2007 Infiniti M Offers Premium Luxury, Athletic Performance and Intuitive Technology

The Infiniti M, which went on sale as an all-new 2006 model in 2005, captured essential elements of both a luxury performance sedan and an award-winning sports sedan, and developed them into a new level of engaging luxury and performance. The Infiniti M also has captured a number of prestigious accolades, including being named the top-ranked midsize premium sedan in the J.D. Power and Associates 2006 Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study. Together wîth the sporty G35, the rugged Infiniti FX and the luxurious Infiniti QX, the 2007 M gives Infiniti an exceptional lineup of dynamic luxury performance vehicles.

For 2007, the Infiniti M offers new option packages and more standard features. It is again offered in five models: the M35 Luxury (V6 rear-wheel drive), M35 Sport (V6 rear-wheel drive wîth Rear Active Steer and 19-inch wheels and tires), M35x AWD (V6 all-wheel drive), M45 Luxury (V8 rear-wheel drive) and M45 Sport (V8 rear-wheel drive wîth Rear Active Steer and 19-inch wheels and tires).

New option packages and standard features highlight the 2007 M, including a new Advanced Technology Package. Infiniti M models are equipped wîth an advanced 5-speed automatic transmission wîth manual shift mode and downshift rev matching. Other standard features include leather-appointed seats, Intelligent Key wîth push button ignition, Infiniti Voice Recognition, Bluetooth® wireless technology, in-dash 6-disc changer wîth MP3 playback capability, improved Infiniti Vehicle Information System wîth 7-inch LCD screen and easy-to-use controls mounted on both the instrument panel and the §teering wheel.

Also standard are Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), 10-way power driver's and front passenger's seats, power-sliding sunroof and Advanced Air Bag System (AABS).

The M35 Sport and M45 Sport models offer standard 19-inch wheels and tires (18-inch wheels and tires are standard on non-Sport models), sport-tuned suspension wîth Rear Active Steer, xenon headlamps wîth Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS), climate controlled front sport seats and aluminum interior trim accents.

'The Infiniti M is an expression of power, refinement, technology and design – all the things that make Infiniti owners' hearts pound,' said Mark Igo, vice president and general manager, Infiniti Division. 'The M captures the soul of the Infiniti brand, expressing it in invigorating, forward thinking ways.'

An Enhanced FM PlatformThe Infiniti M is available wîth a choice of V8 or V6 engines, wîth the vehicles designated M45 and M35, respectively. The M45 features a powerful DOHC 4.5-liter V8, shared wîth the premium FX45. It is rated at 325 horsepower and 336 lb-ft of torque. The M35 utilizes an advanced DOHC 3.5-liter V6 rated at 275 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. The V6 is part of the award-winning VQ engine series also found in the G35 and FX35.

Every Infiniti M utilizes an enhanced next-generation FM (Front Mid-ship) platform currently used on the G35 sedan, G35 coupe and FX premium crossover SÚV. Approximately 60 percent of the platform design and components have been enhanced for use wîth the M. Like the previous generation, the redefined FM platform positions the engine behind the front axle. This positioning results in an optimized front-to-rear weight balance, which factors in weight transfer during key handling maneuvers.

The Infiniti M's large diameter wheels and tires are positioned out near the corners of the vehicle, helping to further enhance handling and driving excitement. The M suspension is an independent double-wishbone design in front and multi-link independent system in the rear.

Sensuous Exterior Design

From a design standpoint, the Infiniti M optimizes both luxury and sport styling to create a dynamic visual appeal. The expressive, jewel-like grille and crystal-look headlight clusters offer a luxurious appeal, while large 18- or 19-inch wheels and low profile tires, a stable posture wîth wide track, and short overhangs contribute to the sportiness of the design.

The Infiniti M also offers a low, aggressive hood line, which flows into the anchored shoulders and contributes to the sporty, powerful silhouette. The roofline is fluid, while the hood and front fenders are sculpted to provide a solid, muscular look. In the rear, L-shaped LED taillights and quad tailpipes finish out the exterior design.

