The 2010 Infiniti M offers an abundance of standard safety features and unique safety technologies, along with mostly good crash-test results.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded "good" scores for both frontal offset and side impact tests of the Infiniti M. The Infiniti 2010 M35 rated an overall "poor" rating in the IIHS's seat-based rear-impact test, however. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not tested this Infiniti.

All 2010 Infiniti M35 and M45 sedans come standard with dual front, side, and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes; and traction and stability control. High-intensity discharge lamps are standard on all but one M sedan; Kelley Blue Book reports, "Bi-xenon adaptive front lighting is optional in the M35x but standard on all other M models...[and] their brilliant blue-white beams...provide an even better look at what lies ahead."

Lane-departure warning and smart cruise control systems are fitted, along with a rearview camera, for cautious drivers who appreciate electronic assistance while driving. Cars.com reports a Technology Package adds "adaptive cruise control, Preview Braking and Lane Departure Warning" to the M. In addition, the bundle includes Lane Departure Prevention, which "applies individual brakes to nudge the car back on course"-a feeling that can take some getting used to.

Visibility from the driver's seat of the Infiniti M isn't addressed much in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, save for Cars.com's mention of the RearView Monitor, which "shows the view behind the car when the transmission is in Reverse."

Conclusion

The 2010 Infiniti M35 and M45 are safe, secure sedans-especially when you factor in all of the available active-safety options.

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.
