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 stylish 2009 Nissan Maxima has the looks—and acceleration specs—of a sport sedan but lacks the high-performance driving feel to match.
