The new Infiniti M is a performance oriented vehicle. It comes with two engines V6 M37 and V8 M56. The Infiniti M37 is powered by a 3.7 liter V6 engine, which produces 330 horsepower. It is quite impressing for a V6 six cylinder engine. It is the same engine that being used in Infiniti G37.
The Infiniti M56 has 5.6 liter V8 engine, which produces massive 420 horsepower. That’s extra power and 60 horsepower more than the BMW 550 V8 and enough to challenge the supercharged version of Jaguar XF. The estimated fuel economy is also good with 18 city and 26 mpg on highway with simple V6 M37 and 17/24 for AWD M37. On other hand, M56 has 16/25 and with AWD 16/23.
Infiniti M comes with seven speed automatic transmission for both the models, which can be used manually through the steering wheel mounted paddles. It also offers four wheel drive option for the first time. The steering system is perfect to handle the large car with finesse. If you are looking for extra sharp handling, then you can add Infiniti Active Trace Technology. The braking system position aids the car in positioning during rough turns. Infiniti M is a big car, but the performance it offers like a sports car.
