2008 Infiniti M35 Review

2008 Infiniti M35 Review  - Reviews - Infiniti M

A car that's two years into its current design is usually beginning to show its age, especially when it has as many serious competitors as Infiniti's M sedan does. The M outpaces that trend: The 2006 original took the field by storm, and today's car is nine-tenths as terrific. In a segment whose players' strengths vary across many fronts — performance, technology, quality, reliability — the M emerges a competent choice across the board.

Infiniti sells two variants, the V-6 M35 and the V-8 M45. All-wheel-drive versions of both are also available, dubbed M35x and M45x. Ever since the brand dropped the larger Q45, the M has become its de facto flagship. As such, it's enjoyed frequent updates to stay competitive. The 2008 model sports revised styling and a handful of new technologies. Click here to see a comparison with the 2007 model.

This review covers an M35, though I've also driven the M45.
