Lavish standard equipment is the norm in Infiniti vehicles, and the 2011 M won't be any different.
Leather seating is standard, along with 10-way power seats with memory and heating up front; keyless entry and push-button start, with memory for audio, navigation and climate settings; a hard-drive navigation system; an AM/FM/six-CD/XM sound system with USB connectivity; Bluetooth; a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel; and a moonroof.
The M56 and M56x add Bose audio, the heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats standard; they also gets standard Bluetooth streaming, voice-activated navigation, XM traffic and weather with Zagat restaurant guides; a music hard drive, and an in-dash DVD player—all of which are available on the M37.
A Sport package adds 20-inch wheels, sport seats and steering wheel, and aluminum pedal trim to rear-drive versions.
Other options will include ventilated seats; a heated steering wheel; real-time traffic; a power sunshade; quilted leather; the white-ash, silver-powdered wood trim; and a premium audio system with surround-sound speakers mounted in the front seats.
The audio systems have stunning clarity, but like almost every other vehicle I’ve tested this year, the Bluetooth streaming feature doesn’t allow the steering-wheel controls to switch tracks on my iPhone. Is it Apple’s notoriously touchy attitude at work here too?
