The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Mercedes-Benz M-Class earns respect with neat styling riffs, shock-and-awe AMG power, and your choice of earth-saving powertrains. The 2011 Infiniti FX35 and FX50 put the priority on looks and performance, and it's no secret that a little utility gets sacrificed in the process.
