The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Infiniti M Series represents a compromise between sport and luxury—but a pleasant one that many shoppers should contemplate. The 2009 Acura RL tops safety rankings and bristles with technology, but its detached driving feel and over-the-top front-end styling remove it from the best-in-class competition.
