Along with the new model, the 2008 Infiniti M sedans receive a sheetmetal touch-up for the new year, including new front and rear bumpers, new taillights, rear trunklid and fenders, and a new grille. The shape is handsome, and it's aging gracefully.

Cars.com champions the 2008 Infiniti M: “The 2006 original took the field by storm, and today's car is nine-tenths as terrific,” they write, while Edmunds calls this generation “more stylish” than the first M sedan Infiniti sold in the United States. For the new year at Infiniti, 2008 M35s and M45s differ little from each other "aside from the badging," says Cars.com. They describe the M as having "a long wheelbase...and short overhangs." For 2008, the Infiniti M has an "enhanced, cleaner appearance...including revised front and rear fascias, grille, rear fender panels, rear decklid and taillights, and updated 18- and 19-inch wheels," reports Edmunds, which adds the latest Infiniti M is "a much more alluring and well-rounded midsize performance sedan with the form to match its already impressive function." The 2008 Infiniti M with the optional Sport Package has "unique alloy rims, more aggressive front and rear soft-trim contours, integrated side sills and charcoal-colored headlamp bezels," attests Kelley Blue Book.

"Warm and accommodating," "contemporary classic," and "upscale" are words used to describe the Infiniti 2008 M interior in various reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. Edmunds writes of the 2008 Infiniti M, "most shoppers will discover a spacious interior that's both warm and accommodating...though some might find minor quibbles with cabin design." The Infiniti M cabin has a "warm, upscale ambiance," coos Consumer Guide, adding, "Trim consists of satin-finish wood or real metal [aluminum], precise-movement switchgear, and ample soft-touch surfaces." Changes to the gauge cluster consist primarily of the addition of Infiniti's white and purple lighting motif for "even greater legibility," describes Kelley Blue Book.

Infiniti Ms with the Sport package also receive, for 2008, a distinctive interior. Edmunds explains, "Shoppers focused on the sport side of the equation will feel right at home...with [a] unique steering wheel and shifter stitching, exclusive front sport seats, aluminum cabin accents and bright-trimmed pedals."

Conclusion

The 2008 Infiniti M series stays fresh with subtle, conservative styling changes that refine its sharp looks.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
