An amazing sports Hybrid Saloon

INFINITI M 3.5h GT Premium 4dr Auto (Review date: 5th November '13)

4.8

I decided to change my 370Z ## for a more comfortable executive saloon - and have enjoyed every moment of driving it. My previous cars have included a Jags, BMWs 745 and 645, numerous sports cars including a Lotus Esprit and TVR Chimera. This time around a wanted a luxury saloon coupled with great performance..

The Infiniti M35h GT Premium thoroughly serves this purpose. A quiet sophisticated ride, with the sound of the V6 (has that V8 burble sound) in the background. The eco, standard and sport setting alter the level of response; in sport mode it is an absolute rocket, after all it has the capacity to accelerate 0-60 in 5.5 #### - the fastest hybrid on the market. It is also extremely agile and will hold fast and steady around the country lanes.

The interior trim is well put together and a unique driver oriented layout enhances the experience. The seats are very comfortable, both heated and cooled. The steering wheel has a heater for those cold morning starts. The heating and cooling system is enhanced by a scent system, and the air wafts through the cabin rather than blowing it at your face.

If you love your music, the experience is enhanced by the premium Bose hifi system that reproduces music to a very high level - there are even tweeters installed on the top of the seats. Music can also be stored on a hard drive.

Safety features are in abundance including blind spot detection, lane keeping and vehicle ahead warning, adaptive cruise control and many other devices.

Sat Nav also has 3D imaging and the screen is easy to use and large.

What sold the car to me is its mutlifacited driving capabilities: a relaxing luxurious limousine for the lengthy motorway journey and a fast accelerating sports saloon for some fun driving.

Running costs are good for such a big engined car: road tax £93 for 6 month. Fuel economy from my experience: 30mpg urban, motorway 53mpg. Much depends on how you drive it.

To top it all it has the realibility of the Infiniti marque!

Fantastic and Unique

INFINITI M 3.0d S Premium 4dr Auto (Review date: 7th April '13)

4.3

I have driven the car for two years now with a mix of weekly long motorway journeys and more recently as a daily commute

The driving experience is nothing short of fantastic!

As per other reviews posted I too have owned the usual run of German execs and a couple of XJ's to boot so my standards are high... I intially planned to buy the 3.0D XF Portfolio

I popped into the Infiniti Dealership out of interest to have a look at the range.. in particular the newly launched M30D...

The dealerships (i have now visited two locations) promote a relaxed atmosphere and the staff cannot do enough for you (ala Lexus Service Standards) when you have a query or a bringing the car in for a service...

I bought the demo car i had on weekend loan!! this was based on my dealership experience; overall quality of the car (bench-marked against the 530D M Sport and the 3.0D XF Portfolio)

The car outperforms my previous 320cdi and is close to the 530D for grunt but The Germans do not come near the Infiniti in terms of trim and spec...The car handles so well and is verypoised for such a large car... the all wheel steer absolutley is one of the best features when giving the car a bit of a thrash and when putting the handling to the test...my 530d would have been on the other side of the road if i had driven in the same manner and i would not have event tried spirited driving in the Merc

Pros

Cabin environment... i have driven 6-hours straight with little/no fatigue at the end of the journey

Level of trim... is up there with Jaguar and tech is better than the Germans

Experience... a Sporting feel to the car for a large and luxurious sallon...

Cons

Phone connectivity is woeful...clients asked me to call back when im out of the car because i sound like a robot due to audio feedback..(not good) Infiniti are aware of the bluetooth issue with smartphones aka Iphone or Blackerry and after several return visits still no fix. i now use a £3.00 wired headphone and mic. when drivng

Depreciation is painful as i personally bought the car; if bought as a company car this would be less an issue.. German marques are holding £5-8k more resale value for an equivalent buy price

Best value is to buy 1-year old

but overall i am very happy ;)

forget the running costs go for it

INFINITI M 3.7 V6 4dr Auto (Review date: 26th March '13)

4.5

As with the other reviews I have just traded my my 5 30d bmw in for this car at first the running costs were putting me off but after long considaration I went for it. but I can honestly say its being the best choice I have made in ages. the car is unique it realy stands out from the normal exec motors not only does it handle better it goes like a rocket ship not to mention the gagets there not simple to use but once you get the hang of it they all work well the whole feel of the car is exeptianal. When on the motor way it eats up the miles i do around 125 miles a day and i safely say its faultless so the message is simple take a chance and go for it!

Take a chance!

INFINITI M 3.7 V6 4dr Auto (Review date: 10th January '12)

4.5

I have owned most of the obvious alternatives to infiniti including Mercedes - the CLS - and Audis too numerous to mention. I recently bought the diesel Infiniti 3L D Premium. This punt on the unknown has proved to be one of the best buying decisions I have ever made.

The spec list for the car is epic with the list of usable tech going on and on. Put aside serious time for the instruction manuals though as the functionality takes a while to take full use of.

My trade in was a Lexus so my expectations in terms of customer care were high. No problems there though as the dealer is genuinely keen to exceed expectation and will do anything reasonably asked of them.

My advice would be to take a chance. I was told by the salesman his bonus was dependent on test drives as they considered the cars sold themselves when driven. True in my case!

Not just a poshed up Nissan.

INFINITI M 3.7 V6 GT Premium 4dr Auto (Review date: 9th August '11)

4.8

I don't own one of these, but my company has one as one of its company cars, and all who have driven it love it. Especially me.

I thought Infiniti just took some Datsuns, chintzed them up a bit, bumped up the price, then put them on sale. But no. This car does have the same 3.7-litre V6 engine as a Nissan 370Z, but the car itself still doesn't feel anything like a Nissan. It actually feels like my Jaguar XJ in some ways, namely the fantastic interior with supreme comfort and some futuristic gadgets, lighting and other elements. And that really is a compliment. It's so comfortable, you could drive it across Europe without stopping much at all, and not be uncomfortable for one second of the journey. The amount of safety features and gadgets are spectacular.

If you did, you'd make surprisaingly few fuel stops. It may be a big 330bhp V6, but the MPG figures are usually in the range of 25 and 35 MPG. Yet it does 0-60mph in 5.9s, and cruises at motorway speeds exceptionally well. The 7-speed gearbox is good, too; it has 4 settings - Eco, Sport, Standard and Snow, all of which work well.

And my god does it drive well. In back-roads this rather large car slices through every corner you come across brilliantly; the grip is astounding and it doesn't feel large or understeery at all. That's all thanks to the clever 4-wheel steer system, which clearly works wonders. The experience of this with the sonorous and smooth engine and the sports setting with the gearbox makes it feel like a confortable sports car. I'm sure it could actually keep up with a 370Z.

That all said, it is £44,000 to buy brand new in 'GT Premium' trim, which does mean it's pricey. But there are several good reasons which all add up as to why it is that much. And you know what? I think hats off to my company, it's money well spent.
