The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Infiniti M Series represents a compromise between sport and luxury—but a pleasant one that many shoppers should contemplate. The 5-Series sedans and wagons aren't the most practical or the best values in their class, but they're very enjoyable to drive.