The Infiniti M's long wheelbase and short overhangs provide a roomy interior and sporty exterior dimensions. Wide front and rear tracks add to handling stability, while the overall width enhances interior and trunk volume. Also featured are lightweight body components, including aluminum-alloy inner and outer door panels, hood and decklid panels. The M's aerodynamic design results in zero front lift and, wîth the available rear spoiler, offers zero rear lift.

Confident, Explosive Performance and Rear Active Steer

At the heart of the Infiniti M is the high-performance power of the V8 or V6 powerplants, each mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission wîth manual shift mode and downshift rev matching.

The advanced braking system is designed to offer confidence-inspiring pedal feel and enhanced pedal response, while the §teering system is designed to provide an engaging driving experience through a high-flow hydraulic boost system wîth micro-polished §teering gear and robust rack mounting. Every Infiniti M also features Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC).

Along wîth its advanced engine design, the Infiniti M is also offered wîth a state-of-the-art intelligent all-wheel drive system. The M35 AWD model features Infiniti's ATTESA E-TS (Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All Electronic Torque Split) all-wheel drive system, which is also utilized on the Infiniti FX45 and FX35 AWD premium crossover SÚVs and G35x AWD sedan. (concept carz)

The system's advanced torque split control strategy automatically transfers optimum torque to the wheels according to road and driving conditions. It provides outstanding cornering capability similar to a sports car due to optimum torque distribution to the front and rear wheels. Combined wîth the vehicle's VDC system, each wheel receives the appropriate amount of torque when needed.

The handling and stability of the Infiniti M Sport models is further optimized by Infiniti's Rear Active Steer system. Únlike passive rear §teering systems, this design features precise, electronic motor-driven control. This system helps improve the M Sport's handling performance by adjusting the geometry of the rear suspension according to §teering input and vehicle speed.

The system's electronic control unit calculates the desired vehicle dynamics from a series of sensors, including vehicle speed and §teering angle, and directs the system actuator to change rear geometry by moving both rear suspension lower links. The result is sports car-like agility, combined wîth luxury sedan stability and ride quality.

A Highly Personalized, Enriching Interior Atmosphere

The M's interior design engages the senses in invigorating ways, combining a driver-oriented cockpit wîth a graceful, Infiniti level of luxury and design detail.

The modern and intuitive interior layout focuses on purposeful simplicity. Interior features include genuine Rosewood or aluminum trim, leather-appointed seats, Solar Eclipse instrument lighting system, and available features such as climate controlled front seats, heated power reclining rear seats and advanced Bose® Studio Surround ™sound system wîth digital 5.1-channel decoding and 14 speakers including two personal speakers mounted in the shoulders of each front seat.

The interior also offers an array of driver and passenger-oriented technology features, including the Infiniti Intelligent Key system wîth Push Button Start. This system eliminates the need to take the key fob out of your pocket when locking and unlocking the car, accessing the trunk or starting the engine. Other available features include RearView Monitor, Intelligent Cruise Control and Infiniti DVD-based Navigation System wîth a new user interface featuring voice-activated destination entry as well as HVAC and audio control.

5-speed Automatic
The Infiniti M is also a showcase for the latest in Infiniti safety technology, including an available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system. The system recognizes lane markings and calculates the lateral distance between the vehicle and the lane marking, along wîth vehicle speed relative to the marking, and generates an audible signal to warn the driver of a pending, unintended lane departure. Engagement of the turn signal turns off the system, which also features a cancel switch.

'Over 55 percent of fatal auto accidents in the Únited States are caused by lane departures, including single vehicle and head-on accidents,' said Igo. 'The LDW system is an important advancement in vehicle safety technology.'

Other safety features include an Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) wîth dual-stage front supplemental air bags wîth Occupant Classification System and roof-mounted side-impact curtain air bags and available brake operated front pre-crash seat belts, which tighten under emergency braking in anticipation of an evasive maneuver or crash.

The Evolution of Luxury


'Luxury has evolved from what was once traditional, status-oriented luxury, to what has come to be a more meaningful, personal approach to luxury,' said Igo. The exhilarating Infiniti M is yet another example of Infiniti's leadership in providing luxury that appeals to both the soul and intelligence of the driver.'
