Expert Quotes:

Nissan reckons the 2011 Infiniti M56 offers class-leading interior space, and we couldn't find any evidence to dispute this.
Inside Line

...A more user-friendly center stack that not only utilizes fewer buttons but also is angled more towards the driver.
Motor Trend

The M’s generous trunk and cabin are about the same size as in last year’s model, but the cabin is more elegant than ever.
Automobile

...Some of the plastics and rubbery compounds used elsewhere in the cabin aren't. For instance, there's a long strip of aluminum-look plastic inlaid into the fancy pants wood that kinda screams "Not quite."
Autoblog

The door panels are punctuated by elegant teardrop-shaped sculptures of metalized plastic, and genuine ash trim swabs the dash and center console in tasteful quantities.
Car and Driver

The 2013 Infiniti M sedans, while they may drive with close to the verve of the compact G sport sedans, have one very significant difference: They have usable back-seat space. The M37 and M56 also offer a smooth, refined ride, as well as top-notch interior refinement and a roomy trunk.

Front seats are exceptionally comfortable in the M, with both the driver and front passenger get ten-way power seats. There's good head and shoulder room, too, minus a little width for the thicker center console. In back, the seats are really well contoured for adults in the outboard positions, although the tall doors and rear deck can give the rear occupants a closed-in feel. Overall, while the tallest passengers might find it a little light on headroom, the M sedans don't sacrifice rear-seat comfort for looks, as do the but the 2011 M doesn’t sacrifice rear-seat comfort for its looks, as do the Jaguar XF.

The M sedans have a relatively large trunk--even though the volume number isn't spectacular, at 14.9 cubic feet, because it's not all that long. Hybrid models do sacrifice some of that due to battery storage (they have 14.9 cubic feet). otherwise there's good cabin storage, with a shallow-ish console augmented by a deep glovebox.

One of the things that the M37 and M56 do have in common with the smaller G sedans is that there's a bit more road noise than you might expect in a luxury car--even though Active Noise Control is included in all models. The V-6 in particular seems vibration-ridden. M35h hybrids, on the other hand, use a version of the somewhat smaller, smoother 3.5-liter V-6

Conclusion

The 2013 Infiniti M sedans have a spacious interior, but they're a little noisier and coarser than their luxury badge suggests.

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.
