't as sumptuous as those in the E-Class or Jaguar XF, but the dashboard rises to the windshield in steps, giving the cabin a much roomier feel than either car. Materials quality keeps with the competition: There are leather wrappings around the door pulls and chrome runners along the steering wheel. The cabin trim — aluminum or optional wood — is the real deal, not synthetic.
