The soft, flowing lines of the redesigned M...instantly make the 2009 M appear dated, narrow and even a bit frumpy.

Inside Line »

...A richer ambiance than its predecessor.

Motor Trend »

...An optional deluxe touring package...is dressed up with hand-finished, white ash wood sprinkled with (get this!) actual silver powder. It may sound a little Liberace, but it’s actually quite subtle. And pretty gorgeous.

Squint hard enough and you can see what the Porsche Panamera should have looked like.

Autoblog »

...Both models are in fact quite handsome and stand out far more than the previous, anonymous Mr. M.

The Basics:

The 2011 Infiniti M sedans are on a mission: to erase some of the distance shoppers put between the German super sedans and Nissan's most luxurious and powerful four-doors. With subtle, gorgeous good looks and truly great handling, the M37 and M56 arrive none too soon to replace the dynamic-driving, but not as dynamic-looking, 2010 M35 and M45.

At a base price well under $50,000 and a top end higher than $60,000, the 2011 Infiniti M37 and M56 will compete with the Audi A6, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the BMW 5-Series, the Lexus GS, the Jaguar XF, and even the Hyundai Genesis and Lincoln MKS—but it’s the E-Class, 5-Series and XF that find themselves outgunned in many ways by the new M.

Likes:

  • Sleek and sensual lines
  • Gorgeous, functional dash
  • Super-sedan handling
  • All-wheel drive on the options list
  • Real back-seat room

Dislikes:

  • M37’s powerful but grumbly
  • A little gadget-happy
  • Status seekers still don’t respect it
